Filter cartridges are used for the clarification, fine and membrane filtration of liquids. Areas of application include particle separation through depth filter cartridges and sterilising filtration through separation of microorganisms with membrane filter cartridges.
Membrane filter cartridges and depth filter cartridges are distinguished as follows: Membrane filter cartridges are always pleated, since a large surface is required. They are used for sterile filtration. Depth filter cartridges are available as pleated or wrapped types. In wrapped depth filter cartridges the individual filter layers become increasingly finer from the outside to the inside. They are back-washable and mechanically more stable. They are used for clarification and fine filtration and for protecting the membrane filter cartridges. The most important products are listed below.
