We designed CUNO™ CTG-Klean System Filter Pack with 3M™ Micro Klean™ RT Series Cartridge as part of a totally enclosed system that uses a separate pressure vessel and disposable filter pack to isolate the product being filtered from the housing. It reduces time, labor and operator exposure to impurities and cleaning solvents involved with filter change-outs and cleaning of conventional housings.
The CUNO™ CTG-Klean System was designed with versatility in mind to accommodate a wide variety of filter media, and offers compatibility with a range of fluids to meet a variety of process requirements. Our line of 3M™ Micro Klean™ RT series filters cartridge’s coreless, rigid structure provides consistent and reproducible contaminant reduction.
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 found in conventional melt-blown 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.
Our robust 3M™ Micro-Klean RT™ Series Filter captures and retains contaminant within its rigid filter matrix, even under increasing differential pressure. Unlike soft meltblown and string-wound filters that require core support, our 3M™ Micro-Klean RT™ Series Filter is self-supporting and is grooved to extend its surface area. The extended surface area helps prevent premature blinding of the outer surface by large particles and gels, and promotes fuller utilization of the depth-matrix. The result is long filter life.
Streamlined, Long-Life, High-Performance
Our cartridge pack design reduces the extensive time and labor 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 CUNO™ CTG-Klean Systems the clear choice for cost-effective filtration. In some applications, hold up volume can be recovered from the system and used filter packs can be capped and stored for repeated use, lowering costs.
