The Vorex® is a nominally rated microfiber cartridge that works well as either a pre-filter or final filter in a wide range of applications including industrial, chemical process, food & beverage, cosmetics and water.

Our Vorex® filters are manufactured through an exclusive process that thermally bonds pure polypropylene microfibers. Lower density fibers are at the surface and sequentially higher density fibers are used toward the center. This process traps particles more evenly throughout the cross section.
