Water Filter Housing are a fundamental element in cartridge water filters: the housing or cartridge holder keeps the filter in place and helps guide the water through it. Most cartridge housings are made of polycarbonate and / or polypropylene, making them very strong and durable as well as meeting all NSF standards.
Standard sizes of filter housing and cartridges
They are manufactured in one of several standard sizes:
2.5 ″ x 10 ″ Used in home or low flow purifiers
2.5 ″ x 20 ″ Used in commercial and home reverse osmosis.
4.5 ″ x 10 ″ BB or Bigblue robust home or commercial filter holder
4.5 ″ x 20 ″ BB 20 double height for commercial and semi industrial use
Although there are specialty filters and manufacturer filters to suit you, most water filter housings are standard worldwide.
You can choose any standard filter cartridge for your system. As long as you select the correct size portafilter. A 2.5 ″ x 9.75 ″ cartridge that fits perfectly in a 2.5 ″ x10 ″ housing or filter holder
Components of a complete filter.
Standard water filter housing are made up of three parts:
The filter holder cover, the filter holder cup and the filter cartridge.
The cup is a plastic container that is made to hold the cartridge in place and to pass water through it.
The filter cap allows the water to flow out of the inlet and into the glass properly. Inside the bowl, you can put any cartridge of your measure, such as sediment or activated carbon filters. Some housings are sold with cartridges included.
Inside the bottom of the jar, you will find a small sealing ring, to hold the bottom of the cartridge in place and seal it. A similar ring sits on the bottom of the cap to keep the top of the cartridge in place, as well as being the seal that directs the flow of water to pass through the cartridge.
Cartridge housing come in various colors: white, blue, red, and clear, and the color often indicates what they are used for. Red, for example, may indicate that the filter is designed for hot water filtration. Filter caps are typically black or white.
Filters with double and triple housing
If you need multiple filters in series, whether they have different micron ratings, for finer filtration, or contain different types of filters to further purify the water, you can use a bracket and connectors or nipples to make a double or triple filter. Making a filter with multiple stages is very simple, the quality of the water that we need will determine the number of filters that we must use and it will help us to guarantee that the water moves through the filters in the order that we want.
