Tri-Lobal Spiral High Efficiency
Long-Life Depth Filtration Platform

Waco is now offering Jonell Systems TRI-SHiElD, a new media platform for high-performance depth filtration. With TRI-SHiELD, you can now solve a wide range of complex filtration challenges plaguing your processes. 

Designed exclusively for the liquid and gas filtration applications, TRI-SHiELD uses multiple thermally bonded media layers, each with different denier fibers, to deliver true gradient density. The use of blended media with Tri-Lobal fibers mixed with cylindrical fibers gives this media a unique advantage.

New Depth Filtration Media Technology:

  • The patent-pending TRI-SHiELD™ media platform has been developed to create superior depth filtration technology to be used in a wide variety of gas and liquid applications.

  • The highly engineered blend of fibers are thermally bonded in multiple unique spiral layers of advanced treated media to provide optimal efficiency, dirt loading, and a reduced cost of ownership to protect your critical process equipment.

  • Our blend of Tri-Lobal and synthetic fibers provide a larger effective surface area per media volume and less flow resistance than traditional fibers resulting in extremely high removal efficiencies. 

True Gradient Depth Construction:

High Contaminant Loading

TRI-SHiELD is engineered with multiple thermally bonded layers to improve contaminant loading capacity.

High Efficiency

Because of TRI-SHiELD’s unique design, the multiple layers allow for increased filtering surface area.

High Adaptability

TRI-SHiELD’s construction is customizable and allows for you to engineer the efficiency of each layer specific to the needs of your application.

TRI-SHiELD for Liquid Applications:

TRI-SHiELD delivers improved efficiency with up to 5X lower pressure drop at startup and increased element run cycles.

The TRI-SHiELD media technology has been used to develop a wide range of liquid filtration cartridges that are silicone and surfactant-free. TRI-SHiELD is used in a range of applications serving the chemical, food & beverage, oil & gas, petrochemical, and other general industrial markets.

Currently available in Polyester. Polypropylene will be released soon, contact us for availability.
