High-quality filter housings (sometimes referred to as filter vessels) are vital components of a filter system. They provide mechanical support for the filtration elements, such as filter cartridges, filter bags, strainer baskets and lenticular filters. The quality, design and condition of filter housings are as vital as the performance of the filter cartridges or filter bags, directly impacting the efficiency ratings that can be achieved. This is particularly important when working with filters with close to 100% efficiency ratings, as the investment made in high-quality filters can be reduced if compromises are made on the quality of filter housings.
Every Envirogen filter housing is designed and manufactured according to the requirements of the Pressure Equipment Directive (PED), with designs available for a wide variety of operating conditions. Our filter housings are available in carbon steel, stainless steel, plastic or bespoke custom filter housings materials for critical fluids.
Sanitary housings are also available for final filtration, steam filtration and clean-in-place (CIP) applications for the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and electronics industries. These filter housings have a hygienic design and are self-draining to minimise contamination risk, improve cleanability and corrosion resistance. On request, filter housings can be designed for installation in areas in danger of explosion, in accordance with the European Commission ATEX Directive.
