How many factors we will consider when designing a SS filter housing?
What kind of information you are going to confirm with your client when you get inquiry for SS filter housings? As we know we need to confirm about the liquid source, application, working pressure, working temperature, flux rate, micron rating, material of filter housing first. Then we could come up with our design including details as numbers and size of the filter elements, housing cylinder diameter, micron rating, wall thickness, design pressure, closure type, Inlet/Outlet connection, surface finishing.
What factors will affect the cost of housings?
Housing cylinder diameter: the OD of the housing will be calculated automatically. And the OD will determine how many raw materials used for this housing production.
Wall thickness: similar with housing cylinder OD, will designed to meet the working pressure and flux rate. And the thickness of the raw materials also affects a lot for total cost.
Raw materials: for SS filter housings, we have different options available like SS304, SS316L, Carbon Steel, Duplex 2205, Titanium.
Surface finishing: Shot Blasting, Polishing, Sanitary Polishing, Painting, Coating
Closure type: Clamp, Swing Bolt, Spring lid
So how do we BF help to reduce SS filter housing cost for our customer? For example, for multi-cartridge filter housings, we BF have various options for our clients for different conditions.
Standard Type: High-quality raw materials and high standard craftsmanship for customized design and big projects. Inner guide rod is 60% of filter element length matching steel bowl & top spring
Standard-Eco Type: Inner guide rod is only 10cm, with stell bowl & top spring, but the closure Clamp is a bit different from standard type
BF2 (Common clamp open type – without steel bowl + spring, with inner plastic accessory)
BF3 (Flat bottom swing bolt open type -matching steel bowl + spring)
BF4 (Swing bolt open type with Leg – matching steel bowl + spring)
Max-ECO Type: Similar to Economic BF2, internal plastic spare parts may not as good as BF2, but it does not affect using. Internal no treatment, external with mechanical polishing. Customized not available.
Not only for multi-cartridge filter housings, but also for all kinds of SS filter housings, BF will always provide solution which will perfectly meet customers’ requirements, meanwhile with lowest cost.
For every filter housing we designed and delivered to our client, we will take all factors into consideration, and come up with the best design meets the requirements for working conditions at the lowest cost. The filter housing will keep running safely, but clients will pay at least as they need.
