In the Chemical Filtration Market, from scale-up to full production capacity, depth filters are used throughout the manufacturing process to perform critical separations. Depth filtration is used in applications such as silicone, soaps, coatings, resins, inks, detergents, cutting oils, plating and etching solutions, and volatile liquids such as kerosene, alcohol, solvents, varnishes and cleaning fluids to ensure consistent lot to lot production and product specifications. The removal of excess oils, color, odor, particulate and undissolved components is easily achieved through the use of ErtelAlsop depth filter media and machinery.
Many chemical facilities still use cast-iron plate and frame filters with cloth filter paper and diatomaceous earth or horizontal plate filters. These technologies, which served their purpose in the past, can now be inefficient and labor-intensive., An ErtelAlsop Zeta-Pak® Filter Housing can replace these existing modes of filtration by providing an enclosed cartridge style configuration. A Zeta-Pak® Housing provides a contained environment and allows for minimal downtime during filter change-out. ErtelAlsop also can provide the ZetaDri-Pak® for the separation of water induced haze from oil based products. The ZetaDri-Pak® also provides the same particulate filtration available in the standard Zeta-Pak®, thereby providing a 2 phase separation. Contact your local authorized distributor or ErtelAlsop directly to schedule on-site testing to see if this replacement is right for you. For the filtration of volatile liquids, the use of an ErtelAlsop Pak™ Housing or Vapor-Master™ Enclosed Plate and Frame Filter is the industry standard in filtration equipment. Both provide vapor-tight enclosed filtration environments to ensure that your chemical filtration process runs efficiently. These filters are particularly effective in the filtration of solvents, coatings, varnishes, resins, inks, and silicone.
