For Particle Removal at Elevated Flow RatesUltipleat High Flow filter elements are designed for cost-effective, highly efficient particle filtration in high flow rate food and beverage applications.
The Ultipleat High Flow filter elements are designed for high flow rates up to 113 m3/hour (500 US gal/min) in a single 1524 mm (60 inch) cartridge. They utilize Profile UP media with unique, laid-over pleat geometry. The Ultipleat High Flow element is a large diameter, single open ended, pleated cartridge with an inside to outside flow pattern and a core-free construction.
The filter's unique, laid-over pleat geometry, combined with its large diameter means fewer elements are required for a given flow rate than standard diameter cartridges. Filter vessels are correspondingly smaller, resulting in lower capital and installation costs, as well as reduced operating costs.

Technical InformationThe technical information provided is based on controlled laboratory tests done on typical production filters at the conditions described, unless otherwise indicated. Actual operating conditions may affect the filter's performance.
Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids1
|Maximum Differential Pressure||Max. Operating Temperature2|
|3.45 bard (50 psid) (inside to out flow)||82 °C (180 °F)|
1 Fluids which do not swell, soften or adversely affect any of the filter components.
2 Not recommended where the temperature is cycled by more than 28 °C (50 °F).
Maximum temperatures are for continuous service.
