Industry’s Filtration Partner
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.

Typical Applications


  • High Purity Chemicals
  • Bottled Water
  • Pre-treatment for Reverse Osmosis
  • Oil & Gas
  • Electronics

  • Consistent Performance

    N/A Patented, continuous process assures consistent product performance. Lot-to-lot, order-to-order, strict quality control assures repeatability. Figures 2 and 3 give greater detail of the high flow rate at low pressure drop for the various sizes of Hytrex filters.

    Operating Pressure & Temperature


  • Maximum operating differential pressure: 35 psid @ 100ºF (38ºC)
  • Maximum operating temperature: 160ºF (71ºC) @ 15 psid (103.4 kPa)

  • High Dirt Holding Capacity


  • True-graded density captures particles throughout entire filter depth
  • High dirt-holding capacity means longer life and fewer changeouts which translates to money saved
  • Lower density at the surface of the filter with progressively higher density toward the center
  • No surface blinding, which reduces flow and increases filter changeouts

  • Wide Range of Lengths & Adapters


  • Standard lengths fit most housings-custom lengths can also be provided
  • Wide range of polypropylene end-adapters including gaskets, extended cores and
  • GE Water & Process Technologies patented self seal polypropylene springs
  • If required, specify FDA-compliant sealing materials and end adapters

  • Material and FDA Compliance

    N/A Hytrex cartridge filters are made from thermally welded blown microfibers of polypropylene. GE certifies that the resin used for manufacturing the filter media of this product meets the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 174.5 and relevant subparts of 177.
