Particulate Traps

Product Announcement from Nor-Cal Products, Inc.

Particulate Traps-Image

These traps remove particles that might enter the mechanical pump and contaminate the oil. A polyester felt filter traps particles over 10 microns in size at 98% efficiency. Filters can be cleaned with a vacuum cleaner. Suitable for process temperatures from ambient to 149ºC.

Woven 10 micron fiberglass filters are available as an option. These filters provide a much longer service life than the polyester. This filter is required for temperatures greater than 149ºC. Maximum fiberglass filter temperature is 370ºC. Filters with other micron ratings are available upon request.

The high capacity fiberglass filter option, shown in the diagram to right, provides a reservoir for applications with heavy particle loads that might block the inlet. The high capacity filter option is not available for 8" bodies.

The two-piece trap body and 304 stainless steel construction allow these traps to be easily cleaned. For proper sealing, apply a light coating of Krytox lube when cleaning or replacing the O-ring. Standard finish is beadblast. Electropolish finish, larger body sizes and custom flange configurations available.

Options available for this product:

  • ISO Body Flanges
  • Woven Fiberglass Filter
