Filters for Compressors.

The Filter Guys

The range of compressors working in industry in the UK is vast and they all require engine and hydraulic filter elements. Our range of aftermarket filters covers a huge range of these applications including filters for: Atlas Copco, Becker, Compare, Demag, Gardner Denver, Holman, Hydrovane, Ingersoll Rand, Kaeser, Mattei, Sullair and many more.

Regular, scheduled maintenance of your engine and compressor oil and separator filters can avoid breakdowns and lengthy downtime of your machine. Holding a set of filters in stock can also reduce the amount of time that your machine is down when the lead time for replacement filters is more than a few days.

At Sterling Filtration we endeavour to hold as much stock for as many machines as possible. If you have an urgent filter requirement, a breakdown to repair or are just looking for competitively priced filters for stock please give us a call today.

How Filter Media Functions In a Filtration System

The Filter Guys

How Filter Media Functions. The job of the media is to capture particles and allow the fluid to flow through. For fluid to pass through, the media must have holes or channels to direct the fluid flow and allow it to pass. That’s why filter media is a porous mat of fibers that alters the fluid flow stream by causing fluid to twist, turn and accelerate during passage.

The fluid changes direction as it comes into contact with the media fibers, as illustrated above. As the fluid flows through the media, it changes direction continuously as it works its way through the maze of media fibers. As it works its way through the depths of the layers of fibers, the fluid becomes cleaner and cleaner. Generally, the thicker the media, the greater the dirt-holding capacity it has.

Looking at a cross-section view of the fibers:

we can see how the flow stream is accelerated as it flows into the spaces between the fibers.

This is applies to all liquid filters, be they oil, fuel, water of water glycol. For more information on filtration products and replacement elements please contact us for a chat. We’re here to help.

How Filter Media Collects Particles

The Filter Guys

How Filter Media Collects Particles. There are four basic ways media captures particles.

The first, called inertia, works on large, heavy particles suspended in the flow stream. These particles are heavier than the fluid surrounding them. As the fluid changes direction to enter the fiber space, the particle continues in a straight line and collides with the media fibers where it is trapped and held.

The second way media can capture particles is by diffusion. Diffusion works on the smallest particles. Small particles are not held in place by the viscous fluid and diffuse within the flow stream. As the particles traverse the flow stream, they collide with the fiber and are collected.

The third method of particle entrapment is call interception. Direct interception works on particles in the mid-range size that are not quite large enough to have inertia and not small enough to diffuse within the flow stream. These mid-sized particles follow the flow stream as it bends through the fiber spaces. Particles are intercepted or captured when they touch a fiber.

The fourth method of capture is called sieving and is the most common mechanism in hydraulic filtration. As shown at right, this is when the particle is too large to fit between the fiber spaces.

Why should you filter your oil?

The Filter Guys

Why should you filter your oil? Often it is easy for engineers or fitters to overlook the importance of filtering the lube oil that is running through their engines or hydraulic systems. Ignoring this simple but critical issue can lead to expensive breakdowns and can even right off engines or rams. Effective application of filter elements is not only sensible but it can save you thousands of pounds over the life time of a machine or engine. Oils have to be maintained at the necessary level of cleanliness to prevent wear and tear and to return harmful particulates to the sump removing them from harms way within the engine. Regular maintenance of your oil filters provides continuous purification of your oil as well as removing the trapped particles from the system completely (upon removal of a clogged filter element).

Strainers in tanks or on scavenge hoses help avoid large debris and sediment being removed from standing tanks of oil and are easily fitted. Systems are easily modified to take advantage of the benefits a simple strainer can offer at the beginning of your lube/hydraulic oil circuit. Filter housings with take apart elements or spin on canisters can also be put into suction (between the tank and the pump) to protect the pump and can also be put into the pressure line (to help protect the engine, if lubricating oil, or protect a hydraulic ram) and are also often used in the return line (to collect any debris that may have collected from the operation of the engine or ram).

Clean oil protects your lubricating and hydraulic system from wear and breakdowns and your oil is only maintained by proper servicing and monitoring of your filtration systems. It is good practise to have a detailed maintenance schedule for all of your engines and machines.
