MBB Large Diameter Filter


Description and Use

MBB Large Diameter Filters combine innovative depth filter technology, and quality to provide excellent filtration value in residential and light commercial applications.

Expanding its Product Line

GE Water & Process Technologies continues to expand its product line meeting market demand with the introduction of our new large diameter MBB filter. Manufactured with our world renowned Meltblown Microfiber Technology, the engineered gradient density feature of this cartridge provides exceptional dirt-holding capacity and unequaled life compared to our equivalent rated standard filters. The MBB filter, with its three to eight times greater dirt-holding capacity and life, will reduce change-out frequency, adding more value in applications where high capacity and infrequent change-outs are desired. This product is ideally suited to be used in AMETEK’s Big Blue and Keystone’s Blue Giant housing units. (Big Blue is a trademark of US Filter/Siemens. Blue Giant is a trademark of Metpro Keystone Filter Division.) The LD filter has pure FDA compliant polypropylene construction, and is manufactured using ISO 9001 certified process.

Typical Applications

 Whole House Filtration
 Spa and Pool Filtration
 Restaurant and Food Service
 Water Filtration

General Properties

High Dirt-Holding Capacity
• True-graded density of the extended media captures particles throughout entire filter depth
• High dirt-holding capacity means longer life and fewer change-outs, which translates into money saved
• Precision final filter results in consistent high performance filtration
• Large media area allows for high flow rates (Maximum recommended flow rate is 10 gpm for 25 microns and 5 gpm for 1, and 5 microns per 10-inch length. Change-outs recommended at 25 psid)

Pure Polypropylene Construction
• Thermally-bonded microfibers for positive dirt retention
• High-purity polypropylene media has no wetting agents, solvents, antistatic agents or binders
• Wide chemical compatibility
• Temperatures to 150ºF
• Meets the requirements of the FDA Title 21 of The Code of Federal Regulations 174.5 and relevant subparts of 177.

Proven Manufacturing Process
• Automated, consistent manufacturing process ensures reliable performance and repeatable results
• Large diameter filter manufacturing is ISO 9001 certified assuring continuous product quality
