Repeat order for filtration system

16 January 2019

Amazon Filters has received a further order from a car manufacturer to deliver an optimised filtration system to ensure the quality of the electrophoretic paint stages on its paint line.

The car manufacturer wanted to use the same combination of Amazon Filters 63 Series industrial inclined filter housing fitted with Contour large diameter melt-blown cartridge filters to protect its paint baths.

David Keay, export sales manager for Amazon Filters, comments: "They opted for our Contour filters over alternative bag filters and standard cartridges, due to their ease of use and the high flow capacity. Whilst Contour is a coreless filter, for this application it was supplied and fitted with a core. The rationale behind this was to reduce downtime during filter change out and, assist operators with removal of the filter cartridge after use. The Contour filter can then be removed much more easily as the unique inserted core prevents the media from sticking to the permanent support tube inside the housing, typically caused by paint agglomeration."

Contour cartridges are produced using a special manufacturing process resulting in high efficiency filtration and consistent performance. Engineered to operate in high flow applications, the high capacity, low pressure loss media used in Contour filters is suitable for a wide range of automotive manufacturing processes.

No resins, binders or other materials are used in the manufacturing process; this results in a fibre free, un-contaminated process fluid. Amazon Filters says that, as a result, Contour cartridge filters are able to deliver excellent performance in terms of life, disposal costs and overall cost effectiveness when compared to conventional cartridges.
