Profile® UP Filters

Profile® UP filters are 63.5 mm (2.5 in.) diameter pleated polypropylene cartridges. The absolute-rated filter medium is constructed using Pall's proprietary method of varying fiber diameter continuously to create a tapered pore filter medium.

Given the unique medium construction and a proprietary crescent-shaped pleat structure, the pressure drop of the Profile UP filters is as low as half that of higher area pleated filters and as low as one-fifteenth that of conventional depth filters. Consequently, Profile UP filters provide exceptional service life. Profile UP filters can best be described as Pall's Ultipleat® filters utilizing Profile depth filter media. As a result, these filters are thicker than conventional pleated filters and are optimized for gel removal and sharp, distinct particle removal. This makes the elements ideal for viscous fluids and dispersions in addition to those many applications where long service life is desired.

For P and W options, the filters are constructed entirely of FDA-listed materials and the absolute rating of the filter is based upon the widely accepted modified Oklahoma State University (OSU) F-2 Filter Performance (Beta Rating) Test.

Notes:
a. The AB Code 18, 3, 7 and 8 elements are recommended if the cartridges be heated and then cooled by 20 °C (68 °F) prior to filtration.
b. The fit-up of AB Code 18 filters must be confirmed to ensure that the top the filter will meet with the housing lid or internal plate in the case of back pressure. This will ensure the cartridge O-ring seal is maintained.
c. The choice of an AB Code 3, 7 or 8 element will depend on the filter housing currently used in retrofit applications.
