Paper Published at 7th International Conference on BWM

We have published a paper at the above event in collaboration with Mentum AS illustrating the highly configurable design of our filter test unit and its ability to evaluate advanced filter screen characteristics. The data obtained provides through flow, side (leakage) flow and total flow and highlights the significant differences in filter screen design.

Generally, only ‘challenge testing’ and pressure drop analysis with air is carried out, this provides only limited comparison data. In addition to the experimental work, we also present an advanced CFD study of the cleaning nozzle characteristics which provide data such as nozzle forces. This is an area we continue to investigate.
