AEGIS® TurboGuard® Pre-Filters

Its technically improved 6 inch (152 mm) high-flow filter for the utility market. Graver is the world’s largest supplier of condensate system filters and components and has been manufacturing precoat and non-precoat septa for condensate systems for more than 50 years. Graver is the consistent technology innovator with more than 40 patents and numerous technical advances for condensate and high purity water applications.

Graver’s family of TurboGuard High Flow Filters will provide superior CRUD removal upstream of deep bed demineralizers.  TurboGuard High Flow Filters may also be used following ion exchange beds as a resin trap, or as highly efficient pre-filters before membrane systems.

Graver’s TurboGuard line of filters are manufactured in the USA at Graver Technologies manufacturing plants, under an ISO-9001 (2000) quality system.

Graver’s TurboGuard High Flow Filter integrates a number of improvements over currently available elements.  With the most experience of any supplier in condensate applications, Graver can access more than 50 years of experience when improving fundamental filtration in condensate and high purity water applications.

High Flow Series Filter Cartridges

Large Geometry Pleated Filters for High Flow

Graver High Flow Series filters feature a larger geometry to handle higher flows with fewer filter elements. The result is much faster, easier filter changeouts. In addition, the inside to outside flow allows for excellent dirt holding capacity, extending the time between filter changeouts.

Filter housings are also available and because of the filters high flow and dirt holding capacity, smaller systems are possible, reducing upfront capital costs.

High Flow Series Features – Benefits

  • 6” diameter, large geometry for high flows
  • Absolute retention ratings from 1 to 100 microns
  • Capable of flow rates up to 500 GPM in a single 60” element
  • FDA listed materials of construction
  • Inside-out flow retains contaminant even during change-out
  • Multi layer pleated construction with optimized surface area
  • Outer cage prevents media extrusion problem experienced with some competitive offerings
  • Unique Quad Seal gasket provides maximum seal integrity
  • Retrofits competitive high flow filter housings
  • Thermally bonded construction
