The Filtration Division of energy management company Eaton recently launched an optimised version of its IFPM 33 mobile, off-line fluid purifier system, which removes water, gases and particulate contaminants from oils.

The fully automated, PLC-controlled purifiers effectively remove free, emulsified and dissolved water, free and dissolved gases, and particulate contamination down to 3 µm from light transformer oils to heavy lubricating oils at a flow rate of 8 gpm (30 l/min). Typical high-moisture applications include hydroelectric power, pulp and paper, offshore and marine.

The purifier contains a filter element of the NR630 series according to DIN 24550-4 and guarantees fluid filtration in addition to dewatering. The fineness of the filter element can be selected according to market standards, for example 10VG element with ß200 = 10 µm(c).

The VG media are multi-layer, pleated constructions made of glass fibre fleece with a high retention rate of fine dirt particles at constant performance over the element lifetime as well as high dirt-holding capacity. Equipped with Viton seals, the filter elements are designed to support dewatering.
