Corrosion Resistant Compact Filter Systems

Flow rate to 5,000 gph
With CPVC centrifugal pump with water flushed double mechanical seals.

  • Designed for filtering all common acid and alkaline plating solutions to 190*F.
  • High temperature PVC or CPVC chamber construction
  • Portable, compact, leakproof, trouble-free, heavy duty.


Portable filtration systems for use with acid and Alkaline solutions. Model VS is PVC construction to 160*F, Model CD is CPVC construction to 190*F.

"CK" Series With CARBO-KLEAR

Filtration systems with separate integral carbon treatment chamber. Valve manifolded for continuous or intermittent carbon treatment.

CHAMBERS: Available in two materials of construction - Rigid heavy duty PVC for service to 160F, or CPVC for service to 190F.

A swingaway yoke seals the filter chamber cover. This advanced design provides center point compression, distributing pressure evenly over the entire cover gasket for a tight, leakproof seal. Closure and chamber cover removal, is quick and easy, requiring only a twist of a single knob.

Summit makes use of this convenient and simple design wherever size permits. On models 1230 and 1240 our traditional swingaway closure is used.

Filter chamber is permanently sealed into the base - no leakage at base when cover is removed for servicing.

All fittings are socket welded, for rigid strength and leak-proof operation.


  • Model CC8 - Constructed of molded CPVC plastic. Double pump seals are standard type 21, Viton, Carbon, Ceramic with water flush connections and hose. Close coupled to a 2 H.P, TEFC, 230/460 volt, 3 phase, 60 Hz motor.

BASE: All equipment is mounted on a corrosion resistant, epoxy coated, rigid base with 2" ball bearing swivel casters for portability.

ACCESSORIES: All models are supplied with a hypalon diaphragm protected pressure gauge, flow control valve, chamber air vent valve, PVC ribbed hose with suction strainer.

SUMMIT Polypropylene Sleeve Filter Media

The polypropylene core and felt sleeve media, used in all advanced design Summit Filters, eliminate costly wound filter tubes. . . time-consuming preparation of filter-aid cakes. . . and messy filter bags. Permanent, reusable filter sleeves with rigid polypropylene supporting cores are available for controlled filtration from 1 to 100 micron porosity. Unmatched in performance and economy, the polypropylene sleeve can be used over and over again - simply flush off trapped solids. Interchangeable with conventional filter cartridges, if desired. Also available in ULTRA-PURE, PRE-WASHED, filter sleeves or wound cartridges containing no contaminating or foaming agents. For use with critical solutions. For additional information, refer to Bulletin 905.

CARBO-KLEAR CARBON TREATMENT SYSTEMS: A complete purification system with a carbon chamber mounted on a common base with the filter system.

System is valve manifolded for quick selection of desired operation: Filtration only, or filtration and carbon treatment; continuously or intermittently.

CARBO-KLEAR CARBON CARTRIDGES: contain pure, washed, dust-free, sulfur-free activated fine carbon granules, in a sealed, disposable Polypropylene cartridge.

Highly Selective, this carbon quickly reaches its saturation point in minimal amounts of organic additives, yet continues to have excellent adsorption for organic, impurities.

The solution is pumped upward at a slow flow rate for maximum contact time, through a dense bed of activated carbon. Following organic decontamination, the solution is automatically filtered through PERMA-KOTE filter sleeves, down to 1 micron, entrapping all solids. The clean, pure solution then flows back into the tank.

There are two model sizes to choose from, depending on the number of gallons of solution in the tank to be purified; the amount of organic contamination present or introduced during processing; and whether Carbo-Klear is to be used continuously or intermittently. The following chart may serve as quantitative rule of thumb on model selection. For additional information, refer to Bulletin 915.


BY-PASS VALVE: For independent transfer pumping.

SLURRY TANK WITH VALVE MANIFOLD: To perform all chemical feed and precoat slurry functions.
