Pentair V-MAX®

Source: Pentair Oil & Gas Separations

V-MAX® is a coreless filter that flows from the inside-to-outside like a bag filter but V MAX® technology can offer the same online life as a bag filter in a vessel that is roughly half the diameter. This is possible since the V-MAX® design offers up to ten times the available filtration media in the same element envelope.

V-MAX® Technology is a novel, and new category of solid-liquid separation, called Coreless Filtration, that was pioneered by Pentair. It enables purification of solid contaminated streams, offering high-purity, rapid, single-pass processing, while simultaneously reducing overall operating expense and improving operator ergonomics.

In many cases conventional bag filters, stacked disks, and leaf filters can be upgraded to coreless technology.
