What is Filter Cartridge?
Filter Cartridge is considered the heart of filter; it is inserted inside the housing and used to remove the contaminant/particles from water.The fluid enters from the inlet nozzle of housing and with the help of pressure, the fluid enters the cartridges which separates the contaminant/particles from the fluid.The contaminant gets deposited on the surface of filter cartridge and clear fluid passes through the outlet nozzle. Filter Cartridges are also known as Filter Consumables, Filter Elements, and Filter Candles

There are two categories of Filtration, viz Surface filtration and Depth Filtration.
Surface filters do not let the solids/contaminants enter through the medium. They restrict them outside the filter media. Depth filters trap all the contaminants, pollutants and solids within the media.Depth filters remove particulate matter via a tortuous path. The fluid travels racially through the depth of the cartridge.
Depth cartridges normally have a graded Basic Of Filtrations • density. They have larger openings at their surface and smaller openings near their center
A depth filter will work better when the particulate matter has abroad range of sizes and the filter truly has gradient density. A surface filter will work better when the particulates matter in the water are of the same size.
Examples of Surface filter cartridges are Pleated filter cartridge, cellulose filter cartridges.
Examples of Depth filter cartridges are String wound, ceramic and sintered filter cartridges.

Cartridge filters are used inside the casing/housing in order to remove unwanted particles/contaminants from liquid/air. Cartridge is considered the heart of a filter unit. The cartridge filters are available of two types, viz. depth filters and surface filters. the surface filter does not allow passage of suspended solids and contaminants but instead restricts the particles on the surface via its thin layers. Depth filters, consist of multiple layers or thicker media that, when fluid passes through it, retain suspended solids within the media.
Cartridge filters are available of different diameters and length. They can be mounted inside a housing vertically or horizontally. The cartridges are inserted inside a housing via a rod, those cartridges are of double open end type. The cartridges which can be fit inside a tubesheet via locking mechanism are single open end type (single o ring and double o-ring type).These cartridges are available of filtration rating 0.2 – 2000 micron.
Cartridge filters are available both of cleanable and disposable type. Disposable type cartridges are Polypropylene spun bonded, Polypropylene wound type and Polypropylene pleated type which are available of different heights and micron rating. Reusable type filter cartridges are made up of Stainless steel wire mesh filter media and sintered filter media. Polypropylene spun filter cartridges are manufactured through a process that thermally bonds pure polypropylene microfibres with lower density.
Spun bonded filter cartridges can be used as a prefilter or final filter for industrial, chemical process, pharma, food/beverage,cosmetics,water and other applications. These cartridges are available of filtration rating from 1 – 100 micron. These cartridges are of DOE and SOE type.
Polypropylene wound filter cartridges are made up of polypropylene fibres. They are manufactured using a high speed continuous wind process that creates depth filtration from outer to the inner core. Fluid flows from outside to inside through filter media and the particulates are held securely in the filter matrix. The applications of these cartridges are pre filter for ultra pure water, filter for mineral water, acid filtration, oils, etc.
Polypropylene pleated filter cartridges are made up of pleated PP media with hard PP core and cage. They are used in a variety of applications like food, pharma, air, gas and other demanding process industries. These are available of filtration rating from 0.2 – 70 micron. These cartridges are available both of DOE and SOE type.
PTFE Pleated filter cartridges are made of polytetrafluoroethylene media, the end cap MOC of this is Polypropylene. These are available both of DOE and SOE type and of filtration rating 0.2, 0.45 and 1 micron. The applications are sterilization, vent filter, gas purification, etc.
Stainless steel filter cartridges are used in high temperature applications where synthetic media cannot work.These cartridges are available in MOC of SS 304, SS 316,SS 316 L.These cartridges are in sintered form, pleated form and wrap form.These cartridges can be washed and reused again.
