Filter elements

Filter elements are products with many design forms. For more than 30 years, WestCoast Technique has helped companies to develop and manufacture filter elements - both standard products and custom-made solutions. Our product range and production options have a wide range with a lot of possibilities.

Filter elements are made in a wide range of different designs, materials and flow constructions.

  • Conical
  • Cylindrical
  • Wedge wires and bow screens
  • Filter and wire baskets
  • Bag filters and filter housings
  • Extruder filters

Filter elements are widely used in the industry, in machinery and equipment. Filter elements come in many different shapes, sizes, designs and materials and are always adapted to the task:

A common aspect of filter elements is that the product typically is a part of a larger process. The filter insert therefore needs to be constructed of one or more parts adapted to the production process, the pipe, the plant or the building.

The task is to ensure that the chosen construction gives the desired result, both in terms of effect, strength and price. It can be a bit of a challenge, but one we like to take part in, so give us a call on 76 12 33 66 or send an email with your problem to, and let's talk about the many options.

Filter elements are basically made up of 2 parts. A filter medium to perform the actual filtering. And a frame / support that will make it possible to attach the filter and ensure that it can withstand the task.

To find the right filter medium, one must know the size of the fractions to be filtered from. I.e.. what should be able to pass the filter and what should the filter block. Additionally, the capacity needs to be considered, i.e. how high is the flow in regards to solid fractions and liquid. The need for capacity is important to know in order to be able to calculate and interpret the correct strength ratio in the construction.

Filter elements are typically built into a frame so that the filter can be easily inserted into production. The frame is designed to fit the machinery / system. The frame can consist of flanges, brackets and supports that ensure that e.g. a thin filter medium does not collapse or tear.

In addition, the filter element must be manufactured to be able to withstand the specific conditions such as e.g.

  • Acid exposure
  • Temperature level and variations
  • Pressure / vacuum
  • Instability in the flow
  • Etc.

In many cases, the filter is also limited by external conditions such as the physical space available.

When we receive a request for filter elements, we will always ask for a description of the total flow, the nature of the liquid, the size of the particles to be sorted out and the amount, after which we can come up with some suggestions for solutions that can fit your need.

We can also offer replacements for existing solutions - based on drawings or a sample.

Filter elements are made in a wide range of materials, where the optimal solution depends on the system they are to be part of.

  • Stainless steel (AISI 304)
  • Corrosion resistant steel (AISI 316)
  • Hot dip galvanized steel
  • Plain steel
  • Hastalloy
  • Monel
  • Inconel
  • Duplex
  • Super Duplex
  • Synthetic mesh

A framework agreement is a collective order of filters that covers the need for a longer period. For example, if your production uses 12 or 10,000 filters a year, you can order the yearly need at once. We subsequently produce the units as soon as possible and put them on stock reserved for you, from where you can pull the units in accordance to your immediate need. Shipments can be made from day to day, on the number of units you need at that moment, whether it’s 1 pc. or 500 pcs. The invoicing is done on the units that are deducted after shipment.

The framework agreement period can range from a half to two years depending on the quantity and your needs.

When the order is accumulated, we can produce several units at the same time, so there is only one set-up cost. That means a cheaper product for you.

We make framework agreements for both new orders or existing products.

Your advantages are:

  • Short delivery time
  • Low price
  • Fixed price for the entire agreement period
  • Same quality and certificate for the entire period's consumption
