A filter housing is a casing around a filter cartridge or bag in a liquid or gas stream.
Rosedale filter housings come in many sizes and styles, and can serve as a bag filter housing, cartridge filter or basket strainer. The filter housings are opened without special tools, and the element is easily cleaned or replaced.
Factors to Consider in Filter Housings
Because there are many sizes and styles of bag filter housings, selecting the best filter for your filtration system is important. In order to decide what kind of filter is suitable for your application, you need to know a few pieces of information.
Some criteria to consider when choosing the correct filter housing include:
- Maximum pressure and temperature
- Chemical and physical composition
- Type of duty
- What contaminants need removal
- Maximum flow rate
- Line size and type
- Level of filtration required
- Cost, response time, service life, and interval requirements
Each of these properties help to narrow the kind of filter that is ideal for your needs. Knowing the maximum pressure and temperature, as well as the chemical and physical composition of the sample allows you to determine the material of the filter housing.
Knowing the type of duty will help you decide the ideal configuration for the housing.
The amount of contaminants to be removed and the level of filtration required determine the proper pore size of the filter element. Selecting the best size for your filter housing requires balancing your mechanical requirements with what you’re willing to spend. If you need long service intervals, for example, you would need a larger filter. This would require buying a more expensive filter than the smallest size.
