|COST EFFICIENCY COMPARISON OF FILSTAR AND OTHERS||FIVE MERITS OF FILSTAR|
Available filters have internal filter elements that needs to be replaced regularly to maintain filtration accuracy. Replacing elements requires manpower, temporary recess of equipment and/or the entire production line.
The elementless filter FILSTAR does not require any of the above. It's highly cost efficient!
FILSTAR requires no maintenance. It's clog-free!
Used filter elements become costly industrial wastes. FILSTAR improves company's environmental awareness and image and also improves ISO 14001 compliance.
|4. Wide Range
Filtration accuracy of average 90% to max. 98% separation. Solid separation from 10 microns to 2 mm or more. (1 micron on request.) Flux volume from 8 to 250 litres per minute and more on special request. Standard material is Stainless Steel but can be manufactured with other materials e.g. PVC, PP, Titanium, etc. to meet customer's needs.
|5. Prolonged Duration
Using FILSTAR as a pre-filter will prolong the element life of the main fine solids filter. This leads to reduction of element exchange frequency, industrial waste and mostly importantly, cost!
