Protecting filter elements against direct flow impact

Protecting filter elements against direct flow impact

(Werdohl, October 2011)

Plastic sheath prevents damage

The sensitive filter bellows on filter elements are frequently prone to damage during transportation, storage and filter replacement work. In addition, large particles in the flow of fluid may harm the filter material. At the Agritechnica trade fair, Stauff will be presenting their solution: SE series filter elements with protective sheath. This is a thin, perforated plastic sheet that completely encases the pleats of the filter from the outside as well as making the element more stable. A further positive effect is that the volume flow is distributed more evenly by the protective sheath, thus ensuring an efficient flow rate. In its standard version, the foil is printed with the Stauff logo, eliminating any mix-up with other brands. Larger quantities can also be produced with a customised imprint on the sheath.Find out further details at the Agritechnica taking place in Hanover from 13 - 19 November 2011. The STAUFF booth is in Hall 25, stand No. M27.
