Method 17 In-Stack Filter Assemblies

In-stack filter assembly, 5/8-inch tube union, uses a 47-mm-diameter filter element. SFA-47

In-stack filter assembly, 5/8-inch tube union, uses a 25 x 90 mm thimble filter element. SFA-2590

In-stack filter assembly, 5/8-inch tube union, uses a 30 x 100 mm thimble filter element. SFA-300

Compared to the original, the enhanced SFA-2590 model is 50% lighter and has a reduced diameter which means less blockage of the stack by about 2 square inches per traverse point. The enhanced model accepts PTFE (GF-2590T), quartz silica (GF-2590Q) or borosilicate micro-fiber (GF-2590) filters and requires a MPT-6-308 pitot tube.

Integrated In-Stack Filter Assembly Kit

The SGFA-47NK in-stack filter assembly kit features the unique design combination of borosilicate glass 47-mm filter inlet with integrated nozzle, allowing the option to weigh the glass fiber filter media individually for Method 17 or very similar to Method 5I by weighing the combined nozzle and filter media with support, O-Ring and PTFE tape. The kit includes the standard array of seven nozzle sizes from 1/8-inch to 1/2-inch.  SGFA-47NK

Glass In-Stack Filter Assemblies

The Apex Instruments GFA-2590 thimble holder is constructed completely from borosilicate glass for use with Conditional Method for Ammonia (CTM-027) and accepts tapered 25 x 90mm thimbles, specifically manufactured for stack sampling. The thimble holder does not require O-rings or grease; for testing at higher temperatures. The borosilicate glass withstands temperatures up to 480°C (900°F).
