All cartridge filters are good, Some are better!

Filtering cartridges are very common products used in many industrial processes to clarify/decontaminate a broad variety of liquids (beverage, pharmaceutics, chemicals, paints, varnishes, blood, drinking water,…) and on as many types of machines (aircrafts, engines, boats, fluid power systems, road and off-road vehicles, machine tools,…).

If efficient, all filtering cartridges, whatever their type, clog, what means their differential pressure increases and/or flowrate decays. Then they cannot fulfil their function correctly and need being replaced. This creates a huge market of renewable products with plenty of suppliers offering very diverse cartridges.
 
Criteria to choose a cartridge and its supplier rather than another one strongly depend on its application. But in all cases, the key criterion is filtration efficiency. another one possibly being retention capacity.
 
Filtration efficiency guarantees the quality of the filtered liquid. It is specified/expressed by a percentage of efficiency in percent or a filtration ratio (e.g. ß) at a given particle size or by a rating, i.e. a particle size supposed to correspond to a given, often not claimed, efficiency.
 
Since the efficiency measurement method, equipment and products directly impact the values of efficiency, many professional sectors, including filter cartridge manufacturers and their end users agree on standard methods, often a compromise between technical and cost requirements, such as ASTM, NFPA, SAE or ISO standards.
 
All standard procedures allow variations of different details, e.g. accuracy of measuring instruments, variations in test conditions, type of equipment, validation criteria, etc. This means that performances claimed according to any standard by any manufacturer may not be comparable to those claimed by a competitor for the same application.
 
Thus only independent third party testing centre results can really be trusted when evaluating competing products.

How Do Smart Manufacturers Prove Their Product Is Better Than the Competition’s and save Testing cost?

Filter is a consumable product which needs replacing termly, the market is huge; the competition is very fierce. Almost each filter manufacturer has many competitors in different application fields. Undoubtedly, each filter manufacturer hopes to gain more business by proving to the customer that their own products have better cost performance than their competitor(s).

Analyse the performance of competitor’s product, compare with their own product and the customers’ requirement is the most common strategy. Many filter manufacturers invest their own test lab that has the capability of facing to the OEM customers; they buy testing equipments for research & development works and the analysis of competitors. During the certificating process by the OEM customers (filter users), test ability is an indispensable part.

But, there have so many testing items for a filter. No one could equip all the test equipments. And there also exist the risk to the filter manufacturer when they developing new OEM customer, they need to prove to the customer their lab is capable and trustable. A smart filter manufacturer will evaluate the quantity of each test item instead of invest the test equipments blindly; Even they have the test ability for a test item, some manufacturers prefer to choose presenting test report by the third party lab, it is helpful to impress the customer and shows the ability of themselves. 

IFTS founded in 1981, it is a fully independent and professional liquid filter testing organization; Acting as the Europe filter testing centre and the world reference lab, IFTS is in service to hundreds of the customers around the world. Filter manufacturers use IFTS’s third party testing report to prove the performance of their product(s) to the customer, the filter users use IFTS’s services for monitoring the performance of the suppliers. There have some successful stories that the manufacturers gained the good business without investing the test equipments.

聪明的滤清器制造商如何证明他们的产品比竞争对手的更好并且节约试验费用?

  滤清器是一种需要定期更换的易耗品,市场需求量非常巨大,竞争也非常激烈。几乎每家制造商在不同的领域都有很多竞争对手。毫无疑问,每个厂家当然都希望证明自己的产品比其竞争对手的产品具备更高的性价比,以实现提高销量的最终目的。

  分析竞争对手的产品性能,与自己的产品以及客户的需求进行比对,这是很常用的策略。很多有实力进入主机配套市场的生产商纷纷投资建设自己的实验室,为自己产品的研发、分析竞争对手采购测试设备。而主机厂商认可滤清器生产商的过程中,测试能力的评估是必不可少的环节。

  然而,滤清器的测试项目繁多,任何一个生产商都不可能配齐所有的测试设备。而且,对于新开发的主机厂客户,生产商也面临一个说服客户相信自己测试能力和测试数据的问题。聪明的滤清器制造商会评估自己对于每个检测项目一年的需求量,而不是盲目地投资测试设备;而且即便自己有测试能力,对于一些新开发的主机厂客户,聪明的制造商会选择第三方测试,这对于增加自己在潜在客户心目中的印象分大有帮助。

  IFTS 作为一家成立于1981年的专业第三方液体滤清器测试机构,作为欧洲过滤测试中心和世界参考级实验室,为全球数百家客户提供独立的测试服务。制造商客户通过IFTS的检测报告来向他们的客户证明自己产品的性能,而主机厂客户则通过IFTS的检测报告来监督供应商的质量。不论是滤清器产品的用户还是制造商都能从中获益。一些初期尚不具备某项目测试能力的生产商利用IFTS的资源,在不投资检测设备的情况下依旧获得了可观的订单。
