High Efficiency, Long Life Cartridges for Industrial Fluids

  • Large Surface Area – Allows high flow rate with low initial pressure drop and maximum
    contaminant holding capacity.
  • Resin Impregnated Media – Maintains strength, resists effects of water and heat.
  • 75 psi Collapse Strength – Heavy gauge carbon steel center tubes give safety margin
    against pressure surges.
  • Coated Steel Components – Resist corrosion from most industrial fluids.
  • Corrugated Media – Prevents pleat pinch-off, assuring all filtration media is utilized.
  • Buna-N Gaskets – The best general gasket material available assures positive seal in most fluids.
  • Thermoset Bonding Material – Durable endcap-to-media bond prevents internal bypassing
  • Threaded base filter cartridges – Available for easier installation.
