The multi-round vessels effectively remove dirt, pipe scale, and other contaminants from process liquids such as water, chemical and petroleum products. Quality construction and design assure protection for all down-stream equipment.

VESSEL CONSTRUCTION: The multi-round vessels are designed for operating up to 10 bar (150 psi) at  149° C (300° F). The housing design provides a large sump area at the bottom of the basket for particulate accumulation. This design utilizes the filter more efficiently and prolongs the element life.

The 316 SS baskets seal onto a buna o-ring to eliminate particulate bypass between the basket and seat. Optional mesh-lined strainer baskets and o-rings are available.

A vent in the housing lid and a drain port in the housing speed evacuation and filling. Gauge ports are located on the body of the housing to install gauges for monitoring the differential pressure across the bag. Permanently piped housings are opened with simple tools without disturbing the piping. Swing bolts with eye-nuts allow easy opening and closing of the swing-lid. No need to remove any hardware.

As a standard finish, all vessels are blast cleaned and painted inside and out with a 2-part epoxy. Stainless steel vessels are supplied with a satin finish.
