PP-Series High Purity Pleated Polypropylene

PP-series high purity pleated polypropylene filter cartridges provide a high area, 100% polypropylene element for removal of fine or coarse particulate from fluid streams.

pleated cartridges

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 all end configurations. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness. Commonly used in food/beverage and chemical applications as a final filter or prefiltration stage.


Performance Chart

*All data is based on absolute rated medias. Nominally rated medias will result in a pressure drop reduction of approximately 10%.
