Chemical Filtration

In the typical chemical manufacturing plant, you will find filtration on many different applications. Common ones include filtration of compressed air and gases, filtration of make up water, final filtration of chemical product, and waste water filtration.


  • Chemical filtration demands compatibility with both housing materials and filter materials
  • Applications include ultra-pure water, high purity solvents, and high purity acids & bases
  • Highly acid chemicals might require PVA or PVDF housings and cartridges
  • Ultrapure chemicals, typically used in semiconductor and computer chip manufacturing, are less than 0.1 micron
  • Proper filtration of chemicals prevents interactions of unwanted solids when mixing
  • Proper training of operators can prevent spills and accidents
