The 3M™ Series 100 High Performance Liquid Filter Bag is constructed of polypropylene melt blown microfibres, allowing for very fine particle capture at high efficiencies. All 3M Brand Series 100 Liquid Filter Bags are over 90% efficient at their suggested application rating.
The 3M Series 100 Liquid Filter Bag can also adsorb unwanted trace oils that frequently occur in processed fluids. The high amount of surface area due to the polypropylene microfibre construction, results in oil holding capacities from 10-20 times the filter’s own weight.
