order filters are available in varying sizes with lengths
from 1 to 60.
Standard filters are finished with an outer polypropylene spunbonded prefiltration medium overlying a second polypropylene melt-blown prefiltration medium. A protective polypropylene netting is applied to the exterior of the cartridge. Polypropylene end caps with compression gaskets fit most standard housings.
concerning alternative filter finishing options, including alternative end cap
and housing interface styles, a wide range of non-standard extruded filter sizes
and non-standard prefiltration systems.
EXTRUDED CARBON = EXCEPTIONAL VALUE
filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a
uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency.
MATRIKX® +1 filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside)
direction, providing increased dirt capacity and low pressure
drop. Unlike granular activated carbon (GAC) filters, MATRIKX® +1
cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity
of their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the
MATRIKX® +1 filter is greatly extended by two layers of
prefiltration media consisting of a 15 µm polypropylene
spunbonded outer prefiltration layer and a 5 µm polypropylene
melt-blown inner layer.
- No Channeling
- No Fluidizing
- No Bypassing
- Eliminates release of carbon fines
- Lowest extractables, pure materials of construction
- Maximum service life and resistance to fouling
- Graded density prefiltration design
- Manufactured using
a given MATRIKX® extruded carbon filter varies in direct proportion to the
total weight of carbon in each filter. For example, a 4.25 O.D. x 20
L MATRIKX® filter contains approximately seven times as much activated carbon
as a 2.50 O.D. x 9.75 L MATRIKX® filter, and will therefore have
seven times the rated chlorine capacity when operated at seven times the rated
flow of the smaller cartridge. Hence, rated flow is based on maintaining identical
contact/residence times for all filters.
Chlorine capacity is the estimated capacity in gallons during which the filter will remove
>95% of influent free available chlorine (2 ppm) when operating at a given flow
and has been tested using the NSF Standard 42 protocol for chlorine reduction.
rating (0.6 µm) is for >85% of a given size as determined from single-pass
particle counting results.*
particulate rating (2 µm ) is for >99.9% of particles
of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting
*Nominal Filter Rating:
Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle, the majority of which
will not pass through the filter. It is generally interpreted as meaning that
85% of the particles of the size equal to the nominal micron rating will be retained
by the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).
Rating: Filter rating meaning that 99.9% (or essentially all) of the particles
larger than a specific micron rating will be trapped on or within the filter. (WQA
Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97)
- Maximum Operating Temperature: 125°F

- Maximum Differential Pressure: 100 psid
