|Flex-Tube™ Filter Element Data|
element is the porous support structure for the diatomite filter aid used
in Filtrex Regenerative Filters. A number of Flex-Tubes are
vertically deployed within the filter to form the tube nest assembly.
The outer wall of the Flex-Tube is made of braided groups of filaments arranged at a specific angle. Thus, external pressure causes a diminishing of the tube diameter and pore size. Each Flex-Tube has an internal stainless steel spring to limit the diameter diminution. Filament material varies with the application.
During filtration, the Flex-Tube is retentive. Conversely, when bumped for regeneration or cleaning, the Flex-Tube responds to the internal pressure generated by bump stroke, propelling the diatomite and accumulated solids from its surface.
Flex-Tubes have a recommended operating differential of 20 psi and an ultimate of 75 psi.
