FAQ

I USED A POLYPROPYLENE FILTER CARTRIDGE IN MY HARD CHROME SOLUTION AND IT DISINTEGRATED IN A FEW DAYS. DO YOU HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE?

Hard chrome and other concentrated chromic acid solutions rapidly attack filter cartridges made of polyproplene.

The Super Magnum REUSABLE Filter Cartridge — available in 30 and 75 microns — is the only type we offer that can withstand chromic acid solution for any reasonable length of time. The cartridge consists of a POLYESTER reusable filter blanket, a polypropylene core, and plastic web to hold the assembly together.

The filter blanket can be cleaned with a spray hose and water and then re-rolled around the cartridge core for reuse. (Or you can just dispose of the blanket.) The cores may last for six months in hot chromic acid. The blankets are available in a pack of six and can be replaced as needed. The plastic webs are inexpensive and can also be replaced.

The Super Magnum reusable filter cartridges are available in lengths of 6, 10, 15 and 20 inches (15, 25, 38 and 51 cm).

Two types are available — the Permacore style and the Standard style. Most customers prefer the Permacore Magnum Reusable Filter Cartridges if they are mounted on Flo King pumps. The Permacore has a machined polypropylene head that fits snugly into the pump and provides a secure long-term mount. The Permacore and Standard Magnum cartridges are otherwise identical.
