The ICS engineering group has 30 years of experience in acceptable uses of metal and ceramic materials in harsh environments. Our engineers can design filtration systems to incorporate these filter materials in complete working systems. ICS can fabricate prototype systems for customer testing. Furthermore, ICS is located 15 minutes from Oak Ridge National Laboratory where we access their world-class people and analytical equipment in ICS new product development.
ThermaPore™ filters have long operating lives, as they can be cleaned in place or removed for remote cleaning. In-situ cleaning is initiated automatically after long periods of low temperature filtration reaches the maximum designed back pressure. Using high-temperature incineration of trapped particulate matter, the filter is “regenerated” or cleaned in place, using electric or gas heat. The low weight or thermal mass of the ICS filter cartridges achieves “regeneration” temperatures in less time than competitive products, resulting in reduced cleaning costs.
A catalyst can be applied to the ICS media to reduce the temperature of particle combustion. Catalyst applications reduces the ignition temperature required to oxidize the trapped particulate matter and saves cleaning energy. Application of a catalyst does not reduce the porosity of the media or increase back pressure.
