Industrial Liquid Filtration Applications

Industrial processes often experience heavier sand and solids problems than other applications. LAKOS Industrial Separators are specifically designed to remove these solids from the fluid stream and safely purge them to another location.

This helps to:

  • Increase Process Efficiency
  • Reduce Maintenance Costs
  • Lower Energy Costs – get our Return On Investment tool in USA or metric formats.

Where it Works


Using a LAKOS Separator as a pre-filter prior to finer filtration improves
efficiency and minimizes liquid loss. As a result:

  • Reduce disposal cost
  • Minimize labor, maintenance downtime and filter media replacement costs
  • Extend the life of finer filtration and water treatment systems
  • Increase the life of filter cartridges and bags and eliminates water treatment processes

Protect Heat Exchangers

LAKOS Separators offer effective protection for heat exchangers against fouling. As a result:

  • Maintain design efficiencies for better heat transfer rates = energy savings
  • Reduce maintenance frequency for heat exchanger equipment
  • Remove suspended grit and scale

Protect Spray Nozzles

LAKOS Separators removes solids that clog spray nozzles and other small orifices. This helps to:

  • Maintain original nozzle design for efficient spray coverage
  • Prevent wear abrasion and clogging – reducing frequency of nozzle replacement
  • Prevent wear abrasion and clogging – reducing frequency of nozzle replacement

Reduce Waste

LAKOS Separators remove solids from liquids in your industrial process and allow reuse of the liquid. As a result:

  • Reduce disposal cost
  • Extends the life of process liquids by removing troublesome solids
  • Concentrates solids for easy disposal or allows for recovery of high value solids
  • Reduces replacement of downstream filter elements/media
  • Improve water chemistry
  • Extend the life of pump seals, valves, and process equipment

Prevent Solids Accumulation in Sumps and Basins

Using a LAKOS Separator as part of your process cooling system minimizes accumulation of solids that typically settle in sumps and basins. As a result:

  • Fewer shutdowns
  • Reduces solids build-up and decreases clean out time
  • Avoids solids-induced microbial growth, decreases chemical use, and increases process liquid life
