Maximize Profits and Customer Satisfaction by Selecting the Correct Housing

The cartridge often is thought of as the heart of a filter system. However, the cartridge operates within a housing and even a cartridge that is perfectly matched to the application won’t perform adequately if it’s not also matched to a housing that meets the same application requirements. Specifying them together as an integrated system is the best way to assure they provide optimal performance.

Whether it is an issue of limited space, material compatibility or just challenging feed water, there always will be a need for custom-engineered solutions in the water treatment industry. Lee Co. of Nashville, Tenn., first looked at preengineered reverse osmosis (RO) systems from its local water treatment equipment dealers. The company quickly realized that this approach would not fit a particular situation.
