Bottled Water Particulate Control
Critical to the absolute purity of the finished product is bottled water particulate control and filtration at every stage, including prefiltration of raw water as it enters the process.
Filters with Ultipleat® Configuration
Profile® filters with Ultipleat configuration ensure absolute purity of the finished products’ filtration at every stage, including prefiltration of raw water as it enters the process.
Profile filters with Ultipleat configuration use continuous Profile membrane in a proprietary crescent-shaped pleat structure. A patented spiral wrap is attached to each pleat to allow for uniform flow through every pleat. The benefit of the Ultipleat configuration is a reduced pressure drop (as low as one-fifteenth that of conventional depth filters) and a higher flow rate which results in unsurpassed filter service life.
Benefits of Pall Filters with Ultipleat Construction
- Uniform flow distribution with Ultipleat construction, which can provide a longer service life.
- Patented spiral wrap bonded to each pleat maintains uniform flow through pleats and prevents pleat collapse and bunching.
- Longer life than many pleated polypropylene membrane filters, resulting in lower costs and reduced change-outs.
- Higher flow rate and lower differential pressure than pleated and depth media capacity.
High Flow Filters with Ultipleat Construction
Pall has addressed the need for an economical and reliable particulate filter system designed for high flow applications—a solution that eliminates having to settle for the traditional systems, bag filters or cartridge filters that truly do not meet all process requirements. Pall Profile and Ultipor (resin-bonded glass fiber) filters are available in an Ultipleat high flow filter configuration. These products combine the benefits of the membrane (resin-bonded glass fiber or Profile) and the Ultipleat crescent-shaped pleat geometry into a design that allows for flows up to 500 GPM per cartridge.
Ultipleat high flow filters utilize a 6-inch diameter and a 40-60 inch length to maximize the ratio between surface area and cross-sectional area and minimize core pressure drop. The flow direction is in to out so that contaminants can be collected inside the filter for easy disposal. The filters are coreless, all-plastic construction to minimize waste-disposal costs. Micron ratings from 2 to 20 microns are available.
The Ultipleat High Flow filter design allows for a smaller footprint with fewer filters to change out.
