It is exciting and inspired that Brother Filtration made cooperation with a big water service company in 2022, we had the chance to take part in this water service company’s 2-3 projects. Before we offered filtration solutions for this big water service company, we did a comprehensive analysis of its existing filtration systems.
They have already used the FRP high-flow module in their new projects, especially for the compact container, which only has limited space. For their, existing filtration system, they started to change all the conventional filter cartridges. The operator for this project complained to us about the time for changing the filter cartridges.
Also, it is a common problem in the USA, they need to pay high labor costs compared with China. However, we need to admit that all those problems would be solved by the development of technology and more advanced filtration equipment.
Except for what we mentioned above, the longer change time and high labor costs, we still need to take a look at the whole project in detail.
Raw water: seawater
Temp: ambien temp 20-30℃

Though IDE wants to lower its costs and maintenance time, they also want to keep the quality of the whole filtration system. The FRP-X provided by Brother Filtration has a lower price than FRP-FLOW.
They worry about the quality of the more affordable FRP-X. Brother Filtration totally understood what our customers think, and we will prove the quality by the actual operating performance.
The first problem we want to explain is the price. Why FRP-X is so affordable? The main reason is the structure. For the normal project, the pressure needs to reach 5-6 bar, which FRP-X can absolutely handle. Because Brother Filtration FRP-X is strong and good enough.
To have a more clear, we made a comparison below.
MAX-A high-flow cartridge filter
wall thickness as point 1 indicated in the above picture
FRP-X wall is straight type.
FRP-Flow outlet wall is thicker.
Due to FRP-Flow’s wall structure, it can be resistant to higher pressure up to 20bar. However, it doesn’t mean that FRP-X is not able to match project pressure. For normal operating pressure of 150psi(10bar), FRP-X is strong enough to handle this operating condition. At the same time, FRP-X can help customers to reduce initial costs to a great extent.
Open closure type
FRP-X: clamp type
FRP-FLOW: swing nuts
FRP-FLOW high-flow cartridge filter can be customized, and more flexible.
The inlet/ outlet location can be customized for much higher pressure performance.
Inlet/outlet material can be
In conclusion, FRP-X has many competitive abilities to handle high-flow filtration with lower costs and less labor. It can effectively reduce costs and maintenance time for customers. With its compact design, it can be applied to limited space areas.
Brother Filtration also manufactures many high-flow filter cartridges for high-flow needs, if you have an interest in our high-flow filtration equipment, please feel free to contact us directly.
The ocean occupies most of our planet, and desalination has been used more and more widely over the past 20 years. By using reverse osmosis systems, we help desalination plants to do their job and further help more plants to solve the problem of water shortage.
Every chemical plant is inseparable from industrial water filtration systems. Whether it is the purification and filtration of raw materials and final products or the treatment of industrial wastewater and unwanted chemicals generated during the production process, industrial filtration is a top priority.
Most petrochemical industry products are stored in large containers, such as diesel, gasoline, and fuel oil. This type of storage is highly likely to lead to impurities in the products and affect the product quality. Our mission is to offer efficient and reliable filtration systems for the petrochemical industry so that purification is not a big challenge.
The extremely rapid growth of the pharmaceutical industry has created a greater demand for industrial filtration. Whether it’s upstream cell fermentation, purification, or filtration, we can provide the solution. In addition, We are committed to filtration and separation, protecting the reliability and safety of production equipment.
The food and beverage industry is closely related to the daily life and health of each of us. Therefore, we must meet higher standards to filter these products. As your experts, we help you improve product quality, reduce production costs, and safeguard everyone’s health.
Nature itself has the ability to treat wastewater. But with the huge increase in human production and living activities, it can no longer handle such large amounts of wastewater. We, as industrial treatment producers, help nature to share the burden of wastewater treatment.
Industrial wastewater from mining activities contains high volumes of heavy metals, particulates, and residual chemicals. Wastewater must be purified and filtered in order not to pollute our water resources. We help your plant meet wastewater discharge standards.
In order to extract oil more efficiently and conveniently, large amounts of water must be injected underground to ensure water pressure. And since precious water resources are limited, our technology allows wastewater to be purified so that it can be reused.
When it comes to marine filtration, the first scene that appears in people’s is usually the sea or seawater. But marine filtration is more than seawater. A crucial resource on this planet is seawater. Large amounts of seawater are needed to generate fresh water for drinking and irrigation in locations with a lack of fresh water, just as ships sailing on the ocean need a lot of it for ballast water to keep the ship balanced. Marine filtration is not only about the seawater, but also the transported seawater. The ballast water is a kind of transportation of water. The cargo ships load the seawater from one place and discharge it at another port. The seawater traveled with the cargo ship in ballast tanks. This is the point many people will be indifferent about, the filtration before the discharge of the ballast water. People are familiar that we can not drink seawater directly, because it contains large quantities of salt and contaminants. But why do we need filtration for ballast water? it is just the seawater discharge into seawater. With the development of the environmental protection concept and the perfection of the law, we are constrained to filter the ballast…
The science and practice of extracting metals or metal compounds from minerals and transforming them into metallic materials with specific qualities using a variety of processing techniques is known as metallurgy. With the development of technology and the metallurgy industry, the filtration market in this area grows quickly annually. The need for filtration is increasing and the filter equipment is also developing. In the metallurgy industry, the rolling mill coolant and lubricate system need a filtration system. Equipment coolant and lubricating oil need to be filtered to remove contaminants and accomplish recycling in the metallurgical process in order to save input costs.
