Compax - Conventional Cartridge Filters
Compared to conventional cartridge filters, COMPAX saves you money by lowering operating costs and reducing disposal costs. When comparing filters with the same efficiencies or Beta ratings, nothing outperforms the cost/performance value achieved with COMPAX.
If you are currently using a conventional filter – pleated, depth, molded or string wound, nominal or Beta rated – you can have COMPAX performance without purchasing new filters or modifying existing housings. Whether it is for water, amines, chemicals, hydrocarbons, oils, coolants, inks, paints, or other fluids, for prefiltration or final filtration, there is a COMPAX system that is right for the application.
Performance. Disposability. Cost effectiveness. Whether it is a new filtration application, or upgrading and optimizing a conventional cartridge filter application, COMPAX is the right choice.
The major innovation in COMPAX is its elegant simplicity. It consists of two parts: the COMPAX coreless elements and the reusable core. The reusable COMPAX core is semi-permanently installed into the existing filter vessel without the need for special tools. After installation of the cores, the open end of the COMPAX cartridge slides down over the length of the core and engages a positive sealing O-ring to integrally seal the filter and core together. The reusable cores have standard collapse ratings of 75 or 150 psi, depending on the series and material of construction. Higher collapse ratings are available upon request.
COMPAX coreless filters are available with a broad range of media types and micron ratings to match requirements of the application.
