Getting the right filter nozzles can be challenging
For maintenance engineers keeping water filtration systems in good working order can be difficult, particularly in the case of older systems. Not only is there a wide diversity of filtration systems in use, there is also substantial variations in the types of filter nozzles used.
“In our work we come across massive differences in the types of filter nozzles in use,” said Graeme Cooper, Managing Director of Tecpro Australia. “There are many variations in slot widths, thread and stem sizes as well as the material the nozzles are made from. When you’re replacing them, it’s vital to have a close match for their dimensions and also to ensure the fabrication is suitable for local conditions.”
Cooper said the materials used in the construction of filter nozzles affect how well they perform in different operating temperatures, and how well they withstand chemicals and general wear and tear.
“Our range includes filter nozzles constructed from stainless steel and standard polypropylene, as well as different specialised formulations to offer increased strength, durability and chemical resistance. These include glass-filled polypropylene, mineral-filled polypropylene and polyvinylideneflouride, or PVDF as it’s known,” said Cooper.
“The ILMAP filter nozzles are precisionmade and are highly regarded for the reliable dimensional accuracy of their slot sizes, which prevents the passage of particles,” said Cooper. “Of course getting the best outcome starts with having expert advice to help you choose the model that will capably deal with the demands placed on your system.” www.demm.co.nz/reader enquiry #150530a.
