CUNO High Flow Filtration System
The CUNO High Flow Filtration System is an advanced design that uses 3M Innovation and CUNO’s extensive
filtration experience to deliver a high flow filter in a compact housing design. When compared to conventional
cartridge systems, this system provides the following advantages:
High Flow Capability
The unique construction of CUNO High Flow Filters (patent
pending) permits flow rates of up to 500 gpm in a single cartridge.
The result? Fewer filter elements to accommodate your flow
requirements. In fact, the CUNO High Flow Filtration System
requires as few as one-tenth the number of elements as
competitive 2.5” pleated cartridges (see Figure 1).
Compact Design
Using fewer elements combined with an outside-to-in flow path
enables a reduction in the size of housing required for your
application. The CUNO High Flow Housing takes up as little as
one-half the size of competitive housings for a given flow rate.
The result is lower capital investment costs and a compact
footprint that saves valuable plant space (see Figure 1).
Ease of Use
The CUNO High Flow Filtration System is designed
with ease-of-use in mind. From a user-friendly,
ergonomically designed handle that makes cartridge
installation and removal easier without the use of
special tools or other hardware, to a unique
"twist-to-lock" cartridge seating mechanism that
provides a positive seal, the CUNO High Flow System
facilitates easy operation and maintenance of your
filter system.

Compound Radial Pleat design maximizes usable
High Performance Media in an Innovative Design
media surface area
CUNO High Flow Filters are designed using state-of-the-art
technology, optimizing both performance and effluent quality to ensure
customer satisfaction. The elements use a unique pleat design that
results in a high usable filtering surface area per filter.
Radial pleat design
3M Innovation is at the heart of the CUNO High Flow Filter. A patent
pending compound radial pleat design maximizes the usable surface
area per filter. Blown microfiber forms the basis of the filter media,
which is made to tightly controlled fiber diameter specifications to
produce a media with absolute rated particle retention characteristics.
Our unique manufacturing process embosses the media to produce a
more uniform pleat pattern, which, in turn, allows greater utilization of
the media by evenly distributing the fluid throughout the entire filter
structure. This results in consistent particle retention in a compact,
space-saving design.

The CUNO High Flow Filter contains several features to combine high
performance with easy operation.
