Ultipleat® High Flow Filter Systems: Payback Calculator

Pall Corporation, the world’s largest filtration and separations company, has addressed your need for an economical and reliable filter system for high flow applications. With the introduction of Pall’s Ultipleat® High Flow filter system, you no longer have to settle for the traditional bag or cartridge filter systems that don’t fully meet all of your requirements.

Smaller, more economical filter systems

The Ultipleat High Flow filter system is a natural extension of our patented Ultipleat filter technology. We have taken this proven technology to another level in order to achieve even higher flow rates per filter cartridge. In fact, just one six inch diameter Ultipleat High Flow filter element can handle up to 500 gpm/1900 lpm. The filter’s unique crescent-shaped pleat geometry combined with its large diameter and proprietary range of available filter media, allows you to use significantly fewer elements and smaller housings for high flow rate applications. You can now achieve greater performance in a system that is 2 to 4 times smaller than conventional depth or pleated filter technologies. Smaller systems are less costly to install and maintain (see Figure 1).

Lower waste disposal costs

On a filter changeout basis, you will have up to 4 times less volume of spent Ultipleat High Flow filters to dispose of versus conventional depth filters (see Figure 2). Your waste disposal costs savings will be even greater when you factor in the longer service life that the Ultipleat High Flow filters will provide. Because of its coreless construction and inside to outside flow configuration, the Ultipleat High Flow filter can be tightly compacted to even further minimize disposal volumes and costs. Since no metallic components are used, the filter is even incinerable. The custom support cage for the filter is built into the vessel and is reusable.

Lower maintenance costs

Since you will have greater than 30 times fewer filters in smaller filter housings to change out versus conventional depth elements, your maintenance requirements and production downtime will be dramatically reduced (see Figure 3). Furthermore, removal of spent elements is neither difficult nor messy. All of the solid contamination is inside the filter.
