Selecting a Size

These descriptions and flow charts can aid in size selection. Capacities given are for each of the vessels.

Pressure Drops for Housings and Basket Only

The graph below gives the clean pressure drop through the M8 housing with a basket installed without a filter bag.
 
Basket strainers and bag filters are usually selected so that the pressure drop does not exceed 2 psi, when they are clean. Higher pressure drops may be tolerated, when contaminant loading is low. Bag change occurs at 15 psid.

Follow these easy steps:

1. Using the desired pipe size and approximate flow rate from figure 1, determine the basic pressure drop.
2. Multiply the pressure drop obtained in step one by the viscosity correction factor found in figure 2. This is the adjusted (clean) pressure drop for all baskets without filter bags, in psi.
