Greentech Lead America: Swift Filters, a manufacturer of
high quality replacement filter elements and custom filter elements, announced
an expanded offering of SwiftGreen filter elements for the wind power industry.
SwiftGreen element features a reusable machined aluminum
bypass valve assembly which reduces expenses and cuts disposal volume. This bypass
valve assembly can be used indefinitely. When it is time to replace a used
element, the bypass is removed and inserted into a fresh SwiftGreen element.
“As End of Warranty deadlines approach, many wind turbine
owners have switched to SwiftGreen filter elements. For example, we can provide
direct replacements for filters on GE, Siemens, or Mitsubishi units that will
benefit their owners with less hazardous waste disposal costs and lower
replacement costs. We help reduce the turbine owner’s environmental ‘footprint’
as well as save them money, typically 35 to 40 percent over traditional
(non-recyclable) return line filter elements,” said Ned Swift, president of
SwiftGreen elements can be used as direct replacements
for most major OEM filter elements. All elements employ the latest generation
of SwiftGlass Bx(C) ≥ 1000 (per ISO 16889) microfiber glass filter
media. This media provides high levels of fluid cleanliness while maintaining
low pressure drop characteristics.
SwiftGreen filter elements are used on the return side of
hydraulic/lubrication circuits, including those found in wind turbine, power
generation, machine tool and many industrial applications.
