Ultipleat® High Flow Filter Elements (1 µm)

For Fine Particle Removal from Water

Ultipleat 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.
