PLEATED FILTER CARTRIDGES
Siga filtration offers pleated filter cartridges in a wide range of materials, lengths, end caps and micron ratings for industrial and hygienic applications. All filter cartridges in our FINEPleat range have absolute ratings (membranes) and Beta rating of 5000 (non membranes), which means that our pleated cartridges will provide consistent and reliable removal of particles, bacteria and contaminants at the rated pore size. A hard outer cage protects the pleats from damage and provides support during cleaning and sanitisation.
All filter cartridges in our hygienic filtration range are manufactured from FDA approved components and suitable for food contact. FINEPleat membrane filter cartridges carry validated removal ratings.

STERIPleat Vent – Sterilising Grade Filter Cartridge for Air/Gases
The enhanced Hydrophobic PTFE membrane offers exceptionally high gas flow rates at low pressure differentials. STERIPleat Vent cartridges are recommended for sterile gas filtration and venting applications. The hydrophobic characteristics of the PTFE membrane make the STERIPleat Vent filter cartridge particularly suitable for wet gas sterilising applications, such as fermenter air feed.
STERIPleat PTFE Membrane Filter Cartridge
STERIPleat PTFE cartridges offer a wide range of chemical compatibility with high thermal stability for solvent and aggressive chemical filtration applications. Suitable for the most demanding microfiltration applications, these cartridges can be used for the filtration of aggressive chemical solutions including acids, alkalis, solvents and etchants.
STERIPleat PES Membrane Filter Cartridge
STERIPleat PES cartridges are based on a naturally hydrophilic polyethersulphone (PES) membrane with a mirrored asymmetric pore structure. When combined with quality all-polypropylene cartridge components and high integrity manufacturing techniques, the polyethersulphone membrane provides a high strength, long life cartridge of consistently precise microbial retention.
STERIPleat Bev – PES Membrane Filter Cartridge for Beverage Filtration
STERIPleat Bev filter cartridges are specially designed for applications in beverage industry. Typical applications include clarification, bioburden reduction, cold stabilisation, sterilisation of wines and beers and removal of yeast and spoilage organisms. Low colour removal is an additional advantage.
FINEPleat GFP – Pleated Glass Fibre Cartridge with Polyester Hardware
FINEPleat GFP filter cartridges have been specially designed for filtration of industrial fuels and chemicals – diesel, biodiesel, gasoline, biodiesel blends. These filter cartridges feature absolute rated glass fibre media with polyester support and drainage layers. Polyester construction provides thermal resistance up to 120°C and chemical resistance in fuel and chemical applications. All FINEPleat GFP cartridges come with absolute retention ratings and industry standard end cap styles.
STERIPleat Nylon Membrane Filter Cartridge
STERIPleat Nylon cartridges are based on a naturally hydrophilic nylon membrane. When combined with quality all-polypropylene cartridge components and high integrity manufacturing techniques, the nylon membrane provides a high strength, long life cartridge of consistently precise particle retention across a wide range of particle sizes. STERIPleat Nylon cartridges benefit from high protein binding characteristics of nylon membranes. They are also highly resistant to integrity failure caused by steam sterilisation.
