GGHNY-Series Overview

GGHNY-Series High Purity General Grade Nylon and Plus+ Nylon Filter Cartridges, featuring Nylon 6,6 membrane, provide excellent particulate retention and cleanliness for general use applications. Nylon 6,6 membrane has performed successfully over many decades, establishing a legacy of proven performance value. The optional positive zeta potential surface charge (Plus+) enhances retention performance for particulate well smaller than the stated micron rating, for applications that may include the removal of haze, color bodies, and endotoxins. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness.
