From the food we eat to the water we drink to the oil that powers our cars, most substances we use require some form of filtration. As raw materials are converted to usable goods, solids must be separated from liquids; wastes set aside, and reusable materials recycled.
As economies grow and populations expand, a few industries are fueling the industrial filtration market. Given growing demands, these industries must adapt with increasingly efficient tools—filters.
Here are a few industries' processes that most need filtration technology:
Because so many industries rely on water and must comply with water quality standards, water treatment is one of the most prominent filtration applications.
The clear water must pass through a filtration process, which may include various wedge wire screens and centrifuges that remove sand, dust, bacteria and viruses.
From disinfectants to fertilizers, nearly every modern chemical requires some type of filtration during its production. The specific process varies by chemical type and manufacturer, but in most cases, particle filtration is a key step. And final products also are filtered—often with a centrifuging process—to comply with regulations and prevent contamination.
Common over-the-counter drugs and life-saving medications alike must pass rigorous quality control tests. These tests detect bacteria, viruses, dust, and a host of other particulates that must be removed using a collection of filtration techniques.
Biological processes are harnessed to sustainably produce a wide range of goods, including food, medicine, and fuels. In each of these applications, desired products must be filtered before use.
The food and beverage industry leverages some of the most widely recognized filtration processes. These processes include the separation of milkfat from dairy products; centrifuging crystallized sugar; washing, separating, and dewatering grains in breweries and distilleries, etc.
So why is filtration important for industrial applications?
1. Protecting Equipment from Ingesting Harmful Contaminants
2. Removing Contaminants to Purify air and gas streams
3. Protecting Personnel and the Work Environment
4. Separating and Isolating Desirable Product from the Air Stream
