Oil Absorbing Filter Cartridge

Oil Absorbing Filter Cartridges are formed in such a technique, that this filter media is capable of removing up to 95% of total hydrocarbons from water in a single pass. Filter media of these Oil Absorbing Filter Cartridges is the material containing modified cellulose. Dissolved oil, emulsions & dispersed droplets are adsorbed and retained from water by the filter media.

Oil Absorbing Filter Cartridges have been specifically developed and manufactured for the high efficiency removal of dissolved & dispersed oils from water, within the gas & oil production industries, contaminated surface water runoff, marine bilge and ballast water treatment systems & other industrial process industries.

Features & Benefits

  • Instantaneous adsorption
  • Better than activated carbon
  • Removes dissolved and dispersed oils
  • High flow rates
  • Low pressure drop
  • High efficiency removal of oils
  • No release of removed hydrocarbons
  • Media can hold 300 % of its own weight
  • Typically, over 90% of total hydrocarbons are removed in a pass through the cartridge with no release once adsorbed
  • Higher flow rates also can be achieved by connecting cartridges in parallel
  • Lower outlet levels of hydrocarbons can be achieved by connecting cartridges in series

Oil Absorbing Filter Cartridges are made by rolling the sheet material onto a central core support. The core & outer surface of filter media rolls are covered with retaining mesh. The complete module is then encapsulated in to end caps, suitable for fitting into a variety of housing configurations.
