Filter Cartridge Product Line
Five Filter Cartridge Versions Our filter cartridges are used for a variety of applications found in the general industrial, chemical, biofuel/energy, pharmaceutical and food/beverage industries. Following is a brief description of each filter cartridge type, listed in order of expense; from least expensive to most expensive. The cost of a filter cartridge reflects the type and amount of material used in its construction along with special design features such as efficiency and sealing. All of our filter cartridges are manufactured under ISO 9001 quality control standards and several satisfy FDA regulations. Our filter cartridges are compatible with all Eaton filter cartridge housings and most other brands as well.
LOFTREX™Melt blown polypropylene filter cartridges which have a multi-density design to simultaneously retain both coarse and fine particles. The outer portion consists of non-woven melt blown polypropylene for retention of larger particles. The inner area consists of a bi-component polypropylene and polyethylene fiber inner core to retain the finer particulate that traversed through the melt blown section. LOFTREX™ are constructed as a single piece; it is not a two piece design with an inner core. No surfactants are present which could contribute to foaming or other undesirable performance and the material of construction satisfies FDA CFR 177 requirements. LOFTREX™ filter cartridges are offered in four designs encompassing both nominal and absolute rated retentions and single and multi-zone designs for retentions within 0.50 to 150 microns.
LOFCLEAN™LOFCLEAN™ polyester filter cartridges are designed to be extremely rigid to prevent particulate unloading. A phenolic resin fixes the long polyester fibers into a rigid assembly with grooved structure to maximize surface area. Cartridges longer than 10" are bonded with a polyamide hot melt adhesive for an overall rigidity capable of handling extreme viscosities and temperatures without compression or collapse. LOFCLEAN™ polyester filter cartridges have a graded density for retaining coarse particles in the outer circumference and finer particles near the inner core. LOFCLEAN™ polyester filter cartridges are used for paints, inks, sealants, adhesives, lacquers, varnishes, shellacs, fuel oils, crude oils, grease, machine coolants, silicones, antifreeze, plasticizers, animal oils and similar viscosity fluids.
LOFPLEAT™LOFPLEAT™ filter cartridges are made from polypropylene; two models are also made from borosilicate micro fiberglass with an acrylic binder. All LOFPLEAT™ filter cartridges are manufactured under ISO 9001 quality control standards to provide precise retention consistency; most are constructed from FDA approved materials that satisfy USP Class VI biological tests for plastics. LOFPLEAT™ filter cartridges are used for agglomerated particle and gel retention filtration applications for the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries. LOFPLEAT™ filter cartridges have up to 7 ft2 surface area with an absolute retention range from 0.1 µm to 100.0 µm.
LOFMEM™LOFMEM™ filter cartridges are made from Polyethersulfone (PES) and Teflon (PTFE) membranes under ISO 9001 quality control standards to provide absolute retention consistency. LOFMEM™ filter cartridges are used for final filtration of wine and beverages, ultrapure water filtration, DI water, photo resists, pharmaceutical intermediates, strong acids/bases, compressed gases and fermentation air. LOFMEM™ filter cartridges are manufactured in an ISO Class 7 cleanroom and 100% flushed. LOFMEM™ filter cartridges have 7 ft2 to 8½ ft2 surface area with an absolute retention range from 0.03 µm to 1.00 µm.
