ProfileĀ® Star Filter Cartridges for Ink Jet Ink Formulation

Innovative Filter Design for High
Efficiency Filtration of Ink Jet Inks

The Profile® Star ink jet filter is an all-polypropylene pleated depth filter that combines the exceptional dirt-holding capacity of the Profile II medium with the high flow rates of the HDC® II pleated medium.

While the Profile Star filter has a pressure drop and flow capability that are comparable to many competitive pleated polypropylene filters, it also provides excellent removal of contaminants such as gels and agglomerates.

The Profile medium has been designed to minimize strip-out of desirable colorant and to improve removal of oversized contaminants.

As particle size increases, the removal performance of this medium increases dramatically. The medium also features a graded pore density to maximize void volume and service life.

Features

  • Absolute-rated1 pleated depth filters with all-polypropylene construction.
  • Four nominal filter lengths:
    • 254 mm / 10 in.
    • 508 mm / 20 in.
    • 762 mm / 30 in.
    • 1016 mm / 40 in.
  • Absolute removal ratings from 0.8 μm to 90 μm.
  • Single-open-ended and double-open-ended styles, with different configurations available.
Features Advantages Benefits
Sharp cutoff for particle size Excellent classification filter Effective removal of oversized contaminant without stripping colorant
Absolute-rated filter media Consistent, repeatable filtration Consistent ink quality from batch to batch
All-polypropylene construction Excellent compatibility with most ink systems Can be applied over a wide range of inks
Pleated construction Higher flow rates than typical depth filter cartridges Improved ink production speed
Free of surfactants, binders, and mold release agents Low extractables in most ink systems Filter will not affect critical ink properties
Pleated depth filter media Exceptional dirt-holding capacity and long service life Low filtration cost per gallon/liter
Fixed pore structure Solids will not unload during variations in flow or pressure Permanently traps contaminants
1 The removal ratings in this publication are based on the modified OSU-F2 test. Contact your Pall representative for additional information.
