Crimped Filter Elements

Crimped Construction Stainless Filter Elements

Crimped construction, usually used in applications for batch processing, is a process particularly applicable for Industrial Process Cartridges. Industrial process cartridges,with a lightweight core and a support ring, are typically pleated or cylindrical (wrapped) .Our cartridges are produced of stainless steel using crimping and welding, instead of using brazing or epoxy bonding to overcome the temperature and compatibility limitations of cellulose or synthetic fiber cartridges.Our crimped construction stainless cartridges are cleanable, reusable and can withstand various pressures up to 60 PSI (300 PSID elements are also available) because entirely made of 304 or 316 stainless steel. These cartridges are also good up to 500°F (260°C) instead of the usual 250° F. Our filters are also not affected by common corrosive fluids. Particle retention can be as fine as 5um.  So as to increase surface area, element media can be pleated. To prevent pleat collapse, cartridges rated at 100um or finer have an underlying support layer of coarser stainless steel mesh .
SINFTFILTER elements are well restored to service by back flushing, ultrasonic or other nonabrasive cleaning techniques. This is particularly valuable and cost-effective in applications involving hazardous fluids. Costs are significantly reduced because our elements are cleanable disposal .
