Below is a list of standard Cartridges Pearl Filtration supplies:

Capsule filter cartridges are very small cartridges that are classified as a disposable final filter.

Capsule Filters can be used for small batches of filtering liquids for testing without changing the equipment and lines of established systems. 

Suitable for testing a new variety of wine or testing our quality Cartridges to assure our Filters will perform to our high standard if you choose to change your existing Filter Cartridges to our range for a cost-effective solution.  These capsule Filters are available in all our range of Cartridges including our Polypropylene Cartridges SPA, SPN and our PES Membrane Filter range.   







 CapsuleFilter.png - small

A complete range of self contained filters in materials ranging from Nylon 66, Glass Fibre, PTFE, Polypropylene, PES Membrane are available in various micron ratings. These filters are used for batch production or in for laboratory small scale research. These filters are bought in to order as the range is so large.




 Carbon Filter Cartridges 

CarbonCartridge.jpg - small 

Coconut based Activated Carbon cartridge designed for the reduction of Chlorine and thus improve

the taste of drinking water. Carbon cartridges are also used for de-chlorination of water used for

making foodstuffs and beverages. With lengths up to 1016mm long, they are versatile ideal for low

flowrate applications. The CBC cartridge can be supplied in a larger diameter to fit the Big Blue





Depth filter cartridges are an inexpensive, high efficiency solution that are compatible with many liquids.

SYP PP Depth Cartridges -

SYP.jpg - small

All Polypropylene melt blow cartridge in lengths up to 1016mm long, these cartridges are ideal for

the filtration of water compatible chemicals and potable water treatment. Each cartridge has a

filtration efficiency better than 95% and are used as pretreatment before RO or micro filtration.

Being inexpensive they are also used for edible oil filtration.


BBP Cartridges

bbm.jpg - small

All polypropylene depth cartridge designed to fit a Big Blue Cartridge housing. These cartridges are

suitable for domestic water filtration as well as general process water for manufacturing process.

The cartridge is cheap and often used to protect a downstream carbon filter. Available in either 10?

or 20? length.


Pearl Filtration is a quality supplier of Melt Blown Depth Filter Cartridges.  The advantages of these are that they are inexpensive, their graded depth characteristics ensure a longer service life, they have higher efficiency ratings than non-melt blown cartridges with filtration from 0.5 - 120 microns, and the Polypropylene micro-fibre material is compatible with many liquids.



Synopex SYP filter cartridges are a graded density melt blown polypropylene depth filters.  Their solid structure removes the need for an inner core and top and bottom gasket.  These are replacements to wound string cartridges and spongy spun bonded cartridges. Graded density means that particles are trapped within the structure, rather than just on the surface, resulting in both long life and excellent particle retention.   Made from FDA approved materials, SYP cartridges are the ideal pre-filter.  Click here for futher details: Page 1    Technical specifications:  Page 2


Other Depth Cartridges available are the above Polypropylene Depth Cartridges, however we also get a lot of orders for String Wound Depth Cartridges.

They should be protected by a pre-filter as their purpose is to produce a microbe free liquid as

opposed to a particle free liquid offed by polypropylene cartridges.



PES Membrane Filter Cartridges are available for the highest quality stabilisation and sterilisation purposes.  They use state of the art  polyethersulphone membrane technology.  PES is naturally hydrophillic with good chemical compatability and low extractables, making them ideal for purifed water, Wine, Beer and beverages. A DE-I water rinsed grade is available for pharmaceutical applications.  They are available as

0.1 0.2,0.45,0.65 and 1.2 microns.  PES membrane is  100% integrity testable.

Pearl Filtration CPPL polypropylene pleated cartridges have been developed as an economical form of liquid clarification.  A pleated cartridge has approximately 11 times the surface area to a depth cartridge and therefore give a longer service life.  The micron rating is also generally easier to control so the filtration efficiecy is better than a depth cartridge.


A pleated polypropylene carridge can therefore provide better value for money than cheap depth cartridges.


CPPL are Low Cost Nominally rated Double Open Ended Cartridges with an outer cage to prevent hydraulic shock and a flat EPDM gasket.  Available in ratings from 0.2 to 30 microns.
