Features and Benefits

N/A Absolute.Za (Abs.Za) is manufactured using patented Z.Plex filter technology and is engineered specifically for absolute filtration. (See Figure 1.) The patented filter matrix of the Absolute.Za provides unmatched performance in these applications. The Absolute.Za filter composition incorporates small diameter fibers and an innovative 3-dimensional fiber matrix. The filter matrix maintains structural integrity while greatly increasing the filter's particle holding capacity and reducing pressure drop. This unique construction allows for absolute filtration and long life.

  • Optimized performance for absolute filtration.
  • Superior particle holding capacity
  • Long filter life
  • Low pressure drop
  • Melt-bonded exterior ensures no media migration
  • High strength polypropylene core

  • Typical Applications


  • Chemicals
  • Oil and gas
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Food and Beverage

  • Materials of Construction

    N/A 100% polypropylene construction (filter, end caps and core)

    Additional Information

    N/A Absolute.Za cartridge filters are made from thermally bonded fibers of polypropylene. GE certifies that it uses no resin-binders, lubricants, anti-static or release agents or other additives in the manufacture of these cartridges, and that the resin used for manufacturing the filter media meets the food contact requirements of U.S. FDA 21CFR regulations. Absolute.Za filters meet the test criteria for USP class VI-121ºC Plastics.

    GE filter cartridges are manufactured for resistance to a wide range of chemical solutions. Conditions will vary with each application and users should carefully verify chemical compatibility. Please contact your GE representative for more information.

    • 1 Viton is a trademark of DuPont Dow Elastomers.
    • 2 Removal efficiencies are reported for a given particle size. An efficiency of 99.9% at 3 microns means that the filter removes 99.9% of the particles that are 3 microns in size.
