Used Filters (Liquid Process)
JM Industrial buys and sells used and unused filters such as bag, cartridge, pressure, centrifuges, filter presses and other filters from leading manufacturers in various specifications. Slurries or liquid-solid mixtures are produced as a byproduct of any process or due to contamination across process industries. Sometimes, these mixtures may be used as it is or filtered. During filtration, the liquids and solids are separated using liquid process filters. The remaining liquid may be an end product or by product of the process or may be used for producing another product. These filters are typically used in process applications involving high pressure and high temperature across food and beverage, fuel and chemical, water treatment, etc. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Types of Filters (Liquid Process)
What Are the Types of Used and Surplus Liquid Process Filters at JM Industrial?
Selecting the correct filter helps remove unwanted material from the liquid. We have a number of different filter types in our selection and you can choose the best one that meets your application requirements.
- Bag Filters: These filters are typically used to filter dust particles from the liquid being processed.
- Cartridge Filters: Cartridge filters are mostly used in lower flow rate applications for separating solids from liquids.
- Centrifuges: These filters are used for the separation of mixtures, which are heterogeneous in nature. As the name suggests, these mixtures work on the principle of centrifugation. The liquid and solid mixture is poured into the filter and the particles are separated based on their density.
- Filter Presses: These filters are used in liquid and solid filtration processes across industries. These presses separate liquid and solid mixtures using pressure filtration. The slurry to be filtered is pushed into the filter press and is dewatered by applying pressure. We provide these filter presses in various configurations.
- Pressure Filters: These filters are typically used for iron and manganese removal from groundwater. Pressure filters work similarly to gravity filters, which are contained within a durable steel vessel.
- Other Filters: Our selection features a wide range of filters, including single basket strainers, ceramic membrane filters, and Engel filters.
What Factors Should You Consider When Selecting A Liquid Process Filter For Your Application?
We have been regularly catering to clients across diverse industries. These industries have different filtration requirements. If you have been considering liquid process filters for your application then choosing the right one from our selection may be challenging. The following pointers will help you make the right decision.
- The flow rate of the process liquid: This is an important factor of consideration when choosing the liquid filter. The flow rate will be affected by the available area of the filter. This flow rate may vary depending on the viscosity of the liquid. The filter must be bigger enough to process the volumetric demand. Our selection features liquid process filters for all types of flow rates.
- Particle Size: The particle size is crucial when choosing or selecting the micron rating of the filter medium. The opening of the medium should be smaller than the particle size. This will help prevent solid particles of different sizes from passing through the filter.
- Viscosity: If the viscosity of the liquid is high, the flow flux will be lower and the filtration demand will be higher. Making the filter work at its highest specified limit will damage it in the long run. Thus, to avoid this, always choose filters that are large-sized to accommodate the highly viscous liquids and do not affect their flow rates.
- Chemical Compatibility: Our selection features filters made of different materials and featuring various accessories necessary for their functioning. Although designed for continuous operation, these filters may not be compatible with various chemicals. Every filter element, from filter media to adhesives to seals must be checked for chemical compatibility.
- Temperature: The liquid that remains behind after the filtration may be used in another process, so the filtration temperature is an important consideration. The filtration temperature affects the product quality as well as the viscosity and flow rate of the liquid. Having said this, the temperature of surrounding temperature must be considered, too. If the filter is operated in hot, humid, or challenging outdoor environments, it will have an effect on the filter operation. The filters must always be operated 5 degrees below or above their recommended filtering temperature.
- Dirt Load: Some slurries may have high dirt loads, which may affect the functioning of the filters. If you are dealing with such mixtures, multiple filters may be required. Choose the series of filters with low micron ratings for effective results.
