CIF Series Crushable Incinerable Cartridges


The Facet CIF Series high efficiency pleated paper filter cartridges are designed to effectively remove solid contaminants from fuels.

Media with high efficiency throughout the life of the cartridge is available in ratings from .5 to 5 microns. We recommend replacing cartridges when the differential pressure reaches 15 psi (1.03 bar). Effective life above 15 psi (1.03 bar) is minimal.

All cartridges are 6" (152 mm) outside diameter. To simplify maintenance, we offer one piece cartridges in three lengths:

  • single-length of 14½" (370 mm)
  • double-length of 28¾" (730 mm)
  • triple-length of 43¼" (1090 mm).

One triple-length cartridge replaces three single-length.

To use the CIF Series cartridge requires the one time installation of either a single, double or triple length centre tube kit. Each kit contains all necessary hardware and components required to convert any housing fitted for 6" (152 mm) OD x 3½" (89 mm) ID diameter cartridges.

These high efficiency pleated paper filter cartridges designed to effectively remove solid contaminants in applications such as:

  • Gasoline
  • Coolants
  • Kerosene
  • Rolling Oils
  • Diesel
  • Jet Fuel
  •  AV-Gas
  • Industrial Water
  •  Solvents (Stoddard and Ketone Based)

The filtration of potable liquids is not recommended with this series of filter cartridges.

We recommend replacing cartridges when the differential pressure reaches 15 psi. Effective life above 15 psi is minimal.
