Typical vertical filter Typical vertical filter Typical vertical filter
Typical vertical filter equipped with 36" long filter tubes and swing-bolt closure. Grid assembly welded to inside of top head rests on top of tubes to prevent their becoming unsealed.

To determine the proper filter model for a given total flow rate, viscosity and initial pressure drop (usually 2-3 psi) enter the graph and find the allowable flow rate per tube. The total flow divided by the allowable flow per tube gives the total number of tubes required. Knowing the number of tubes required permits entering the chart and finding the proper filter model.
