Proper filtration has always been a critical component of operating an efficient power plant. Surprisingly, however, staying up to date on filtration maintenance is all too often ignored in today’s typical plant. Additionally, the modern plant continues to evolve. Read Valin's white paper to learn more about filtration in peaker plants and why ensuring proper ammonia filtration means more now than it ever has before.

Over 90% of manufacturing facilities world-wide use compressed air as part of their manufacturing process. However, this powerful utility is not without its problems, in the form of compressed air contamination. It is therefore common practice to install compressed air filters as part of a “purification system” to ensure contaminants are reduced and the system operates in a safe, efficient and cost effective manner.

Selecting the correct filter for the application should be approached from a methodical, questioning angle. If filters are application specific, meeting filtration specifications, physical and chemical conditions of the process must be considered before selecting the filter for the application.

This white paper explains the differences between oil lubricated and oil-free compressor technologies, the contamination risks associated with each, and how to mitigate those risks by installing the correct purification equipment required to deliver clean, dry, “Technically Oil-free Compressed Air”.

Within any of the semiconductor manufacturing processes that utilize gases, filtration is one of the most critical elements. Whether discussing inert or specialty gases, this holds true from the bulk source all the way through to the final point of use. In this white paper you will learn about recent improvements in filter performance that have come to the forefront in just the last couple years.

In recent years, portable filtration units, often referred to as filter carts, have become a common tool in the lubrication professional’s arsenal. Increasing demand for these systems has led to the development of a wide range of new products and driven down prices, which is a good thing. When filter carts first came onto the scene they were primarily used by service providers for decontaminating large systems. These early models were typically designed for low viscosity oils in large volume systems and were on the expensive side, making them unsuitable or impractical for many applications.

The purpose of a filter is to remove contaminants from a fluid stream either completely, or at least down to a given rating or specification. Filters are used to help control contaminants and are rated according to their ability to remove these contaminants from a liquid, gas or air stream. There are different methods in which the performance of filters are specified.
