The 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridge is used in industrial, chemical, and utility process applications, available in several micron ratings, offering efficient filtration in the 1 to 20 micron range.
The 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridge is composed of cellulose and micro-fiber filter media. In addition to the mechanical sieving of particles by its depth loading feature, the 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridge further reduces contaminants too small for mechanical exclusion by taking advantage of the particle’s charge. As most particles in suspension are shown to be negatively charged and Zeta Plus A series filter cartridge has a positive charge, contaminants are adsorbed by attaching the negative particle to the positive charge site on the filter. 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridges are available in 8”, 12”, and 16” diameter cartridge sizes, and in removal ratings from 1 to 20 microns.
While the 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridge may be used with a range of industrial solutions and under various operating conditions, extractable levels and other filter properties should be determined and compared with existing standards of acceptance for the particular application in which the filters will be used. Examples of applications in which 3M™ Zeta Plus™ A Series Filter Cartridges are typically used:
