ECP Series cartridges are manufactured from a special formulation
of resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester fibers.
This unique blend of materials provides a higher wet strength
than regular cellulose cartridges. It also provides high
flow rates and dirt-holding capacity, while maintaining
extremely low pressure drop.
The media is pleated around a polypropylene core for added
strength and the ends are immersed in a thermo-setting vinyl
plastisol. Embedding and sealing each end of the pleat block
in this fashion fuses the components together forming a
unified end cap and gasket.
ECP Series cartridge end caps feature a color-coding system
for easy identification of micron ratings: Tan (1-micron),
White (5-micron), Blue (20-micron), Yellow (50-micron).
The new ECP cartridges contain more media surface area
than most competitive cartridges. The standard 10"
ECP cartridges contain six square feet of media, where most
cartridges contain only 4.5 square feet. Additional ECP
cartridges contain the following amount of media:
Standard 20" cartridge 12 ft2
10" BB cartridge 18 ft2
20" BB cartridge 36 ft2
