This oil filter skid was designed for an industrial refrigeration designer/builder contractor. The contractor wanted to be able to filter oil inline on ammonia compressors and ultimately chose a Tuthill L-Series gear pump to side stream the oil. It’s preferred to have a system that side streams the oil, rather than a system with the oil being in the process line. This way, filter loading does not affect system conditions and the overall safety of the system will not be at risk. The oil filter removes solid contaminants and moisture from compressor fluids helping to maximize the compressor’s life span. This assembly consisted of a Tuthill L-Series gear pump and a Hypro Filter housing piped together with Dixon ball valves to isolate the skid. The system is mounted on a painted carbon steel base.
