The use of the GATHER inline filter
The GATHER filter with drain plug is a universal filter designed even for extreme process conditions. Operating temperatures of up to 350°C at system pressures of up to 500 bar are possible. When using this filter, the filter body components must be tightened to a torque of 120 Ncm. This filter is available in stainless steel and Hastelloy filter types, which make it suitable for use with aggressive media.
The use of “pleated” filter elements enables compact design and large filtering surface (48cm2) with only minimum pressure losses.
The filter is thus optimally suited for use as a pre-filter in suction lines, for example to protect GATHER magnetic drive gear pumps.
The filter has no inherent heat source and is as such not subject to ATEX provisions. It may thus be used without reservations in potentially dangerous zones.
The filter element can be easily cleaned in an ultra-sonic bath or by backflushing (also via the drain).
