MICROFILTRATION PRODUCTS
What is a Pleated Filter?
Molded core gives
mechanical strength

Filter layer(s), one or Molded cage


more, provide effective protects against
filtration area physical damage

Pleat support and


drainage layers give
strength and minimize
pressure loss

End cap melt-


sealed to filter
