    3M™ Betafine™ PPG Series Filter Mini-Cartridge is our absolute-rated, graded-porosity multi-layer 100% polypropylene pleated filter with Advanced Pleat Technology (APT) to increase the usable surface area while maintaining industry standard cartridge sizes.

    3M™ Betafine™ PPG Mini-Cartridges provide significant flow advantages compared to competitive offerings resulting in greater batch capacity and reduced filter change-outs. They may be installed in 3M Purification Mini Cartridge housings or existing housings. For a given process flow rate, the graded-density structure and maximum filter area may decrease filter cartridge change-out frequency. ABCs of the APT Design The combined innovative features in our Betafine PPG Series Filter Mini-Cartridges represent a significant step forward in pleated polypropylene filter design and performance. The Advanced Pleat Technology (APT) construction provides up to 50% more filter media (surface area) than competitor filters. This design technology maximises the useful surface area while maintaining open flow paths between media pleats. To attain the ideal balance between surface area and performance, Betafine PPG filters are designed so the pleating process and media support materials work together to provide enhanced flow characteristics, higher product throughput and longer service life. The filter media itself is made using our absolute-rated, graded-density media to produce the best contaminant holding achievable. With innovative design features and construction, Betafine PPG series filters increase flow and reduce pressure drop in the filter. Each Betafine PPG Series Filter Mini-Cartridge is shipped with a Certificate of Quality detailing the product attributes and qualification testing to help make your documentation and specification compliance protocols easier and more complete. Graded-Density media helps provide Longer Life The graded-density media structure incorporated into Betafine PPG filters removes particles sequentially by size - the larger particles by the more open, outer medium; and the smaller particles by the tighter, inner medium. The outer medium acts as a pre-filter while the inner medium provides the absolute removal specified by the cartridge rating. This configuration effectively spreads the contaminant throughout the depth of the filter, resulting in extremely high contaminant capacity with lower pressure drop and a longer service life. We use an all-polypropylene construction to provide broad chemical compatibility for a wide variety of applications. Betafine PPG Series Filter Mini-Cartridges have ultra-low extractable levels and are well-suited for the process filtration of a wide range of fluids, providing you with an ideal choice for numerous pharmaceutical applications. Betafine PPG series filters can be used for general prefiltration, clarification or as a final filter in appropriate applications. All component materials meet the requirements of USP Class VI Biological Tests for Plastics.
