What is the difference between capsule filter and cartridge filter?

2022-02-24 Eternalwater

Capsule filters combine a wide range of filter media, pore size rating and surface areas to satisfy numerous applications. Cartridge filter system offers a wide range of flow capacities and are normally used as polishing filter in almost all process industries.

The cartridge filter mainly consists of a connecting pipe, a cylinder, a filter basket, a flange, a flange cover, and fasteners. Installing on pipelines can remove large solid impurities in the fluid, enabling machinery and equipment (including compressors, pumps, etc.) and instruments to work and operate normally, achieving a stable process and ensuring safe production.

Operational principle

Working principle of cartridge filters (LTGSI, SII, SIII types): When liquid enters the filter basket through the cartridge, solid impurity particles are blocked in the filter basket, and clean fluid is discharged from the filter outlet through the filter basket. When cleaning is required, unscrew the screw plug at the bottom of the main pipe, drain the fluid, disassemble the flange cover, clean and reinstall it. Therefore, maintenance is extremely convenient.

Applicable scope

1. Weak corrosive materials in chemical and petrochemical production, such as water, oil products, ammonia, hydrocarbons, etc.
2. Corrosive materials in chemical production, such as caustic soda, soda ash, concentrated sulfuric acid, carbonic acid, aldehydes, etc.
3. Low temperature materials in refrigeration, such as liquid methane, liquid ammonia, liquid oxygen, and various refrigerants.
4. Materials with hygiene requirements in food and pharmaceutical production, such as beer, beverages, dairy products, syrups, etc.

Material information

Shell material: carbon steel, stainless steel (304, 304L, 316, 316L), fluorine lined, plastic (PP, PVC, etc.).
Material of coarse filter element: The filter frame and filter screen are made of stainless steel.
Sealing ring material: polytetrafluoroethylene.

Capsule Filter

capsule filter, also known as integrated filter, uses a foldable imported filter membrane with a large filtration surface area, suitable for filtration of larger volume solutions. The outer surface of this filter is made of polypropylene material, which does not contain adhesives or other chemicals, ensuring that it does not contaminate the sample. The filter has different pore sizes to choose from and can be sterilized under high pressure.
The product uses different filtering media based on the characteristics of the filtering object of the capsule filter. The following are several commonly used series:

1. RFPT uses hydrophobic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) filter membranes, suitable for filtering solvents and corrosive solutions, as well as filtering air and gas through ventilation ports.
2. The RFPP capsule filter uses hydrophilic polypropylene (PP) membrane, which is suitable as a pre filter for reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, ink filtration, etc. Suitable for filtering aqueous solutions and solvent samples.
3. The RFPN capsule filter uses nylon membrane, which has the characteristics of fast flow rate and low extractable level. And pre filtration media containing glass fibers can be selected to extend the service life of nylon membranes, suitable for filtration treatment of larger volume samples and difficult to filter samples.

Product features

1. 1/4 external thread interface, and various conversion joints are available for conversion.
2. capsule filters are suitable for filtering 1-20 liters of laboratory and various machine terminals.
3. The disposable capsule filter element structure does not require a filter cartridge device, reducing the risk of splashing and leakage compared to traditional filtering methods, and is easy to install.
4. capsule filters with different pore sizes can be combined as pre filtration and terminal filtration to meet extremely demanding filtration requirements

Application area

RFPP capsule filters are used as pre filters for reverse osmosis and ultrafiltration, as well as for the filtration of inks and dyes, and developer solutions.
The RFPT capsule filter is suitable for filtering solvents and corrosive solutions, as well as filtering air and gas through ventilation ports. Widely used in the optical storage industry for dye filtration in CD-R and DVD-R production, photoresist filtration in LCD production, and solvent and pharmaceutical filtration in chemical industry, biopharmaceuticals, food industry, laboratories, etc.
