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 filter separators to protect and prolong cartridge life. The product flows through the housing inlet chamber and up through the equalizer tube. The equalizer tube evenly distributes the product through each cartridge. A single pass through the filter allows clean product to flow downstream.
