Depth Filtration – Wound Range
- Versatile, economic, with complete quality control
- 95°C – 400°C
- Polypropylene, cotton, glass-fibre
Basic technology that works. Wound filter cartridges have been successfully used in industry for decades, with little change in the method of manufacture, and are an effective matrix for trapping particulate within the media.
Fileder wounds are manufactured by AFL in Cleveland, UK, who maximise modern production techniques. AFL are unique in this country, being the only plant today to control the manufacture from raw polypropylene extract through to the computer controlled winding.
Available in 3 medias and a wide span of micron ratings, wound filter cartridges offer cost-effective particulate filtration with a history to prove it.
|Polypropylene – the most popular cartridge media, having broad chemical compatibility, good temperature resistance and low cost. Where the filtrate stream is adversely affected by the anti-static additives, washed polypropylene is available that has been processed to remove these chemicals.|
|Cotton – principally used where polypropylene is chemically incompatible with the filtrate, the most common application being the filtration of chlorinated solvents in degreasing units. In such instances, a stainless steel core is recommended.|
|Glass-fibre – the primary advantage of glass-fibre is its ability to withstand temperatures to 400ºC, often making it the sole choice. Similarly, when filtering oxidising agents, glass-fibre is the only economic cartridge with excellent chemical compatibility. All glass-fibre cartridges require stainless steel core option.|
