Coalescer and particle gas filter with Double Block and Bleed
A special design duplex filter for separating solids and/or aerosols (liquid content) from gases using a patented double block and bleed main transfer valve.
This is intended for applications using high pressures and/or dangerous gas compositions, to ensure maximum operator safety.

Using and operating the BOLLFILTER duplex filter type BFD-C/P DBB M

The BOLLFILTER duplex filter type BFD-C/P DBB M consists of two filter chambers. One filter chamber is in operation while the other is being cleaned or on stand-by.

If contamination exceeds a tolerance threshold, the unit can switch over to the clean filter side - by means of the Double Block and Bleed method - without any pulse pressure. The contaminated filter element is then cleaned while operation continues.

Safeguard your system with Double Block and Bleed technology

Double Block and Bleed (DBB) technology increases the system safety having an additional isolation as fail safe.

The downstream valve is first closed, followed by the upstream valve. When the primary isolation valve is closed, the media flow will have stopped. Secondary isolation can be closed and immediate trapped can be drained though the vent port.
