Filters for BioFuel Filtration
Amafilter and Nowata products are engineered and manufactured to meet stringent quality requirements and are rigorously tested before leaving our manufacturing plants. When you choose amafilter or Nowata products, you can be assured that you are buying leading-edge, high-quality, and cost-effective products from a leading company that has set the standards for biofuel filtration for over 30 years.
Typical filtration processes in biofuel production include:
Filtration of incoming feed-stock such as cold-pressed seed oils for pure vegetable oil fuel, crude rendered fat for fuel applications, and pre-treatment of refined oil.
Filtration of clay, carbon, and silica absorbents from refined oil.
Removal of haze and sterols from methyl ester (biodiesel).
Filtration of glycerin to remove solids or activated carbon.
Final product filtration.
4000 Series Refinery Filters – Backwash Filtration Systems for Refineries
The catalysts used in many of today’s processes for hydrocracking, hydrodesulfurizing, and hydrotreating are designed for long service life, requiring more effective removal of solids from the feedstock to avoid premature and expensive replacement due to plugging. The cost of replacing a catalyst load is expensive, often as much as twenty to thirty times the price of an effective tubular filter system. 4000 Series tubular backwash filters, ASME Code designed and stamped, provide cost-effective continuous protection for the life of catalytic reactors. The ProGuard Filtration System is designed for high temperature, high-pressure critical refinery applications where low maintenance, continuous operations are a necessity.

Backwashable Filters Systems
ProGuard is a dedicated line of tubular back washable filters. This means that the entire direction of the company, from the design of the product to the sales force, is focused on the efficient design, production, and use of these filter products in the field. Our company and our products are built around the concept of meeting our customer needs. Fast needs assessment and quotes, flexible designs and manufacturing, and an experienced field sales force — they all add up to provide you with responsiveness and the exact filtration system you need. These custom-engineered systems are designed to meet the unique requirements of refinery and petrochemical applications, as well as pulp & paper and other industrial uses that need backwash filtration. For information on standard media offered by ProGuard Filtration Systems, click here.
Automated ProGuard tubular backwash filters are designed to provide continuous, maintenance-free operation. The system continually monitors the dirt load coming into the filter and automatically decides to enter into the backwash cycle to clean the filter media.
Better Filter, Better Filtration
The concept behind these filters is to allow continuous operation of your system, with filter cleaning taking place as needed. Permanent filter media reduce your ongoing costs and eliminate the need to dispose of contaminated filter media.
How ProGuard Backwash Filters Work
During normal operation, dirty, unfiltered fluid enters the ProGuard filter system through the filter media in an outside to inside flow path. The clean fluid then exits the filter and returns to the process through the outlet header.
ProGuard pioneered the use of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) in tubular backwash filters. These highly dependable, programmable controllers activate the valve operation for the backwash cycle. A NEMA cabinet enclosure houses the PLC unit and can be specified in a rain-tight or even explosion-proof configuration.
