Water/Particle Contamination


In the pulp and paper industry high levels of dirt, heat and moisture are present in the manufacturing process. Particle contamination can occur during a lubricated machine’s operation. With the new faster paper machines there’s a high demand on lubrication equipment. A downtime due to lubrication failure can cost a lot. So lubricants must be clean and free of water to prevent the costly downtime. To prevent damage on lubrication equipment due to particle contamination, filtration of particle contaminants is necessary.

Another problem is moisture, a small amount of moisture can lead to equipment failure. Water can infiltrate in lubricant machine through condensation, ambient conditions, seal leaks or from cleaning chemicals and water during cleaning of the equipment. All water contamination must be removed for optimum performance of the equipment.

Benefits for filtration of water and particle contaminants:
Keeps your turbine equipment on line longer.
Protects expensive and difficult-to-replace bearings and gears from premature failure.
Makes your downtime schedule more predictable.
Holds the line on maintenance and replacement parts costs.
Extends the lifespan of increasingly expensive lubricants.

Twin Filter provides Automatic self cleaning filter units (TwinOmatic), the self cleaning process is automatically triggered by a signal of the pressure differential switch or a timer. The design of the TwinOmatic guarantees a continuous flow rate even during cleaning. Cartidges and bag filter units are also available.
