Ink Filtration

Project Info


powerwise ink filtrationPowerwise offers a variety of filtration units. The most popular is the 1099 nylon coated in-line filter. This unit can be used with all models in the Powerwise range. For diaphragm and peristaltic pumps a filter mounting bracket is recommended.

The filter has a recleanable stainless steel basket sold in a variety of mesh sizes. The flow pattern is in from the bottom and out through the side; the convoluted mesh allows a greater surface area for filtration. Quick connectors are recommended for removal of the filter from the line for cleaning.

powerwise ink filtrationMagnets have become a great asset for the printer and many an anilox roll has been saved from damage by a magnet suspended directly in the ink flow from the top scoop of the filter. The rare earth magnet we use is a grade 38 MGO magnetic ring. A cleaning sleeve for the magnet is standard.

Other filters in stock are small in-line Y strainer’s (with or without magnet.) for narrow web printers. We also supply return line strainers, intake strainers for siphon tubes and magnet assemblies for hanging in the ink containers.

3/4 Inline Filter/Supressor Model 1099S

Ink Filter 1099S
Surge Suppressor/Filter

The inherent characteristic of double diaphragm pumps is that they pulse
causing surges in the flow of the ink. These surges can cause difficulty
because the flow is inconsistent. Furthermore they can cause problems
with doctor blades lifting from the roller. The surge suppressor when fitted to the discharge side of the pump can eliminate the eratic flow.

This unit also comes with a mesh basket and rare earth magnets. Therefore it filters the ink and removes ferrous particles.
