Profile® A/S Series Filter Elements
Profile® A/S Series filters1 are constructed of an all polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) filter medium with 316 stainless steel cores as standard. The elements have an absolute rated downstream section, and a continuously profiled pore size upstream section, which increases service life many-fold. Note the photomicrograph below. The elements are available in a broad range of absolute removal ratings. Refer to Table 1. (more
The fibers in Profile A/S filters are continuous, for practical purposes. No binder resin or surfactants are used and the fibers are “bonded” by intertwining during the manufacturing process. The filter components meet the specifications for biological tests listed in the current revision of USP for Class VI plastics at 121°C. Because of the inertness of the polyphenylene sulfide medium, Profile A/S elements can be used with many fluids up to 400°F(205°C). Please refer to Table 2 for more details.
