Filter Pads Top

ErtelAlsop has been manufacturing cellulose based depth filter pads, or sheets for a wide range of applications in the pharmaceutical, chemical, cosmetic, electric utility and food & beverage markets since 1920.
By using a unique blend of cellulose pulp and various filter aids, ErtelAlsop is positioned to offer the widest variety of filter media grades available.

Specifications and Features

Materials of Construction
Cellulose wood pulp, Perlite, Diatomaceous Earth, Activated Carbon, and Wet Strength Resin.

Depth Particle Retention

From 15 microns nominal down to 0.25 microns nominal with the ability to retain smaller than 0.25 micron particles.

Sizes Available
Over 300 precision dies are available to fit virtually any filter press.

High Solids Loading
Filter pads provide high solids loading due to the large internal surface area and void volume present within the matrix of fibers and filter aid which comprise the filter pad. This extends filter life and provides greater throughput.
