DFP 3000

DFP 3000_200 Nm³
Compressed air filter test rig

The compressed air filter test rig DFP 3000 delivers fully-automated measurements of fraction separation efficiency for compressed air filters under overpressure up to 7 bar, offering better results than ISO 12500. On request, we can also supply an additional filter holder for flat filter media. The fraction separation efficiency is measured with the new aerosol spectrometer Promo® 3000 P , which is equipped with pressure-resistant welas® aerosol sensors for raw gas and clean gas measurements.

The system offers the following advantages (among others):

  • Clear determination of the particle size and concentration directly under overpressure up to 10 bar
  • Automatic adjustment of the sampling volume flow in the event of pressure changes
  • No diffuser, no dilution required

The largely automated setup of the test sequence, the clearly defined individual components, and the individually adjustable sequence programs of the filter test software FTControl deliver the high reliability of our measurement results.

All air volume flows, and the overpressure in the system are automatically monitored and adjusted. The results are presented in detailed form in tables and diagrams and analyzed. With over 120 complete filter test systems manufactured and delivered in over 16 different versions, Palasis the world-leading manufacturer of filter test systems.
