Customer needs drive Ashra Consultants' internal processes in product development quality and delivery.
Filter testing facilities are available at our captive laboratory. Filters are tested for Flow Rate, Pressure Drop, Efficiency, Dust Holding Capacity etc. as per standard test procedures.
Media used in the filtration systems are tested for Permeability, Porosity, Pore Sizes, Burst Strength etc.
Filters are developed after complete testing of the media used and as well as testing of the final/finished product as specified by the customer.
It is the Customer needs which drive Ashra Consultants’ internal processes in Product Development, Quality and Delivery.
Ashra Filters and Air Oil Separators (AOS) are designed to trap the contaminants in Air or Fluid and prevent them from damaging the downstream engine by wear and tear. At the same time it is ensured that no excessive restriction is built up across the filter or AOS.
For AOS the filtration media are very carefully selected so that they separate oil and water present in compressed air in any form - vapour, liquid or aerosol. Thus the downstream compressed air is free of these contaminants.
For Air Filters and Liquid Filters again, specific media appropriate to their application are selected to ensure effective and efficient working of the filters.
To maintain and ensure sustainable quality of paper and media, maximum quantum of Ashra media is sourced from reputed suppliers abroad. Each supply of paper / media is tested before being released to production.
Comprehensive test facilities for internal use are available at our R&D centre. A newly designed filter is first validated for its performance in the R&D laboratory and then only it is released for production. Validation or performance tests are performed according to the appropriate national or international test standard.
Ashra Consultants Pvt Ltd. has established an independent R&D unit specifically for Testing of Filters and Filter Paper / media. It is situated in Bhosari Industrial area, on the outskirts of Pune.
The R&D Laboratory is equipped to carry out following types of tests:
Paper/Media characteristics like Basis Weight, Thickness, Porosity, Permeability, Mean and Max Pore sizes.
Air Cleaner Performance tests – Clean Pressure Drop, Dust Holding capacity, Filtration Efficiency as per ISO 5011 and can test Air Cleaners upto 2500 m³/hr flow rate.
Oil Filter Tests – Clean Pressure Drop, Media Migration, Dust Holding capacity, Filtration Efficiency (gravimetric) at regular intervals, Collapse Pressure Drop, Relief Valve Opening Pressure etc. Lube Filter test rig designed for SAE - HS 806 testing of oil filters.
Fuel Filters - Fuel Filter testing designed for relevant SAE 905 specifications.
