New Year, New Specials at Serfilco!

Serfilco Filtration Systems is starting off 2013 with all new specials.  Serfilco is featuring two products that will offer solutions to any filtration issue you may have.  When you purchase either of the products we are featuring this month, you can receive a 10% discount.  You will also receive a FREE initial set of cartridges when you purchase one of the Series ‘G’ Plastic Filter Chambers.  Below is a description of the two featured products.

Series “G” Plastic Filter Chambers

The Series ‘G’ Filter Chamber is designed for the filtration and clarification of a wide variety of process solutions providing extended solution life, improved quality and reduced operating costs.  The ‘G’ Chamber offers 12 to 60 cartridge capacity with flow rates to 125 GPM.

• Positive O-ring seal at base and cover
• Cartridge guides with screw-on caps for positive cartridge sealing

6 Reasons for Depth Wound Filter Cartridges

  1. TRUE DEPTH FILTRATIONMaxi-Depth, Maxi-Wind, Purefybe and Valuwound filter cartridges provide selective particle retention.  They are manufactured to provide true depth filtration, efficiently filtering throughout the path of the fluid.
  2. LONGER SERVICE LIFE – because the wound cartridge so successfully resists clogging, it’s not uncommon for a set of cartridges to filter many millions of gallons of chemicals, metal finishing solutions, aqueous and non-aqueous fluids before replacement.  Fewer filter changes obviously save both labor and materials.  More important is that production equipment is shut down less often for filter media servicing.  Such facts are important considerations in selecting the kind of filtration system you install.
  3. EASE OF SERVICE – depth cartridges do not require highly trained personnel for service.  Replacement can be done by almost anyone.  On most filter chambers, a top cover is removed, old cartridges are lifted out and new ones are set in place.  No solution is lost from the tank.  Changing can be done much quicker than filters that use loose media.
  4. POLLUTION ABATEMENT – cartridges present no liquid or wastewater pollution problem:  spent cartridges are disposed of as solid waste.
  5. WIDE CHOICE OF POROSITIES – wound cartridges reject particles from as low as 0.5 micron to 100 micron.  This wide range of porosities expands the customer’s ability to tailor his filtration system to his specific need, to select exactly the right cartridge, whether for single pass filtration or recirculation filtration.
  6. MODULAR DESIGN – most filter chambers designed to use wound cartridges in diameters of 2.5″ can accommodate several modular sizes of cartridges.  The choice is the users, based on economics and ease of change over; but filtration efficiency is not impaired, regardless of cartridge length.

Serfilco offers stock cartridges for immediate delivery.  Blanket orders with scheduled releases earn the lowest quantity price, plus gain “just in time” delivery.  In addition, filtration systems like the Mega-Flo and Super Space-Saver offer up to 455 sq. ft. of surface area and flow rates up to 21,000 GPH.
