Explaining our Naming Convention

On our websites and documents, you may notice that we talk a lot about PA4050s or PE3030s. What do these model numbers mean? There’s actually a method to the madness.

The first two figures indicate the product family. PA refers to air separation while PE refers to air dehydration. The next four digits are informative as well. The “4050” part of PA4050 means that the fiber bundle is approximately four inches in diameter by five feet long. Therefor the PE3030 means that the product is used for air dehydration and is approximately three inches in diameter by three feet long.

To get even more specific, the remaining sequential 6 digits identify fiber type, cap or shell variations and even manufacturing processes. So here’s a pop quiz. What do these 3 model numbers tell you? The answers are in the data sheets linked below.
