Bag filters are sediment filters used for removal of solids from
a liquid stream. Bag filters can be constructed of various materials
specific to the application. Bag filtration uses either surface, or
depth filtration dependant on the material of construction. Liquid
flow is directed through a bag filter housing. As the liquid passed
through the filter bag, particulate is retained with-in the bag. Filter
bag change-out is determined by means of pressure drop across the
Available Sizes: P1, P2, P3, P4
Material: Polyester Felt, Polypropylene
Felt, Polyester Monofilament
Particle Removal: 400 - 5 micron
Features: Economical filtration, low maintenance,
high dirt holding capacity, ability to remove soft or gelatinuous
Applications include: Water/Wastewater, Coolants, Wash Booths, Paints, Waxes, Acids, Alcohols, Oils, Solvents
Roll filter media is useful for high solids, or continuous operation
applications. The disposable filter media is placed on a gravity filter
bed. Fluid is transferred to the filter, then drains by gravity through
the filter media. Solids are captured by the media and accumulate
in the form of a filter cake. As the filter cake builds and the media
becomes plugged, the filter advances depositing the filter cake and
used filter material in a hopper for disposal.
WESCOR stocks a variety of roll filter media in various materials
and weights. We also carry various rolls widths and lengths suitable
to fit most filter beds.
Applications include: Water/Wastewater, Coolants, Phosphating, Wash Booths, Greenhouse Irrigation Water, Chemical Filtration, Nozzle Protection
Cartridge filters are suitable for low volume solids filtration when
high removal efficiency is required. Cartridge filters are typically
used for low micron rating filtration applications. Liquid is transferred
into a cartridge filter housing under pressure. Solids are captured
in the cartridge as the liquid pass through. As solids accumulate
on the cartridge a pressure drop is created across the cartridge housing.
Plugged cartridges are removed from the housing and disposed of.
Features: Low maintenance, Filtration to
0.1 micron, Cost effective
Applications include: Cooling Towers, Process Fluids, Water/Wastewater, Chemical Processing, Pre-filtration for Ion Exchange/Carbon Filtration/Reverse Osmosis
Granular Activated Carbon is an efficient means of removing a broad
spectrum of contaminants from water and wastewater. It can be used
as a standalone process, or is often combined with additional treatment
methods in pre or post treatment configuration.
Carbon is suitable for removal of organic contaminants and chlorine
in a wide range of concentrations.
Wescor offers GAC in various grades available in 50lb. bag, or Bulk
bag packaging dependant on application requirement.
Contaminants removed include: Hydrocarbons, Aromatic Solvents, Chlorinated Compounds, Colour, Taste, Phenols, Pesticides, Micro Organics, Detergents
Organophillic clay media is designed for removal of oil and similar
light weight organics from water. Due to it's significant surface
area, it is capable of absorbing greater than 50% its weight in oil.
Organo-clay is a granular material which is operated in a filtration
vessel, or removable filter element.
Organo-clay may me used a standalone treatment, or as a pre-treatment
to carbon filtration systems. Organo-clay is capable of protecting
downstream filters by removing oil which quickly plugs carbon media.
Operating organo-clay as a pre-treatment to carbon is able to extend
carbon bed life by up to 500x.
Applications include: Treatment of oil, grease and other high molecular weight hydrocarbons. Pretreatment to carbon filters, polishing of oil/water separator, waste treatment and stormwater effluent.
