Filters for Vacuum Pumps
At the heart of the Headline Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filter is the completely disposable
CS-type coalescing element. Made entirely from borosilicate glass microfibre and silica binder, it is compatible with all compressor lubricants and will operate at temperatures
up to 200oC. The CS-type element has a two-layer structure, an inner particle capture-layer and an outer drainage-layer. Oil droplets remain mobile once captured and travel through the fine-pored capture-layer, along the intersecting microfibres, growing in size as they progress. These ccoalesced droplets are transferred to the large-pored drainage-layer, from where they drain by gravity into the filter bowl. Oil collected in the filter bowl can then be drained and reused. Headline CS-type Coalescing Filters are
completely self-supporting and are sealed into the filter housing simply by tightening a retaining nut. No end caps, gasketing materials or support cores are required. At element change only the filtering material itself is discarded, and this complete disposability keeps replacement element costs down. Headline Coalescing Filters have an efficiency
rating of 99.9% at 0.1 micron and are designed to have an initial dry pressure drop of less than 0.1 bar. Thereafter the pressure drop will increase only very slowly as solid particles are captured and retained in the capture-layer of the element. Headline recommends changing filter elements when the pressure drop reaches 0.3 bar or the pump manufacturer’s quoted maximum back pressure, whichever is lower.
