GasShield PENTA point-of-use filters offer the high flow and low delta-P of Teflon«, but with a 100% nickel filter element. This design has also reduced filter element surface area, which results in lower levels of moisture and hydrocarbons. So now you can get flows over 450 slpm with a delta-P of 2 psid at system pressures of 90 psig without having to worry about media migration or the annual change-outs associated with Teflon«.
Space consumption carries a high price in a gas panel. And chances are, you have some designs that just won't accommodate larger filters - no matter how well they perform, or how long they last. The good news is, GasShield PENTA filters are offered in industry-standard sizes as short as 3.31". Our PENTA Hiflow™ filters offer the highest flow per footprint of any metal filter in the industry.
So now you can make the switch from Teflon« to Mott metal without having to move lines or make other adjustments. Simply out with the old, and in with Mott all-metal filters.
Cost of ownership
If all filters were created equal, finding the best deal would be easy. You'd just look at the price tag. But all filters aren't created equal. Some last longer than others. And some perform better than others in normal and abnormal conditions.
Teflon« filters, though attractively priced, are short-lived. Their manufac-turers recommend changing them out every year. GasShield PENTA filters, on the other hand, are guaranteed to last for five years. So when it comes to total cost of ownership, PENTA filters should cost no more - and in most cases, will cost less - than the competition.
And that's just when you consider product costs. Factor in the savings in labor by eliminating a few filter change-outs and reduced process downtime, and PENTA filters offer an even better value. Plus, you're buying a new level of reassurance. With PENTA filters installed, you have a point-of-use filtration system that can tolerate an unusually high pressure pulse, and still keep particles from reaching downstream process components and product. The best insurance available.
PENTA filter elements constructed of 100% nickel media contain less surface area, which minimizes levels of moisture and hydrocarbons while maximizing flow.
