Profile® A/S 1401 Series Filter Elements

1401 Style Depth Filters Constructed of Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS) Medium
  • Proprietary depth construction with an absolute rated downstream section, and a continuously profiled pore size upstream section
  • PPS medium is chemically inert for use in aggressive service
  • Tin plated carbon steel cores provide excellent mechanical strength
  • Outside to inside flow
  • 3.7" (9.4 cm) diameter, 37" (94 cm) long element provides long service life
  • Knife-edge seal elements retrofit existing 1401 housings when used with specially designed 1401 housing adapter

Features and Benefits:

The depth style Profile A/S 1401 Series element offers the following benefits versus commonly utilized pleated paper 1401 style filters.

Feature Advantage Customer Benefit
No potting agents utilized No potting agents used to attach filter end caps as is done with 1401 style pleated paper elements Wider temperature and chemical compatibility
Depth style media Greater ability to remove soft deformable contaminants Enhanced fluid quality
Fine fibers utilized Medium void volume >80% vs <50% for paper medium  Long filter life

Product Specifications

Materials of Construction

Filter media: Polyphenylene Sulfide (PPS)
Center core: Tin plated carbon steel

Dimensions (nominal):

Outside diameter: 3.7" (9.4 cm)
Inside diameter: 2.25" (5.7 cm)
Length:  36.8" (93.5 cm) 

Filter Media Characteristics:
The fibers in Profile A/S 1401 Series filters are continuous for
practical purposes.

Surfactants, Binders:
No binder resin or surfactants are used in the manufacture of
these filters. Fibers are “bonded” by intertwining during the
manufacturing process.

Toxicity:
The filter media meets the specifications for biological tests
listed in the current revision of USP for Class VI plastics at 121°C

3 Ratings determined using oil F2 Test (ISO Coarse Test Dust in MIL-H-5606; single pass mode).

4 Pressure drop in PSI per GPM water for a single element. Multiply this value by the required flow to determine the total aqueous pressure drop. Next, for fluids other than water, multiply by viscosity in centipoise. If this calculated pressure drop is excessive, then divide this value by the number of filters required to reduce this pressure drop to an acceptable level.

 

MCC1401 Housings - Aqueous Pressure Drop

To calculate the actual housing pressure drop, multiply this aqueous pressure drop by the fluid’s specific gravity. This value must be added to the filter pressure drop to calculate the overall pressure drop of the filter system.

Housing Information

A full line of standard and custom Pall MCC1401 housings, designed and built to the ASME code, are available. Refer to Table 2 for more information.

A Pall supplied retrofit tie rod assembly is required to utilize Profile A/S 1401 style elements in existing 1401 style housings. This assembly allows for use of a knife edge seal style element in a housing that normally accepts end capped filters with internal O-rings.

The retrofit assembly consists of a top and bottom seat cup and tie rod. The bottom O-ring to knife-edge seal cup is placed over the housing riser pipe. The Profile A/S 1401 Series element is placed over each tie rod. The elements are sealed in place by screwing the top metal seal nut onto the top of the tie rod. When fully engaged, the tie rod/seal nut assembly forms a knife-edge sealing surface at both the top and bottom of the element.
