Ultipleat® High Flow Filter Elements with Profile® UP Media

For Particle Removal at Elevated Flow Rates

Ultipleat 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.
