The Importance of Choosing the Right Filter

by Katie Robinson
For many industries filtration is a pivotal part of the production process. ​In certain instances, such as pharmaceutical testing, water treatment and food production, the quality of the filter can even affect health & safety and ultimately save lives.

Therefore, finding the best filter solution for your requirement can be integral to improving quality control, operational efficiency and ensuring consumer safety.

The purpose of filtration process is to either capture a solid material in fluids and gasses or to purify a substance by filtering out any contaminants. The effectiveness of the process can be impacted by three main challenges which include corrosion, blockages and sanitization.

Corrosive materials passing through a system can cause deterioration to the filter, rendering it ineffective. Filtering large contaminants or using dirty filters can cause blockages and cause delays in the process, which will affect operational efficiency.

The solution is to find the right material and aperture size for your filter and ensuring regular cleaning of it. Click here to read more about the importance of clean screens or get in touch with us for further advice.
