ILMAP fibreglass media traps

Wednesday, 05 August, 2020 | Supplied by: Tecpro Australia

Known as media traps, safety traps or resin traps, these devices are used in a variety of applications to monitor and prevent the loss of expensive media in the event of a filter malfunction.

Until now, they could only be made using two materials — stainless steel, which can be manufactured in any size, and PVC, with its inherent size restrictions. Now there’s a third option, which can provide large, customised media safety traps without the high cost of stainless steel fabrication.

Italian filter and nozzle manufacturer ILMAP has released a range of fibreglass media traps that can be manufactured to any size. The cost of these units fits between the cost of comparably sized stainless steel and PVC media traps.

Whatever the application, media safety traps are used to control the loss of expensive resins, carbon or other media. They are also used in ion exchange columns, pharmaceutical resin treatments, food manufacturing processes and water treatment applications.

A media safety trap allows operators to monitor for any media leakage and diagnose the problem without shutting down production and avoiding the expensive process of removing the media to check for leaks.

The ILMAP media traps can be installed in new sites or retrofitted into existing filters — all customised to size and in a choice of stainless steel, PVC and now fibreglass. They also have the option of including pressure sensors which provide an automated warning about media leakage.
