Portable filtration units, such as the filter cart, are ideal tools to remediate contaminated systems, flush new equipment during commissioning, or periodically decontaminate systems that have inadequate on-board filtration to meet target cleanliness levels. With industrial-duty pneumatic tires, a sturdy frame, and quality components, our filter carts are ideal for easy maneuverability around plant floors.

Filter carts are ideal for use on small to medium-sized reservoirs with low flow rates. Compatible with mineral-based industrial fluids, portable systems such as the filter cart provide a cost effective solution to maintaining fluid cleanliness in multiple applications with the same lubricant.

Heavy duty, lots of options, exceptional value … Des-Case filter carts are uniquely yours, because you pick the options you need for your specific environment and application.
