Compact Horizontal Filter/Separator Vessels for Fixed Installations Offers Significant Operating Advantages Over Vertical Designs
EASIER CARTRIDGE CHANGE
The horizontal filter/separator design provides more convenient access to the cartridges than the vertical design.
A horizontal filter/separator must be drained to change the elements. This prevents the possibility of getting dirt in the effluent that can occur if the operator does not
fully drain a vertical vessel when changing elements. The separator mounting holes on a horizontal vessel are in a vertical plane at the top of the vessel so it is nearly
impossible to get dirt in the effluent when cartridges are being changed.
A horizontal filter/separator will often cost less than a vertical filter/separator of the same rated flow, for the same specifications.
Velcon HV Series Horizontal Filter/Separators are fully qualified to API Publication 1581, Third Edition, Group II, Class B (fixed installations). These units incorporate
one piece threaded base coalescer elements for easy, reliable installation and reusable one piece Teflon® coated screen separators.
