Filtration Solutions for the Chemical Industry
In the chemical industry, it is critical to filter process components to prevent particulate and microbial contamination, helping ensure product sterility and quality. Global Filter’s product solutions help protect the process from contaminants while extending service life and reducing operations costs. Global Filter designs and manufactures filter elements and vessels that are widely used in the chemical industry and our years of industry expertise will help to optimize your manufacturing process.
Typical Chemical Process
Many of the finished goods in the chemical industry are made using the same process equipment. As a result impurities from one process stream could negatively impact neighboring systems which can lead to unwanted contamination, additional clean in place measures, product loss, and decreased revenue. Efficient filtration systems positioned in critical chemical process locations can help mitigate risk by increasing particulate removal efficiency while improving effluent quality and reducing necessary maintenance.
Filtration of Chemical Process Ingredients
The first step in the chemical production process is filtering the process ingredients to purify solvents and remove unwanted particulate or pollutants from organic and inorganic products which could reduce the efficiency of the chemical reaction. This step will also reduce the production of sub-products. When filtering organic and inorganic process ingredients, we recommend using our pleated depth cartridge (PP-Series) with a 0.2-micron rating and a PES membrane cartridge for microbial retention. In case of high solid loading, Global Filter recommends a pre-filtration step to prevent the pleated membrane cartridges from clogging too quickly. For solvent filtration, we recommend using our PTFE or Nylon 6,6 cartridges depending on the aggressiveness of the solvent and chemical compatibility with the materials of construction.
Filtration After Chemical Reaction
During the chemical reaction, sub-products are often generated and need to be retained. Retention of these sub-products will help improve the purity of the final product. For this step, we recommend using Global Filter’s pleated depth cartridge (GHLS-Series) to remove what are often deformable particles. Also, the microglass pleated cartridge (FG-Series) is an ideal solution for removing colloids due to an inherent positive charge within the filter media.
Final Chemical Filtration
Before conditioning and preparing for packaging, a final filtration step is recommended to ensure product purity and quality. For this stage, we recommend using our high flow pleated cartridge (HFB-Series). Due to the inside-to-outside flow design, all contaminants are captured on the inside of the element, avoiding potential contamination of the filtered products during change-out. With up to 48.5 square feet of media, the HFB-Series reduces change-out frequency and employee exposure to chemicals.
