Disclosed is a disposable filter capsule apparatus that incorporates integral quick connect components and check valves to facilitate assembly to, and dis-assembly from, larger assemblies and apparatus. The quick connect elements and valves are configured to eliminate the need for auxiliary sealing elements, e.g., o-rings and valve springs so as to prevent unwanted reactions with fluids and/or gases flowing through the capsules, and to further prevent the disposal of expensive re-usable elements in the disposable capsules.
1. A disposable filter capsule apparatus comprising: a capsule body having portions defining a filter chamber;a filter secured in the chamber;at least one port having an inner wall defining a port chamber in fluid communication with the filter chamber wherein the port extends from the capsule body, and wherein an inner junction of the capsule body and the port forms a tapered annular wall having a small diameter end and a large diameter end, wherein the small diameter end connects to the port chamber;a quick connect fitting integral to the at least one p...
