Chemical Compatibility
This chart is intended only as a Guide. Users should verify chemical compatibility based upon experimentation with specific filter under actual use conditions:
chemical compatibility is affected by many variables, including temperature, concentration and length of exposure.
- Chemical compatibility data :This data is presented as a customer service. Accuracy can not be guaranteed.
- Variables in customer use such as concentrations, purity, temperature, pressure, time and various chemical combinations prevent complete accuracy.
Data Interpretation Chemical Compatibility Observations are Divided into Three Categories as Follows :
R - Recommended : No significant changes observed in performance, physical properties, dimensions or visible indication of chemical attack of the cartridge filter.
LR - Limited Recommended : Moderate changes in physical properties or dimensions of the cartridge filter were observed.
Filter may be suitable for short-term exposure at low pressure and ambient temperatures.
NR - Not Recommended : The cartridge filter is basically unstable. In most cases, extensive shrinking or swelling occurs. Filter may gradually weaken or partially dissolve after extended exposure Temperatures.
