3M™ 700 Series Filter Cartridges offer high efficiency outside-to-inside flow designed for industrial applications with high contaminant removal requirements, including oil and gas purification. With a large filtration surface area, these radial pleated filters have a high dirt loading capacity and long filter life to help save you time and money with fewer filter cartridges and change-outs.

Save time with ergonomic handle for easier and faster change-outs

3M™ 700 Series Filter Cartridges

Outside-to-inside flow with high contaminant capacity.

With a polypropylene filter construction that offers broad chemical compatibility, the 3M™ 700 Series Filter Cartridges are an excellent solution for your industrial filtration operations including process water, bottled water, ground water, well injection and produced water, chemicals, machine coolants and food and beverages.

  • Achieve high efficiency with reduced disposal costs
    Chemical compatibility.

    The polypropylene filter construction gives 3M™ 700 Series Filter Cartridges a broad chemical compatibility so they can be used for a wide range of industrial applications.

  • Increase confidence with reduced risk of improper seals and bypass
    Ergonomic design.

    Filter change-outs are quick and easy and do not require any special tools or hardware.

  • High-capacity filtration performance in a large cartridge format for longer life and fewer cartridge change-outs
    High contaminant capacity.

    The radial pleated microfiber media design optimises the surface area of the filter cartridges, resulting in a low flux and high dirt loading capacity.

  • For use in process fluid & industrial water, oil & gas, food & beverage
    Suitable for food contact applications.

    3M™ 700 Series Filter Cartridges are also intended for use in Food and Beverage (F&B) applications. For details related to the specific use conditions or limitations for food contact applications please contact your 3M representative for more information.

Choose between 3M™ 740 Filter Cartridges or 3M™ 720 Filter Cartridges depending on your industrial filtration needs. 3M 740 series cartridges are used in filter housings that accept a 6.5 inch/165 mm outer diameter, 226 O-ring connections and are available in 40 inch/1010 mm and 30 inch/760 mm length filter cartridges. 720 series cartridges are used in filter housings that accept 7 inch/180 mm outer diameter, 226 O-ring connections and are available in 28 inch/710 mm length filter cartridges. Polypropylene microfiber forms the basis of the filtration media we use in the 700 series filter cartridges. Our manufacturing processes allow for tightly controlled specifications resulting in a filter media with consistent and predictable particle retention characteristics. Polypropylene provides broad chemical compatibility for use in a variety of applications.

We produce 740 series cartridges in two configurations – “B” and “K.” The “B” versions contain the maximum amount of filter media surface area for those applications where high contaminant holding capacity is needed. The “K” versions contain an optimised amount of filter media surface area (60% - 70% of ‘B” versions) for those applications that benefit from a low unit cost filter design. In “B” and “K” versions, the microfiber media is pleated in a compound radial design that optimises the usable surface area of the filter cartridges. The 740 series cartridges also incorporate polypropylene end caps, outer sleeves and cores to protect the pleat structure and provide durability. A double O-ring seal helps reduce the risk of fluid bypass. Work with your local distributor to find the appropriate filter and housing for your application.
