In-line wash flow safety screens take filtration to a higher level
Protecting components from contamination is essential in critical fluid control applications, such as those found in the aerospace, power generation and automotive industries. While many systems are designed to be relatively immune to low levels of small size contaminants, single larger rogue particles can cause blockages which could result in system failure and downtime.
To tackle such problems, Lee Products offers the new Lee HI-BAR wash flow safety screen. This configuration features a high strength, drilled safety screen integrated within a T-fitting assembly. The main, unscreened flow travels straight through the fitting while fluid exiting through the T fitting end passes through the filter to critical components requiring additional protection. This design can be easily customised to meet a wide range of fitting envelope, material and screen hole size specifications.
One of the important benefits of the HI-BAR wash flow safety screen is its one-piece smooth, internal surface. This eliminates risks associated with traditional wire mesh design filters that contain uneven surfaces and pockets within the pipe diameter which may potentially trap contaminants. With the HI-BAR wash flow screen, these contaminants will be washed uninterrupted downstream in the main, unfiltered flow.
Safety screens are vital wherever there is a need to protect critical fluid handling systems. While taking advantage of the washing effect to increase screen life, Lee HI-BAR wash flow screens provide protection for servo valves, bearings or any other component requiring finely filtered fluid. Currently they can be found in a wide range of uses in both fuel and hydraulic systems.
