Micron Ratings - A Better Understanding & Breakdown


A 5 micron rating works well in many industries, including the food and beverage industry. This rating filters a little less than the 5 micron rating. Filters with a 10 micron rating can remove some unseen materials from liquid but not bacteria or viruses.

An important part of any filtration system is the filter’s micron rating. It helps determine the amount and size of debris that gets filtered or removed from liquids. Micron ratings can give important information in their number alone. Being able to effectively read and understand micron ratings allows you to easily decide between different filtration options. Below, we have provided information about several common micron ratings used in industrial strength filtration systems.

5 Micron

Filters with a 5 micron rating remove a large amount of debris from liquid. While there are other, smaller micron ratings, those filters below 5 micron are prone to intense clogging or quick debris buildup. The smaller the micron rating, the faster the filter fills up. To prevent clogging, it is sometimes suggested to use more than one filter when there are a lot of particles, dirt, and debris to be filtered. A 5 micron rating works well in many industries, including the food and beverage industry.


10 Micron

This rating filters a little less than the 5 micron rating. Filters with a 10 micron rating can remove some unseen materials from liquid but not bacteria or viruses. However, 10 micron is still very small and can benefit many industries, from oil to chemical plants, because of their ability to filter so much. Like the micron ratings lower than this, 10 micron rated filters tend to clog quickly.
