The 3M™ DS Housing is constructed of durable 304L stainless steel, meeting industrial and commercial filtration needs. All wetted welded surfaces are stainless steel and external surfaces are electro-polished for an easy-care finish. The filter housings are available in a variety of sizes to accommodate from 4 to 88 filter cartridges (single length equivalents).
Flexible and Durable Housings 3M™; DS Housing models 12DC and 22DC include spring and seal assemblies that permit the use of filter cartridges with single length equivalents of 9 3/4 or 10 inches. The 4DC and 5DC models use pressure plate assemblies, while the 12DC and 22DC models use pressure plate with individual spring and seal assemblies. Standard DC housings are configured to accept double open-end style cartridges. To adapt the housing to accept single open end, double o-ring cartridges with locating spear, remove the housing cartridge posts and the spring & seal assembly. Replace the standard pressure plate and the center rod with the single open end (SOE) pressure plate and center rod (sold separately).

These filters represent a major advance in pleated filter technology. Building on our long history of filter design innovation, many of our absolute-rated pleated cartridges feature our Advanced Pleat Technology (APT) that increases the usable filtration surface area while maintaining standard industrial cartridge dimensions. Our filters and housings are uniquely designed for longer service life while requiring less space, resulting in lower operational costs, ease of maintenance and greater process efficiency.
