Highlights
  • Proprietary diamond pleat design optimizes usable surface area of the cartridge to maximize filter life
  • Highest flow rate among 3M large format filters allows for operational flexibility to maintain process flow requirements
  • Ergonomic horizontal design with a twist-to-lock handle allows for faster and easier cartridge installation and removal
  • High flow capability enables fewer cartridges, which results in reduced cartridge handling and disposal, reduced filter change-out time and less individual cartridge seal points to help achieve sustainability goals
  • Outside-to-inside flow construction allows for compact housing design
  • Absolute-rated polypropylene filter provides consistent performance, effluent quality and broad chemical compatibility
  • Extensive food contact compliance* *For details related to specific use conditions or limitations for food contact applications, please contact your 3M Representative for more information

3M™ High Flow Series Filter Cartridge

High flow capability in a compact design.

3M™ High Flow Series HF and HFM Filter Cartridges provide high flow capability in an outside-to-inside flow path that allows for small housing sizes and reduces the number of cartridges needed for your application, resulting in lower labour costs and a more sustainable solution. With a single open-end design and fewer individual cartridge seal points than 2.5 inch filters, these filter cartridges also help to reduce the chance of fluid bypass.

  • Waves icon
    High flow capability.

    Designed to accommodate high flow rates for industrial applications, 3M™ High Flow Series Filters require fewer filters to maintain your process flow requirements.

  • Diamond pleat construction icon
    Diamond pleat construction.

    Our proprietary diamond pleat design provides large surface area to help maximise filter loading capacity for a long filter life and a reduced number of required change-outs.

  • Horizontal setup housing icon
    Horizontal set-up.

    3M High Flow Series Filters feature a horizontal ergonomic design in the 40 and 60 inch versions.

  • Hand pulling filter handle icon
    Ergonomic design.

    Featuring a twist-to lock mechanism, filter change-outs are quick and easy and do not require any special tools or hardware for installation or removal.

3M™ High Flow Series Filter Cartridges are available in two types of system designs.

  • HF membrane under a microscope
    3M™ High Flow HF Series Filter Cartridges

    These high flow filter cartridges offer great particulate removal and surface filtration for a variety of industrial applications.

  • HFM membrane under a microscope
    3M™ High Flow HFM Series Filter Cartridges

    Featuring a thick media, these high flow filters are designed to filter deformables and organics. They also help prevent premature blinding of the filter’s outer surface, promoting fuller utilisation of the media for an optimal combination of particle removal efficiency and contaminant holding capability.

Each grade of the 3M™ High Flow Series Filters systems is manufactured in polypropylene material. The blown microfiber (BMF) media provides high particle reduction efficiency and a broad chemical compatibility. No adhesives, binders, or silicone are used in the manufacturing process. O-rings are available in a variety of materials to suit your applications. The maximum design flow through the High Flow HF and HFM cartridges is 85 gpm for 10 inch length, 350 gpm for 40 inch length and 500 gpm for 60 inch length filter cartridges. Results will vary depending on process conditions. Ratings from 1 to 70 micron absolute or 5 micron nominal are available. The maximum forward differential pressure is 50psid at 68°F (3.4 bar at 20°C) and the recommended change-out pressure is 35psid at 68°F (2.4 bar at 20°C). Work with your local distributor to find the right high flow filter housing for your industrial filtration needs.
