Simulation of Filter Performance

Specially developed to simulate the filter performance, our CFD software SuFiS® serves in daily use to determine the pressure drop, velocity distribution and efficiency to be expected for filter applications. Thus it is used for a continuous optimization of our filtration systems.

On a virtual basis the impact of different oils, filter media and shapes (single layer, bag-type or pleated, SmartMedia® and CombiMedia®), temperature, flow rates, filter media loading conditions and geometry changes can be estimated. This data gives our customers in an early stage of development the possibility to optimize the overall system.
