New, patent pending filter elements from Eaton Filtration have combined both bag and cartridge filters into one single filtration element for optimum filtration performance. Featuring a 7% greater surface area, existing systems that use the filter element experience longer filter element life and less changing, resulting in reduced running costs. Benefits of this filter element include lower running costs due to the high flow rates possible with HAYFLOW filter element. Other benefits of this filter element include reduced filter housing size by up to 50% thus lowering the initial cost of the system.
Two concentric cylinders of high-quality extended life are the heart of the Eaton filter media. These cylinders are formed using unique welding technology to create a no by-pass seam. The diameter of the cylinder ion the filtration element is the same size as a standard filter bag, so retrofitting into existing systems is easy. The HAYFLOW filter element is fitted with the patented Sentinel sealing ring which ensures a positive seal with the filter vessel to protect against bypass of the process media.
Changing a HAYFLOW filter element can actually be easier than changing a filter bag, because of its revolutionary design, which only retains 25% of the residual liquid volume of a similarly sized filter bag. When the element needs to be changed, it weighs up to 75% less than a filter bag. A full bag can weigh up to 15 kg, so weight is an important consideration for the system operator.
