Profile® II Filter Elements
Available in RF Series, RMF Series and AB Series—Code 3 and Code 7.
The materials of construction - chemically resistant polypropylene – permit application in a very wide range of corrosive and non-corrosive fluids. The fibers in Profile II filters may be considered continuous. No binder resin is used – the fibers are “bonded” by intertwining during the manufacturing process. As a result, Profile II filters show no media migration.
The Profile II filter has numerous applications in a broad range of industries that include chemical, petrochemical, photochemical, pharmaceutical, biological, electronic, magnetic tape, electroplating, food and beverage, cosmetic, veterinary, medical and fermentation industries. They are used as both prefilters and as final filters.
For applications where the filters are heated for any reason above 122°F (50°C) and the temperature is then reduced by 36°F (20°C) or more, AB Series elements are recommended. See Bulletin PRO 400 and PRE-1 for more detailed information.

(1) Air flow used for these data was 20 cfm/10" module, except grade 700, which was run at 4 cfm.
(2) Pressure drop is PSI per GPM for a single 10" module. For multiple elements, divide by number of modules. For fluids other than water, multiply by viscosity in centipoise.
(3) For longer modules, increase the flow rates listed in proportion. The flow rates listed do not take into account pressure losses due to flow in the internal diameter of the element, which becomes significant above about 40 to 60 cfm.
(4) Extrapolated values.
(5) Precise evaluation of the 100% removal efficiency for these coarse grades is not possible with test procedure utilized.
* AB style only.
AB Code 3, 7 and 8 Series configurations. See Bulletin PRO 400 for further details.

Table III. Housings For Profile II Elements
|Type Of Element||Housing Available|
|R F Series and RM F Series||See Housing Data Sheets H2, H13, H14, H15, H16, H17, H18, H19, H36, H37, H38 and H39 for Pall housings specifically designed toaccommodate these elements.|
R F Series elements may also be used with competitor built housings which accommodate 21/2" O.D. x 10", 20", 30", and 40" nominal length elements; however,sealing may be marginal for grades 030 (3µm absolute) and finer.
|AB Y Series, Code 3, 7 and 8||See Housing Data Sheets H22, H26, H28, H29, H30, H31, H32, and H35.|
