FiltaPleat

HIGH SURFACE AREA
PLEATED FILTER CARTRIDGE


 

FiltaPleat High Surface Area Cartridges utilizes pleated depth media offering maximum efficiency and exceptionally high flow capabilities. Developed to suit industrial processes where high performance is required, the low pressure loss and high dirt capacity makes it the ideal choice for fine polishing applications. In-house developments have epitomized the pleat pack ensuring rigidity is maintained at all flow rates.

Two media options are offered as standard, the PP and GP. The PP features the specific CRY Cryptosporidium grade designed for Food and Beverage applications. All grades have all polypropylene end caps and internal support core. Thermal welding processes seal all components, eliminating adhesives and extractables and epitomizing cartridge integrity.

FiltaPleat -PP cartridges feature
• Melt blown Polypropylene media
• Wide chemical compatibility
• Materials meet US FDA title 21 requirements
• CRY Cryptosporidium grade

FiltaPleat -GP cartridges feature
• Glass microfibre media
• Extremely high dirt holding capacity

Absolute Rated Filter Media
• Available from 0.5 to 90 µm
• Consistent reliable performance

Product Features

FiltaPleat filter cartridges are produced using an improved manufacturing process resulting in the following features:
• High surface area, resulting in low clean delta-P and excellent dirt holding capacity
• 100% thermally welded construction for maximum integrity and strength, upto 1541mm (60”)
• Internal support core for resistance to back pressure

Filtermat manufacture a comprehensive range of filter housings for the FiltaPleat cartridges.
Available in many materials and sizes to suit all flow rates, please consult our sales office for further details on our full range.
