3M™ High Flow HFR Series Retrofit Filter Cartridge

Compatible with third-party inside-to-outside flow housings.

3M™ High Flow HFR Series Filter Cartridges feature our Advanced Pleat Technology (APT) with wide pleated filters to maximise the usable filtration area for an increased flow capacity and a long filter life for numerous applications. The result is a higher flow rate with fewer filters for a more sustainable solution. The robust O-ring reduces the chance of fluid bypass. 3M’s tightly controlled specifications during the manufacturing process create a filter media with absolute-rated particle retention characteristics.

Constructed of a polypropylene microfiber media, 3Mpleated filter cartridges have a uniform matrix, effluent quality and a high particle removal efficiency throughout the filter life. The lofted media design helps prevent premature blinding of the filter’s outer surface, promoting fuller utilisation of the media, resulting in an optimum combination of particle removal efficiency and contaminant holding capability.

Ideal for a wide range of industrial filtration applications, the 3M™ High Flow HFR Series Microfiber Filter Media is optimised for use in process water applications containing organic contaminants, as well as particulates. 3M™ High Flow HFR Series Filter Cartridges are available in 6 distinct absolute micron ratings ranging from 5 to 100 microns and 3 integral lengths, 20, 40 and 60 inches, to fit third-party filter housings. All filter components are thermally bonded to provide a structurally integral filter. No resins, binders or adhesives are used in the manufacturing process.
