Aqueous Cleaning

How it works

Aqueous cleaning processes at Carolina Filters include the use of acids, alkalis, and specialty mixtures of water soluble chemicals. Carolina Filters uses targeted chemistry, based on the contaminant and additives of each end user, that will provide passivation, scale or particulate removal, pH adjustment, or targeted contaminant removal. 


What we do

From fiber metal polymer melt filters to filter tubesheet bundles to porous metal blowback filters, nearly every component cleaned by Carolina Filters involves aqueous cleaning processes. 

Polymer melt filters are first subjected to bulk depolymerization and oxidation. Aqueous chemistries remove any residual additives and scale remaining in or on the filter media. With detailed neutralization procedures between each cleaning step, a cleaned filter will not only visually appear like new, but will demonstrate consistent test criteria within the filter set, depending on the number of cleaning cycles. 

"Throughout my career at Carolina Filters, our unwavering commitment to new and cutting edge technology has established us as the world's leader in metallic filter cleaning and testing."
