Donaldson P-GS Sintered Stainless Steel Filter Element    

Applications: Gases, Liquids, Steam
Media Type: Depth
Media Material: Sintered Stainless Steel (Hydrophilic)
Micron Ratings: 1/1.2, 5, 25
Rating Type: Absolute

The P-GS 5 micron filter element, used for filtration of steam, gas, and liquid, exceeds 3-A guidelines for the production of culinary steam under Accepted Practice T609-03. Improved steam quality ensures longer service life of the filter elements being sterilized and increases the efficiency of the entire process.

Improving the quality of steam used for filter sterilization ensures longer service life of those filters. When steam is used in culinary and other food applications such as cooking, sterilization and packaging, purifying that steam is essential to maintain integrity of the product and associated equipment. Ultrex P-GS filters have been designed to filter steam with particle retention rates from 1 to 25 µm.    

  • Absolute retention rates of 1 µm, 5 µm and 25 µm
  • Filter media is sintered 316L stainless steel with 50% porosity to ensure high dirt holding capacity and low pressure drop 
  • End caps are 304 stainless steel 
  • Can withstand a differential pressure of 75 psi 
  • Regenerable in an ultrasonic bath
  • Meets U.S. FDA CFR and 1935/2004/EC requirements for food and beverage


There are several terms used for steam. Process steam is used in process applications as a source of energy for process heating, pressure control and mechanical drives. Culinary steam can be direct injected during food processing. Culinary steam needs to meet 3-A Culinary Standards for the dairy industry. Process steam does not generally come in contact with the final product whereas culinary steam can, and often does, come in direct contact with the final product.
