Greater Solids Holding Capacity

Penguin’s wound cartridge filters are manufactured using a high speed, continuous wind process which creates a superior one-piece filter with hundreds of diamond shaped tunnels that get progressively smaller from the outer diameter to the core. Finer particles are progressively trapped as fluid travels to the center of the filter allowing for much greater retention capacity than that which is associated with straight surface filter media of the same dimensions and porosity. The winding pattern provides 3.5 square feet per 10" cartridge filter. For each 10" filter length there will be approximately to 1 lb. Retention of solids before replacement becomes necessary. The amount of solids retained depends on the type of solids in the solution as well as the head pressure developed by the pump.

Wide Choice of Porosity, Lengths and Diameters

Our wound cartridge filters reject particles from as low as 0.5 micron to 150 micron plus they are available in lengths ranging from 4" to 40" or longer on special order. We offer a standard nominal 1" inside diameter and optional inside diameters of 7/8", 1 3/8", and 30 mm. Our outside diameter is 2 " standard with optional outside diameters ranging from 2" to 4 ". Thus you can tailor your filtration system to your specific needs and economics whether it be for single pass or recirculation filtration.

Temperature and Chemical Compatibility

Penguin offers a wide selection of wind and core materials so you can select the appropriate combination for your filtration needs. Wind materials include: Standard, fibrillated and utility grade polypropylene, natural cotton, bleached cotton, rayon, polyester, nylon, modacrylic and heat cleaned glass fiber. And core materials includes: polypropylene, tin plated steel, 304 stainless steel and 316 stainless steel.

Longer Service Life

Penguin’s wound cartridge filters offer true depth filtration for high dirt holding capacity and extremely low media migration. Thus, even when the particle distribution of the contaminant is broad, Penguin filters have excellent dirt holding capacity because of density and structure. Therefore, it is not unusual for a set of cartridges to filter many millions of gallons of fluid before requiring replacement. This means less equipment downtime, extended life for chemical solutions, cleaners, oils, coolants and liquids, not to mention the savings in labor and materials.
