Electric Utility Filter Housing

The ErtelAlsop 12UF Electric Utility Filter Housing series is specially designed for use in the electric utility industry. Used in the filtration of steam turbine, voltage regulator and circuit breaker oils for removal of water from insulating oil, and to eliminate water induced hazes, these units can be custom fabricated to fit your specific application.

The ErtelAlsop series of utility filters and filter units are available in a wide range of configurations. Available in Portable Carts, Handtruck or Over-the-Road Trailer Designs.

Versatility and perfomance; Coupled with the ErtelAlsop Pak lenticular filter module concept of liquid filtration, you can obtain filtration of insulating oils which meet original manufacturers specifications. Flow rates for filter units range from 15 GPM to 100 GPM.

Materials of construction include Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel or Polypropylene. Look for the AquaKv-Pak, ZetaDri-Pak and Disc-Pak for maintaining your insulating oil to your Kv specification.

Retention of carbon and water is made easy with the enclosed Pak lenticular filter module concept of liquid filtration.

Tests have shown, depending on temperature, flow rate and oil condition, that the AquaKv-Pak and ZetaDri-Pak will filter carbon and absorb a minimum of 128 ounces of water per Pak lenticular filter module cartridge, exhibiting a mechanical shut off upon dramatic pressure rise, without the need for two different cartridges.

The AquaKv-Pak and ZetaDri-Pak will continue to renew oil until maximum H2O absorption is reached.

The AquaKv-Pak, ZetaDri-Pak and Disc-Pak are available in retention values from 15 microns to 0.5 microns.
