Third Generation Standard Filter Housings

3G Standard Filter Housings are manufactured from a durable polypropylene or clear Styrene-Acrylonitrile (SAN). All are equipped with 3/4″ NPT inlet and outlet ports.

Reinforced polypropylene housings have excellent chemical resistance and are ideal for many residential, commercial and industrial applications. Clear sumps are manufactured from a clear, FDA compliant Styrene-Acrylonitrile (SAN). They offer on-site examination of the cartridge and have excellent chemical compatibility as well.

3G Standard Filter Housings are available in both 10″ and 20″ lengths and will accommodate a wide range of 2-1/4″ to 3-1/8″ diameter cartridges.
