Housing - Simplex Filters


Basket filters & strainers will permit the straining & filtering of a wide variety of fluids, to retain solids of almost any size. All baskets are easily removable & cleanable. Basket strainer elements can be offered in single cylinder, multi cylinder & pleated design depending upon requirement .They are constructed of filter housing, filter element supported with perforated cage, positive sealing arrangement to avoid any bypass & choice of end connections.

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.

Salient Features of Simplex Filters

  • Easy Maintenance
  • Can handle high flow
  • Efficient design for desired flow and low cost
  • All housings made from SS 316 L, SS 316 & SS304 are mirror polished to resist adhesion of dirt and scale
  • Carbon steel housings are Epoxy coated & finally painted with two coats of synthetic enamel
  • High temperature & high pressure design are available
  • Efficient design for Inlet/Outlet nozzles placed opposite at 180 Deg

Design Features of Simplex Filters

  • Precise gross Filtration area of inlet across section area for low pressure – drop
  • Strainers meet ASME B 16.5 and ASME B 16.34 standard as required
  • Blow out gasket proof design for effective gasket sealing (Nitrile, Viton, PTFE etc)
  • Our design team is capable to combat space constraints and have successfully designed of commissioned strainers having less foot prints area but desired flow rates
