QXL Series Filter Cartridges

PP Pleated Filter Cartridge for Ink, Slurries and Coatings

With its extra-loft, extra-life depth filter configuration, the QXL is designed for the filtration of industrial solutions containing agglomerated particles and gels or with high viscosity. Consistent absolute retention performance is achieved throughout the pleated, layered microfiber matrix. The stateof- the-art, optimized structure provides significantly higher flow rates and throughputs than cylindrical melt blown filters.

  • Hybrid pleated depth construction combines graded pore structure with high surface area.
  • Constructed entirely of polypropylene — Compatible with a broad range of solutions and chemicals
  • Optimized pleat configuration — Provides the ideal combination of retention, flow rate and throughput
  • Excellent gel and agglomerated particle retention reduces defects
  • Available in common end cap configurations — Retrofits easily into most filter housings
  • USP Class VI: Meets USP Class VI Biological Test for Plastics.
  • FDA Listed Materials: All materials comply with FDA Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations Sections 174.5, and 177.1520, as applicable for food and beverage contact.
  • European Directive for Direct Food Contact: European Regulation No. 1935/2004 and European Regulation 10/2011: Tested for migration behavior and is suitable for contact with all kinds of foodstuffs with minimal rinse-up. Data available upon request.
