||The first step in selection a Beach filter is to establish operating parameters. The filter selected should not be based on pipe size alone.The important factors are location of the filter (near point of air use), maximum air flow and outlet pressure required and the volume of contaminants to be removed. If considerable contamination is present in the air to be filtered, a larger filter may be needed than the air flow parameters indicate. Remember - NEVER UNDERSIZE YOUR FILTERS. If parameters indicate near capacity operation of the filter, select the next larger size.
Pressure Drop Versus Flow Rate (SCFM)
The table below gives suggested flow rates for certain pipe sizes at tested pressures. This is only a guide to assist in selection the proper filter size.
