Alkin = Bauer Filter

Fri Jun 10, 2022 3:23 pm

Are the Alkin P-21 filter for the W-31 and the Bauer P21 Triplex filters fits most small Bauers the same?
Can I use the Bauer filters in an Alkin?
Lenght and dia are the same.
Thanks for any help.

Hello Scott
I have been using the Alkin aluminum P21 filter in my Bauer Purus triplex filter for a couple of years now without any issues. I believe the Bauer and Alkin p21 filters are the same size, so either should work in your Alkin. I like the ability to repack my own filter to save some money.

Thanks for the info.
Have the aluminum Alkin that I'm repacking.
Just wondering for the future.
There's a $8 difference between the 2 at Filter Techs.

Thanks for the info... I just ordered one pre-packed filter for the Bauer P21/X21 and one for the Alkin P21/X14... The Bauer was $37 and the Alkin was $45... Ordered from Filtertechs. So, I'll have them side by side to compare and will post my results here. I'll be using them on my Alkin Vertical W31.

Just ordered a Bauer filter with an air test kit.
Want to see how good my repacks work.
