Sunds pulp refiner, 250 Litres of Chevron 68 Gear Compound oil
In October 2005 Catalyst Paper performed a full rebuild on their P4 Sunds refiner.
Since the system was very contaminated from the rebuild,they decided to try a CJC mobile Filter Separator to remove the particles and the water from the system during startup.
For this application we selected a CJC PTU2 27/27 PV-E2W fitted with a 3 micron absolute CJC Filter Insert BLAT 27/27. It was mounted on of heavy-duty cart to handle the tough environment of a paper mill.
For ease of portability, the filter was set up for 110 Volt input power.
3 oil samples were taken over the course of 48 hours and their results compared:
After 24 hours of filtration, the particles in the 2µm range dropped by 93%; after 48 hours the count was roughly 1% of the original value.
Similarly, water content went from 1,639 ppm to virtually zero.
