A Guard Filter Designed for High Performance
Profile II cartridges are high-efficiency depth style filters constructed of polypropylene. Constructed of polypropylene, with a continuously graded fixed pore structure, these cartridges provide pre- and final filtration within the same cartridge resulting in lower overall filtration and disposal costs.
Clarification and Particle Removal
The Profile II filter is a guard filter cartridge that provides a removal efficiency of >99.98% in compatible liquids with consistent filtration performance.

Sterilization and Sanitization5
|in situ Steam Sterilization||125 °C (257 °F)||10 hours|
|in situ Hot Water Sanitization||80 °C (176 °F)|
5 For applications requiring in situ sterilization or sanitization Pall recommends the
use of Code 7 adaptors to ensure filter sealing after cooling. Cartridges should
be cooled to system operating temperature prior to use. If RF or RMF elements
are heated in situ and cooled by a difference of more than 20 °C (36 °F), sealing
of the element may be marginal, depending on the type of sealing mechanism
used in the filter housing.
Typical Flow Rates4
It is recommended that the Max. Flow rate be selected such that the clean element pressure drop does not exceed 0.7 bar (10 psid) for optimal assembly life. Please contact Pall for optimized sizing.

6 Profile II filter cartridge liquid retention ratings up to 20 micron are based on a
modified OSU-F2 single pass test in an aqueous medium. Oil is used as the
test medium for the 40 micron grade. Asterisks indicate extrapolated values.
Profile II filter cartridge liquid retention ratings are based on ANSI B93.31.73 modified for single pass testing in an aqueous medium.
