The unique media combination in the Polygard® CE filter combines the high adsorption capacity of a glass microfiber and diatomite with the robustness of polypropylene for high resistance to backflush, peracetic acid, chlorine at less than 100 ppm, and temperature. Polygard CE filters are available in a range of grades to retain colloidal matter better than any other prefilter cartridge.
Polygard-CE filters are engineered for high efficiency filtration giving extended protection to downstream final filters. Glass fibers with diatomaceous earth and polypropylene are fused into a composite filter medium to provide exceptional throughput and high colloidal retention capability. The Polygard-CE filters can be repeatedly hot water regenerated providing highly cost effective filtration.
Use Polygard CE filters as:
- An alternative to Bevigard™-P and Bevigard-M filters in protecting final Vitipore™ II and Vitipore II Plus cartridge filters
- Protection for Bevigard-P and Bevigard-M filters
