How to calculate the multiple filter cartridge filtration capacity?


To calculate the filtration capacity of a multiple filter cartridge system, you will need to consider the following factors:

1.Number of cartridges: Determine the number of filter cartridges in your system.

2.Cartridge dimensions: Obtain the dimensions of your filter cartridges, specifically the diameter and length.

3.Filtration rating: Determine the filtration rating of your filter cartridges, which is usually expressed in microns.

4.Flow rate: Determine the flow rate of your system, which is the amount of fluid passing through the filter per unit time, usually measured in gallons per minute (GPM).

5.Pressure drop: Determine the pressure drop across the filter cartridges, which is the difference in pressure between the inlet and outlet of the filter.


Once you have these parameters, you can use the following formula to calculate the filtration capacity of your multiple filter cartridge system:

Filtration capacity = (Number of cartridges) x (Cartridge surface area) x (Filter life) x (Flow rate) / (Pressure drop)


Cartridge surface area = π x (diameter/2)^2 x length x number of pleats

Filter life = time in hours or volume of fluid filtered before cartridge replacement is required

Note: π is approximately 3.14 and the number of pleats can be obtained from the cartridge specifications.

The filtration capacity is usually expressed in gallons or liters before the filter cartridges need to be replaced or cleaned.
