Outer chamber for particle seperation
Centrifugal separation occurs in the filter's outer chamber by rotational flow and centrifugal force. Heavy solids accumulate at the bottom of the filter's outer chamber which may be purged manually or automatically.
Fail Safe lids with wing nuts
for easy closure without tools
Lids come standard with wing nuts for
easy operation. Individual studs
are provided for added security. No
single bolt v-clamp closures are used!
Note: Hex nuts are recommended
above 100 psi pressures,
tightened to 75 inch lbs. of
torque for best results.

Inner chamber for cartridge filtration
Liquid flows from the outer chamber into an inner chamber where the single cartridge is located. Here, the liquid is filtered, and subsequently flows out of the filter through the standpipe and outlet fitting.

Tangential entry
Liquid enters the filter tangentially to provide rotational flow and centrifugal force for particle seperation.

Rotational flow pattern
Continuously "fluffs" filter cake to increase dirt and debris holding capacity to extend filter life and time between cleaning.

Drain for manual or automatic purge
In heavy solids applications, manual or automatic valves may be usedd to purge solids from the outer chamber to extend filter life. (Valves not provided by Harmsco.) Tests demonstrate approximately half of the heavy solids, such as sand, separate prior to the filtration chamber at 50 GPM.

Hurricane cartridges are
cleanable and reusable in most applications and micron ratings.

304 electro polished stainless steel
Solid, stainless steel construction and electro polishing are standard for added resistance to corrosion. (Special coatings available for chemical resistance.)

Single "Jumbo" cartridge
Easy to install, remove, clean and replace!

Couplers for pressure gauges provided
1/4" FPT couplers are installed in inlet and outlet fittings for pressure gauges.
