Everything You Should Know About Portable Filter Carts

Filter carts are used to purify the lubricants offline. Portable filter carts are attached as an extra filtration system with the machine. The lubricant is added to the filter cart when the system is not working and after filtration, it is added back to the machine. Portable filter carts are used for hydraulic filtration when a new filter is filled in the machine.

Portable filter carts are also used for the kidney loop filtration of lube oil. They are capable of removing water molecules. Portable filtration carts can be used for diesel and fuel filtration. These filter carts are used at the time of oil filling, so the oil is filtered first and then added to the machine.

Purification Of Industrial Oil

The oil used in the industrial machines are filtered in a portable filtration cart. These carts are connected with the machines where filtration is required. The machines are stopped and oil is added to the filter carts cylinders. The cylinder can be attached to any machine, as it is a portable filtration system. Portable filters are used to eliminate acids, water molecules, large particles of different materials, varnish, paint particles, and colour present in the oil of industrial machines.

Portable filtration is an extra filtration method for deep purification. It ensures the removal of materials that filters installed in the system are unable to remove.

Portable Filter Cart Structure

Filter carts have a very simple structure. It contains cylinders, pumps, and motors. These three components are attached to each other. They are placed on a cart with wheels to move it easily.

The pump helps in shifting the lubricant from the machine’s engine to the filter cylinder, and the motor is involved in the carrying filtration process. The filter is added back into the engine with the help of a motor and pump.

Advantages A Of Portable Filtration Cart

  • It can move easily with wheels, and the connectivity and operation are also easy.
  • High power and better efficiency of filtration.
  • Able to filter the lubricants with high power, due to efficient motor and pump.
  • Filters the large particles from lubricants which are not removed with an ordinary machine filter.
  • Large filter cylinders can purify more lubricant at one time.
  • It can remove water molecules mixed with the lubricant.
  • The efficient filtration increases the life of engine and machine parts.
  • Filtration is done when the machine is in an idle state. This ensures that the lubricant is filtered completely as there is no oil present in the machine during filtration.
  • Removes solid particles such as paint particles and other materials mixed in the oil.
  • Portable filter carts purify the lubricants efficiently due to which the lubricant changes and the service time is increased.
  • These filter carts can connect with machines and filter the different types of materials.

Important Factors For Selecting Portable Filter Carts

Your filter cart should be selected according to the density and temperature of the lubricant which is to be filtered. The properties of filter carts are different according to these two factors. For low-temperature lubricants, the filter requires a low-pressure pump. As low-temperature lubricants are entered slowly into the filter in order to do slow filtration. The reason for slow filtration is that the low-temperature lubricants often have high density due to which they take more time to purify.

The lubricants with high temperatures are entered with a good pressure pump, they get filtered in less time than the low-temperature lubricants. A normal pressure pump is required for normal temperature lubricants.

The type of filters also affect the filtration cost so, selecting the right filter is important. The selection of filters will also depend on the materials which have to be filtered from the lubricant. The filtration capacity of every filter is different therefore, the filtration of hard materials requires more power.

By selecting the right filter you will get the best filtration results. Money, time and power will be wasted if the filter type is not suitable for the lubricant.
