Clay Filter


The main function of a clay filter is to remove unwanted surface active surfactants, coloring and other additives which may be present from the refining process or during transportation of Jet Fuel. These unwanted surfactants can accumulate in the coalescer elements of a filter/water separator and reduce their water removal efficiency. Therefore such clay filter vessels are normally installed in front of a filter/water separator vessel. To enable optimum performance of the adsorption process of the Attapul-gas Clay, the recommended flow rate per element is 25 l/min.
