The Tornado™ 602 is an efficient, easy to maintain self-cleaning particulate filter for use in liquid sample lines. It is designed to direct the sample into a tornadic flow path that cleans the filter element continuously while allowing components of interest to flow to the analyzer. A multi-layered single element is used for particulate filtration, resulting in more efficiency as well as easier installation and handling. Additionally, all connection ports are located on the body so there’s no need to disconnect tubing fittings in order to check or change the element. Finally, the Tornado™ 602’s gasket can withstand radical temperature cycles while maintaining a bubble-tight seal and is an excellent alternative to other more expensive elastomers.
