Air Gas and Steam Filters

Steam

No matter what the industry, contamination of steam, for general use or culinary purposes, can dramatically increase maintenance costs and even shut your process or plant down.
That’s why leading companies all over the world rely on R.P. Adams steam filters to prevent clogging and friction wear caused by dirt, rust, pipe scale, solid contaminants such as particles of packing and gasket materials, lubricants and boiler feed water additives.
R.P. Adams’ GP Filters, you simply can’t find more effective or reliable filtration of steam for direct infusion and to protect sensitive process equipment. Just what you’d expect from the pioneer of advanced filtration technology.

 FILTER FEATURES

 

Two-Step Separation Guarantees Maximum Filtration
Steam is directed in a tangential flow around the element and against the inside wall, providing centrifugal separation of larger particles and droplets. Contaminants are captured in patented vertical slots located on the filter’s side walls. A steam flow interrupter at the bottom of the unit improves draining efficiency and reduces condensate pick-up from liquid collected before the drain. The steam is then diffused through the Poro-Carbon tube to achieve maximum filtration.

Rugged Construction
The Poro-Carbon element and corrosion-resistant cast ductile iron filter body on sizes 1/2” to 3” withstand temperatures up to 500ºF. For sizes 4” and larger, a combination of fabricated carbon steel and cast iron is furnished. Units also are available in stainless steel construction

Meeting Industry Standards
GP filters meet 3A Standards, and are designed for culinary steam use as out-lined by the Dairy and Food Industries Supply Association. In addition, filters are designed for, and can be certified to meet the requirements of Section VIII, Division 1, of the ASME code.

Design Pressures to 400 PSIG
GP Filters are capable of handling pressures up to 400 PSIG. Standard units with design pressures of 100 PSIG and 200 PSIG are available from stock

Inline Process Connections Easy Installation
Inlet and outlet connections are in line with process piping to simplify installation.

 

ELEMENT FEATURES

 

Two Micron Filtration
The Poro-Carbon element removes 95% of particles that are two micron or larger.

Durable Tube Construction
Filter element is a pure inert amorphous carbon structure which provides superior durability to handle the toughest applications. There are no moving parts. The Poro-Carbon tube is directly attached to the filter cover which makes it easy to remove and replace the element.

Cleanable Filter Element
The Poro-Carbon element can be cleaned and reused for years of effective filtration.

Guaranteed Protection
Unlike other filter cartridges, the Poro-Carbon element will never collapse, even when plugged, to fully protect your process and processing equipment

APPLICATIONS

 

General Purpose
Prevents clogging and friction wear caused by dirt, rust, pipe scale, solid contaminants, lubricants, and non-volatile boiler feed water additives. Filters can be used at point of use or in the main process stream.

 

Food Processing
Provides filtered steam for direct heating of food products, cooking, pasteurization and blanching

 

Dairy
Filtered steam is injected into milk for odor control or steam infusion

 

Pharmaceutical
Culinary steam is routinely required in the manufacture of medicinal products.
