TurboGuard® Condensate Filters

Graver’s TurboGuard® High Flow Filter is designed specifically for use in condensate streams or other critical utility applications where substantial dirt holding and CRUD removal properties are essential. TurboGuard High Flow Filters are available in a variety of retention ratings, lengths and gasket materials to meet the specific needs of your project.

Typical Applications:

  • Pre-filter for removal of CRUD and TSS to extend deep bed demineralizer service life
  • Pre-filter to prevent premature fouling of RO membranes
  • Used in boiler condensate for both nuclear and fossil plants, heat recovering steam generators and combined cycle plants

Advantages of the TurboGuard® Filter System

  • High flow in a compact footprint, space saving design
  • Inside-to-outside flow prevents contamination during element replacement
  • TurboGuard Filters are wrapped in a one-piece extruded outer cage pre-venting excessive media expansion due to inside-to-outside flow
  • TurboGuard’s one-piece extruded outer cage allows for easier maintenance and removal after use
  • One-piece molded end caps, including molded-in handle for secure handling during installation and removal
  • Quad Seal gasket system provides maximum sealing surfaces with no bypass of inlet to outlet water
  • High dirt holding capacity: approximately 25 lbs (11.5 Kg) before removal is required
  • Low pressure drop: < 0.2 bar at the beginning of a service run at specified flow rate
  • Optimized media surface area allows full use of installed media area – not blocked off by media “squeezing”
  • Ergonomic vessel design with Davit Arm or hinged cover
  • Dirty elements can be crushed or incinerated for easy disposal

Design Specifications

  • Fits many applications including full-flow or partial-flow condensate filtration, deep bed demineralizer protection, RO pre-filtration and the retrofit of competitive large geometry units.
  • All standard vessels are sized to accommodate Graver Technologies’ 60” TurboGuard filter elements. 20” and 40” sized units are available by request.
  • All vessels are ASME Code Section VIII Division I stamped
  • Horizontal design facilitates easy filter cartridge change out and minimizes pressure drop
  • Equipped with 2” Clean and Dirty Drains and 1/2” Gauge and Vent Taps

TurboGuard® Vessel Guide

Vessel selection is based upon first selecting the proper material of construction – either unlined carbon steel or 316 Grade Stainless Steel. The next critical component to select is the maximum operating design pressure – either 250 psig or 400 psig. The final design criteria to select is the maximum design flow rate for the filter.
