Pleated Filters

Pleated filters are the best method for filtering dirt, sand, silt and sediment or can be used as a pre-filter for a high volume system.  Pleated filter cartridges are available in cellulose, polyester, and cellulose-polyester blend. These outperform other depth type sediment filter elements because they have dramatically increased surface area, which means they deliver much longer life. Lower pressure drop (another significant advantage of pleated filters) allows for increased flow rates and the use of smaller filter housings to reduce equipment costs. They are most appropriate for use when high efficiency filtration and economy are crucial.
