Flowmatic Flow-Max® Filter Cartridges

Get more filtration for the money with Flow-Max® pleated cartridges for
high flow, long life, greater sediment removal and reduced filtration costs.

Flow-Max filter cartridges outperform wound, spun, melt blown, resin bonded, and other "depth" type filter elements because our cartridges are pleated to provide increased surface area and longer life.

Lower pressure drop is another significant advantage, using Flow-Max pleated cartridges, which allows for increased flow rates and use of smaller filter housings to reduce equipment costs.

Further savings are provided because our 100% synthetic filter media is cleanable, five micron and up, to lower cartridge replacement costs.

Flow-Max filter cartridges outperform other pleated elements because our higher-performance filter media is synthetically produced using 100% synthetic fibers, with no binders or additives to leave a residue or foam.

Our filter media is dramatically thicker than other products. For this reason, Flow-Max cartridges provide "depth" filtration for greater sediment removal, along with more surface area with our improved pleated design and media.

Lower Pressure Drop for Higher Flow Rates

Flow-Max® cartridges are pleated, so initial pressure drop is significantly less compared to depth cartridges, such as wound, spun, melt blown and resin bonded. As a result, higher flow rates are possible, reducing filter housing size requirements to lower capital equipment costs.

Use the pressure drop charts shown below to help determine the ideal flow rate for your particular application:

Depth cartridge (5 µ)
Flow-Max® cartridge (5 µ)
Standard cartridges (9¾")
Full-Flow (B-B) cartridges
Jumbo cartridges
Note: Pressure drop data shown above include filter housing and cartridge.

Washable and Reusable

Flow-Max® cartridges are washable and reusable, five micron and up to reduce filtration costs. For best results, direct spray into pleats to dislodge sediment. Or, let dry and brush off filter cake from surface of the media.

All Flow-Max® cartridges are individually shrink wrapped for purity
