Typical Filtration Overview
Stage-1 : This initial filtration element is typically a Polyspun type of cartridge which offer excellent value and remove particulate down to 0.5µm. This primary filter is typically replaced every 3 months and protects the second stage (2) filter from premature loading.
Stage-2 : This initial filtration element is typically a Polyspun type of cartridge which offer excellent value and remove particulate down to 0.3µm. This primary filter is typically replaced every 3 months and protects the third stage (A) filter from premature loading.
Stage-A : This cartridge element is typically a Pleated Polypropylene type of cartridge which offers near absolute removal of particulate down to 0.2µm. This second stage filter is critical to protect the final stage filter from premature loading.
Stage B : This cartridge element is typically a Polyethersulfone 0.2µm Absolute rated cartridge meaning that all waterborne bacteria is retained in the filter, providing sterile water to the equipment. This cartridge typically has a 222 sanitary double o-ring connection to ensure no bypass of water past the filter.
