Last Chance Filters
Protect your costly valves and equipment by stopping particles from causing failures.
What are Last Chance Filters?
Last chance filters are designed to remove and retain contamination, providing final protection of critical components from in-built and system-generated contamination. They prevent sudden, catastrophic failure in fluid systems and give you the peace of mind that your costly valves and equipment are protected.
Last Chance Filters Type Guide
Where space is an issue and flow is minimal. Suitable for micron ratings from 100µ to 750µ. Size typically ranging from 9mm to 500mm diameter.
Why are they important?
Last chance filters are important because they offer the last opportunity for filtration directly prior to the inflow into the component to be protected.
Although manufacturers apply the highest levels of cleanliness when producing new components, the chances are that some contamination will not be dislodged until the system becomes operational. Once in the system debris can often cause major, if not catastrophic failures. Micro-Mesh have developed a range of ‘Last Chance Filters’ designed specifically to catch these particles, whilst the main system filter is still required to collect the bulk contamination ‘Last Chance Filters’ are best fitted before costly valves and equipment to stop large particles from causing failures.
