Poret® is specifically designed for efficient removal of coarse particulates and suspended droplets. When used to replace other media, it does not require substantial changes to existing frames or housings.
Poret® coalescer media provide big savings by their ease of washing and suitability for reuse. Even when washed again and again, their original media structure remains unaffected.
Poret® protects downstream filter stages by highly efficient removal of coarse matter and water droplets from inlet air. The physical mechanisms involved can be illustrated using the simple example of fog in ambient air. Fog is made up of tiny water droplets approximately 10 to 40 micrometers in diameter. As these droplets pass through the pore structure of Poret®, they agglomerate and their average size and weight increase. Too heavy to float in air, these larger droplets separate off downwards.
As can be seen in the graph at right, Poret® achieves a separation efficiency approaching 100% over the size range considered. Poret® offers other benefits as well. It has low initial pressure drop which remains virtually constant during subsequent operation. Its highly stable pore structure, low build-up of pressure drop over time and high efficiency in removal of coarse particles ensure longer service life in field use. It avoids the need for frequent media replacement and costly resultant downtime. And, by reliably removing coarse droplets and particulates, Poret® permits the downstream filter stages to go about their job smoothly and efficiently.
Available in a wide range of standard and custom-cut sizes, Poret® can be easily integrated in existing frames and assemblies. Along with flat versions, Poret® is also offered in pleated versions providing increased surface area and decreased pressure drop.Poret® is available as well as roll-form material or in reusable frame systems.
