Particles to be filtered usually fall into one of two categories:




1.Non-deformable particles that under normal conditions (temperatures) do not deform. In some instances, non-deformable particles can become deformable with a temperature or chemistry change—an example of this would is a particle of resin, which at ambient temperatures may be solid, but at elevated temperatures turns liquid.

2. Deformable particles (frequently called gels) that deform when put under pressure. The amount of pressure needed to deform gels varies depending on the specific gel/particle. With deformable particles, if enough pressure is applied, the gel will deform, push out through the filter, and frequently re-agglomerate on the downstream side of the filter. Sometimes, when the particle re-agglomerates, it is larger than could be seen on the upstream side due to coalescence that may have occurred in the filter. In some instances, deformable particles can become non-deformable due to changes in temperature, chemistry, or other conditions.

We all purchase pneumatic products and once installed we forget about the importance of clean air that makes equipment work properly. Proper maintenance on your filtration system will provide the required air cleanliness your equipment needs to operate on a daily basis.

To prevent malfunctions follow the steps in this video to perform proper maintenance on your filter machine packaging.

This video will walk you through each step on how to replace both the coalescing elements and the activated carbon elements found in your tsunami filtration packing. These maintenance procedures are required every six months.
