Eaton Filtration Warranty
Filtration products manufactured by Eaton are warranted against defects for 18 months after shipment or 12 months after startup. This limited warranty demonstrates the company’s confidence in the high quality of their filtration products.
How Do Process Filtration Systems Work?
Process filtration systems are designed to clean and treat substances like water, chemicals, and gases. These filtration systems form an important part of most industrial processes, in applications like pharmaceutical, chemicals and coatings, food and beverage, water treatment, oil and gas, and more. A well designed and maintained filtration system reduces maintenance costs and improves process efficiency.
Each industrial filtration system is designed according to the properties of the material and the contaminants (or by products) that are being removed, as well as the process needs. Filtration solutions may range from a basket strainer that can remove products as small as 40 µm (microns) or depth filters that can filter down to .1 µm. The ideal filtration solution also depends on whether the process can be interrupted to change or clean filters, and whether automatic cleaning is necessary. The design and quality of the filtration system is essential to protect downstream equipment such as meters, pumps, compressors, traps, valves and filters from damage due to contamination.
Automatic Self Cleaning Strainers & Filters
Automatic self-cleaning pipeline strainers and filters protect valuable equipment from debris, with the added benefits of continuous flow and streamlined maintenance. Automatic self-cleaning filters from Eaton include mechanically cleaned filters, high flow mechanically cleaned strainers, tubular backwashing filters, and automated custom cast and fabricated pipeline strainers.
Mechanically cleaned filters from Eaton (formerly Ronningen-Petter) are the finest automatic self-cleaning filters available, featuring improved flow, minimal loss of product, and reduced operator intervention. For low product loss and few wear parts, look to the MCF & MCS magnetically coupled series. For reliable and economical operation with higher viscosity liquids, look to the DCF series. Eaton also has incorporated the Zurn line of automatic strainers.
Beverage Treatment Filter Products
Eaton filtration products for beverage treatment are used in many stages of beverage production, such as juice/mash extraction, clarification, fermentation, fining, deacidification, and stabilization. Filtration systems help increase beverage shelf life and stability.
Eaton develops top-quality depth filter media for a wide range of applications, including depth filter sheets, depth filter capsules, stacked disc cartridges, and filtration systems.
BECO depth filter sheets are suited for various specialized applications including liquid filtration, pharmaceutical manufacturing, clarifying filtration, high quality spirit filtration, and highly viscous liquid filtration.
Eaton’s Begerow product line includes advanced filtration technologies like:
- Stacked disc cartridges made from BECO depth filter sheets to form individual cartridge cells
- Automated StepFlow and manually operated filtration systems
- Depth filter cartridges made from high quality, wrapped or pleated material layers and membrane filter cartridges designed for food and beverage, pharmaceutical and other high purity applications
- Cartridge housings for the sanitary and high purity industries made from stainless steel and mechanically or electrolytically polished
Gas Liquid Separators
A gas liquid separator removes more than 99% of all damaging moisture, as well as particles of solids that are larger than 10 microns. Carotek offers Eaton gas/liquid separation products including in-line separators, two-stage separators, separator exhaust heads, separator drain traps, coalesce separators, dry type separators, and internal separators.
Eaton’s Wright-Austin air/liquid separators created the industry standard for steam, air, and gas applications. Made from materials ranging from cast iron and cast steel to fabricated carbon steel, gas/liquid separators remove entrained droplets and particles from process gas. Exhaust heads are designed for use at the end of a vent, to reduce droplets and particles in exhaust.
Pipeline Basket Strainers
Pipeline strainers protect components of the process system from damage due to pipeline debris. These strainers include simplex and duplex industrial basket strainers, Y-strainers (Wye strainers), and fabricated strainers.
Eaton (formerly Hayward) Basket and Y-Strainers led the industry with their innovative design, protecting pipeline system components from dirt and debris, and at the same time allowing process media to flow freely. These simplex and duplex basket strainers are available with baskets made from materials from stainless steel or specialty alloys. Hayward basket strainers come in carbon steel, stainless steel and specialty alloys. Options include steam jacketing, Tefzel lining, as well as a variety of perforated thermoplastic or metal screens.
Portable filtration allows flexibility to move the self-contained filtration system wherever it is needed. Eaton's Flowash™ portable filter line is compact, self-contained, easy to operate, and available in two sizes: industrial filter cart and basic filter cart.
Bag Filters & Housings
Bag filters and housings provide low cost, versatile liquid bag filtration solutions for a range of applications. Bag filter options range from sewn filter bags to welded, multi-layer bags. Single and multibag filter housings offer high performance design, and heavy duty investment-cast components. Side inlet configurations, designed to flow through the top to minimize headroom of unfiltered liquid, provide optimum sealing and easy bag change-out. With legacy products from GAF and Loeffler, Eaton has the most diverse bag filtration offering on the market.
