Stainless Steel Filters

Global Filter’s stainless steel filter elements offer an excellent filtration solution for applications with extreme thermal ranges and differential pressures while providing excellent contaminant holding capacity and efficiency.  

GSS-Series Cylindrical & Pleated Stainless Steel

The GSS-Series elements are constructed entirely with 316L stainless steel, which not only provides excellent strength and resistance in extreme applications but allows for easier and repeated cleaning cycles without compromising product integrity. Available in micron ratings ranging from 1.0 to 200.0 and particulate retention up to 99.0%, the GSS-Series elements are available in three robust configurations to accommodate a variety of applications: Cylindrical Woven Mesh (SSC), Pleated Woven (SSP), and Sintered Pleated Woven (SSSP).

Typical Applications

Used for a wide variety of applications from clarification and pre-filtration to sterile filtration:

  • Cryogenic Fluids
  • Aggressive Chemicals
  • High Pressure Steam
  • Polymers
  • Corrosive Gases
  • High Temperature Fluids

Construction Materials

  • Filtration Media: 316L SS
  • Support Media: 316L SS
  • Outer Cage (If Used): 316L SS 
  • High Pressure Core: 316L SS 
  • End Caps: 316L SS 
  • Bonding: Welded
  • O-Rings/Gaskets: Buna, EPDM, Silicone, Viton® 

Note: Buna-N and EPDM elastomers have a temperature limit of 250˚F. Silicone and Viton® can tolerate up to 400˚F.

SSC = Stainless Steel Cylindrical Mesh
SSP = Stainless Steel Pleated Woven
SSSP = Stainless Steel Sintered Pleated Woven
