Polyfil™ Junior

Absolute Rated Pleated Polypropylene Cartridge Filters Small-Scale Applications

A range of absolute rated cartridge filters from Porvair Filtration Group, designed for retrofitting into existing Junior-style housings. Featuring the latest developments in meltblown polypropylene filter media technology, Polyfil™ Junior cartridges are based on a robust all polypropylene construction, offering removal ratings from 0.5 to 105 micron absolute.

Features and Benefits

  • Guaranteed removal ratings
    Polyfil™ Junior cartridges are validated using the recognised industry standard modified OSU-F2 single pass test to Beta 5000 (99.98% efficiency).

Effective Filtration Area

Up to 0.15m2 (1.6ft2) per 136mm module (depending on pore rating).

Applications

Polyfil™ Junior cartridges provide absolute filtration where reproducibility and consistency of performance are critical. Suitable for the filtration of aqueous and organic liquids, Polyfil™ Junior cartridges can be used as prefilters or final filters in the following applications:

  • Small-scale biopharmaceuticals
  • Opthalmic solutions
  • Electronics and semiconductors
  • Small-scale fine chemicals
  • Pilot-scale studies
  • Inks and coatings

Clean Water Flow Rates

  • Typical clean water flow rate:
    A 136mm (5”) Polyfil™ Junior cartridge exhibits the flow-ΔP characteristics indicated below, for solutions with a viscosity of 1 centipoise.
