Multicartridge filters combine all the advantages of cartridge filters with even greater efficiency. They consist of a housing made of steel and replaceable cartridges. The filtered medium flows from the outside to the inside of the cartridge, so that dirt is retained on the outer surface of the cartridge. Multicartridge filters can be used for both gas and liquid filtration.
Cartridges are available, both disposable and reusable. Disposable cartridges include polypropylene and membrane cartridges, while reusable cartridges include steel, mesh and slotted cartridges that can be cleaned.
Depending on the filtration efficiency, we can divide the cartridges into three series: economical (efficiency about 85-90%), nominal (efficiency 95%), absolute (efficiency 99.9%). Available filtration accuracies range from 0.5 to 100 microns.
