Features & Information

Strong Borosilicate glass fibre media gives the SPECTRUM PPG high-efficiency filtration with absolute-rated particulate removal at impressive flow rates. Suited to integral applications where consistent and absolute removal is required.


What is ‘absolute rated’ filtration?

It’s important to note that absolute rated filtration is distinct from nominal rated filtration in that absolute rated filters are designed to reliably capture particles of a specific size or larger, ensuring that no particles larger than the rated size will pass through the filter, whereas nominal filter ratings are more approximate and can allow some variability in particle size capture.

What is Borosilicate Glass Fibre?

Borosilicate glass fibre is a type of fibreglass made from borosilicate glass, which is a specialised type of glass known for its high resistance to heat, chemicals, and thermal shock.

What is a pleated filter?

A pleated filter is a type of liquid filtration cartridge designed with pleats or folds on the filter media to increase the surface area for better filtration efficiency compared to spuns and wounds.

What types of contaminants do pleated filters remove?

Pleated filters are used to remove suspended particulate. They are usually used to control finer particulate as a final stage of filtration where a specific contaminant is targeted for removal.
