Small Capsule Filter

Compact, Self-Contained Filter Assemblies
for Use in Digital Printing Systems

The Pall® Small Capsule Filter (SCF) is a compact filter assembly designed for the needs of equipment OEMs where fine filtration and low hold-up volumes are critical.

This capsule features a high-area pleated filter construction for long service life and low initial pressure drop, ideal for situations where space is at a premium. In addition to the standard polypropylene capsule, an opaque UV resistant capsule in polypropylene is also available.

Features

  • The SCF assemblies are absolute-rated filter capsules for ink jet ink filtration on Digital Printing systems.
  • No binders, adhesives or mold release agents are employed in the manufacture of this product.
  • The SCF assemblies feature Pall HDC® II polypropylene filter media. (Reference USD1295 literature for further details). Other media options are available upon request.
