Below are the main series we have to replace the top brands

High flow filter, known as high flow water filter element, high flow filter element, high flow pleated filter element, etc.

It usually adopts PP inner core and outer skeletons, and the filter layer is made of protective mesh, non-woven fabrics, filter membranes, and other materials. The composition can be adapted to various water treatment conditions.

The larger diameter design of the high flow filter cartridge increases the effective filtration surface, which can greatly reduce the number of filter cartridges and reduce the size of the housing.

Designed for a variety of filter housings, these filter housings can hold 1 to 37 filter cartridges, which can be used for different flow requirements. Besides the outstanding advantages and abilities, those high flow filter cartridges have a more competitive price when compared to other brands.

Structure characteristics of high flow filter cartridges

Structure characteristics of high flow filter cartridges
  • Higher operatinge The combination of surface filtration and depth filtration can greatly reduce the number of filter cartridges compared with conventional way
  • Significantly reduce the size of the filter housing, and decrease the frequency of filter cartridge replacements and unnecessary losses during use, and improve efficiency.
  • Longer service life and lower production costs—The pleated design increases the filter surface and makes the pressure drop significantly lower than the traditional filter cartridge;
  • Easy to Install. The convenient handle design significantly shorten the time to replace the filter cartridge, making the replacement of the filter cartridge simple and easy.

For the design of high flow filter housing

An appropriate design for high flow filter housing can effectively reduce the installation footprint. Here, in Brother Filtration, two different types of high flow filter housing are provided for you.

The horizontal high flow FRP housing can simplify the operation, while the vertical high flow FRP filter housing can minimize the footprint of the system.

high flow FRP skid

More than these, the combination of filter housing for high flow filter cartridge is also available for customer, which is the high flow FRP skid. By using this skid, all the benefits of high flow filter can be enlarged.

Thanks to the flow rate up to 500gpm in a single filter cartridge, fewer components are required. When combined in the skid, more advantages can have.
