Features & Information

The hydrophobic properties of the SPECTRUM PTFE membrane cartridge combine with its rigid polypropylene support core to provide a sturdy cartridge with broad chemical compatibility suitable for use in chemical, air, gas and vent applications.


What are the advantages of the PTFE media construction of the PPPTFE?

PTFE water filters are chosen for their exceptional chemical resistance, temperature tolerance, and filtration efficiency. They are most often used in applications where maintaining water purity, avoiding contamination, and withstanding challenging conditions are essential.

Can PTFE filters withstand high temperatures?

Yes, PTFE filters are known for their high-temperature tolerance and can often withstand sterilisation methods like autoclaving. It is important to note that stainless steel end-caps may need to be used for high temperature applications or sterilisation.

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.
