This filter comes in a sealed bag and it’s important that you replace it into this bag once you are finished using it to prolong its life. The cartridge contains granulated charcoal, which is held between a small plastic grid and behind that there is some fabric. The fabric is only intended to hold the granules in place and not intended to be a dust filter. The dust filter 5M115P71 can go on top of this which is held in with a retainer.
