PSH-Series Hydrophobic Polysulfone

PSH-Series High Purity Hydrophobic Polysulfone Membrane Filter Cartridges provide a cost-effective alternative to PTFE or PVDF membrane cartridges for air, bulk gas, and tank vent applications requiring high moisture resistance. The highly asymmetric membrane pore structure provides high flow rate at low pressure drop. Constructed using high purity polypropylene hardware and support layers. PSH-Series cartridges offer outstanding performance value. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness.
