Sanitary Filters


DX Series Sanitary Filter Housings
The DX series filter housings are designed for critical and sterile filtration applications. Manufactured to strict quality standards and from high quality materials, the DX series filter housings meet the exacting requirements of the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, food & beverage and microelectronics industries. DX series filter housings are designed for liquid or gas service and can easily be cleaned-in-place (CIP), steamed-inplace (SIP), or hot water sanitized. The 316L stainless steel T-line DX series accepts one code 7 style filter element (double 226 o-rings with bayonet locking tabs with a spear top) in 10″, 20″, or 30″ length. All DX series filter housings are equipped with 1/2″ sanitary vent and drain ports; vent and drain valves are available as optional accessories. The DX series filter housing is also equipped with a 1 1/2″ sanitary gauge port. The DX filter housings are 1” sanitary TC connection. DX series filter housings offer the high quality electropolished surface finish for ease of cleaning. Wetted surfaces are further electropolished to a 0.4 micron inch Ra surface finish to help limit bacterial and particulate adhesion. A bayonet cartridge interlock design allows easy cleaning, and a positive locking retention mechanism secures the filter cartridge even during back pressure surges. A 316L stainless steel clamp secures the housing base and dome permitting rapid filter change-outs. Each filter housing is hydrostatically tested to provide long term efficient operation even in demanding environments. All housings are supplied with silicone gaskets that comply with CFR 21 requirements for direct food and drug contact.
