The Arkal Color-coded Polypropylene or Nylon discs are grooved on both sides to a specific micron size. A series of these discs are then stacked and compressed on a specially designed spine. When stacked, the groove on top runs opposite to the groove below, creating a filtration element with a statistically significant series of intersecting grooves which trap the solids. The stack is enclosed in a corrosion and pressure resistant housing.
During filtration, the discs are tightly compressed together by a combination of the spring's power and the differential pressure, thus providing high filtration efficiency. Filtration occurs while water is percolating from the outer diameter to the inner diameter of the element. Depending on the micron rating, there are 400 micron discs to 20 micron discs available, stopping points in each track, thus creating unique in-depth filtration.
