Osmio Water stock a huge range of sediment filters for a wide variety of applications. These include depth filtration (spun-bonded, resin-bonded, string wound) and surface filtration (pleated cartridges, stainless steel pleated cartridges) as well as bag filters (stainless steel and polypropylene).
Pleated filters are considered the best method for filtering dirt, sand, silt and sediment or as a pre-filter for a larger system. These outperform other depth type sediment filter elements because they have dramatically increased surface area, which means they deliver much longer life. Lower pressure drop (another significant advantage of pleated filters) allows for increased flow rates and the use of smaller filter housings to reduce equipment costs. Further savings are provided because our 100% synthetic filter media is cleanable, five micron and up, to lower cartridge replacement costs.
Sediment depth filters (spun or melt blown) are generally spun polypropylene sediment depth filters, which in reality, are gradient density filters in that the outer layers trap larger particles so that the inside layers are more efficient. They are often called “melt blown” or “spun poly” filters. These filters are generally used in reverse osmosis pre-treatment, food and beverage, microelectronics, and many other applications. Made out of 100% pure polypropylene, a spun polypropylene filter is suitable for any potable water application, including high-purity. There are no glues, binders or additives that can cause side effects in water processing applications.
