Filter Housing

The performance characteristics of the filter cartridges used in filtration systems often dictate such systems’ effectiveness; however, by choosing the right filter housing, outcomes from filter cartridges can be optimized and improved. Therefore, choosing the right filter housing is also a point that cannot be ignored.

When choosing housings, it’s essential to take into account several factors, including the application temperature, chemical compatibility, system operating pressure, flow rate, and pipework requirements, as well as the housing’s location or environment.

Brother Filtration produces filter housings with options for the majority of applications, ranging from less expensive, more portable, and simple-to-use plastic housings that work with most types of liquids to more robust industrial stainless steel options for higher temperatures, wider end cap compatibility, and higher flow rates. We also offer high-flow housings for large-scale applications and specialized sanitary series for high-purity requirements.

The steps of choosing the right filter housing

Filter housings come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Selecting a proper filter housing will help you achieve better filtration performance.

Maximum pressure, maximum temperature and the chemical & physical composition of the liquids will determine the materials of construction of the filter housing, including the element and gaskets. Besides, you have to consider the contaminants, the maximum flow rate, and the standards you want to achieve.

The final decision will rely on how important each of these aspects is in the application in consideration. Of course, you can also take cost and convenience into account. Once you figure this out, you will be able to choose between a large filter and a small filter.

After you understand exactly what you want in a filter housing, you can easily find the suitable product in the Bother Filtration. If you are still not sure what you want or think you can’t find the right product, you can also feel free to ask the staff on our web page.

Filter Housing: The Ultimate FAQ Guide

The following are common frequently asked questions (FAQ) about filter housing, along with their brief answers.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationHow do Duplex and Simplex Filter Housings differ?

Duplex Filterhousing allows for continuous filtration with two filters, enabling one to be serviced while the other remains in operation. In contrast, Simplex Filterhousing operates with a single filter and requires system shutdown for maintenance or filter replacement. Duplex is suited for continuous critical operations, reducing downtime and operational costs compared to Simplex, which is typically used in smaller systems with occasional downtime tolerance.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationHow do High Pressure and Low Pressure Filter Housings differ?

High Pressure housing filters are built to withstand elevated pressures, making them ideal for demanding applications such as oil and gas industries. They are typically constructed from robust materials like stainless steel. In contrast, Low Pressure housing filters are designed for applications with lower pressure requirements, using lighter materials like UPVC or PPR plastics. These filtration housings provide cost-effective solutions for tasks such as water treatment and food processing where pressure levels are moderate.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationWhat types of surface finishes are available for filter housings?

There are several common surface finishes used for filter housings, including polished, electropolished, and painted finishes.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationWhat is a polished finish on a filter housing?

A polished finish involves buffing the surface of the filter housing to create a smooth, reflective surface. This finish is often used for aesthetic purposes and can be easier to clean.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationWhat is an electropolished finish on a filter housing?

Electropolishing is an electrochemical process that removes a thin layer of the metal, resulting in a smooth, corrosion-resistant surface. It is commonly used in applications where hygiene and cleanliness are critical, such as in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationAre there any painted finishes available for filter housings?

Yes, filter housings can also be coated with paint for added protection against corrosion and environmental factors. This is often used in industrial or outdoor settings.

Common Questions about brotherfiltrationWhat is a Filter Housing?

Filter housing refers to a container specifically engineered to house replaceable cartridges, elements, bags, or media used in filtration systems. These housings are designed to accommodate one or more filters, operating at various pressures to facilitate high flow rates. By utilizing filter housings, fluid filtration can be optimized for extended service life and enhanced effectiveness.
