    Abstract

    This specification covers the design, construction, test, and performance requirements for air or nitrogen system filters, referred to hereinafter as filters. These filters are intended to be installed in-line to protect equipment from particular contamination. Filter element type: type 1 - disposable, and type 2 - cleanable. Filter element bypass composition - composition A - with bypass, and composition B - without bypass. Filter element differential indicator style: style I - with differential pressure indicator, and style II - without differential pressure indicator. Visual examination, hydrostatic shell test, external leakage test, and bubble point test shall be performed to meet the requirements prescribed.
