The coalescer filter was used in hydrocarbon fuel contaminants to remove and separate water from fuel.
There will be 2 stages in the whole coalescer process. In stage 1, contaminants need to be removed by using a micron rating high flow cartridge filter and coalescer filter, which can separate water from fuel to get qualified fuel and hand it over to the end user.
Here the obvious problem would occur when TPP is used. There is a Chinese supplier’s cartridge filter below, you can find out the problem easily in the picture.
Brother Filtration, also a cartridge manufacturer, should not be judging our competitors. We can only say that the result of such usage is entirely due to insufficient communication before confirming the order.
As industry peers, it is clear to us that hydrocarbon is the cause. This is because polypropylene is not suitable for use with hydrocarbons. During the process, PP would begin to be soft and soft, till it can’t resist operation pressure.
It is obvious that finding a reliable filtration supplier is extremely important. A reliable filter manufacturer should know well about the application and filter material. The manufacturer has the responsibility to consider providing filtration solutions with material design from the outside cage, membrane, sealing, O-ring, and other plastic parts.
As we mentioned above, due to a lack of communication, an improper material was used in order, which caused the incompatibility between filter material and application requirements.
The sales team from Brother Filtration organized the meeting with the end user to collect more information about this project, which includes:
Those factors are what challenged us. Only by having the exact and right data can we design the most suitable filtration solution for the customer.
Based on the requirements of the project. We provided a Max-A high-flow filter cartridge with glass fiber filter media and a 5um absolute rating, to remove contaminants for stage 1. The reason Brother Filtration selected glass fiber is that the PP material would be swelling in hydrocarbon fluid.
For stage 2, we needed a coalescer filter to remove water from the fuel. Brother Filtration chose a coalescer filter as a substitution for the PALL coalescer filter. According to the customer’s application environment, we design the product structure that suits them.
Brother Filtration cared about every detail including the shipment. We packaged well for all filters. We wanted to make sure that our filter products keep in the best condition after a long transportation.
Additionally, Brother Filtration paid attention to the installation. Although we are not able to be on-site to provide guidance, we stay in close contact with the site staff and are always available to resolve any issues that arise.
Thanks to our attentive service, and professional analytical guidance, we have received satisfactory feedback from our customers. This is what we have been pursuing, to provide better filtration solutions for our customers and to make the whole process worry-free.
The customer said, “ the testing result is good and customers want to buy orders again!”
If you have the same problem with your coalescer and separator filter and want to improve your filtration system with a better solution, Brother Filtration would be a perfect choice for you.

The ocean occupies most of our planet, and desalination has been used more and more widely over the past 20 years. By using reverse osmosis systems, we help desalination plants to do their job and further help more plants to solve the problem of water shortage.
Every chemical plant is inseparable from industrial water filtration systems. Whether it is the purification and filtration of raw materials and final products or the treatment of industrial wastewater and unwanted chemicals generated during the production process, industrial filtration is a top priority.
Most petrochemical industry products are stored in large containers, such as diesel, gasoline, and fuel oil. This type of storage is highly likely to lead to impurities in the products and affect the product quality. Our mission is to offer efficient and reliable filtration systems for the petrochemical industry so that purification is not a big challenge.
The extremely rapid growth of the pharmaceutical industry has created a greater demand for industrial filtration. Whether it’s upstream cell fermentation, purification, or filtration, we can provide the solution. In addition, We are committed to filtration and separation, protecting the reliability and safety of production equipment.
The food and beverage industry is closely related to the daily life and health of each of us. Therefore, we must meet higher standards to filter these products. As your experts, we help you improve product quality, reduce production costs, and safeguard everyone’s health.
Nature itself has the ability to treat wastewater. But with the huge increase in human production and living activities, it can no longer handle such large amounts of wastewater. We, as industrial treatment producers, help nature to share the burden of wastewater treatment.
Industrial wastewater from mining activities contains high volumes of heavy metals, particulates, and residual chemicals. Wastewater must be purified and filtered in order not to pollute our water resources. We help your plant meet wastewater discharge standards.
In order to extract oil more efficiently and conveniently, large amounts of water must be injected underground to ensure water pressure. And since precious water resources are limited, our technology allows wastewater to be purified so that it can be reused.
When it comes to marine filtration, the first scene that appears in people’s is usually the sea or seawater. But marine filtration is more than seawater. A crucial resource on this planet is seawater. Large amounts of seawater are needed to generate fresh water for drinking and irrigation in locations with a lack of fresh water, just as ships sailing on the ocean need a lot of it for ballast water to keep the ship balanced. Marine filtration is not only about the seawater, but also the transported seawater. The ballast water is a kind of transportation of water. The cargo ships load the seawater from one place and discharge it at another port. The seawater traveled with the cargo ship in ballast tanks. This is the point many people will be indifferent about, the filtration before the discharge of the ballast water. People are familiar that we can not drink seawater directly, because it contains large quantities of salt and contaminants. But why do we need filtration for ballast water? it is just the seawater discharge into seawater. With the development of the environmental protection concept and the perfection of the law, we are constrained to filter the ballast…
The science and practice of extracting metals or metal compounds from minerals and transforming them into metallic materials with specific qualities using a variety of processing techniques is known as metallurgy. With the development of technology and the metallurgy industry, the filtration market in this area grows quickly annually. The need for filtration is increasing and the filter equipment is also developing. In the metallurgy industry, the rolling mill coolant and lubricate system need a filtration system. Equipment coolant and lubricating oil need to be filtered to remove contaminants and accomplish recycling in the metallurgical process in order to save input costs. Filtration can help to extend equipment service life and help equipment stay at optimum level. Based on their different filtration needs and characteristic, they have respective suitable filtration elements.
