PTFE Membrane Housings

PTFE-membrane flow showing inlet-outlet and bypass

One of our most innovative filtration solutions, Classic Filters’ hydrophobic PTFE membranes and housings are perfectly suited for separating liquid from gas molecules, allowing a pure gas sample to be produced for the protection of analysers and other instruments.

A porous PTFE membrane is supported by a sintered, porous stainless steel disc on the outlet side to increase the strength of the membrane and give a higher differential pressure. Two liquid phases can also be separated if required.

Classic Filters now also offers a new hydrophobic/oleophobic membrane, designed  to remove both water and oils from a gas stream.

PTFE-membrane housings and combination housings with membrane and coalescing filter element PTFE Membrane Housings

We offer carefully manufactured housings designed to best utilise the inherent hydrophobic properties of a PTFE membrane. This prevents 100% of liquid molecules from flowing through the membrane, allowing only gas molecules to pass. Any liquid removed flows through to a drain port, which can also be used as a bypass function for the main flow.

Classic Filters offers dozens of housings types, ensuring we deliver the best solution for your application. If we don’t have a suitable housing in stock, we can manufacture a housing to order.

Combination Housing with PTFE-Membrane and Coalescing Filter Element

The service-life of the PTFE membrane can be extended significantly when used in conjunction with a filter element. This combination allows the filter element to remove the bulk of the liquid and particulates before it reaches the membrane.
