Purification

Purity is fundamental in all we do at L-Factor;
there’s purity in our business actions,
purity in our customer relations, & naturally,
Purity resulting from our Air-&-Gas Technologies

PURE ‘pyoor’ adj. CLEAN, FREE OF DIRT OR UNWANTED SUBSTANCES, UNCONTAMINATED, WITHOUT ADDITIVE OR ANYTHING HARMFUL, NOBLE, ACTING ETHICALLY, SPEAKING KINDLY, UPRIGHT, GENUINE

At Lawrence Factor® we believe that the making of purified gases is much like the making of other products - - involving a number of processes and quality assurances. Because extreme purity is crucial for many of these gases, such as Breathing-Air or gases used in Pharmaceutical production - - it’s even likely that these gases are required to comply with formal regulations.

The making of a purified gas could get quite complex, starting at the intake of a compressor, followed by other mechanical filtration, and finally, at the molecular level, by a sorbent or catalytic purifier. It may simply consist of stand alone or point of usage purifiers.

Count on Lawrence Factor® when counting on PURE Air-&-Gas. Our purification products achieve results that make your gases glisten to the standards you seek - - effectively, efficiently, EASILY.

Others make Air & Gas. We ensure that it's PURE!




High-Pressure Purification Systems

High pressure jobs sometimes depend on high-pressure air & gas. For instance; a deep sea diver plunging into ocean depths toting a capsule of air on his back or a transit-driver at the helm of a bus fueled by a tank of natural gas.

Getting those gases as clean, dry, and pure as possible requires equipment that can work under even greater pressures - - without fail. These pressures can reach upwards of 20,000 PSI.

Based on “Once-Through” cartridge concept & built of brawny materials like all stainless-steel fasteners and fittings, we provide a product meant to last a lifetime. Matter of fact we even warranty it for a lifetime against corrosion. The secret lies in veneers of protective plating over aerospace metals making up our pressure vessels - - and making them impervious to nature's meanest elements. The result of all this care is a purification appliance meant to last a good long time while requiring a minimum amount of maintenance - a reflection of our concerns for your concerns.

L-Factor Purification Appliances operate on the simple concept of pushing your gas through a series of Once-Through disposable filter cartridges housed within vessels rated for the working pressure. The resulting gas is precisely controlled through configuration and selection of cartridges. When the gas quality begins to diminish the cartridges are replaced with fresh ones.

For Reliable Air/Gas purification, you need an appliance that performs to the highest standards. One designed to lick the most tenacious impurities. One that is able to flex when technology does. We build them so tough that we even include a LIFETIME WARRANTY! All of this - - a reflection of our concerns for your concerns.




Producing high purity compressed gas in phases:

PHASE 1, COMPRESS:
Increase gas pressure as high as practical. This ‘squeezes’ out a great portion of the liquid vapors such as oil or water droplets
PHASE 2, COALESCE:
Remove remaining liquid vapors as-well-as solid substances & particles. This is accomplished with a mechanical filter or coalescor. The greater the efficiency of this filter, the better the job it will do.
PHASE 3, DRY:
Adsorb remaining water vapor and vaporous hydrocarbons, accomplished with high-potency adsorbent materials such as silicas and zeolites.
PHASE 3, ADSORPTION:
Removal of gaseous, molecular level contaminants such as carbon dioxide, humidity, and gaseous hydrocarbons. This can be performed by a variety of sorbents and desiccants.
PHASE 4, ABSORPTION & CATALYSIS:
Remove volatile hydrocarbons, solvents, odorous hydrocarbons, and other organic substances via an assortment of absorbents, catalysts, and impregnated materials.
PHASE 5, MICRONIC FILTRATION:
Lastly, removal of any particulate carryover by capture onto highly efficient filter devices.

Compressed Breathing-Air can be found in pipelines and tanks in many many applications. The most familiar being SCUBA Divers tanks or a Fireman's SCBA pack. Pressures rise to over 5000 PSI.

Our standard Breathing-Air purification appliances satisfy most worldwide standards for producing Breathing-Air purity and can be mated to compressor packages up to 75 SCFM. Jump to our Super Tower systems and capacities rise to over 150 SCFM. With our "once-thru" X-pendable cartridge concept - contaminants remain in the cartridge. In the array of model choices you'll find a solution for most every scenario. They are stout, they are efficient, and they are practical.

Built on the same stout design concepts as our standard Breathing-Air Purifiers, these models were created for lower flow rates of 2-8 SCFM. By integrating coalescing and sorption phases into a single unit we are able to serve up a power-packed purifier in a tiny package - without sacrificing capabilities.

Polishing clean gases to ultra pure levels (up to 99.99%) requires equipment designed to those standards. Our Hyper Purifiers will meet the demands of applications such as very pure laboratory gases, blending gases, oxygen compatible air, and anywhere that "zero air" might be required. Hyper purifiers are a practical & easy way to produce these polished gases. Determining the appropriate model is easy too - with the help of our technical representatives.

Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is an alternative vehicle fuel, produced from pipeline gas whose pressure is raised to 3000+ PSI. Quality about purity of this gas is of utmost concern.

Our CNG Dryers were developed with the small to medium sized fueling stations in mind, producing dry, particle-free fuel. L-Factor CNG Dryers offer a practical choice in comparison against high and lo-pressure regenerative dryers. Due to our "once-thru" cartridge concepts - contaminants remain in the cartridges, there are no loose desiccants to contend with or clean up after, there are no electrical requirements and little danger of environmental pollution. These packages are a quick & cost-effective means for adding a dryer to most CNG stations - - up to 150 SCFM.
