●Easy to lnstal. The convenient handle design significantly shorten the time to replace the filter cartridge, makingthe replacement of the filter cartridge simple and easy.

What is the Best Filter Media for High Flow Filters?

Polypropylene microfiber provides the best material for the construction of a high flow filter.

The medium has a broad range of chemical compatibility and can achieve very high particle removal efficiency.

You should manufacture the support layer using polypropylene.

Also, you should not include additives, binders, and silicone in the manufacture of high flow filters for food products.

When should you Replace a High Flow Filter ?

You should replace a hi flow filter cartridge when it reaches its maximum recommended service life or when it no longer effectively removes impurities from the water. Additionally, if you notice a decrease in water flow rate or a decline in water quality, it is an indication that the filter cartridge needs replacement. Regular maintenance and monitoring are crucial to ensure optimal performance and to prevent any compromise in the filtration efficiency of the high flow filter cartridge.

How can you Determine the ServiceLife of a High Flow Filter?

The service life of a filter is the period in which the high flow filter will remove contaminants before reaching full dirt holding capacity.

You must predetermine the dirt holding capacity of the filter at a given flow rate before you can determine the service life of a filter.

In some cases, the information is supplied together with the high flow filter cartridge.

Using this information, consult the test protocol graphs provided along with the filter to determine how long it will last.

However, the performance and period of service will vary from one application to the other depending on the fluid type and nature of contaminants.

How do you Choose High Flow Cartridge Filter Housing?

The high flow filter housing is an integral part of the filtration system, and poor selection will significantly affect the efficiency of your filtration.

When selecting the housing, take the following considerations into account.

Design of the Filter 

Different designs of housing have different abilities to house a different number of filter cartridges.

Similarly, specific designs are also suited for particular applications that have special filtration requirements.

For example, some filter housing designs have devices that allow for automatic cleaning.

Operating Pressure and Temperature

 Ensure that you select a housing design that can withstand the maximum filtration pressure of your system.

The design pressure is influenced by the operating temperature hence ensure that you select housing with an appropriate combination.

Selecting a filter with a higher or lower working temperature will also reduce the efficiency of the filtration process.

Construction Material 

Even though you can select several materials for the construction of a high flow filter element, the most commonly used are stainless steel and carbon steel.

You can choose different classes of these materials.

The choice of material will depend on the application requirement and operating environment of the filter.

Cover Type

You can select between swing bolt-hinged, clamp, or davit arm cover covers for your filters.

Design Orientation 

The housing configuration can either be vertical or horizontal

Choose the most appropriate for your process.

Flow Rate

Different models of high flow filters have different maximum flow rates.

Ensure that the housing model and design you choose are compatible with the system flow rates

Similarly, the flow pattern also varies from one model to the other.

Designs that filter from outside to inside are simple to use and operate

Alternatively, you can also select a design that filters from inside to outside.

However, this design requires a cartridge sealing using a large support plate.

Housing Size/Dimension

The size of the housing depends on the flow rate and type of the filter element.

If the contamination level is high, then a bigger house is required to host multiple cartridges or a single cartridge with large dirt holding capacity.

Inlet/Outlet Connection Sizes and Position

You should ensure that the size of the inlet and outlet ports of the filter corresponds to the piping system of your application.

The positioning of ports will also facilitate a smooth connection to the system application.

What are the High Flow Filter Element Quality Standards?

High flow filter elements adhere to several quality standards to ensure their effectiveness and reliability. These standards include filtration efficiency, pressure drop limits, and structural integrity. They are tested and certified to meet industry-specific requirements, such as NSF/ANSI standards for drinking water applications or ISO standards for industrial filtration. Compliance with these standards ensures that high flow filters meet rigorous quality benchmarks and deliver consistent performance in removing impurities from water.

What should you consider when buying high flow filters?

Optimal performance of high flow filters will be influenced by numerous factors that you must carefully consider before placing your order.

They include:

Material and contaminants Characteristic 

Understanding the size and types of particle contaminants will enable you to choose a high flow filter with the correct micron rating.

The right micron rating will ensure that you achieve the desired level of filtration.

In industries like food, beverage, and pharmaceuticals, the filter must be able to remove all undesired contaminants to avoid unnecessary losses.

Process Fluid Properties  

You should familiarize yourself with the chemical properties of the process liquid or gas you intend to filter.

Different fluids contain or produce various chemicals that may affect the integrity and performance of your filters.

The choice of construction material will highly depend on the fluid properties.

Corrosive and saline fluid require that r.

Flow Rates

Different filter models have different optimum flow rates beyond which the filter will cause a lag in the process of fluid flow and extreme pressure drop.

Ensure that you match the filtration needs of your application to the specifications of a filter before purchase.

You should also consider the minimum flow rate of the filter you clean the filter using backwash.

Operating Pressure

Select a filter whose operating pressure to coincide with that of your filtration process.

Each type and model of filter has a different rating of operating pressure, and hence accurate selection for maximum pressure is mandatory

Operating Temperature

You should know the working temperature of the process fluid before choosing a filter media.

Different media have a maximum temperature beyond which the elements will collapse.

For example, the most used medium made from polypropylene will not withstand temperatures beyond 10°c in most cases.

Environmental and Operator Health

Properties of contaminants and process fluid influence this condition.

Whereas some filtration systems have acceptable levels of exposure, both to the operator and environment, some processes do not.

In the case of hazardous compounds, ensure that the media you select will meet the standards of exposure provided for under safety regulation.

Operation Cost

The operation cost of high flow filters will vary from one design or model of a filter to the other.

You should consider the cost of initial purchase, labor, and downtime for the replacement of elements and waste disposal costs.

What Fluid compatibility conditionsfor High Flow Filters?

Chemical compatibility of a filter is the harmonious correlation between the materials used to construct the housing and the filter elements.

You must ensure that your process fluid is chemically compatible with filter construction materials to minimize risks of failure during filtration.

Also, you should also consider whether the filter is also compatible with the contaminants.

The solvents can chemically attack the screen resulting in filter degradation and release of pollutants into the system.

Some contaminant doesn't degrade the elements but alters the pore sizes and function of the filter by getting absorbed into the media fibers.

Chemical compatibility of high flow filters will be affected by temperature, pressure, chemical concentration, and the length of exposure time.

These factors will affect the filtration process, either individually or in combination.

You should test the effects of any chemical additive, acid, base,and PH on the filter before embarking on full-scale filtration.

Some high flow filters made using polypropylene has shown compatibility to the following chemicals at different concentrations and temperature range.

●Acetic acid

●Hydrogen peroxide


●Methyl ethyl ketone

●Ammonium hydroxide


●Mineral oil

●Sulfuric acid

●Ethylene glycol

●Nitric acid

●Potassium hydroxide


●Sodium hydroxide andSodium carbonate

Can you clean a high flow filter?

Yes, water cartridge filters are cleanable.You can either opt for a manual cleaning or automatic cleanable filter.

Manual Cleaning

Ensure that you shut down the system to allow the elements to cool before opening the filters.

Stop fluid flow using the shut off valve.

Remove the filter elements and scrub them using a brush or other compatible liquid to removed dirt.

Air-dry the elements before placing it back into the filter.

Alternatively, you can use ultrasonic cleaning or back washing with pressurized water/compressed gas.

Automatic Cleaning 

Automatic cleaning filters initiate self-cleaning when the pressure drop reaches a certain predetermined level.

Self-cleaning filters use different techniques to dislodge dirt off the elements.

In some screens, the dirty cartridges rotate and rub itself against the scrapper, which removes the particles.

The dislodge dirt is collected at the bottom of the filter in a collector

Self-cleaning filters can clean continuously without having to stop the filtration process and, therefore, suitable for operations that cannot stop.

Greater dirt holding capacity of High Flow Filters

The unique design of the pleated filters in a high flow filtration system  catch and hold more dirt and contaminants than their slower flow counterparts. This is a significant benefit for businesses because the filters will not need to be removed for replacement or cleaning as often. In addition, the larger capacity for dirt will result in less filter replacement overall, which should lower long term costs of using the high flow systems.

You definitely understand the significance of a high-flow filtration system if your plant requires filtering significant amounts of industrial water.  Therefore it is often said that High Flow Filter Cartridges are the Key to Maximizing Efficiency in Water Treatment Systems.

Why is high flow filtration the best choice for you?

It should go without saying that high-flow filtration has a greater carrying capacity and can handle more liquids than a conventional basic filtration system. The pleats on the cartridge, which are made of synthetic fiber or polypropylene, can effectively remove impurities from the liquid in a shorter period of time.This pleated cartridge with unique design filters and carries more impurities and contaminants. This is an overwhelming advantage for consumers because,with such characteristics, cartridges do not need to be cleaned and replaced as often. In a way, this will greatly increase productivity.
