Original Press Release:
Filter Elements Provide Safer Changeouts, Greater Efficiencies for Gas Processing Industry
Clark-Reliance Corporation has announced a new line of coalescing filter elements for the gas processing industry. The new VertexCore™ filter elements have been designed to eliminate unsafe filter element changeout techniques while increasing filtration efficiencies. VertexCore elements have a fixed extension that is welded to the element end cap, which allows maintenance staff to easily remove and replace elements without exposing their head, shoulders, torso or legs to a confined space. This design feature eliminates the widespread behavior of climbing into or reaching into filtration pressure vessels to remove or replace elements. The VertexCore extensions and hold down rods, while facilitating element replacement, also provide a barrier to prevent operator entry, a positive reinforcement to confined space safety regulations. More information is available at http://crfiltrationsolutions.com/vertexcore/.
VertexCore coalescing filter elements feature multi-layer construction to maximize efficiency, with third party testing confirming they meet ANSI/CAGI 400 test standards. Removal efficiencies are down to 0.3 micron at 99.98% with maximum carryover of 0.1PPMW. Because they are more efficient, VertexCore elements can be retrofitted to existing pressure vessels to eliminate carryover created by inadequate element spacing of standard elements.
VertexCore coalescing filter elements are designed for critical use applications in the power generation, oil and gas industries or wherever gas processing occurs.
