Stop Electrostatic Charge Accumulation in Lube/Hydraulic Systems
Several methods have been investigated to oil-lubricated charge generation in oil-lubricated systems and prevent damage that can occur if the electrostatic discharge operates unchecked. One method involves adding an antistatic additive (ASA) to the liquid, but it has been restricted to fuel applications. Because filters can play a role in electrostatic charge generation, other methods used various materials in the construction of the filter element to offset the charge generated by one layer, or the use of conducting layers and metal meshes, but the results prove to be system-dependent. The approach taken by Pall Corporation involves designing the filter material to generate and accumulate significantly less charge (antistatic element).
Enhance Baghouse Performance with an Innovative Bags
There have been many articles published that focus on advances in industrial dust collector filters, but the lion’s share of them focused on dust collectors using cartridge filters. While collectors with cartridges offer many advantages, there are thousands of facilities in North America still buying and operating baghouses. This paper addresses the filtration needs of these baghouse owners and operators.
Chemical Cost Comparison of Deaerator vs. Liqui-Cel Contactor
This technical brief compares the performance and operating costs
of Liqui-Cel membrane contactors with conventional forced draft tower technology for CO₂ removal. This brief will also show why membrane degassing is the economical and value added technology of choice for oxygen and carbon dioxide removal from water.
Evalute Side Stream Filtration Options for Cooling Towers
When considering a side stream filtration system, there are several key parameters that are important to weigh including the level of particle removal, filtration sizing, installation methods, and cost and water savings potential. Carefully examine key features to properly specify the proper side stream filtration system.
