Coalescing Filter Elements
Swift Filters manufactures coalescing filter elements to separate liquid aerosols such as water and oil from air or gas streams. The elements have a hydrophilic core to condense liquid aerosols into droplets that are large enough to be drained away via gravity. Coalescing filters are a dual function product: they also remove submicron solids.
Coalescing filter elements are also used to separate immiscible liquids such as water from fuels and oils with different densities. In this role, they can provide dry, particulate-free jet fuels, diesel fuel, turbine fuel, lube oil or insulating oil.
Coalescing filter elements are widely employed in
- compressed air filtration
- mist elimination
- refrigeration systems
- air/oil separation
- compressed natural gas filtration
