Fouling of pipes and heat exchanging surfaces lowers the thermal efficiency of the system which increases the friction losses, induces erosion, corrosion, and energy waste while increasing the demand for a higher flow rate.

  • Problems include; plugging of spray nozzles, blinding of sensors, analyzers, wearing down of pump gland seals, scrubbers, misters, membranes, and ion exchanger columns.
  • Causes unscheduled shutdowns for maintenance and cleaning and the loss of operating efficiency.

Rain Bird self-cleaning water filters provide the ultimate solution where Petro-Chem water is a problem:

  • The filters operate on line pressure alone.
  • The self-cleaning process is triggered by a pressure differential and is accomplished in seconds without interrupting the main flow.
  • The filters are compact in size.
  • ASME code stamp vessels are also available as an option.
