These filters are suitable for a variety of gas and liquid applications. The disposable bonded microfiber filter elements are extremely efficient as well as being low cost. They offer high flow rates with very low pressure drops. All products conform to industry standard sizes and grades and are completely interchangeable with other manufacturers housings and filter elements.
The comprehensive product range enables greater flexibility for customers because of the greater choice. The development of new products is customer driven, with our engineers working closely with OEM customers and end-users. Special housings and filter elements developed to meet specific customer requirements and specifications are available.
A global distributor network, that includes all of Europe and the USA, South East Asia, Australia and South Africa, offers unbeatable delivery times and service. Along with over 29 years of experience & expertise all standard products are kept in stock.
Disposable In-Line Filters
Headline Filters range of Disposable In-Line Filters consists of permanently welded housings with encapsulated filter elements. This makes them ideal for portable analysers and other analysis systems requiring a robust and easily replaceable filter. A choice of body materials makes them suitable for a wide range of chemical environments. The units on this page are designed for particulate removal applications. For coalescing and bypass filtration duties, the DIF-INxxC, DIF-LNxxC and DIF-LKxxC should be considered. Where running cost is more important than initial cost, plastic housings with replaceable elements should be considered - see pages 22-26. The ‘xx’ in the part number should be replaced with the grade required, e.g. DIF-N70, DIF-MN40.
Intermediate & Large Disposable In-Line Filters
Headline Intermediate and Large Disposable In-line Filters are available in two-port or three-port configurations for particulate and coalescing applications
respectively. Where running cost is more important than initial cost, plastic housings with replaceable elements should be considered Large DIF’s are also offered with threaded ports (1/4”NPT): simply add 1/4”NPT to the product code.
Disposable In-Line Adsorbers
Headline Disposable In-Line Adsorbers consist of nylon bodies filled with granular adsorption material with integral inlet and outlet filter pads. Four sizes are available, containing from 6cc up to 120cc of adsorbent. Flow rates are the same as for grade 50 elements in the same size bodies. However, with adsorption, more important considerations will be the volume of adsorbent and the contact time. A range of adsorbent materials is available, and these are detailed below.
Vapour Adsorption Cartridges
Headline vapour adsorption cartridges comprise inner and outer filter tubes with the space between filled with adsorbent. The cartridges are sealed with nylon end caps. Headline vapour adsorption cartridges are designed to fit all standard size filter housings to provide vapour adsorption over the full range of line pressures.
Flow rates are the same as for grade 50 elements in the same size bodies. However, with adsorption, more important considerations will be the volume of adsorbent and the contact time.
Stainless Steel 110 & 120 Series
Headline 110 & 120 series filter housings are constructed entirely from 316L stainless steel with viton seals. They are free from welds and comply with NACE MR-01-75. Specify 120 series housings for all general 1/8” and 1/4” line size applications. For applications where response time or space is critical, specify the 110 series. Where the flow rate is high or contamination is heavy, or where service intervals must be kept as long as possible, 130 and 140
series housings should be considered. For applications over 340 bar use the 110HP & 120HP series housings opposite.
These housings are also available with a PTFE seal, which requires a modified sealing design: simply add an S to the housing code, e.g. 122S. PTFE seals cannot be retrofitted into standard housings originally having viton seals. High temperature gaskets can only be fitted into S version housings.
