Flow-Max filter cartridges outperform wound, spun, melt blown, resin bonded, and other "depth" type filter elements because our cartridges are pleated to provide increased surface area and longer life.
Lower pressure drop is another significant advantage, using Flow-Max pleated cartridges, which allows for increased flow rates and use of smaller filter housings to reduce equipment costs.
Further savings are provided because our 100% synthetic filter media is cleanable, five micron and up, to lower cartridge replacement costs.
Flow-Max filter cartridges outperform other pleated elements because our higher-performance filter media is synthetically produced using 100% synthetic fibers, with no binders or additives to leave a residue or foam.
Our filter media is dramatically thicker than other products. For this reason, Flow-Max cartridges provide "depth" filtration for greater sediment removal, along with more surface area with our improved pleated design and media.
|Pleated Sediment Cartridge Specifications|
|Temperature Range||40 - 140°F (4.5 - 60°C)||End Caps||Plastisol (Standard & Big Blue);
|Media||100% Chemical Resistant PP, PE and PET, with no binders or additives||Packaging||All cartridges are shrink wrapped for purity|
|Center Tubes||PP (Standard & Big Blue);
|Flow Rates||See data charts below|
Flow-Max cartridges are pleated, so initial pressure drop is significantly less compared to depth cartridges, such as wound, spun, melt blown and resin bonded. As a result, higher flow rates are possible, reducing filter housing size requirements to lower capital equipment costs.
Maximum flow rate guidelines for Flowmatic cartridges are shown below:
Flow-Max cartridges are washable and reusable, five micron and up to reduce filtration costs. For best results, direct spray into pleats to dislodge sediment. Or, let dry and brush off filter cake from surface of the media.
All Flow-Max cartridges are individually shrink wrapped for purity
