The Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, a leader in motion and control technologies, has announced a patented connector to be used with pleated filter elements. The connector allows two, two-metre pleated filters to be joined together without the use of any tools.
The patented connector allows customers to replace their 8, 9, and 10-metre bags with pleated filters, offering many performance benefits.
This product development provides customers with more options to better manage their baghouse filtration systems. Today the media width constrains the length of a filter; the longest pleated filter will be about two metres. Now, using this connector, Parker can convert a customer using 8, 9, and 10-metre-long bags and cages to a pleated filter. Pleated filters offer benefits such as:
- Reduced air-to-cloth ratios.
- Lower operating differential pressure.
- Energy savings.
- Higher production output.
- Easy installation and removal of filters.
“Providing our customers with products that improve their baghouse maintenance and performance is rewarding,” said Jeff Canfield, Senior Product Engineer, Industrial Gas Filtration and Generation Division. “We worked with one of our power generation customers on this project and they were delighted with the energy savings and longer filter life using pleated products and the filter connector.”
The patented connector was developed in Parker’s Industrial Filter Test Lab and Customer Experience Centre that opened in 2018 in Slater, MO.
