The Torpedo Series from Coleman Filter Company is a 6” OD string wound filter element 60” in length (other lengths available). They provide more depth (up to 1100 cubic inches) to trap and remove a larger volume of particles and contaminants than their pleated competition. Depending upon the micron, flow rates of up to 500 GPM (at 150 PSI) can be achieved per filter. These elements replace elements from Pall, 3M, FTC, Fil-Trek, Parker, Shelco, Jonell, PecoFacet, Global and others.
When competing head-to-head with any pleated filter (single pleat, multi-pleat, radial pleat, laid over pleat, etc.) in those applications, the Torpedo is outperforming them by multiples of 5 or more. Simply put, if you are using a pleated filter in any of these applications you can expect to see savings not only in direct filter consumption cost but also will see reduced downtime, maintenance and labor costs.
