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.
Permanent filter, straight line, suitable for filtering fluids in either the liquid state (water, seawater, petroleum and its derivatives) or the gaseous state (gas, air, chemical products) through a perforated plate filter element placed perpendicular to the direction of flow.
Obtained from a welded Y-joint, it ensures a large surface area for flow and thus offers a high filtration capacity with a low loss of capacity even at high speeds.
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).
