The Filson basket filter element, also called a basket filter cartridge, is a coarse filtration accessory designed for a range of flow rates (up to 3600m3/hr) and a filtration rating of 5µm to 2000µm. It is specifically designed to capture large solids or contaminants from the pipe systems. It therefore improves efficiency and reduces maintenance cost of components downstream such as pumps, valves or return flow systems.
The Filson basket filter elements are made from stainless steel perforated sheets, woven wire mesh, sintered wire mesh and wedge wire screens. It is used in many applications such as the food, beverage, power plant, water treatment, petrochemical and oil & gas industries, among others.
