Industry’s Filtration Partner
Memtrex PC (MPC) filters’ (Figure 1) unique polycarbonate track-etch membrane leads the market for precise filtration, broad chemical compatibility, and fast conductivity and TOC rinse-down in ultrapure water systems. MPC filters’ precise micron cutoffs and very low pore sizes down to 0.05 micron provide you with high purity filtration for all of your critical electronic, chemical and highly technical processes.

The MPC filter is just one example of our strong commitment to fluid filtration. Whether you require an integrated solution or a single component for a specific application, look to GE Water & Process Technologies first. From one end of the filtration spectrum to the other, GE has a total commitment to fluid purity. GE is your complete source for filters, crossflow membranes, housings, and other filtration equipment.

    Additional Information


    • The filters may be sanitized with compatible chemical agents.
    • Memtrex PC filters meet the test criteria for USP class VI-121ºC plastics.
    • Aqueous extracts from Memtrex PC filters contain less than 0.25 EU/ml. The filters typically exhibit low levels of non-volatile residues.
    • GE filter cartridges are designed and 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 distributor for more information.
