Stainless Steel Process Filter Housings

Our Gas and Liquid Process Filters protect equipment from sample impurities by removing solids and liquids from gases up to 99.999% efficiency at 0.01 micron. This series of filters is also ideal to use in liquid sample process applications by simply employing our pleated liquid elements, or stainless steel elements. A 1 micron efficiency can be reached in liquids with the aforementioned elements.

To satisfy the extreme wide range of requirements for process sample filters, we supply a complete line of filter elements in stainless steel, polypropylene, and other corrosion-resistant materials. A choice of high efficiency borosilicate microfiber filter elements, which are inert to most liquids and gases, are also offered.

Our 150 and 160 series of high-pressure 316L stainless steel filter housings offer exceptional value and performance. The threaded head to bowl connection with captured o-ring provides positive sealing even in very corrosive and demanding applications. The 1500 PSIG rating covers the majority of gas and liquid applications.

At the heart of our filter products is the filter element. Choosing the correct element insures proper results for your specific application:

Disposable Microfiber Elements

Disposable Microfiber Elements are most commonly used since they offer exceptional filtration, high flows with minimal pressure drops, and excellent chemical compatibility. These are ideal for use in sample conditioning, instrumentation, CNG, and Emission/Environmental service.

  • For Coalescing (liquid removal) and particle collection use our grade “CS”. We recommend starting with the 70CS which is rated at 95% efficient at 0.01 micron which provides outstanding filtration, at high flow rates.
  • For Particle removal only use grade “K”. We recommend starting with the 70K which is rated at 95% efficient at 0.01 micron which provides outstanding filtration, at high flow rates.
  • For Particulate removal above 300°F (150°C) use grade “S”.

Stainless Steel 5-Layer Mesh Elements

Stainless steel elements (SS) are designed for the filtration of heavily contaminated gas samples, CNG, and liquid streams since they are recleanable by back flushing or ultrasonic cleaning. Standard microns available: 0.5, 1, 3, 10, 25, 50, 100, and 200.

Sintered PTFE

Sintered PTFE elements are used where only pure PTFE may contact the sample. They should be used in our PTFE series of housings based on the stainless steel models. Model 122P, 122PG, 130P, 130PG, 132P, 132PG, 142P.

Standard microns available: 3,10, and 25.

Sintered Polyethylene (PEL)

Sintered polyethylene elements (PEL) are used only in non-corrosive applications to remove bulk contaminates. Standard micron sizes available: 10, 25, and 75.
