Unicel Replacement Cartridge Filter Elements are grouped into series based on the approximate outside diameter (O.D.) of the cartridge. For example, the 2000 Series is comprised of Cartridge Filter Elements between 2 and 2.99 inches in outer diameter; the 9000 Series is comprised of Cartridge Filter Elements with an outer diameter of 9 inches or greater.

Note that if the Cartridge Filter Element's length is either 4-15/16 or 6-15/16 it may be necessary to check the next larger series, the 5000 Series and 7000 Series, respectively. Within each series, Cartridge Filter Elements are listed sequentially by O.D. and length and identified according to end cap I.D. (inside diameter) and configuration, pleat count, and respective Original Equipment Manufacturer.
