Car Manufacturer Selects Contour Filter for Paint Production

AmazonFilters has received a further order from a leading car manufacturerto deliver an optimised filtration system to ensure the quality of theelectrophoretic paint stages on their production paint line 

Withthe success of previous installations, the leading carmanufacturer wanted to use the same combination of Amazon Filters 63Series industrial inclined filter housing fitted with Contour largediameter melt-blown cartridge filters to protect their paint baths.

David Keay, export sales manager for Amazon Filters commented “They optedfor our Contour filters over alternative bag filters and standard cartridges,due to their ease of use and the high flow capacity. Whilst Contour is acoreless filter, for this application it was supplied and fitted with a core.The rationale behind this was to reduce downtime during the filter change outand, assist operators with the removal of the filter cartridge after use. TheContour filter can then be removed much easier as the unique inserted coreprevents the media from sticking to the permanent support tube inside thehousing, typically caused by paint agglomeration “.

Contour cartridges are produced using a unique manufacturing process resulting in high efficiency filtration and consistent reliable performance. Engineered to operate in high flow applications, the high capacity, low pressure loss media used in Contour filters is an ideal choice for use in a wide range of automotive manufacturing processes. No resins, binders or other materials are used in the manufacturing process, this results in a fibre free, un-contaminated process fluid. As a result, Contour cartridge filters are able to deliver excellent performance in terms of life, disposal costs and overall cost effectiveness when compared to conventional cartridges.
