Title: A FILTER ASSEMBLY WITH A DIFFUSER
Abstract:
A filter assembly comprises a filter head, a port, a fitting, and a diffuser. The port extends from a portion of the filter head and defines a channel for fluid to flow into or out of the filter head. The fitting first end is attachable to the port and the fitting second end is attachable to a filtration system component. The diffuser is positionable within the channel of the port and comprises an inner surface and an outer surface. The inner surface defines an inner conical hollow region that extends at a nonzero angle between the inner conical hollow region first end and the inner conical hollow region second end such that a first inner diameter of the diffuser at the inner conical hollow region first end is smaller than a second inner diameter of the diffuser at the inner conical hollow region second end.
