Radial cartridge filters are unique in that they have a moulded one-piece structure, and despite having a pleated media they don’t need any protective cage. These filters are produced either from UHMWPE or HDPE. Owing to the radial shape, these filters offer more surface area than pleated filters. Since they are built from a single layer and have a robust construction, they can be backwashed without harming the pore structure. They are compatible with a broad range of chemicals.
