FW - General Industrial Cartridge Filter Housing Housing

The FW Series Cartridge Filter Housing for general industrial applications removes particulates from liquid streams, often as a pre-filter ahead of finer particle separation equipment. The standard design is based upon the single or double open-ended cartridge, but can be adapted to many filter cartridge designs, configurations and sizes. The FW is ideal in applications across a wide range of processing industries, including food and beverage, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor, chemical plants, water treatment and remediation.
