3M™ CUNO™ CTG-Klean System Filter Pack with Micro-Klean™ RT Series Cartridge is part of our enclosed system that uses a separate pressure vessel and disposable filter pack to isolate the product to be filtered from the housing.
Use 3M™ CUNO™ CTG-Klean System Filter Pack with Micro-Klean™ RT Series Cartridge to reduce the amount of labour and operator exposure to impurities and cleaning solvents involved with filter change-outs and cleaning of conventional housings.
Advancing Depth Filtration
Our filter’s rigid construction provides consistent performance and extended service life. Consistent filtration throughout the service life of a depth-style filter depends on how well the filter’s structure tolerates fluctuations in operating conditions – including contaminant loading and differential pressure. Flexible structures, such as soft meltblown and string-wound filters, tend to compress and change porosity with increased pressure, while rigid structures do not. Media compression can result in short filter life because the pores collapse and ultimately close. Media compression can also cause the filter to release already held particles.
3M™ Micro-Klean™ RT Series Cartridge captures and retains contaminant within its rigid filter matrix, even under increasing differential pressure. In addition, the depth filter structure of the cartridge provides a significant increase in contaminant holding capacity and flow capacity at a given pressure. Unlike soft meltblown and string-wound filters that require core support, our cartridge is self-supporting and is grooved to provide more than twice the surface area of ungrooved cartridges. The extended surface area prevents premature blinding of the outer surface by large particles and gels, and promotes fuller utilisation of the depth-matrix – resulting in significantly longer filter life.
The cartridge's extended service life results in fewer filter change-outs while its enhanced flow characteristics can typically reduce the number of filters required to achieve a given flow rate. These combined features can significantly reduce total filtration costs.
Go with the flow
The cartridge pack design reduces the time and labour involved with filter change-outs and cleaning of conventional housings, thereby reducing operator exposure to product cleaning solvents. This streamlined system, coupled with high performance, long-life filters, make 3M CUNO CTG-Klean System Filter Pack with Micro-Klean RT Series Cartridge the clear choice for user- friendly and cost-effective filtration.
