GHLS-Series Lofted Pleated Polypropylene
GHLS-Series filter cartridges provide a 100% polypropylene element designed for the removal of agglomerated and deformable contaminants in oils and gels. The GHLS is an ideal combination of both depth and pleated depth functionality with its added loft. This allows for high retention and holding capacity without inhibiting throughput.
The pleated depth media is encapsulated in an integral, continuous length, thermally-bonded structure for cleanliness, pressure tolerance, and chemical inertness. Offered in both absolute rated (up to 99.98% retention) and nominally rated (90% retention) grades in common adapter configurations. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness.
