The Wombat element is a pleated filter element designed for flow from in to out and for a high contamination retention capacity combined with high filtration efficiency. The Wombat element can be installed in every common bag filter and can replace the existing filter bag. An adapter kit must be used when installing the Wombat filter element. It is initially required and consists of a retainer basket and seal. For filtering magnetic particles from the fluid, magnetic rods are available as an accessory.
