Eaton Launches New DCF-3000 Mechanically Cleaned Filter to Handle Highly Viscous Liquids in Demanding Applications

TINTON FALLS, N.J. – Power management company Eaton has launched its new DCF-3000 mechanically cleaned filter that provides a cost-effective filtration solution capable of processing highly viscous liquids in challenging conditions.

The superior filtering performance of the DCF-3000 filter reduces product loss and provides a more thorough contaminant purge in a highly concentrated waste stream. The DCF-3000 filter also eliminates or minimizes the need for disposable filter bags and cartridges, which reduces operator handling, inventory costs and landfill waste. The filter can handle a wide range of filtration needs, including demanding applications that filter thick liquids such as paper coatings, ethanol, machining coolants, detergents, petroleum-based greases, adhesives, hot fry oils, ink and chocolate.

“Without a specialized system, companies running applications that require filtration of highly-viscous liquids like detergents, ink and oil encounter unique challenges,” said Mary Jo Surges, vice president and general manager of the Filtration business. “Our DCF-3000 filter solution increases productivity, reduces product loss and operates in a variety of harsh environments.”

The dual cleaning disc and twin actuator design of the DCF-3000 mechanically cleaned filter can be fabricated in a variety of materials and options with temperatures up to 400°F. It is ideal for highly viscous, abrasive or sticky liquids with flow rates of up to 500 GPM. For water-like liquids, it can handle flow rates up to 1500 GPM.

Other features include:

• Improves safety by reducing or eliminating operator intervention
• Maximizes uptime by limiting the need for maintenance
• Fits most installations, which lowers capital costs
