Industrial Applications of Coalescer filter cartridges

The coalescer filter cartridge is a device that is designed to remove the aerosols of oil and water from compressed air. The direction of flowing the coalescing filter cartridge is from the inside of the filter element to the outside of the filter element. There are three methods to remove the liquid contaminants which are used by the coalescer filter cartridges. These methods are mentioned below:

  • Direct impact
  • Diffusion
  • Interception

Types of coalescer:

There are basically two types of the coalescer. These types are given below:

  • Mechanical coalescer: These types of coalescer use a filter in order to make droplets coalesce. This coalescer operates by the method of physical alteration which is applied in the oil and gas industries across the globe for the removal of hydrocarbon condensate or water.
  • Electrical coalescer: These types of coalescer use an AC or DC electric fields. In order to increase the size of the droplet, they induce droplet coalescence in water-in-crude-oil emulsions. The AC or Dc electric fields are achieved under the conditions of turbulent-flow which helps in increasing the collision frequency between the droplets of water.

The performance of this filter cartridge is best when it is situated at the lowest temperature and the highest pressure in the system of compressed air. Along with the liquid contaminants, this filter removes the solid contaminants too from the compressed air.

Things that show the need for changing the coalescer filter cartridge:

There are various things that show the need for changing the coalescer filter cartridge. Some of these things are mentioned below:

  • The first thing that needs to be considered is the noise. This means that if your filter starts creating noise of clunking then there is a need for changing the filter.
  • If the filter that you are using does not fulfill its process, then there is a need for changing the filter. This simply means that if the filter is not separating the liquid and other substances properly then it gets damaged and it must need to be changed quickly as soon as possible.
  • While changing the part of the filter, if you are facing any problem then it simply means that there is a need to replace the filter.
  • While working with this filter, if you feel any burning smell of any smoke or any other thing similar to this, then the filter gets burned and it needs to be changed.
  • If the filter that you are using starts leaking the fluid while performing the process then it shows that there is a need for changing the coalescer filter cartridge.
