Your filter is doing exactly what it’s designed to do: to reach a “satisfactory” level of cleanliness without restricting flow rates. The Halex Coil is a device that enhances the performance of the existing oil filter and extends equipment life. Constructed of rare-earth neodymium magnet, it draws particles that are too small for the filter to catch, resulting in cleaner oil. The unit attaches to the outside of a filter and performs without changing flow-rate or intruding on internal systems. Halex Development Corp., Madbury, NH, 603-817-6125,

Tank level gauges

Mid-West Instrument introduces a new line of tank level gauges specifically designed for Cryogenic/Liquefied Gas for both stationary and mobile applications that works for both vertical and horizontal tanks. The new 115/116 gauges feature a dry bellows design with internal bi-directional relief valves with no liquid fill required to protect the unit from over-range. The gauges are also ideal for the He and H2 service. LHe and LH2 range gauges are 30 lbs lighter than the competition allowing more product to be transported. DP ranges from 0-10" H2O to 0-415" H2O (0-25 mbar to 0-1 bar). Mid-West Instruments, Sterling Heights, MI, 800-648-5778,

Disc filter

Click here to enlarge image

The heart of the SpiderTM disc filter, from Siemens’ Davco Products, is a unique pleated design that captures up to 40% more solids and operates at twice the normal headloss of woven or pile media systems. Higher headloss ensures a proper flow thru pattern and twice the treatment capacity in a small footprint. The system is designed for tertiary filtration, industrial water reuse, product recovery and conventional filter retrofit applications. Because it operates from the inside-out and discharges into the tank, solids built up on the inside are easily backwashed. Siemens Water Technologies, Warrendale, PA, 866-926-8420,
