Absolute Rated Depth Cartridge Filter with Z.Plex Filter Technology
The purity and reliability of Hytrex cartridge filters (Figure 1) ensure consistent results, time after time. Thermally bonded micro fibers create a strong secure cartridge that traps particles throughout its depth. Hytrex combines efficiency, long life and purity to create a high performance depth filter.
- Pure polypropylene construction
- Fast rinse-up in high purity applications
- Meets the requirement of the FDA Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations 174.5 and relevant subparts of 177
- Wide chemical compatibility
- Automated packaging for a clean finished product
- NSF Standard 42 certified
The Purtrex depth filter (Figure 1), is an exceptional value for general applications where long life, high purity and low change-out frequency are required. Produced through GE Water & Process Technologies' patented melt blown microfiber technology, Purtrex is a 100% pure polypropylene depth filter with exceptional dirt-holding capacity.
Purtrex' true-graded density filter matrix (lower density at the surface of the filter with progressively higher density toward the center) captures particles throughout the entire filter depth. This translates to longer life and fewer change-outs than existing string-wound or resin-bonded filters.
Purtrex contains no wetting agents, solvents, antistatic agents or binders, and meets the requirements of the FDA for food and beverage contact. The filter incinerates to trace ash for easy disposal.

ROSave.Z is manufactured using patent pending Z.Plex filter technology (Figure 1) and is engineered for reverse osmosis pretreatment and other pure water applications. ROSave.Zs' proprietary filter matrix provides unmatched performance in these applications.
- Up to twice the life of conventional depth filters
- Up to 50% lower pressure drop
- Up to 100% greater dirt holding capacity
- Superior SDI reduction
- Melt-bonded exterior ensures no media migration
- Provides lower total cost of filtration operations
- NSF 42 certified, FDA compliant
The Selex (SX) cartridge filter (Figure 1) is a high precision graded density cartridge constructed of 100% pure polypropylene. Selex provides a very high particle retention efficiency that equates the performance of absolute rated filters. The patented Selex manufacturing process controls the density and fiber size, which are key to the filter’s performance and long life. Selex cartridge filters have sharp efficiency cutoff, fast rinse up for exceptional purity, and continuous, weld free lengths up to 40 inches (101.6 cm).
Flotrex AP Capsule Filters (CFAP) combine the purity and reliability of all-polypropylene construction into a cost-effective filter that exhibits exceptional particle retention and service life. With their range of micron ratings and broad chemical compatibility, CFAP filters are appropriate for a wide range of applications.
Constructed with gradient density thermally-bonded polypropylene microfiber media, absolute-rated Flotrex AP (FAP) filters (Figure 1) combine exceptional solids-holding capacities with precise micron retention ratings. The FAP filters are constructed of FDA acceptable high-purity polypropylene.
FAP filters are absolute-rated for air, gas and liquid filtration with low pressure drop across the wide range of 0.65 to 40 microns. Sheets of melt-blown media are layered to provide absolute particle retention, high solids loading and long service life.
Flotrex GF Capsule Filters (CFGF) are constructed with durable acrylic resin bonded glass microfiber media for superior performance in applications with excessive particle burden. CFGF filters provide excellent protection for final membrane filters and are also exceptional final filters in applications that do not require membrane filtration. Figure 1 shows the variety of Flotrex GF Capsule Filters.
- Flotrex GF has acrylic resin-bonded glass microfiber media
- Reliable particle retention
- Excellent service life in applications with severe particle loads
- Polypropylene structure for enhanced chemical resistance
- Excellent protection for final membrane filters
- Ideal for batch or small volume processes
The Flotrex GF (FGF) filter (Figure 1) is an absolute rated, glass microfiber filter that is dependable and very efficient in the removal of Cryptosporidium and Giardia cysts. The filters do not leach any flavor-altering substances and are ideal for final filtration applications. FGF filters have the important International Bottled Water Association (IBWA)- recommended 1.0-micron absolute rating. The FGF 1.0 micron filters are NSF International Standard 53 certified for the reduction of cysts.
The FGF filter is just one example of our strong commitment to liquid, air and gas treatment. Our complete portfolio includes filters for every stage of processing, and we offer custom solutions for your unique applications. GE Water & Process Technologies is your complete source for filters, housings and other filtration equipment.
Flotrex-HR (FHR) filters (Figure 1) are made entirely from Halar (ECTFE) (Halar is a trademark of Ausimont.), an industrial-grade fluoropolymer with excellent solvent resistance. FHR filters can withstand the harshest process conditions due to this virtually indestructible material. Providing broad chemical compatibility, you can count on our filters to produce consistent, uniform process streams in your most demanding filtration applications.
FHR filters deliver high flow rates and high-purity results with absolute rated efficiencies (99.9% filtration efficiency at rated pore size based on ASTM F795 and F661 test methods) and retention characteristics that typically outperform polypropylene fiber filters.
The FHR filter is just one example of our strong commitment to fluid treatment. Our complete portfolio includes filters for every stage of processing, and we offer custom solutions for your unique applications. GE Water & Process Technologies is your complete source for filters, crossflow membranes, housings, and other filtration equipment.
The Flotrex PN (FPN) microfiber filters (Figure 1) offer an economical solution for your filtration needs. The all polypropylene construction of the FPN filters provides superior chemical compatibility. The gradient density, thermally bonded polypropylene media has excellent dirt holding capacities and reliable retention characteristics. FPN filters do not contain any adhesives or additives.
Glass Microfiber Nominal and Absolute
For applications requiring higher flow rates.
The Spiraltek encapsulation and Quick Change housing allow safe and easy filter replacements. This shortens production down time, eliminates handling of heavy housing tops, reduces cleanup time and simplifies filter disposal.
