Materials of Construction

N/A The high strength qualities and rigidity of CPVC make the SSF Series suction filter systems extremely rugged, yet wear and impact resistant, and capable of handling the roughest of corrosive liquids and sensitive solutions at 200 ºF (93 ºC). Wetted parts are CPVC so there is no metal contact with liquid.

Effective Filtration

N/A Sethco suction filter systems are equipped with easily inserted. appropriately sized Sethco depth filter tubes. These are precision wound polypropylene fiber over a polypropylene perforated supporting core, forming hundreds of funnel shaped tunnels. Each layer of fiber serves as its own filter screen. The close winding pattern (density) determines the size of the particle retention. Filter tubes are available with solids handling retention values of 50 down to 0.5 micron. Sub-micron filter tubes are also available.

Depth filtration area over the entire thickness of the Sethco No. 5 filter tube is 2.0 sq. ft.; of the No. 10 filter tube is 3.5 sq. ft.; of the No. 20 filter tube is 7.0 sq. ft.; and of the No. 30 filter tube is 10.5 sq. ft. Simultaneous carbon treatment and filtration to 10 micron can be achieved by using Sethco carbon/filter tubes.


N/A Sethco "SSF" electric motors are all totally enclosed, fan cooled. U.L. recognized, CSA approved and continuous duty rated. The motors are protected by special corrosion resistant paints and insulated windings. In addition, they have a corrosion resistant drip cover. The motors are equipped with over-sized, double sealed ball bearings, and have a one-piece shaft to prevent impeller whip and assure long life.
All 1/6 horsepower and larger motors are equipped with a lip seal where the stainless steel shaft enters the motor to help prevent vapors and liquid from entering.
