VPG-A6 Inline Filter

SKU: 2920-01-1000

Filtration down to 2 nm and below

Product Details

The VPG-A6 in-line filter is an ultra-high efficiency, ultra-low pressure drop filter designed for Vapor and Process Gas (VPG) filtration. This patent-protected filter is made from Nano Filtration Media comprised of sintered stainless steel fibers of a homogenous construction resulting in efficiency and pressure drop capabilities not previously attainable by conventional sintered metal filter media construction. Made from 100% 316SS, this filter is typically used in compressed gas lines for particle removal or downstream of a vaporizer under vacuum flow conditions to remove particles from a gas/vapor mixture. The VPG-A6 features a solid core – providing more thermal mass than conventional in-line filters, making a better choice for heated filtration downstream of a vaporizer.
