With a robust housing made from polyxymethylene acetal (POM), the new in-line filters from Filtertek (www.filtertek.com) can withstand burst pressure of 100 psi. These filters are also bidirectional, which can provide more holding capacity.
According to Eugene Altwies, Technical Sales Engineer, these latest offerings come with three barbed port choices: ¼, 5/16, and 3/8 inches. But the potentials of applications are best reflected by the pore sizes, Altwies adds, which range from 20 to 250 microns.
Custom configurations are available for different usage or port configurations in quantities over 20,000. Retrofitting is also easy since these new robust filters have kept similar size and overall dimensions from previous versions.
