Profile A/S 系列过滤器滤芯

Profile® A/S Series filters1 are constructed of an all polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) filter medium with 316 stainless steel cores as standard.The elements have an absolute rated downstream section, and a continuously profiled pore size upstream section, which increases service life many-fold.Note the photomicrograph below.The elements are available in a broad range of absolute removal ratings.Refer to Table 1.  (more)

(2) The test procedure used for liquid service rating is an adaptation of ANSI T3.10.8.8R1-1990, modified to determine the micron size above which particles are quantitatively removed.
(3) Pressure drop in PSI per GPM water for a single 10" module.Multiply this value by the required flow to determine the total aqueous pressure drop.Next, for fluids other than water, multiply by viscosity in centipoise.If this calculated pressure drop is excessive, then divide this value by the number of 10" modules required to reduce this pressure drop to an acceptable level.

The Profile A/S Series filter elements are aligned within 颇尔 Profile II housings by installing the elements onto a tie rod.The elements are then secured in place by a seal nut.When fully engaged, the tie-rod/seal nut assembly forms a knife edge sealing surface embedded into the filter medium at both the top and bottom of the element.The elements are secured in competitive housings by spring engaged sealing surfaces.



The Profile A/S filter has numerous applications in a broad range of industries that include chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage industries.典型应用包括:
  • Amine
  • 热水
  • Glycol
  • Sulfolane
  • 冷凝水
  • 二氯甲烷
  • Naphtha
  • Potassium Hydroxide
  • Oxo Alcohols

The fibers in Profile A/S filters are continuous, for practical purposes.No binder resin or surfactants are used and the fibers are “bonded” by intertwining during the manufacturing process.The filter components meet the specifications for biological tests listed in the current revision of USP for Class VI plastics at 121°C.Because of the inertness of the polyphenylene sulfide medium, Profile A/S elements can be used with many fluids up to 400°F(205°C).Please refer to Table 2 for more details.
