AE PERFORMANCE

The AE series "oil mist and smoke eliminators" feature a highly efficient coalescing design element. The element uses a graded porosity medium to effectively remove the heavy concentrations of smoke from the exhaust stream of oil-sealed, oil lubricated, mechanical vacuum pumps. The filter can also be used in special applications as a mist eliminator when it is installed on the vent connection of compressor oil sumps, or liquid tank reservoirs. Coalescing is a "gathering" of minute liquid droplets to form larger droplets. The small droplets that enter the inside of the element are intercepted by the filter medium and extracted from the gas stream. The larger droplets drain off the outside of the element and fall by gravity to the bottom of the filter housing where a drain connection is provided for removing the coalesced oil. The element actually becomes more efficient as it is saturated with liquid, and will provide a long service life. At rated flow, the initial pressure loss is approximately 2.5 PSI. Filter oversizing or the use of special element materials is recommended for applications where lower differential pressure is required.

ELEMENT DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

The element is constructed with various high efficiency inner layers to coalesce the fine droplets, and coarser outer layers to promote drainage and prevent reentrainment. The element seals are composed of a molded, flexible, oil-resistant plastisol material which provides for a positive leak-tight seal. Standard elements are designed for flow rates up to 1500 SCFM and provide 0.3 micron retention at 99.97% efficiency. The elements may be modified to satisfy each original equipment manufacturer's requirements for specific chemical resistance, separation efficiencies, flow rates, and differential pressure levels.

HOUSING DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION

The AE series offers durable, heavy-gauge filter housings which may be mounted directly to the exhaust port of a vacuum pump or remotely (indoors or outdoors). All units easily disassemble when servicing. Standard models may be used in applications with inlet pressures up to 15 PSI and temperatures up to 300 degrees Farenheit. IFM filter housings are fabricated from a mild carbon steel and are primed and painted for outdoor applications. Other materials, including stainless steel, are also available. Housings may also be modified to meet application needs. Typical design modifications include special end connection types and sizes, and special controls and accessories.
