• SORBFLOW Oil-Absorption Filter Cartridges

    BRANDT™ SORBFLOW cartridges employ a proprietary modified polymer to remove hydrocarbons from fluids. This polymer both absorbs and chemically binds the hydrocarbon molecules into its interior matrices. This differs from the design of the competition, which typically removes hydrocarbon via surface absorption onto the filtration medium.

     

    Description

    SORBFLOW cartridges enable users to reduce hydrocarbon levels to meet discharge regulations, while increasing the working life of valuable process fluids. The affinity of the polymeric absorbent for hydrocarbon molecules is so great, accelerated testing by the Toxic Characteristics Leachate Procedure (TCLP) indicated the effluent hydrocarbon level in water to be below current and proposed SEPA/EPA limits. The modified polymer controls the speed of absorption by eliminating the potential for skin formation at the polymer/hydrocarbon interface. Consequently, this polymer, when incorporated into a radial flow-design cartridge, ensures maximum utilization of surface area. The nature of the polymer makes it an effective absorbent for free, emulsified and dissolved oils, synthetic lubricants, grease and a multitude of organic solvents.
