3M High Flow Filter System

The 3M High Flow filter system gives you high flow performance in a compact design and is ideally suited for applications where convenience and ease of use are priorities.

The 3M High Flow filter system uses 3M Innovation and 3M Purification Inc.’s extensive filtration experience to enable flow rates up to 85 GPM in a single cartridge. The Compound Radial Pleat design packs significantly higher usable surface areas per unit volume than can be achieved with conventional pleated cartridge filters.
