Profile Star filter cartridges are pleated depth filters designed for high particle removal efficiency in food and beverage applications.
The Profile Star filter cartridge combines the advantages of a continuously graded pore structure and a unique pleated geometry to provide an increase in effective filtration area and service life.
The pressure drop and flow capability is comparable to competitive pleated polypropylene filters whilst also providing excellent removal of soft contaminants (e.g. gels) because of the depth of the medium.

The technical information provided is based on controlled laboratory tests done on typical production filters at the conditions described, unless otherwise indicated. Actual operating conditions may affect the filter’s performance.
Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids1
Maximum Differential Pressure
5.0 bard (72 psid) (forward)
<50 °C (122 °F)
3.4 bard (50 psid) (forward)
<80 °C (176 °F)
0.3 bard (5 psid) (forward)
<125 °C (257 °F)
1 Fluids which do not swell, soften or adversely affect any of the filter components
Typical Flow Rates2
2 Typical initial clean delta p per 254 mm (10 inch) cartridge, water at 20 °C (68 °F). For liquids with viscosity greater than 1 cP, multiply the delta p by the viscosity.
Sterilization and Sanitization3
125 °C (257 °F)
Hot Water Sanitization
80 °C (176 °F)
3 For applications requiring in situ sterilization or sanitization Pall recommends the use of Code 7 adaptors to ensure filter sealing after cooling. Cartridges should be cooled to system operating temperature prior to use.
