Polypropylene Filters

Polypropylene Filters

Polypropylene is one of the most widely used plastics in industry. It is similar to polyethylene, but is actually tougher, making it especially suitable for demanding applications. It is flexible and resistant to fatigue, which makes it a good engineering plastic. The fact that it is highly heat and chemical resistant makes it the perfect choice for many filtration process components.
Many of the products we supply here at CFS Filtration make use of polypropylene filters due to these properties. It makes a good medium within fully welded bag filters. Bag filter housings are also important in such systems, as corrosion can quickly result in leakage and therefore incomplete filtration. Liquid flow will always take the path of least resistance, so materials which afford a good seal under all conditions are imperative. A unique product we can offer to our customers who make use of such systems is the polypropylene filter housing for bag filters. This dual-use item can also be used as a cartridge housing, and is rated up to 85psi. It will not rust, and boasts excellent strength and chemical compatibility.
Speaking of cartridges, we wholeheartedly recommend Jaguar MP Series models for any process which will accept them. These polypropylene filters make full use of all the material’s inherent advantages, and often provide an economical solution for complex filtration needs. Please note that these are absolute-rated, rather than nominal-rated, products; this means that with Jaguar, you are getting significantly better performance at every level. These top-of-the-range polypropylene filters are available to fit all housings, and will not release fibres into the fluid.
Another area where polypropylene as a material is able to make a huge impact in customers’ processes is when it comes to high-flow filtration. High-flow setups are inevitably demanding because of the pressures involved and because the delicate process of filtration cannot be rushed, which increases the need for volume within the filtration chambers. Polypropylene filters are ideal for such situations as their efficiency will not be compromised due to the increase in pressure. And by specifying polypropylene end caps, installers can be sure that there will be no leakage due to deformation under the volume of fluid. Finally, absolute-rated high-flow polypropylene filters as supplied by CFS Filtration will provide consistent performance for months and years to come, in contrast to inferior types. When you operate a system which processes thousands of gallons of fluid, this reliability adds up to huge savings in terms of time and money.
Polypropylene components are typically formed by extrusion or injection moulding techniques. This allows for special properties or coatings to be applied to the material if necessary. This plastic is therefore suitable for use in the manufacture of piping systems, where it offers minimal contamination and also maximum strength and rigidity. It is also chosen for its resistance to corrosion and chemical leaching, and impact damage at a wide range of temperatures.
