What factors do we need to consider when designing a SUS filter housing?

As the manufacturers, we should first confirm the information we need with our client when we get an inquiry. But what kinds of information do we need indeed? Those are the liquid source, application, operation condition, flow rate, the micron rating, and materials of the filter housing.

After gathering all this information, we could start our design, including all these details, such as numbers and size of the filter elements, housing cylinder diameter, micron rating, wall thickness, design pressure, closure type, inlet/outlet connection, and surface finishing.

What factors will affect the cost of housing?

Housing cylinder diameter: the OD of the housing will be calculated automatically. And the OD will determine how many raw materials are used for the production of the housing.

Wall thickness: similar to housing cylinder OD, it will design to meet the operating pressure and flow rate. And the thickness of the raw materials also affects heavily for the total cost.

Raw materials: for SUS filter housings, we have different available options for customers, such as SS304, SS316L, Carbon Steel, Duplex 2205, and Titanium.

Surface finishing: Shot Blasting, Polishing, Sanitary Polishing, Painting, Coating

Closure Type: Clamp, Swing Bolt, Spring lid
