Industry Review

Shelco offers a variety of different filter vessels to fit most application. Shelco vessels come in single cartridge and multi cartridge, to fit your needs. Shelco also come in a variety of different materials, such as stainless steel, carbon steel, polypropylene and many more.

Shelco Vessels their stainless-steel series are made of 304ss or 316ss. Shelco offers many configurations for example, NPT, flange or grooved connections. The nice thing about the semi-custom configurations is their delivery time doesn’t change its 5 to 7 business days than the vessel ships. I highly recommend this line for all your filtering applications.

Sincerely,
