M Series Microfilter Housings

Facet filter housings are specifically designed to remove solid particles such as rust, dirt, pipe scale, sand and metal from fuel. They are commonly located ahead of clay treaters and coalescer separators to protect and prolong cartridge life. A single pass through the filter allows clean product to flow downstream.

Facet filter housings will continuously remove solids from fuel when used with Facet standard single, double or triple-length FA, M OR CIF Series high efficiency filter cartridges. Housings are designed for easy servicing and low maintenance. All are built to ASME Code, Section VIII, with many standard and optional accessories and connections available to facilitate individual installation requirements. Facet filters provide a complete system to meet industry standards and levels of effluent purity required by commercial airlines, major oil companies and governments, worldwide.

M Series filter housings use any of Facet’s high efficiency filter cartridges. A single pass of product through the system removes solids such as rust, dirt, scale, granules and other particles commonly found in liquid process streams.

M Series filter housings are available in three styles and in several standard sizes to accommodate specific flow and filtration requirements. They are designed with no internal moving parts to provide easy service and reduced maintenance costs. Each housing is manufactured using quality materials and workmanship to give long-lasting, dependable service.

M Series filter housings can be fitted with either multiple single-length cartridges, stacked 1, 2 or 3 high or their double-length or triple-length equivalents

NOTES:
1. Cartridges are selected separately to fit specific application requirements.
2. Multiple stack cartridges should be replaced with one single-length equivalent. Example: 1M-214 = 1M-128 or 6M-314 = 6M-143, etc.
3. Consult factory for flow rates when using EI 1590 Qualified Elements.
All dimensions, weights and volumes are approximate and are for estimating purposes only.
