Wound Filter Cartridges
Wound filter cartridges are economical, nominal rated depth filters. They are produced from a continuous fibre yarn spirally wound around a central support core.
The computer controlled winding pattern ensures precise, reliable and repeatable particle removal performance. Wound filters feature a graded density construction, enabling progressively smaller particles to be captured through the depth of the filter media. The result is a high dirt holding capacity filter which has a low pressure drop.
Wound cartridges are most commonly made from polypropylene yarn wound on to a polypropylene core, but for applications where chemical compatibility or operating temperature restricts the use of polypropylene, other fibres such as cotton, glass, polyester, nylon or polyphenylene sulphide (Ryton) can be offered wound on to a stainless steel core. We also offer the option of a glass reinforced polypropylene core which provides superior strength and permits higher operating temperatures (up to 100oC)

LV1 Stainless Steel Single Cartridge Housings
The LV1 series single cartridge vessels consist of an investment cast head with 1” BSP (F) inline connections and 1/8” BSP (F) vent, a quick release clamp, and a bowl with ¼” BSP (F) bottom drain. LV1 vessels are produced in four sizes to suit industry standard 10”, 20”, 30” and 40” nominal length filter cartridges. The universal head can be configured to suit double open ended, code 8 (222 o rings/fin) or code 3 (222 o rings / flat) cartridges.
Multi Round Stainless Steel Cartridge Housings
Multi round cartridge vessels feature a universal bottom cup to suit double open ended, code 8 (222 o rings/fin) or code 3 (222 o rings / flat) cartridges. Our vessel design therefore provides versatility – by simply exchanging the cartridge top sealing components, the vessel can be converted to suit either double open ended cartridges or to suit code 3 and 8 cartridges. For use with double open ended cartridges, vessels are provided with a cup and spring component which achieves both top sealing and cartridge core location, and a compression plate.
Plastic Cartridge Housings
Plastic Housings – For applications involving non-aggressive fluids, these are a low cost, small sized single cartridge housings to suit 10″ or 20″ cartridges. They consist of a polypropylene body and screw on lid which forms a leak proof seal by compression of an o ring. The body can either be opaque or clear. 1/2″ – 1 1/2″ BSP screwed inline connections are available as standard. An optional pressure release button is available on the inlet port. Available accessories include spanners and mounting brackets.
