Description and Use
The Purtrex depth filter (Figure 1), is an exceptional value for general applications where long life, high purity and low change-out frequency are required. Produced through GE Water & Process Technologies’ patented melt blown microfiber technology, Purtrex is a 100% pure polypropylene depth filter with exceptional dirt-holding capacity. Purtrex’ true-graded density filter matrix (lower density at the surface of the filter with progressively higher density toward the center) captures particles throughout the entire filter depth. This translates to longer life and fewer change-outs than existing string-wound or resin-bonded filters. Purtrex contains no wetting agents, solvents, antistatic agents or binders, and meets the requirements of the FDA for food and beverage contact. The filter incinerates to trace ash for easy disposal.
Typical Applications
Potable water filtration
Chemical filtration - wide chemical compatibility
Plating baths
Amine Filtration
Meets FDA compliance for food and beverage contact

General Properties
Purtrex filters are available the following absolute pore size micron ratings: 1, 3, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50 and 75 microns. Tables 1, 2, 3 and 4 further details on materials of construction, dimensions, flow performance and ordering information.
Additional Information
Purtrex Depth cartridge filters are made from thermally-bonded fibers of polypropylene. GE certifies that it uses no resin binders, lubricants, antistatic or release agents or other additives in the manufacture of these cartridges, and that the resin used for manufacturing the filter media meets the food contact requirements of the U.S. FDA 21 CFR regulations. When required, specify only FDA compliant sealing materials and end adapters. GE filter cartridges are designed and manufactured for resistance to a wide range of chemical solutions. Conditions will vary with each application and users should carefully verify chemical compatibility. Please contact your GE distributor for more information.
