Top-Pleat Pleated Filter Cartridges
Pleated filter cartridges are surface filters for removing hard, non-deformable particles from a liquid stream. They feature a large filter area, a high dirt holding capacity and consequently a long filtration lifetime.
The sharp cut-off characteristics created by the filter media ensures dependable and highly efficient particle removal at the designated micron rating. Pleated cartridges are therefore widely used as particle size classification filters, as well as being utilised as either final filters or as protection for expensive membrane filter cartridges.
The Top-pleat series is one of the finest ranges of pleated cartridges on market. Consisting of 4 layers of the highest quality filter media, they provide exceptional filter efficiency and lifetime. The constituent filter media has thermobonded fibres to prevent fibre and contaminant release.
The Top-pleat PP is constructed from 100% polypropylene melt blown microfibre media and has a wide range of application suitability. Polypropylene is especially compatible with applications which require filter cartridge sterilisation with caustic soda. They are rated at 95% efficiency at the designated micron rating.
The Top-pleat GF is constructed from borosilicate laboratory grade borosilicate (glass fibre) and incorporates polypropylene pre-filter and final filter layers. Borosilicate is a hydrophilic filter media, providing superior flow and lower pressure drops compared to polypropylene media. The 1 micron version is ideally suited to applications requiring Cryptosporidium and Giardia Cyst removal (certified to NSF/ANSI standard 53 for Cyst reduction). Borosilicate has a natural charge (Z potential) to capture organic matter and retain colloids. Topleat GF cartridges have an efficiency of 99.98% at the designated micron rating.

LV1 Stainless Steel Single Cartridge Housings
The LV1 series single cartridge vessels consist of an investment cast head with 1” BSP (F) inline connections and 1/8” BSP (F) vent, a quick release clamp, and a bowl with ¼” BSP (F) bottom drain. LV1 vessels are produced in four sizes to suit industry standard 10”, 20”, 30” and 40” nominal length filter cartridges. The universal head can be configured to suit double open ended, code 8 (222 o rings/fin) or code 3 (222 o rings / flat) cartridges.
Multi Round Stainless Steel Cartridge Housings
Multi round cartridge vessels feature a universal bottom cup to suit double open ended, code 8 (222 o rings/fin) or code 3 (222 o rings / flat) cartridges. Our vessel design therefore provides versatility – by simply exchanging the cartridge top sealing components, the vessel can be converted to suit either double open ended cartridges or to suit code 3 and 8 cartridges. For use with double open ended cartridges, vessels are provided with a cup and spring component which achieves both top sealing and cartridge core location, and a compression plate.
Plastic Cartridge Housings
Plastic Housings – For applications involving non-aggressive fluids, these are a low cost, small sized single cartridge housings to suit 10″ or 20″ cartridges. They consist of a polypropylene body and screw on lid which forms a leak proof seal by compression of an o ring. The body can either be opaque or clear. 1/2″ – 1 1/2″ BSP screwed inline connections are available as standard. An optional pressure release button is available on the inlet port. Available accessories include spanners and mounting brackets.
