We developed Zeta Plus™ S Series Filter Cartridges to provide optimal clarification of food and beverage, cosmetic and industrial fluids. The cartridges are constructed with Zeta Plus™ S Series depth filter media, which is composed of inorganic filter aid, cellulose, and a resin system that imparts a positive charge to the filter matrix, aiding its adsorption of negatively-charged contaminants.
  • Used in a variety of applications in the food and beverage and cosmetic industries
  • Exhibit high contaminant-holding capacity and provide economical filtration and reliable particle reduction
  • Retain contaminants by mechanical entrapment and electrokinetic adsorption
  • Offered in a full range of scalable capsule and cartridge filter configurations, enabling pilot testing and scale-up operations to use the same material as in full-scale systems

Superior Particle Reduction

Our family of Zeta Plus™ S Series Filter Cartridges are composed of advanced cellulose-based depth filtration media, designed to retain contaminants by both mechanical entrapment and electrokinetic adsorption. Zeta Plus S Series depth filter media is composed of high surface area filter aids embedded in a cellulose fiber matrix. During the manufacturing process, the resin system incorporated into the filter media imparts a positive charge to the filter matrix to permanently form a filtration structure with positively charged electrokinetic capture sites. The resulting porous depth filter is a tortuous network of charge-enhanced flow channels capable of removing bacteria, particulate, and submicronic contaminants to a level which mechanical screening alone cannot achieve.

Our cartridges are constructed from individual cells of Zeta Plus™ S Series filter media, assembled together with polypropylene ring seals under predetermined compression, and unitized by three, 316 stainless steel bands. Each cell is constructed using polypropylene molded edge-seals and separators for high performance. Gasket material options are available.

Zeta Plus™ S Series filter cartridges are available in a broad range of micron ratings to meet coarse, medium or fine clarification applications. Optimum flow rates vary by application, but in general, lower flux rates often result in longer service life, greater throughputs and superior system economics.

We also offer a range of cartridge sizes, available in 8", 12" and 16" diameters, with surface areas ranging from 0.26 m² to 3.9 m² (2.8 ft² to 42.2 ft²) per cartridge to make scale-up straightforward and predictable.
