Vel-Max® Filter Vessel Configurations/Applications

 

 

Filter/Separator ConfigurationVelcon Vel-Max Filter Vessel Vel-Max Series for liquid/liquid separation uses a 2-stage coalescer separator cartridge combination to remove free and emulsified water from a liquid product stream. The first stage coalescing cartridge provides filtration as well as coalescing of free and emulsified water. The second stage separator is a hydrophobic barrier designed to repel the coalesced water droplets. The water droplets will fall and collect in the sump for removal through the manual drain. 6” or 6.25” OD x 2.625” ID ConfigurationVelcon Vel-Max Filter Vessel Vel-Max Series for 6” or 6.25” OD x 2.625” ID cartridges can be used in several ways. To remove solid contaminants from a flow stream, use the vessel with a pleated media filter. When used with Aquacon® cartridges the Vel-Max will remove solids and free water by absorption from a fuel or industrial oil flow stream. Using Vel-Max with clay cartridges will remove surfactants, color and other impurities by adsorption from a fuel or industrial oil system.

 

 

 

 

 

6” OD x 3.5” ID ConfigurationVelcon Vel-Max Filter Vessel Vel-Max Series with 6” OD x 3.5” ID cartridges can be used in two ways. To remove solid contaminants from a flow stream, use the vessel with a pleated media filter. When used with Aquacon® cartridges* the Vel-Max will remove solid contaminants and free water by absorption from a jet fuel or aviation gasoline flow stream. CDF® Monitor ConfigurationVelcon Vel-Max Filter Vessel Vel-Max Series can be adapted to use 2” diameter CDF® type monitor cartridges* for removing solid contaminants and free water by absorption from jet fuel or aviation gasoline flow streams.

 

*CAUTION: Do not use Aquacon® or CDF® water absorbing monitor cartridges in pre-mixed jet fuel containing anti-icing additives (DiEGME, FIZZY®, Prist®, FSII)
