Our UHPC-SL Filter Series is specially designed for high pressure compressed gas coalescing filtration. These housings are rated for 5,700 PSIG and manufactured to ASME B31.3 specifications.
The UHPC–SL Series is machined of carbon steel and completely coated with nickel/chrome plating for rust protection. The assemblies provide high efficiency filtration with a choice of three grades of robust coalescing filter cartridges. Custom configurations are readily available.
Our coalescing microfiber elements have integral inner and outer SS cages, with metal end caps for added strength, and a captured O-ring for a positive seal. The standard element seals are Buna-N. The housing seals are matched to the element seals. When ordering a non-standard seal for the housing, be sure to add the appropriate suffix to end of element part number; V =Viton, E =EPDM, KZ =Kalrez (i.e. SL38-172-70CSX3-V). Five-Layer Stainless Steel elements are also available in a variety of microns, for bulk contaminates.
Liquid aerosols, primarily lube oil carryover is common in high pressure compression systems. Our reinforced microfiber coalescing elements are an ideal solution since the glass fiber is excellent at capturing submicron aerosols. A 1.25” reservoir area allows collection of large volumes of liquid before draining.
The SL series of spring-loaded elements are constructed with inner and outer stainless steel cages to provide higher differential ratings. The inner and outer stainless steel support cores along with the spring at the base of the cartridge provide protection from dynamic pressure swings.
We recommend using our CS grade (all glass fiber) coalescing spring loaded elements for continuous removal of liquids without the loss of efficiency in natural gas service. For extreme applications we recommend our line of “RC” Reinforced Coalescing Cartridges. These cartridges consist of a borosilicate glass inner layer sandwiched between two, rayon/phenolic layers. The reinforced inner/outer layers provide excellent strength.
We also offer a coalescing element encapsulated with a five layer stainless steel element for extreme service. Please consult us for the details.
