Sanitary Housing

Efficiency in the most demanding industrial applications.

The most effective answers to the most demanding requirements of present-day manufacturing processes, with a special focus on chemical processes. Ionex industrial filter housings are made from AISI 304 or 316 stainless steel, are chemically compatible with industrial fluids, may contain from 1 to 36 DOE (Double Open End) type filter cartridges with rated heights of 10, 20 and 30 inches; on request they are available with O-ring 2-226 end cap configuration. Highly compact and sturdy, they are able to withstand heavy duty conditions, frequent opening and closing cycles, aggressive chemical wash processes. Their efficiency is also based on innovative functional design, available in two specific versions: single cartridge housings suitable for wall-mounting via ad hoc brackets, and multi-cartridge housings – from the MIDI and BIG series – having three supporting legs and equipped with steel cartridge positioning disks.

TECHNICAL SHEET Sanitary Housing

Advanced type complete models

Made entirely of stainless steel, Ionex filter housings are supplied in a complete version (ADV) which includes two butterfly valves, one on the inlet and one on the outlet, a sanitary valve for sampling the liquid being filtered, and a ball valve for dome drainage.

Filter units

On request, Ionex filter units may be mounted on a load-bearing frame made from 50x50mm square-section tubular steel, fitted with stainless steel and nylon feet or with casters, so as to enable the system to be moved easily.

Butterfly valves

The latest solutions that technology can offer.

Ionex butterfly valves are obtained from hot forged parts, machined over their entire surface, and with moving parts thoroughly ground to ensure maximum precision finishes for sanitary applications. Choice of DIN 11851, CLAMP or DIN 2633 connections.

The levers, also made from stainless steel, come with 7 predetermined opening positions.

Sanitary sampling taps

The lowermost part of the housing is fitted with a sanitary grade sampling tap. An additional ball valve ensures the rapid drainage of the entire housing.

Manometer assembly

The top of the dome is equipped with an assembly consisting of

  • a 0-6 bar manometer in 316 stainless steel
  • a vent needle valve, in 316 stainless steel, with hose adaptor
  • a gas inlet valve, in 316 stainless steel, with hose adaptor
  • a sight glass in 316 stainless steel

The manometer assembly is supplied with a CLAMP connection


A by-pass can be had as an option on all (ADV) models: it consists of a sanitary stainless steel structure fitted with two butterfly shut off valves. Normally, these components come with a clamp or a DIN 11851 connector.

Other types of by-pass can be supplied to meet specific design requirements or customer requests.
