High Efficiency Pleated Filter Cartridges

A cost effective, disposable, filter element that can be used for a wide range of applications. The filter is constructed of pleated polypropylene or polyester filter media with extend- ed area which allows for high system flow rate.

  • Micron ratings from 0.2 to 50 µm
  • FDA listed polypropylene components
  • Removal efficiency rated at 99.98%
  • High surface area
  • High dirt holding capacity
  • Longer on-line service reduces valuable maintenance time
  • Fixed pore construction eliminates dirt unloading as differential pressure increases
  • Food & beverage
  • Aqueous solutions
  • Chemicals
  • Blowdown post filter
  • Cosmetics
  • Rad waste
  • Magnetic tape coatings
  • RO Prefilters
  • Ink

Beta Ratio = Upstream particle counts

Downstream particle counts

The micron ratings shown at various efficiency and beta ratio value levels were determined through laboratory testing, and can be used as a guide for selecting cartridges and estimating their performance. Under actual field conditions, results may vary somewhat from the values shown due to the variability of filtration parameters. Testing was conducted using the single-pass test method, water at 3 gpm/10” cartridge. Contaminants included latex beads, coarse and fine test dust. Removal efficiencies were determined using dual laser source particle counters.
