CJC Filter Cartridge Holding Capacity

ááá In order to find out how much "dirt" one CJC filter cartridge can contain, the following test was carried out with an HDU 427/108 filter system containing 16 cartridges of type HDU 27/27.á The application was filtration of engine lube oil (on board a container ship).

According to Weight:

Weight of one set of used cartridges 225.00 kg
Weight of one set of new cartridges 58.08 kg
Contents of the set of used cartridges 166.92

According to Volume:

Volume of one set of used cartridges 200.00 ltr.
Volume of cellulose in one set of new cartridges 52.80 ltr.
Volume of oil and sludge in set of used cartridges 147.20 ltr.

To calculate the specific gravity of oil and sludge:á 166.92 kg / 147.20 ltr. = 1.13

According to engine oil / sludge data tables, we can determine that the sludge content is 0.94 (94%) for a specific gravity of 1.13

Therefore, we can deduce that the used filter cartridge set contains the following weight of sludge material: 0.94 x 166.92 kg = 156.90 kg

This further translates to an individual cartridge containing the following weight of sludge material: 156.90 kg / 16 cartridges per set = 9.8 kg per cartridge (21.5 lbs per cartridge)

It should be noted that the weight of contaminant contained in a single cartridge will vary depending on the application and type of contaminant.á We have found through many years of experience that the weight of contaminant contained in a single cartridge type HDU 27/27 and B 27/27 averages between 5 kg and 7 kg (11 lbs and 15 lbs).
