The Barton Firtop Basket Filter comprises of a cast vertical
housing with integral line flanges manufacture to the requirements
of PED/97/23/EC. Housed in the Basket Filter is a single stainless
steel Filter Basket which is manufactured from perforated plate
and lined with mesh to provide the level of filtration required.
The design of the Basket Filter has a greater filtration area than
many of our competitors standard units, thus inducing exceptionally
low pressure losses and providing high dirt holding capacity.
To gain access to the internals of the filter a davit assembly is
available to remove the cover utilising a hydraulic jack which makes
the whole process relatively routine. The Filter Basket utilises
'positive location' within the housing which helps prevent damage
caused by vibration or oscillation when used in high flow gas service.
This also guarantees full interchangeability of spares.
As an optional extra, a safety interlock closure is also available to
ensure that the cover cannot be opened whilst under pressure –
this is recommended for hazardous and Gas service.
