Glass Fiber Filter Cartridge

Glass Fiber Filter Cartridge

Glass fibre cartridges are designed for higher filtration area & high flow rates. Our graded density glass fibre pleated filter cartridges are perfect blend for filtration of liquids, as it has reducing pore sizes. The physical and chemical properties of glass fibres are ideally suited for their use, as a fabric filter media. In addition, they have endurance to high thermal shock outstanding dimensional stability, excellent moisture resistance, high surface area – to – weight ratio & chemical resistance.


The SSF series is a borosilicate glass fibre filter cartridge, which has been especially made for industrial application and oil industry. It is used for fine clarification of different types of oils, water, dyes and solvents. The cartridge is designed to work, up to temperatures of 80°C and a maximum differential up to pressure drop of 2 bars. The available micron ratings are 1M, 2M, 5M & 10M and are absolute rated.

They have a huge advantage over PP Pleated filter cartridges as they are absolute rated at the given micron rating and have high dirt holding capacity due to sub – micron fibre diameter.

The main factor distinguishing PP and GF filter elements is the ability of glass fibre cartridge to withhold the dirt till the desired pressure drop due to much larger dirt holding capacity, as supposed to PP cartridges, which start leaving the dirt downstream as the pressure increases.


  • Highest dirt holding capacity.
  • Efficiency ranging more than beta 200 i.e. 99.5%.
  • Gives the required NAS value for oils of 4 & 5.
