What is Process Filtration?
For a complete listing of Schroeder Industries’ Process Filters, click here.
Filtration is a large focal point of what we do at Schroeder Industries.
Additionally, there are filtration solutions to improve one’s operating water quality. This includes process water, waste water, compressed gases, low-viscosity fluids, and all other types of oil, fuel, water, and compressed gases.
We’ve grown fond of the catchphrase “if it flows, it’s probably Schroeder”.
There are even solutions that remove oil from water!
The most important aspects of the application of filtration process includes: performance, efficiency, system parameters, stable emulsions, water intake, and economic impact.
For instance, a very important step in a membrane treatment plant in the United States is the pretreatment of fluid to remove large particulate and biologicals.
Poor prefiltration can result in increased maintenance costs, increased energy consumption, damaged components (like a pump or heat exchanger), and reduced service times.
But why Schroeder?
At Schroeder Industries, of 75 years of expertise have lead us to just three (3) common design-types of process filters:
- Backflush Filters (automatic and manual) covering a wide range of flow and filtration ratings. The elements in all backflush filters are reusable and economically sound. Backflush filters offer low maintenance requirement and low operating costs.
- Bag Filter Systems, also known as “our” hydraulic filter housing, come in multiple standard sizes of 1, 2, 3, and 4. These are most suitable for coarse and fine filtration.
- Cartridge Filter Systems are elements that apply depth filtration. Depth filtration increases dirt holding capacity while offering efficient filtration. These are also suitable for fine filtration.
It is our experience that your project will suffice with any one of the three options listed above. The option always lives to choose one, proceed, and move forward on the project at hand.
If we later determine that one of the aforementioned options does not quite meet the goals you have set in place, we also specialize as an engineering firm.
Our in-house team has the ability to look at your operational design and personalize a process filtration solution fit for your individual needs. This may even include taking one of our existing solutions and retrofitting it to your specific needs.
The Schroeder Guarantee
Schroeder insures protection of product and equipment, no matter what the project.
To do this, it is important to perform selective filtering of solids from gas and liquid process streams.
Poor filtering can cause a degradation of your final product or failure of equipment.
This can cause hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars in downtime or wasted product.
An infinite amount of applications and gases/liquids exist and Schroeder has the expertise to determine your optimal filtration needs. Schroeder has the optimized filtration solution based on your media, economics, permits, filtration goals, etc. This can include industrial processes, mining food and beverage, drinking water and wastewater.
