New “RPT” Grade Hydrocarbon Free PTFE Bonded Microfiber Elements

Our New “RPT” Grade Hydrocarbon Free Microfiber Elements are now available for immediate delivery. These filter elements combine the best of our standard “K” grade elements and our “S” grade elements for critical emission testing. Our unique PTFE bonding process provides low fiber migration like our “K” type elements and has the ability to reach […] Read more »

Compressor Stations

Compressor stations are an integral part of the natural gas transport system since these stations move the gas to market through the pipeline network. These are typically spread 40 to 60 miles apart and compress natural gas to move it through the pipelines to the final destination. Most stations use either a Turbine/Centrifugal Compressor or […] Read more »

Why Use A Pleated Cartridge?

Pleated elements or cartridges as they also referred to are designed to remove particulates from gaseous and liquid streams.  They do not coalesce liquids. Pleated Cartridges can have up to 3 times the surface area of standard depth filters thus offering exceptional life for capturing particulate. Typically, Pressure Drop is the reason that a filter […] Read more »

How Coalescing Filtration Works

Borosilicate glass microfibers are considered to be the ideal filter media available for the coalescing of liquid aerosols. This material is neither liquid adsorbent nor absorbent and consequently, is superior for retaining its original properties while in service. The C-Type element has a two-layer structure, an inner particle capture-layer and an outer drainage layer. Liquid […] Read more »

Stainless Steel Elements

Our Stainless Steel elements offer excellent chemical resistance and maximum differential pressure drop ratings.  Try them in your most demanding applications. Our Stainless Steel elements are recommended for filtration of heavily contaminated gases, liquids, polymers, and steam, since they are re-cleanable by back-flushing or ultrasonic cleaning.  They should also be exclusively used in our FAST LOOP […] Read more »

Proper Placement of Coalescing Filters

Coalescing filters are designed to remove condensed water droplets in an air or gas stream.  Remember the filters should be placed as close as possible to the application (valve, meter, instrumentation, regulator) they are protecting.  They should also be placed in the coolest spot in the line to assure that condensation does not happen post […] Read more »

PTFE, Kynar, Hastelloy, Monel and More

We offer many of our standard housings in PTFE, Hastelloy, Monel, Titanium, Inconel, and other machinable materials.  PTFE is in stock for immediate delivery and typically we keep a handful of small Hastelloy and Monel units in stock, otherwise delivery is normally within four weeks ARO. If your process stream or environment is corrosive, we […] Read more »

Sintered Polyethylene (PEL) Elements for Liquid Service

Our high efficiency PEL filter elements are constructed from virgin polyethylene (H.D.P.E.). The material is in powdered/granular form and then compressed into a sintered tube. This process allows the filter element to be free from foreign binders. Thus, the only compatibility issue is with polyethylene. No end caps or gaskets are necessary to seal the […] Read more »

Sintered Polyethylene (PEL) Elements for Gas Service

Besides our disposable microfiber filters we also offer Sintered Polyethylene (PEL) Elements.  The PEL elements are great as pre-filters, and ideal for heavily contaminated gas systems. In compressed air / gas applications, the PEL elements may be utilized as pre-coalescers or initial coarse filters in severely contaminated systems.  The PEL’s sintered pore structure is perfect for […] Read more »

Why Specify Headline Coalescing Elements?

Borosilicate glass microfibers are considered to be the ideal filter media available for the coalescing of liquid aerosols. This material is neither liquid absorbent nor adsorbent and consequently, is superior for retaining its original properties while in service. This is extremely desired in analytical service so that the composition of the sample is not altered. […] Read more »
