A Lower Price Is Never The Answer
We are all very aware of initiatives to potentially achieve savings and improve our bottom line results. In many cases, the perception is that a lower price will result in savings; this is not the case in the area of filtration. Consider one filter with a unit cost of $15 verses another at $30, yet the filter costing $30 provides superior performance results to that of the $15 filter. This performance could be realized in terms of:
- Improved retention/removal of debris (contaminant) in the process flow stream.
- Increased throughput (volume filtered) or a safety benefit of operator exposure by reducing the number of filter changes.
- The cost of filtration operation.
