coolant flush and thermostat

Doing my coolant flush for first time.
New thermostat I got from dealer has t-stat and housing as one unit.
Old one pulled is the same.
Do they separate, so I can install the housing alone for speedier flush ( as mentioned to do in many of the flush procedures; or is this a "new type" where they are one unit period.
Thanks alot in advance!

They separate. Push down on the cross bar (both sides at the same time) and twist.

Just did my flush yesterday W "Restore+" and added CAT ELC with a Dieselsite coolant filter. All the junk at the bottom of the bucket...SAND!! was incredible. I feel better doin the flush @ 43K miles than having to do it later on, having all that shiznat floating around makes me quiver.
