Innovative Products From Kalbag Filters 

With years of experience and in depth knowledge, we have developed a superior range of white thick wall cartridge. RBCM (resin bonded cellulose melamine).

Cartridge / Cellulose Cartridge is made from cellulose fibers, which are essentially bonded together by a melamine resin, so as to make a solid, durable as well as porous structure. This ensures a stronger cartridge which is less subjected to collapse. Also, the cartridge material meets the FDA specifications, making it totally safe for applications regarding beverages, potable drinking water, cosmetics and syrups etc. The clean white cellulose fiber structure will not leave any taste, odor or color to the liquid being filtrated, when in use within the suggested temperature range.

We offer two styles of this cartridge: grooved and un-grooved. Excellent in dirt holding capacity, the grooved cartridge is constructed to provide 68% more surface area. While the un-grooved cartridge is suitable for high differential pressure applications like paint, ink, and high viscosity fluids, etc. Also, it is superior in it's ability to coalesce water when utilized in the air filtration applications. Both the varieties are designed to withstand temperatures up to 120 degrees Celsius, in closed circuit water applications with no oxidizing air.  

RBCM cartridges are accessible in nominal porosity of 100 microns to 0.1 micron, and the sizes differ from 150 mm to 250 mm height. 

Chemical Compatibility

The cross link of melamine resin and cellulose fibers creates an extremely resistant structure, which is compatible with almost all liquids and moderate chemicals. The Cellulose Cartridge is appropriate for many commercial / industrial filtration applications, such as drinking water, gasoline, alcohols, edible oils, paints & inks, photographic solutions.
