Oil and gas companies are forever reliant on efficiency, safety and the highest quality of systems. This is why a highly effective and doubly reliable filtration and separation system is the need of the hour. Advanced filtration technology spells extended equipment life, lesser downtime and better cost savings. Engineers at Sungov Engineering, design and manufacture state-of-the-art separation solutions and coalescing filter elements to meet even the most demanding of processing and production requirements. In this blog, we will have a look at what are the filters and coalescers that Sungov Engineering manufactures and how best these can help your process. So, read on!
What is the difference between a filter and a coalescer?
A filter and a coalescing filter are two different equipment with the similar function of separating and removing contamination from fluids and gases. A filter is capable of removing suspended and solid particles from a fluid by trapping particles inside the filtering medium. A coalescer on the other hand, eliminates droplets of liquid from the gas. With the help of physical principles such as centrifugal force and gravity, they help in bringing together the contaminants and form large particles to expunge them. In industrial processes, coalescing filter separators help remove water and other contaminants from fuels.
Different types of filters and coalescers that Sungov Engineering manufactures:
To meet the demanding processing needs, our company houses a wide variety of filtration applications and you can be assured that you are in the industry’s finest hands if you are looking to maintain and enhance your operational performance.
Basket Filter: An industrial filtration product that protects pumps, valves, heat exchangers and other pipeline products. Click here to read more about our basket filter.
Cartridge Filter: These filters use physical mechanical separation to separate contaminants from liquid and gas. To know more about our cartridge filter, click here.
Centrifugal Separators: As the name suggests, these kinds of filters use the principle of centrifugal force to bring about a separation. To know more about Sungov’s centrifugal separator models, click here.
Coalescers: These are advanced separation products that deploy the principle of coalescence. This means that several liquid droplets come together to form large droplets. Sungov Engineering ranks among the top coalescing filter manufacturers in the world and here is more about our coalescers.
Filter Separator: The combination of a filter and a coalescer together in a single assembly is the filter separator. Check out how Sungov Engineering can help manufacture the perfect filter separator for your operation.
Knockout Drums: These are two-phase liquid gas separators that effectively separate oil and water from gas pipelines. Get more details about our knockout drums here.
Self-Cleaning Filters: With the help of backflushing technology, our self-cleaning filters help in operating the filtration cycle without the trouble of downtime. See here to know more about our self-cleaning filters.
Strainers: For the protection of industrial equipment, Sungov Engineering manufactures different types of strainers such as Y Strainer, Basket Strainer, T Strainer, Conical Strainer and Duplex Strainer. To know more about our strainer products, click here.
What are the main factors to consider when selecting a filter or a coalescer for applications?
When you are about to select a filter or a coalescer for an industrial application there are several factors you must bear in mind:
- The size and type of the contamination
- The gas or fluid flow rate. Higher the flow, the larger the filter or coalescer
- The process & physical parameters of the gas or fluid determine the selection of the filter or coalescer
- The environment (humidity, temperature, corrosiveness) impacts the selection
