Standard String Wound Sediment Filter Cartridge


This standard size cartridge is compatible within standard 10” housings/filter systems.

The micron rating of a filter cartridge determines the ability of the filter’s media to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to. For example, a filter that is marked or rated “20 micron” has some capability to capture particles as small as 20 micrometers. Although, the micron rating does not determine the exact efficiency of contaminant holding capability of the filter, it will help you determine which filter is most suitable according to your water supply.

Filtration Process

A String Wound filter cartridge is manufactured from surfactant-free polypropylene string over a polypropylene core. The large void volume design offers low-cost, reliable filtration performance with high contaminant holding capacity.

These sediment filters are compatible with most liquids and are highly effective for sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae removal.

Replacement of this cartridge is recommended approximately every 6 months, dependent on usage and the water quality.
