Removal of solids from liquids or gasses by flowing the contaminated liquid through a filter.

Effects of solids contamination

Filtration is a physical process that separates solid matter from a fluid like hydrocarbon fuels or gases using a filter medium that has a complex structure through which only the fluid can pass.

There are several reasons to remove solids from liquids and gases:

  • Remove impurities such as pipe-scale and sand from process streams.
  • Reduction of abrasive wear and blockage in hydraulic and lubricating systems.

The experience of designers and users of hydraulic and lube oil systems has verified the following fact; over 75% of all system failures are a direct result of contamination.
