HYDRO-GUARD® PPB Series Backflushable Filter Cartridges

The Most Extensively Used Backflushable Pleated

Filter in Power Plant Condensate

  • Backflushable Pleated Filter Designed Specifically for Use in Power Plants
  • The Hydro-Guard PPB is Used in Condensate With or Without Resin Precoat
  • Constructed With the Highest Purity Materials (no fillers, talcs, TiO2 or surfactants) for Minimal Rinse-up Time
  • Surface Area Exceeds That of Conventional Condensate Filters by a 20:1 ratio for Lower Pressure Drops, Increased Filter Life and Longer Backflush Cycles
  • Eliminates Costs Associated with Use and Disposal of Powdered Resins
  • Iron Oxide and Suspended Copper are Typically Reduced by 98%+
  • Absolute Construction and Surface Retention for Efficient Backflushing and Particle Removal
