Aquacon® Water Absorbing Cartridges
Aquacon Cartridges have
a patented* construction for removing dirt and water from hydrocarbon and other oils as
well as gases. The outer media layer filters out silt, rust and other particulate
contaminants. The inner layers absorb water and chemically bond it so that no water will
release downstream. When the Aquacon Cartridge reaches its water holding limit, the media
swells shut and the differential pressure rapidly increases. This signals the operator
that the cartridge must be changed.

Synthetic Media Filter Cartridges FOS SeriesDescription
FOS Series synthetic media cartridges provide excellent filtration performance for a wide variety of industrial applications. They excel in applications where water or chemicals cause softening or degradation of conventional resin impregnated cellulose (pleated paper) filter media. Due to the finer synthetic fibers used, FOS cartridges have a low pressure drop. Replacing an equivalent size paper filter will, in many cases, result in improved filtration efficiency, higher flow rates, longer service life, and significant cost savings.
Adsorbent Media Cartridges
Velcon adsorbent media cartridges
combine the highest grade sorbing materials with specially selected structural components.
Field proven at major semiconductor companies, these cartridges maintain oil quality in
the most corrosive environments. Models LA-61801B and LA-71801B contain a special grade of
fullers earth mined in Florida and Georgia. This clay is heat refined to increase
sorbing capacity and water resistance. Models LB-71801 and LB-1107B contain a granular
form of activated alumina that has proven most effective for oil purification.
