Penguin pleated cartridge filters are an alternative to string wound or spun molded filters. These filters are economical, multi-use, premium quality products that are available in various micron ratings ranging from 50-micron nominal down to .10 micron absolute. Endcap configurations include DOE (double open end, flat gasket) and SOE (single open end, external double 222 0-ring/button end cap). Filter media available include self-bonded fine diameter polypropylene fibers as well as membranes constructed of polypropylene, nylon, or PTEF.
Penguin pleated cartridge filters contain no surfactants or binders that can break down, leach out, or permit the typical problems of channeling and media migration. Maximum effective open surface areas allow for high flow rates at reduced pressure losses as well as high dirt holding capacity, long service life, large throughputs, and lower operating costs. Penguin pleated cartridge filters may be used as either prefilter or as final filters for bulk and point-of-use filtration. They are most appropriate for use when high-efficiency filtration and economy are crucial.
