The access door and tube sheet are integrated on a single hinge with removable tube filter assemblies. The unique material entry design on the top of the receiver reduces can velocity concerns. The unit also features an integral 70 degree hopper, mounting legs and pressure differential indicator. The SFR is designed to meet FDA, EHEDG, ATEX standards and can easily be adapted for NFPA standards.

The SFR is available in a 914 mm (36 in) and a 1,219 mm (48 in) diameter unit.

The filter tube sheets include filters made from spunbond polyester with an ePTFE membrane which is FDA acceptable. The filters are cleaned by sequential pulses of compressed air from a removable, locally mounted accumulator.
