Our FPC series pleated cellulose cartridges are manufactured from a special formulation of resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester fibers.
This unique blend of materials provides a higher wet strength than regular cellulose cartridges. It also provides high flow rates and dirt-holding capacity, while maintaining extremely low pressure drop.
The media is pleated around a polypropylene core for added strength and the ends are immersed in a thermo-setting vinyl plastisol. Embedding and sealing each end of the pleat block in this fashion fuses the components together forming a unified endcap and gasket.
FPC series cartridge endcaps feature a color-coding system for easy identification of micron ratings: Tan (1-micron), White (5-micron), Blue (20-micron), Yellow (50-micron).
FPC series cartridges contain more media surface area than most competitive cartridges. The standard 10-inch FPC cartridge contains six square feet of media, where most cartridges contain only 4.5 square feet.
