For Fine Particle Removal from WaterUltipleat High Flow filter elements are designed for high particle removal efficiency of fine particulates from water applications. The Ultipleat High Flow filter elements utilize polyethersulfone (PES) 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 when compared to standard diameter cartridges. Filter vessels are correspondingly smaller, resulting in lower capital and installation costs, as well as reduced operating costs.

Typical Flow Rates5
2Compatible fluids are defined as those which do not swell, soften or attack any of the filter components.
3Not recommended where the temperature is cycled more than 10 °C (50 °F).
4Measured under laboratory test conditions. Users should verify suitability against their own conditions of use. Where indicated 10 minute sanitization cycles were utilized.
5Typical initial clean media differential pressure (Δp) per 1016 mm (40 in.) and 1524 mm (60 in.) cartridge for water at 20 °C (68 °F); viscosity 1 centipoise. For assistance in filter assembly sizing and housing selection, contact your Pall representative.
