A filter element that, in addition to its filter medium, has a magnet or magnets incorporated into its structure to attract and hold ferromagnetic particles.



Related Terms

FABRICATION INTEGRITY POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first stream of gas bubbles are emitted from a wetted filter element under standard test conditions.

IN-LINE FILTER

A filter assembly in which the inlet, outlet and filter element axes are in a straight line.

CLEANABLE

A filter element which, when loaded, can be restored by a suitable process, to an acceptable percentage of its original dirt capacity.

COLLAPSE

An inward structural failure of a filter element which can occur due to abnormally high pressure drop (differential pressure) or resistance to flow.

FLOW FATIGUE RATING

The ability of a filter element to resist a structural failure of the filter medium due to flexing caused by cyclic differential pressure.

BURST PRESSURE RATING

The maximum specified inside-out differential pressure that can be applied to a filter element without outward structural or filter-medium failure.

ADSORBENT FILTER

A filter medium primarily intended to hold soluble and insoluble contaminants on its surface by molecular adhesion.

BUBBLE POINT

The differential gas pressure at which the first steady stream of gas bubbles is emitted from a wetted filter element under specified test conditions.

BRIDGING

A condition of filter element loading in which contaminant spans the space between adjacent sections of a filter element, thus blocking a portion of the useful filtration.

MANIFOLD FILTER

A filter in which the inlet and outlet port axes are at right angles, and the filter element axis is parallel to either port axis.
