Ask Filter Man about the Filter Application Lab

Share Article

When it comes to innovative solutions for your filtration needs, Ronningen-Petter is your dedicated business partner. Our Filter Applications Laboratory can help you achieve your filtration objectives - whatever they may be. Below are just a few common manufacturing challenges that our Lab has successfully addressed. We are pleased to announce the availability of the new Process Simulation Cell, a benchtop test method that can be used to estimate application performance of backwashing and bag/cartridge filter systems, using a small quantity of customer-supplied sample.

Do any of these sound familiar to you?


        In my plant, industrial process filtration is a direct requirement of our production process because of environmental regulations or other specifications. How do we meet these directives with the least overhead cost?

  •     We know that a good filtration system could solve a lot of our manufacturing challenges and improve our process, however we're not exactly sure which system would work best in our plant. How do we go about collecting data and analyzing our needs?
  •     Because filtration costs increase dramatically as the filter retentions are decreased, how do we identify where we need filtration and avoid "extra" filtration that's not cost effective? How do we even go about analyzing the optimal media selection and achieving the proper filter system sizing?
  •     Our production facilities don't have the necessary lab capabilities to adequately analyze process filtration results. How do we measure our current needs and/or justify any improvements?

Your Goals Are Our Goals

To help answer these and many other filtration questions, we routinely analyze customer-submitted samples to determine the amounts and characteristics of the solids present before we recommend any of our products.

Our Filter Applications Lab can simulate certain customer processes to determine filter performance and select media based on your needs. If the application cannot be simulated, we offer a variety of additional on-site customer testing solutions to ensure that your new filtration system will meet your needs prior to purchase. And because our objective is to always provide the best, most cost effective filtration products available, the initial analysis is offered at no additional charge.

Using our research results - and your own process requirements - we can specifically design an integrated system that meets or exceeds your goals. It's just our way of providing unsurpassed customer satisfaction - every time.
