A common issue among compressed gas and sample process applications is the removal of large amounts of liquid and particulate contaminants. In both cases the element can become overwhelmed, and the life and performance may be dramatically reduced. Large volumes of liquid can flood a coalescing element and high particulate loading can blind off an element.
A simple solution is a filter housing without the filter element, but rather a hollow stack. The stack causes a dramatic change in the airflow direction and acts as a baffle to knock out the vast majority of contaminants. The catchpot housings should be followed by a final filter to remove any residual condensation and particulate.
All of our filter housings can be converted to “catchpots” for removing bulk contaminants. Simply add the suffix “CP” to any housing code for a catchpot version of the filter.Product Bulletin Download
