Stainless Steel Filter Cartridges
Fit most cartridge-type housings in the field
Overcome the temperature and compatibility limitations of fabric or synthetic fiber cartridges by replacing them with these stainless steel wire cloth elements.
They’re good up to 500ºF instead of the usual 250ºF, and they are unaffected by most caustic fluids.
Made entirely of 304 or 316 stainless steel, they are cleanable and reusable, and can withstand differential pressures up to 60 psi. (500 psid units are also available.) You can choose particle retention ratings as fine as 5 microns.
Element surfaces can be plain cylindrical, or pleated to increase surface area. Pleated units rated 100 microns or finer have an underlying support layer of coarser mesh to prevent pleat collapse. Fabrication is by welding and crimping; no silver brazing or epoxy bonding is used.
Standard End Configurations
Rosedale seals are not glued onto the cartridge ends as is commonly done. Instead, they are specially shaped to hold in place mechanically, like a grommet. There’s little chance they will be dislodged and lost in handling. They are made in different thicknesses to provide seven different standard overall element lengths.
Pleat protectors prevent accidental denting of pleat forms that reduce filter area. Made of stainless steel with 1/4-in. dia. perforations, they are held in place by bending tabs at the top and bottom. When ordering give nominal length (10, 20, or 30 inches) and material (304 or 316 stainless steel).
