KEY FEATURES OF THE HYDRODEX FILTER
Hydrodex future-proof premium line of FRP cartridge filter housing are made of the industry’s top-rated materials. Design meet and even exceed the ASME Code Section X, for a maintenance free, rigid and everlasting product.
A. FEATURES AND BENEFITS
|Manufactured with corrosion and tough chemical resistant materials.||• Long, effective service life.
• No need for costly pipe coating, wrapping, lining, painting, or use of polyethylene wraps.
• Low maintenance costs.
• Hydraulic characteristics essentially remain unchanged over time.
|Light weight. FRP is 1/4 the weight of ductile iron and 1/10 of concrete pipe.||• Easy to install.
• Low delivery and shipping costs. No need for expensive handling equipment.
|Extremely smooth bore.||• Low friction loss means less pumping energy needed.|
|Pressure Rating||• Internal pressure – maximum allowable working pressure is 150 PSI, filters are hydrostatically tested at 300 PSI.|
|Operating pH Range||• Solutions having a pH range from 2 to 13 with solutions of inorganic salts or chemistries deemed acceptable to Hydrodex cartridge filter.|
Hydrodex filter housing also meet the world’s most renowned codes and standards.

Quality Control is what makes a company stand out and have an edge over others. Our FRP pipe testing include thorough checks for all raw materials and finished products against strict written standards. This is in addition to the final product – cartridge filter – quality control inspection, leakage and hydrostatic test.
