Filter Pure introduces the new ES Series Stainless Steel Filter Bag Housing at IPPE2015!
Filter Pure located in Hall A in booth A3232 for this year’s International Production & Processing Expo will be displaying the new Pentair Industrial ES Series liquid filter bag housing. With applications that include water remediation and feed water treatment the E Series Single Liquid Bag Housings effectively remove dirt, pipe scale, and other substances from process liquids. Constructed from 304 or 316 stainless steel these housings offer outstanding durability and corrosion resistance across a wide variety of industrial and commercial applications. Quality workmanship and design assure clean effluent and consistent, reliable performance. Unfiltered liquid enters the housing above the filter bag or strainer basket, fills the interior of the housing and continues through the bag or strainer basket. Solids are trapped inside the filter bag or strainer and are easily removed when the housing is serviced. The simple to operate band clamp closure makes bag change-outs quick and easy. Vince Paglino, Industrial Filtration Specialist at Filter Pure said in regards to the opening of this years 2015 IPPE, “We are very excited to be a part of such a large international trade show representing the very latest in Industrial and Food Service water treatment technologies.” This year’s 2015 IPPE is bringing together more than 1,100 exhibitors and over 25,000 attendees in the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from January 27 – 29, 2015. We look forward to seeing you there!
With water seemingly becoming a more scarce resource, do we see it as precious or do most just regard the supply as endless? With water restrictions in place, spreading drought conditions worsening and municipalities across the world converting seawater and waste-water to potable water, you would think we are changing the way we view how precious fresh water is.
The United States Geologic Service states that Ocean water represents just over 97% of the water on Earth. Almost 70% of the 2.5% of Earth’s fresh water is in glaciers. Lakes, streams and rivers account for 1% of our planet’s freshwater. The remaining 30% is groundwater and water in underground aquifers. Agriculture is the dominant user for fresh water followed by industry, then public use. Businesses and manufacturers are realizing that now more than ever the availability of quality water can pose a risk to its business. Last year, 70% of the 180 FTSE Global 500 companies said water was a substantive risk to their business, which is up from 59% in 2011. Improper use of water and the type of water can hurt their bottom line, their end product and their credibility. Nestlé, one of the world’s largest food companies, set aside $43 million last year to build water-saving and waste-water treatment facilities. The company saved over 60% of water use per ton of product in its Spain production facility. Other companies like Coca-Cola, Ford and Google are investing in similar water saving and waste-water treatment at their facilities to conserve and protect their fresh water supplies. It also benefits their local communities as well. Freshwater demands are increasing as our population grows and availability is becoming more of a challenge. Some solutions may be that people should always do a better job at water conservation. It shouldn’t matter if it is scare or not. We should think of more ways to reduce water waste. Sink, outdoor faucets and toilets can be easily and properly maintained. Landscaping/sprinklers should be used intelligently or have systems that won’t run if not needed while raining. Send us some comments on other successful examples of water conservation methods? If you have any questions on industrial water saving techniques and equipment, please contact Vince Paglino at 1-800-942-9600 or email email@example.com
Confused about which carbon filter to use? Don’t worry! You’re not alone. Here are a few choices when considering which carbon filter to get. Granular Activated Carbon (GAC) cartridges effectively reduce unwanted tastes, odor and chlorine taste & odor from your drinking water. They are designed to allow maximum contact between the water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption. The cartridges pictured to the left are the Pentek GAC cartridges. The construction of these cartridges allow water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the cartridge, while an internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. Before the water exits the cartridge, a 20-micron post filter helps reduce carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The post-filter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket ensuring that it is firmly secured and eliminating any potential for bypass. GAC Series cartridges are available in a variety of sizes and flow rates, and effectively provide good general-purpose drinking water filtration. Carbon block cartridges are manufactured using a patented process that yields a cartridge with a nominal 5-micron filtration rating, high dirt-holding capacity. A high porosity design helps prevent the cartridge from plugging before its adsorption capacity is exhausted, maximizing the utilization of the carbon while maintaining low pressure drop. The cartridges pictured to the left are Pentek’s EP carbon block filters. They are protected by Endurawrap®, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate pre-filter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges. EP Series cartridges are manufactured entirely from FDA-compliant materials making them an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial and industrial applications. Coconut based carbon block cartridges are highly effective at reducing unwanted taste & odor and chlorine taste & odor from potable drinking water, and they are equally effective at reducing fine sediment. Coconut based carbon block cartridges are manufactured using a patented process and are made from a water-washed, coconut-carbon formulation. This process and media yield a cartridge with high chlorine taste & odor reduction capacity. The cartridges pictured to the left are Pentek’s CEP-10E and the CCBC-10. They are protected by Endurawrap®, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate pre-filter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges. They are an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial and industrial applications. They also make excellent polishing filters or pre-filters in applications requiring fine filtration and high capacity. For more information about which carbon is best for you, call us at 800-942-7873!
