The patent application (Publication Number: US20240033662A1) describes a filter cartridge designed to efficiently filter liquid. The filter cartridge comprises a housing with an inlet and outlet, a filter member inside the housing, and an endcap between the filter member and the inlet. The endcap features a unique design with a plurality of fins that redirect the liquid flow into the cartridge, preventing direct radial outward flow and promoting circumferential and radial outward movement relative to the filter member's axis.

Furthermore, the endcap is configured to create channels between the fins, allowing the liquid to flow towards the filter member through the inlet. The fins extend in a curved shape along the outer side of the endcap, with options for clockwise or counter-clockwise redirection of the liquid flow. The endcap's design, including a tapered outer side or conical shape, ensures efficient liquid redirection towards the filter member. Overall, the filter cartridge and endcap combination aims to enhance the filtration process by optimizing the flow path and preventing direct radial outward movement of the liquid, ultimately improving the cartridge's filtering efficiency and performance.
