Neville Chemical replaces bag filters with automatic inline filters to improve efficiency
By: Russell Finex Inc
Neville Chemical's bag filters in question were located on the molten resin line, where the resin material is heated to 400-500 degrees Fahrenheit in order to permit flow. After being filtered, the resin goes through a flaking process and becomes solidified and then packaged. The combination of the heat of the resin and buildup of contaminants causes filtration bags to load up and decompose to the point that they have to be changed at regular intervals.
All of those problems were completely eliminated when Neville Chemical replaced that bag filter system with a state-of-the-
The Russell Eco Filter® is a self-cleaning system that integrates directly into the pipeline and completely eliminates the need to change filtration bags. By means of a unique spiral wiper design, the filter element is kept continuously clean, which ensures optimum efficiency of filtration. The totally enclosed Russell Eco Filter® prevents pollutants from outside the system from contaminating the product, and protects the operators from harmful fumes and spillage. This filter also features the Russell Filter Management System™, a technology that continuously monitors the filtration system, thereby enabling the filter to be operated efficiently without operator involvement.
