Coalescing cartridges | Removing dust and condensate
During transport and with each processing step, gas is contaminated with solids and/or liquids. To prevent damage to downstream equipment, VoTech offers cartridges and complete separation solutions for solids removal – for downstream, midstream and upstream applications, designed and configured to clients’ standards or to typical country and/or company standards worldwide.
Cartridges for the removal of solids and liquids from wet natural gas and other wet gaseous media
VoTech cartridges are designed for the efficient removal of typical contaminants in equipment from production, gas pipelines up to the end user. As OEM for many renowed vessel builders and engineering companies we manufacture a large variety of cartridge dimensions and media. We defy innovations or assist in standardising existing filtration solutions; we support our clients with design issues to guarantee maximum filtration efficiency, compact assembly, highest possible dirt holding capacity, low pressure drop and optimum lifetime.
Our innovative R&D test facility enables us to perform fundamental research, quality control and continuity checks. When developing new or improving existing products, environmental solutions are preferred to support current visions regarding increase of waste disposal.
DuoToV® coalescing filtercartridges are excellent for cases where both condensate and particle separation from moist gases are required. An integrated pre-filter effectively separates solid particles, thus considerably increasing the cartridge lifetime.
In order to achieve a dual function with one element, it is constructed of a combination of cellulose and multiple layers of borosilicate glass fibers around a stable core. The media is pleated in order to achieve high filtration efficiency at a reduced ?P. A second core, constructed in expanded carbon steel, surrounds the pleated element. Fibreglass in varying density is wrapped around this core; it is this glass fiber, that acts as the coalescing section of the filter. A cotton sock outside is provided as standard, this outer layer drains the coalesced liquid.
MicroToV® third generation coalescing filtercartridges to remove (ultra) fine oil mist, condensate and solids from moist gases. A special micro layer for conditioning oil mist in the gas stream is integrated in this cartridge. Like the DuoToV®, an integrated pre-filter effectively separates solid particles.
Depending upon the particular application, flowrates per cartridge will vary widely. All cartridges may be operated either horizontally and vertically. These cartridges can be used in all sectors of industry where high efficient separation of liquids and solids from gases is of crucial importance.
Cores and media are sealed to metal end caps by means of a natural gas resistant bonding compound. All cartridges are completed with gaskets. Options: one end mounted on to a resin threaded end cap for use with an aluminum adapter, the other end having a resin cap with a ½” UNC bolt. Standard metal parts are electrogalvanized or carbon steel, other materials on request.
Standard flow direction is inside to outside, alternatives on request. The DuoToV® and SoloToV® series coalescing cartridges present an ideal alternative for cartridges applied in filter/separators from various manufacturers like Broom, Keen, Facet, Faudi, Filtan, Peco, Peerless, Velcon, etc. Our cartridges are applied by many high end manufacturers of filter installations internationally.
Inline separation system for the removal of solid & liquid contaminants from dry or wet natural gas and other gaseous media
Our patented inline separator, the Side-Stream-Separator type LCK®, a development that is based on thorough theoretical knowledge and fundamental research (1996 – to date), enjoys wide spread application in different applications featuring high efficiency, limited pressure differential and purifies gas to an extent equal to gas cleaned by quality filter cartridges without the disadvantage of such cartridges. The equipment utilising only the energy from the incoming process stream has no moving parts, is low in maintenance and simple to operate with considerably less waste. Therefore spare parts are reduced to a minimum. The total cost of ownership and Footprint are considerably less compared with conventional systems. As there is no need to change cartridges and when automatic draining is planned, redundancy almost is intrinsically embedded within the equipment.
