    Top Quality Liquid Filtration Solutions

    Our Harmsco Swing Bolt filter housings offer large capacity water treatment that is perfect for commercial or industrial use. These systems are uniquely designed to separate dense solids prior to cartridge filtration for extended filter life, increased dirt holding capacity and reduced maintenance costs. Additionally, the patented up-flow design of these filters allows them to utilize 100% of the cartridge surface area, providing efficient filtration and longer filter runs. Built with stainless steel construction and an electro-polished finish, these heavy duty filter cartridge vessels and components will deliver a stable supply of water at a fast flow rate with high volume for all your most demanding commercial and industrial applications. .

    Superior Upflow Design

    Trapped air is automatically purged from the Swing Bolt filter vessel due to the principle of up-flow filtration which allows filtered water to exit the filter at the highest point as it is filtered. A secure top plate prevents cross contamination of filtered and unfiltered liquid. Pressure rated to 150 psi and hydrostatically tested for safety and materials quality, Hurricane swing bolt filter housings are suitable for commercial or industrial use anywhere in the world.

    Great application for:  
    • Municipal drinking water
    • Cooling tower filtration
    • Desalination pre-filtration
    • Surface water treatment rule (SWTR) I, II
    • Industrial waste water treatment
    • Reverse osmosis pre-filtration
    • Ground water remediation
    • Ground water under direct influence


    Why Should You Filter Your Water?

    Harmsco Swing BoltCool, clear water is the life force in manufacturing operations. It cools, cleans, and can be counted on to run pure and steady - unless it becomes contaminated with dirt and other pollutants, in which case it can gum up a system, increase the friction losses and induce erosion corrosion. Water contamination also wastes energy by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate to offset the lost capacity due to scaling. This can impede operations, lowering the thermal efficiency of the system and even impair the quality of the products being made.

    Water filtration is one of the most effective and least expensive ways to solve equipment fouling and scaling problems caused by dirty water. Heat exchangers, molds, pipes, tubing, sensors, monitors, and other parts become fouled when dirt particles in the water settle out on warm surfaces. Calcium and magnesium are the bonding elements that cement the dirt onto the equipment. Chemical analysis shows that the calcium and magnesium are less than 2%, while the rest is made up of airborne particles, rust, sand, biological organisms, and other contaminants. High concentrations of water pollutants can result in the need for costly repairs or replacement of the facility's mechanicals. Our up-flow commercial housings are designed to deliver unsurpassed filter performance which enables longer filter runs and reduced filtration costs to keep your equipment running efficiently.
