Vertical Filter/SeparatorsforTank Farms
Compact V and VV Series Filter/Separators comply fully with API Bulletin 1581, Third Edition, requirements for Class B equipment.
Compact Filter/ Separator Vessels for Fixed Installations
Fuel MonitorsforMobile Refueling Trucks
Filters with superior performance and reliability for assuring clean, dry fuel, normally used at the final point in an aircraft fueling system.
Custom Designed 3l-400-20
Horizontal Filter / Separator / Monitors
forSkid Refueling Components
Filters designed to remove particles and coalesce emulsified water from hydrocarbon fluids.
The horizontal filter/separator design provides more convenient access to the cartridges than the vertical design.
VF Series Fluid Filters
Vertically oriented filters using industry-standard pleated paper media to remove particulate to 0.5 microns.
They can be constructed to house numerous cartridges within a variety of diameters to accommodate flow rates.
FWH Micron Filters
Vertically oriented filters designed to remove solid contaminants from a liquid stream using standard spunyarn cartridges which create effective separation using depth filtration. May also accommodate pleated elements.
As standard or custom design, the BF series filters are able to handle high flow rates and large concentrations of particulate for a wide range of liquids.
Constructed to ASME Sec.VIII, MBF series filters are available as code or non-code vessels.
Horizontally oriented vessels containing replaceable coalescent filter packs. A sump collects separated water and filtered contaminant for easy removal.
