How to choose a filter end cap?
Material selection is an important factor to consider when it comes to filter end caps as it determines the durability and compatibility of the end cap with your filtration system. The most common materials used in filter end caps are plastic, stainless steel, and aluminum, each with its own unique benefits and uses. Below are some of the most critical factors to consider when selecting the proper material for your filter end caps.

Plastic End Caps: They are lightweight, affordable and ideal for most low voltage applications. They are also compatible with a wide variety of filters, housing materials and media, making them a versatile and practical choice for many applications. However, they may not be suitable for high temperature or high pressure applications where durability and reliability are critical.

Stainless Steel End Caps: These are more expensive than plastic, but offer excellent strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. They are suitable for high pressure and high temperature applications and are ideal for the oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical industries. However, they may not be compatible with all filter media types or housing materials.
