Technical

The contaminant and application details determine the ideal filtration solution. Jonell Systems’ experts evaluate the process, analyze the requirements, and suggest the best filtration solution for your process. This article on selecting the right filter cartridge provides guidance on the various things to consider.

Cartridge filters keep contaminants out of your equipment and products. It is important to replace them in a timely manner to maintain the efficiency of your filtration solution. Jonell Systems datasheets typically provide the recommended change out differential pressure (dP) and monitoring in real-time is one way to tell whether it’s time for a filter change-out.

Scheduled maintenance intervals may also be used for filter change outs to optimize uptime but it is important for this schedule to be based on a thorough understanding of your unique process and filter demands.

The contaminant and application details determine the ideal filtration solution. Pleated filters typically use the “surface” to hold the contaminants and are often recommended when dealing with contaminants with similar size particles.

Depth filters use “multiple layers” to catch the contaminants and often different layers can catch contaminants of different sizes in many cases.

Both are effective in different applications and our technical experts can guide you through the selection process for your specific application.
