Depth Filter Pads

Depth filter pad products in all sizes and configurations for plate and frame filter presses.

Clarifying filtration is the removal of fine particles, colloidal particles, bacteria and other sub-micronic solids that is an essential part of Chemical, Cosmetic, Electric Utility, Food and Beverage, and Pharmaceutical manufacturing. One very efficient and cost effective type of filtration takes the form of the depth filter pad. Separation Technologies offers Depth filter pads for virtually all sizes and configurations of plate and frame filter presses. This media is composed of a unique matrix of cellulose fibers and various filter aids. Particle retention is achieved via Size Exclusion or sieving, Inertial Impaction by natural adsorptive forces, and a Zeta Potential or positive electrokinetic attraction caused by cationic resins that modify the charge of the media to attract the primarily negatively charged particles passing through it.
