Drinking water, beverage industry, mineral water bottling,
laboratory use, food industry, prefiltration ahead of sub-micron filters or Reverse Osmosis and other industrial
applications where low contamination levels are needed.
Polyester Pleated cartridges offer practical filtration with the convenience of a cartridge filter and the economy of cleanabilty.
High surface area pleated construction means longer run length, high flow rates, high dirt holding ability and low pressure drop, giving the lowest cost per litre filtered.
Once the cartridge gets dirty it can be cleaned under a tap or by gentle hosing. Severe cases can be soaked in diluted acid or other cleaners, appropriate to the deposits and then rinsed. Cartridges should be sterilised prior to re-use using bleach. Reusability means that the Polyester Pleated cartridges cost less to use than disposable depth type cartridges as they can be
cleaned several times before replacement is required (note: 1 & 5 micron cartridges may only be cleanable once or twice).
The cartridges are thermally bonded to provide integral joints between the pliable endcaps and rigid centre core for added strength and long service life.
Pleated cartridges are particularly useful for low pressure applications such as domestic supplies using header tanks or roof water.
