FGE-Series Economy Grade Pleated Microglass Media

FGE-Series high purity economy grade pleated borosilicate microglass filter cartridges offer high-efficiency retention of particulate matter from liquid and gaseous fluid streams. It is favored for its superior retention efficiency, low-pressure drop, and greater contaminant loading capacity relative to alternative media.

FGE-Series Overview

The FGE-Series is often preferred when the application calls for a more economical option or where the 2.5” OD is required.

Suitable for food and potable water contact, the FGE-Series meets the high-performance demands in food and beverage production. Also suitable for use in a broad range of applications, including process water, lubricants, and a range of fine chemicals. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness. Offered in both absolute-rated (up to 99.98% retention) and nominally-rated (90% retention) grades in common adapter configurations.
