Enhance Filtration with 3M High Flow Filter Systems

Discover the Efficiency of 3M Filtration Solutions

3M High Flow filter Systems offer outstanding high flow performance in a compact design, making them the ideal choice for applications where convenience and ease of use are top priorities.

3M's advanced filter systems leverage 3M Innovation and the extensive filtration experience of 3M Purification Inc., enabling flow rates of up to 500 GPM in a single cartridge. The innovative Compound Radial Pleat design provides significantly higher usable surface areas per unit volume compared to conventional pleated cartridge filters.

Experience the Benefits of 3M High Flow Filter Systems

The 3M High Flow Filter Systems offer a range of features that make them a superior choice for filtration needs. These filter systems are designed with user convenience in mind, featuring an ergonomically designed handle and a unique "twist-to-lock" seating mechanism that ensures easy operation and maintenance of the filter system. These systems are well-suited for a wide range of applications, including many OEM applications.

Materials and Construction:

Each grade of the 3M High Flow Filter Cartridge is crafted from melt-blown FDA-compliant polypropylene microfiber media. This construction provides not only high particle reduction efficiency but also broad chemical compatibility. What sets these filters apart is the absence of adhesives, binders, surfactants, or lubricants in the manufacturing process.

Operating Conditions:

Maximum Operating Temperature 160°F (71°C)
Maximum Forward Differential Pressure 50 psid @ 68°F (3.4 bar @ 20°C)
Recommended Change-out Pressure 35 psid @ 68°F (2.4 bar @ 20°C)

Features of 3M High Flow Filter Systems

  • High flow capability of up to 500 GPM per cartridge, reducing filter usage and minimizing product loss, labor, disposal costs, operator exposure, and downtime for filter change-outs.
  • Patent Pending Compound Radial Pleat design, offering high loading capacity for long-lasting and cost-effective filtration.
  • Compact design that minimizes capital expense requirements and reduces the system's footprint due to its smaller housing.
  • Absolute rating, ensuring reproducible effluent quality throughout the filter's lifespan.
  • Easy-to-Use features, with no special tools or hardware required for filter change-outs, minimizing downtime. The unique "twist-to-lock" seating mechanism provides a positive seal, and the ergonomically designed handle facilitates easy cartridge installation and removal.
  • FDA compliant, making it suitable for a wide range of food and beverage applications.

3M High Flow Filter Systems Product Details

  • 3M High Flow Series Filter Housings are 33% to 50% smaller in housing size, providing a better appearance and fit compared to competitively sized and flow-rated housings.
  • A robust cartridge center-post design eliminates bulky support plates, providing easy access to housing internals.
  • Convenient cover designs enable easy element change-outs.
  • Manufactured from carbon steel, 304, or 316L stainless steel, offering effective corrosion protection.
  • ASME Code design ensures high quality and performance standards.

3M High Flow Series Filter Housings are specifically designed to deliver all the benefits of filtration in a compact footprint. You can choose from standard designs or customizable configurations to suit your specific needs. All standard 3M High Flow Series Filter Housings are designed, manufactured, tested, and code-stamped in accordance with ASME Section VIII, Division 1.

3M High Flow Series Filter Housings are 33% to 50% smaller than competitively sized housings for a given flow rate. Fewer filters and user-friendly housing designs mean faster, easier change-outs than competitively sized systems. These filter housings are available in various sizes to accommodate up to 7 filter elements in both 40-inch and 60-inch lengths. Our horizontal design option maximizes ease of operation, while our vertical design minimizes the system's footprint.

Designed with user-friendliness in mind, 3M housings streamline processes and reduce servicing time. Removable cartridge posts make cleaning easy, helping maintain cleaner systems and longer product life while reducing service time. Shouldered seal plates fit securely into the cartridge core, preventing bypass, leaks, and maintaining system pressure. Housing drains for both sludge and clean chambers feature drain couplings for easy draining, and an air vent facilitates effective venting before start-up or draining.
