Operation of Simplex Filters
Unfiltered liquid enters the basket housing and passes down through them. Solids are retained inside / outside of basket depending upon design and are removed when the unit is serviced.
Basket filters & strainers are normally supplied with nut/bolt arrangement at the top of filter element. This will ensure any type of bypassing & confirm the position of basket, even in case of reverse flow. Fluid bypass around the basket is prevented by an optional O'-Ring seal between the basket rim and the housing inside diameter.
