Pleated Filter Cartridges

Pleated Filter Cartridges

High purity cartridges in a variety of media grades.

Pleated Polypropylene Cartridge
Pleated Polypropylene Cartridges are designed for high-efficiency retention (90% to 99.98% efficiency). Designed with up to 6.5 square feet of filtration media, these cartridges are constructed with 100% polypropylene materials and assembled using the latest thermal bonding equipment.

Pleated Micro-glass Cartridge
Pleated Micro-glass Cartridges offer an economical, absolute rated, filtration solution for both liquids and gases. Designed for excellent flow, long service life and with the exceptional characteristics of borosilicate fiberglass media for high dirt-loading. The natural positive charge of the glass also aids in the retention of negatively charged particulates such as bacteria, endotoxins and a variety of colloidal materials. FG cartridges are offered in both absolute (to 99.98%) and nominal (90%) retention efficiencies

Economy Pleated Polyester Melt-blown Cartridge
Economy Pleated Polyester Melt-blown Cartridges offer a highly efficient and cost-effective filtration option for use in a wide variety of applications. Thermally bonded assembly provides a clean and robust construction. Cartridges are offered in DOE and 222 end configurations as well as in both nominal (90%) and absolute (to 99.98%) retention efficiencies.

LiquidClear GF – Synthetic Pleated Cartridge
LiquidClear GF media cellulose-free construction.  The pleated design is a proprietary blend of polypropylene/polyester fibers for high-dirt loading compared to conventional stringwound, melt-blown, or resin-bonded filters.  Elements also offer high flow rates at low pressure drops and incorporate Plastisol (PVC) end caps / gaskets for a truly positive seal.  All cartridges are manufactured with polypropylene outer netting and are available in a variety of micron ratings (0.35 – 50) and lengths (9.75”– 40”).

Pleated Membrane Cartridges

Pleated Membrane Cartridges

High Purity – Food and Beverage Grade PES
Food and Beverage Grade PES Cartridges have been designed to comply with all FDA requirements for the food industry. The polyethersulfone membrane exhibits low protein-binding characteristics; making it an excellent choice for fermented beverage applications. Each cartridge is flushed with high purity DI water and 100% integrity tested to ensure the delivery of clean effluent as well as low extractables.

The 0.2 micron cartridge has been validated with Brevundamonas Diminuta and exhibits a Log 7 reduction (107 organisms/cm2 ) of the bacteria. Additonally, the 0.45 micron cartridge has been validated with Serratia marscecens and also shows a Log 7 reduction (107 organisms/cm2 ) of the bacteria.

High Purity – Water Service Grade PES
Water Service Grade PES Cartridges are cost effective alternatives to General and Electronic Grade cartridges for a variety of aqueous based fluids. Water Service cartridges are manufactured from an inherently hydrophilic PES membrane. These cartridges offer excellent flow characteristics, extended service life and broad chemical compatibility.

High Purity – Pharmaceutical Grade PES
PPES Pharmaceutical Grade filter cartridges are ideal for sterile filtration and clarification of pharmaceutical and biological solutions. Each PPES cartridge is integrity tested during manufacturing and is supported by a validation guide for regulatory compliance. Low protein binding and the broad chemical compatibility characteristics of the polyethersulfone membrane, along with exceptional flow rate vs pressure drop, makes the PPES series the ideal choice for a variety of valuable and/or critical pharmaceutical solutions. PPES cartridges are fully validated as sterilizing grade filters in accordance with HIMA and ASTM F838-05 guidelines. Sterile effluent was achieved with challenge concentration levels in excess of 107 Brevundimonas diminuta organisms per cm2 of filter area.

High Purity – General Grade PTFE
General Grade PTFE Cartridges are designed for multi-purpose use wherever a cost effective PTFE membrane cartridge is required. GGPTFE series cartridges are hydrophobic and resist wetting in critical air/vent applications. The Extended Area option (GGPTFEX) offers up to 40% more surface area. This additional area results in significant increases in flowrate and loading capacity in the same footprint.

High Purity- Pharmaceutical Grade PTFE
PPTFE Pharmaceutical Grade sterilizing filter cartridges provide optimized filtration performance in sterile air/gas and venting applications. The single layer PTFE membrane, with over double the hydrophobicity of polypropylene or PVDF, is the best choice to prevent water intrusion and resulting microbial growth. Each PPTFE cartridge is integrity tested during manufacturing and is supported by a validation guide for regulatory compliance. PPTFE elements are fully validated as sterilizing grade filters in liquids in accordance with HIMA and ASTM F838-05 guidelines and in gases through full retention of the MS2 phage in an aerosol challenge.

G.E.M. Reverse Osmosis Membrane

G.E.M. Reverse Osmosis Membrane

G.E.M. Reverse Osmosis Membranes provide the high salt rejection and flow rates typically available from competitive composite membranes while providing superior value. This gives the membrane user an edge by providing reduced reverse osmosis system operating costs. The pre-filtration program offered by Global Filter, in conjunction with the G.E.M. elements, can minimize the need for costly membrane cleanings. These elements are manufactured utilizing an ISO 9001:2000 Certified Quality Management System.
