Innovative FiltrexTM filter elements are made of a novel patented filter material based on cellulose. This material can bind dissolved, emulsified and dispersed oil from water by chemical adsorption. In only one cycle, a retention rates up to 95% is achieved. The efficiency can be increased by cascading two or three systems. The unique design allows significant higher flow rates compared to activated carbon at minimum differentials pressure. The formation of any by-pass channels can be excluded. The application range covers the chemical and metal processing industries. The material can be used e.g. to clean contaminated surface water, bilge water in ships, condensate from compressor, and for many other applications.
