The Y filter is the most common and economical type of filter for permanent fluid or gas applications. Thanks to its compact construction, its light weight and its easy access for rapid cleaning, it is used for many generally standard system applications.
The full Y filter is a permanent filter type, inherently identical to the Y filter, but suitable for special applications. It is designed and machined from a single block of material, it is available in all standard materials (Carbon steel, Stainless Steel) and on specific request by the customer in non-standard materials (Duplex S31803, Super Duplex S32750, Inconel, Hastelloy, Cunifer, etc.), on the specific request of the customer.
Like all the other filters, the full Y filter can be depressurized with appropriate gas release or drainage devices, making it possible to remove the cap and extract the filter element.
The standard equipment includes a screen suitable for high pressures, which is easy to maintain and replace and capable of filtration of more than 200% of the inlet area.
OPEN AREA RATIO= 100 x Mesh Open Area x Screen Area / Inlet area (The calculations are based on the filtering percentage of the mesh’s surface area only).
