3M™ High Flow Filter System

The 3M High Flow Filter System is a result of 3M's extensive filtration experience applied to delivering high flow filter technology in a compact design.

3M High Flow filter systems are ideally suited to provide effective filtration at high process flow rates typical in applications such as Pre-RO membrane protection, Process cooling water, Condensate treatment and Bottling Plants.

High Flow Filter System

The systems utilise large 6.5” (165mm) outer diameter compound radial pleated cartridges, delivering flow rates up to 113 m³/hr per absolute rated 60“ (1524mm) length filter cartridge. The compound radial pleat design delivers a large amount of filter media surface area per cartridge and helps maximise the usable surface area of each filter to ensure that all the filter media is used to capture particles and that there are no “dead zones”.

3M High Flow filter cartridges feature high efficiency polypropylene microfibre media that provides consistent, predictable particle reduction efficiencies.

A range of specifically designed 3M High Flow filter housings are available to deliver all of the systems benefits in a compact footprint for your production site. In addition to the standard Coreline single cartridge housing range, bespoke 3M High Flow system filter housings can be built upon request to a wide range of specification and design and construction standards.

  • High performance media in a innovative design
    • High performance media in a innovative design

    • High Flow filter cartridges feature high efficiency polypropylene microfibre media that provides consistent, predictable particle reduction efficiencies.

    • Compared to conventional nominally rated 2.5“ outer diameter filter cartridges, 3M High Flow filter systems offer the following advantages:


      • High Flow Capability: Flow rates up to 113 m³/hr per absolute rated 60" (1524mm) length filter cartridge.
      • Compact Housing Design: Reduces up-front capital expenditure requirements and footprint.
      • Higher Particle Retention Efficiencies (99.9%): Provides optimum protection of downstream equipment.
      • Ease of Use: Fewer cartridges means filter change-outs are quicker and easier.
      • Twist-to-Lock Cartridge: Provides a positive indication of proper sealing, reducing the possibility of bypass.
      • Operational differential pressure up to 3.4 bar (recommended change out 2.4 bar).
      • Food Contact Compliant: Food Contact Directive (EC) 1935/2004.
    • Available in 10”, 40” and 60” 1-70 micron absolute rated filter cartridges, accommodating flow rates of up to 19.3 m³/hr, 80 m³/hr, 113 m³/hr respectively.

    3M™ High Flow Filter Cartridge Design Features


Ease of Use

An ergonomically designed handle facilitates fast and easy insertion and removal without the use of special tools. Cartridges are simply inserted over a built-in guide tube. Filter changeouts are also quicker and easier due to fewer cartridges used.

Polypropylene Construction

Provides wide range of compatibility with various fluids.

Compound Radial Pleat Design

Maximises the usable surface area per cartridge.

High Flow

6.5" (165mm) outer diameter core permits up to 113 m3/hr through a single 60" (1524mm) length filter cartridge. Seating mechanism uses a 'twist to lock' design to provide a positive seal reducing the possibility of bypass.

  • Bespoke 3M High Flow Systems
    • 3M High Flow filter housings

    • 3M High Flow filter housings are specifically designed to deliver all of the system’s benefits in a compact footprint in your production site. The range is constructed from 316 grade stainless steel (wetted parts in contact) and has a maximum allowable working pressure of 10 bar for use with temperatures up to 120 ° C (110°C for 01HFN Coreline single cartridge housing).

    • In addition to the standard Coreline single cartridge housing range, 3M High Flow filter housings can be built upon request to a wide range of specification and design and construction standards.

    • Bespoke 3M High Flow Systems

    • The 3M Hardware team have extensive experience in designing special housings for filter applications. They can produce them to a wide variety of design and construction codes (including ASME U Stamp). Bespoke housings can range from simple modifications of standard designs up to large multiple housing skid mounted units with associated accessories and with both second shell heating jackets and electrical trace heating.

    • Bespoke 3M High Flow filter housings can be produced from single cartridge units up to housings holding 40 cartridges each. The operating conditions for the housings can be configured to handle liquids at pressures and temperatures according to the customer’s specific needs.
