It's been in my head for 10+ years now and only just starting to put it together.
Actually your thinking of a hopback

You could probably use a very coarse filter for wort if you wanted to, but I've never heard of anyone doing that, at least with a filter cartridge. It would probably clog with hop mater/break material pretty quickly. Most would use a bazooka screen, hop taco, etc. inside the kettle.
