Three-Layer Filtration of Vacuum Pump Filter Element

The first layer of filtration for the vacuum pump filter element is coarse and captures dust and small particles from the gas sucked into the vacuum pump during operation. Filtering these external impurities significantly reduces the pressure on the subsequent two layers of filtration and decreases damage to internal components, prolonging the pump’s lifespan.

Oil filter

As a medium for achieving vacuum functionality, the quality of vacuum pump oil must remain intact. Operating in high-temperature environments causes the oil to degrade gradually, forming carbonization and gelation. Friction from internal components at high speeds generates dust particles, mixing with deteriorating pump oil. The moderately priced second layer of the filter element filters the oil, safeguarding internal components.

During operation, the vacuum pump releases gases containing oil mist particles. Without separation, these particles contaminate the air and environment. Since vacuum pump oil depletes quickly, requiring daily replenishment, the filter element filters the emitted gases. The filter paper used in the element possesses exceptional precision, preventing liquid oil mist particles from passing through. Instead, they adhere to the filter paper, gradually aggregating and returning as oil into the pump, while filtered gas exits smoothly.

Despite their small size, the filter element play a significant role in the overall machinery. The three-layer filtration not only enhances pump efficiency but also minimizes external and internal damage, ensuring prolonged use and increased profitability for factories. At Btlas, we prioritize customer satisfaction and offer customized filtration solutions to meet diverse industrial needs.  Here we recommend you using Btlas vacuum pump filter.
