Simplex Basket Fitlers

Simplex Basket Filters are normally used for batch operations where the liquid flow may be interrupted periodically for cleaning purpose or other maintenance.

Simplex Basket Filters and Strainers are normally designed with cylindrical or square housing construction having cylindrical  single element or concentric element or can have multi elements in one housing depending upon the filtration area. Normally Simplex Basket Filters have higher free flow area (filtration area) as compared to Y, T Type Strainers or Temporary Strainers. Hence they can be used for longer duration of time without cleaning the filter element than other abovementioned Strainers or Filters.
