PSS® Porous Metal Filter Cartridges

Pall PSS porous metal filter cartridges are made from fine stainless steel powders sintered to form rugged high voids and fixed pore filters with high-temperature, pressure, and solvent resistance. P Series cartridges begin as flat porous sheets which are shaped and welded into cylindrical elements. S Series cartridges are produced in cylindrical form with higher voids and narrower pore size distributions for greater flows at comparable ratings. Double open-ended (DOE) style cartridges are standard. They are recommended for steam service and well suited for liquid or gas applications including solvents, chemical intermediates, heat transfer and cryogenic fluids, polymers, pharmaceuticals, and high-temperature gases. Single open-ended (SOE) AB sanitary and threaded styles are also available.

Features

  • All-stainless steel construction 
  • Controlled and fixed pore size
  • PH grade for clean steam
  • Up to 2x life of competitive filters
  • High pressure and corrosion resistant
  • Withstands high reverse-flows
  • High-temperature capabilities
  • Repeatedly cleanable
  • No soluble polymeric extractables
  • No unloading or shedding
  • Absolute rated for reliable performance
  • ISO 9000 Certified Quality System
  • Manufactured for use in conformance with cGMP
  • FDA-listed materials per 21 CFR
