Carbon Filtration Unit

Magnaflux carbon filtration units are designed to remove penetrants from post-rinsewater. Once clean, the rinsewater can be pumped to drain/waste (subject to local authority requirements) or recycled to another process.

The S500 unit comprises a pressure vessel fitted with inlet and outlet control valves. The pump, operated by float switches, forces contaminated water to the top of the vessel, which then passes down through the activated carbon filter bed, where the contaminants are removed.

The S500 can also be used in conjunction with a coalescing filter (S500C) to remove post-emulsifiable penetrant from pre-rinsewater.
