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.



CPP Cartridges

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.



CBC Carbon Cartridges

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




BB Pleated Cartridges

These polyester pleated cartridges are designed to fit the Big Blue style plastic housings. They are

used throughout manufacturing processes for high volume and high cake removal. The cartridges

are used in municipal and residential building for particle removal for an economical cost. The

micron sizes are 1,5,10,20 and 50 micron and come in either 10? or 20? length.



SCN Pleated Filter Cartridges

SCNPleatedCartridge.jpg - small 

SCN cartridges are polypropylene construction with gasket Double Open Ends. They are available in a

selection of lengths and micron ratings from 0.2 micron to 60 micron. Polypropylene media is superior to polyester as it has a better filtration efficiency. These cartridges are perfect pre-filters to membrane filters and are extensively used in water treatment applications. These are our economical range and are Nominal rated.



SPN Pleated Filter Cartridges

SPNPleatedCartridge.jpg - small 

This pleated polypropylene cartridge is available in Double Open Ended or with various end caps to suit many types of stainless steel filter housings. They are approx. 90% efficient at the rated micron rating and are employed either as pre-treatment to RO or as a final filter. Many 0.2 micron cartridges are used for Bottled Water applications and even Biodiesel production. Hospitals use SPN and PES grade filters for Endoscope Filtration.




SPA Pleated Filter Cartridges

 SPAPleatedCartridge.png - small

Absolute rated pleated filter cartridges for effective sediment removal down to 0.45 microns. Many of the 10? long cartridges are used to produce boutique beers and wine clarification. They are also used to produce chemicals used in the pharmaceutical industry and a high grade of water for food manufacture. They are better than 99.9% efficient for removal of particulate.



PES Membrane filter Cartridges

For Wine production, bottle washing, beer, pharmaceutical products, cosmetic manufacture, these high grade integrity testable cartridges are used extensively throughout Australia. They are now available in 0.1,0.2,0.45,0.65 and 1.2 microns. Silicone gaskets as standard and double wrapped.

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.



P Series Wound Cartridges

 WoundCartridge2.jpg - small

Polypropylene string wound depth cartridge on either a stainless steel or polypropylene core. They are used for operating liquid temperatures up to 80 deg C. They are useful for edible oil filtration and hot water applications. Available in 250mm lengths in 1,5,10,25,50 and 100 micron. In many applications however a SYP cartridge should be considered over the old technology used in these cartridges.



NY- Nylon Filter Cartridges

 NylonPleatedCartridge.png - small

Rated to 0.1,0.2 or 0.45 microns. These cartridges are used where PES Membrane is not suitable. They are used in De-ionized water lines and for some food and beverage manufacture. They have a large surface area of 0.84 m2 per 10? length which is approx. 20% more than a PES membrane. This provides a longer service life.



GF -Glass Fibre Filter Cartridges

 GlassFibrePleatedCar1.png - small

These cartridges are used for the precise filtration of fine chemicals with an acid or alkaline make-up.

Also used as a pre-treatment to a sterilizable membrane . They have a low initial pressure drop and a maximum operating temperature of 100 degC. The glassfiber media is available in micron ratings up to 10 microns. An End Style to match the housing used is usually available.



High Flow Large Diameter Filter Cartridges.
