We have talked about how to procure filters and what specifications to look for, but selecting the filter according to the specifications doesn’t ensure the best results if a filter is not employed properly. In this article, we will discuss a few factors which can impair a filter's performance.

I hope you have read these 2 articles:


Whenever you are experiencing sub-optimal results even after changing filters, below are some possibilities which should be checked for:

  1. Collapsed center tube
  2. Inconsistent media quality
  3. Damaged or burst filter media – fatigue
  4. Bypass at filter media seam
  5. Bypass due to adhesive failure
  6. Damaged gasket or O-ring seal
  7. Bypass valve jammed in open/closed position
  8. Installation error, installing a filter in the opposite flow direction
  9. Bypass valve leakage
  10. Misaligned filter and seal

If none of the above factors contribute to the sub-optimal functioning of your filters we suggest you contact the Minimac Consulting team for required filter calculations and further investigations.
