HYDRO-GUARD® PPB-R Series Backflushable Filter Cartridges

The most extensively used backflushable pleated filter in power plant condensate.

  • Backflushable pleated filter designed specifically for use in power plants
  • The Hydro-Guard PPB-R is used in condensate applications with resin precoat
  • Constructed with the highest purity materials (no fillers, talcs, TiO2 or surfactants) for minimal rinse-up time
  • Surface area exceeds that of conventional condensate filters by a 20:1 ratio for lower pressure drops, increased filter life and longer backflush cycles
  • Eliminates costs associated with use and disposal of powdered resins
  • Iron oxide and suspended copper are typically reduced by 98%
  • Constructed to retain the resin precoat on the surface for efficient backflushing and particle removal.

Pressure Drop/Flow Data

 
Model Delta Pressure ΔP = (k) (Flow Rate)
HGPPBR4 ΔP = (0.05) Flow Rate
HGPPBR10 ΔP = (0.03) Flow Rate
 

This information is with water at ambient temperatures. Differential pressuresare in PSID based on flow in GPM through a 10” (25.4 cm) element.

HGPPB-R also offered in tubesheet and cage designs.
