Cartridge Filters

All PES and PP cartridge filters are produced in a clean room.

 

PES (PolyEtherSulfone) Membrane
Absolute >99.999% efficiency
Final Filters

Code 7 [aka 2-226, locking tabs, SOE (single open end)]

The only PES-Plus absolute filter with additional Polyproplene layer
PES-PLUS filters are unique in that they have an additional layer of Polypropylene (PP) . This adds dirt load capacity.
The PP acts as a prefilter within the same cartridge. Specifically designed for wine/beer/spirits filtration.

We have added standard PES absolute filters.

Each and every PES and PES-Plus filter is integrity tested prior to packaging.

Filtration direction is outside of filter to center.
Please note. Cartridges of different micron size look the same. So be careful to denote which is which after opening the package.

Activated Carbon Fiber
Code 7 [aka 2-226, locking tabs, SOE (single open end)]

Activated Carbon Fiber removes chlorine and organic compounds (odors).
Changeout time for 30" cartridge: 12000 gal. water. Much greater adsorption than granular activated carbon.
No carbon passes thru with product because the filter is made of woven fibers of activated carbon, not granular carbon.
Filter media is ENTIRELY ACTIVATED CARBON FIBER---there is no polypropylene fiber. Some brands have carbon fibers covered by polypropylene fibers--and they are white color. Our cartridges are black.

Cartridge Housings

From left to right: Triple with 2 gauges, 30" single with one gauge, 10" housing
Click here for discussion of sheet vs membrane filters.

Complete with Two Pressure Gauges

  • Two Sanitary Pressure Gauges with stainless steel diaphragm. One gauge on inlet side and one gauge on outlet side
  • 2 Butterfly Valves
  • Bleed/Blowout Valve
  • Tripod base
  • Polished 304 stainless.
  • Accepts Code 7 filter cartridge(s) (not included).

30" Single with 2 Gauges $935 in stock in Taylor

10" Single with 2 Gauges $740 in stock in Taylor

30" TRIPLE with 2 Gauges $1575 in stock in Taylor
Holds 3 30" cartridges. Note that filtration is parallel so you must use three cartridges of the same porosity (or you can use Cartridge Blanks in one or two of the ports).

Complete with One Pressure Gauge These units are the same except they do not have the pressure gauge on the outlet side.

  • Sanitary Pressure Gauge with stainless steel diaphragm
  • 2 Butterfly Valves
  • Bleed/Blowout Valve
  • Tripod base
  • Polished 304 stainless.
  • Accepts Code 7 filter cartridge(s) (not included).

30" Single with 1 Gauge $780 in stock in Taylor

10" Single with 1 Gauge $585 in stock in Taylor

30" TRIPLE with 1 Gauge $1410 in stock in Taylor
Holds 3 30" cartridges. Note that filtration is parallel so you must use three cartridges of the same porosity (or you can use Cartridge Blanks in one or two of the ports).

Housings Only These are housings only (with the Bleed/Blowout valve).

  • Polished 304 stainless.
  • 1.5" TriClamp Input and Output.
  • 1.5" TriClamp opening on top
  • Bleed/Blowout Valve
  • Tripod base.
  • Accepts Code 7 filter cartridge(s) (not included).

30" Single Housing $550 in stock in Taylor

10" Single Housing $350 in stock in Taylor

30" TRIPLE Housing $1175 in stock in Taylor
Holds 3 30" cartridges. Note that filtration is parallel so you must use three cartridges of the same porosity (or you can use Cartridge Blanks in one or two of the ports).

  • Jet05 Centrifugal Pump is sufficient for these housings.
  • Cartridge Housing Manual and Parts
  • Bleed/Blowout Valve. The small valve at the top of the filter is used to bleed air from the housing during startup. The same valve can be used to blowout the product at the end of filtration (attach a gas hose).
  • 2nd Pressure Gauge: It is the pressure difference between inlet/outlet that indicates the cartridge needs to be replaced or cleaned. However, the outlet pressure will be nearly zero if you are filtering into an open tank. Therefore, a single pressure gauge will suffice in this application. If you are filtering into a closed or restricted system, then you will need a pressure gauge on both sides of the filter.

Outlet of cartridge housing is the center hole. In other words, the filtration direction is always from outside of filter to center.

Cartridge Blanks--these permit the use of the triple housing with one (or two) cartridges. Simply plug the unused port(s) with blank(s).

Sight Glass: A sight glass can be used at any point in the filter system. It is used to simply indicate when filtration begins or ends. Click here for sight glasses. These units are 1.5" TriClamp.

Housing bell polish: RA=8 micron-inch (inside and outside). Base polish: RA= 25 micron-inch. These values were measured by St. Patrick's with our Surface Roughness Analyzer.

Sanitary Gauge.
Glycerin filled diaphragm. Do not remove the base from the gauge.
Glycerin filled casing. The purpose of the glycerin is to prevent needle chatter. There will be a bubble in the glycerin.

Letina 40x40 Plate-and-Frame Filters

  • Inlet/outlet buttefly valves, pressure gauges, sight glasses, sample taps included
  • All units come with sanitary piping which provides input to both top and bottom of filter. (also outlet). This provides faster and more efficient filtration than some competitive brands.
  • Noryl plates--steam sterilizable
  • drip tray with drain valve
  • TriClamp connections
  • 304 stainless steel

Lenticular vs Plate-and-Frame. A Lenticular Filter is an alternative to Plate-and-Frame. They do exactly the same thing. Lenticular is an enclosed bell-shaped filter.
Lenticular filter media (stacked discs) cost 13 TIMES MORE than the same sheets for plate-and-frame. As an example, 40 sheets of 40x40 cost ~$15 vs $200 for lenticular stack of equivalent area. We do not offer lenticular filters because their enormous media cost makes then inadvisable for beer/wine production.

You need this if you wish to do coarse filtration followed by fine in same pass.
Complete with two Noryl end plates, stainless steel plate, and gaskets.

$275 in stock
Allows use of less plates than the minimum. For example, only 2 sheets with a VF450. It looks identical to the Double Filtration Plate except it does not allow liquid to pass thru.
Complete with two Noryl end plates, stainless steel plate, and gaskets.

Note: You cannot use the Blind Plate with Double Filtration Plate.
