Innovative Filter Design for High
Efficiency Filtration of Ink Jet Inks
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.
