Filter arrangements include a barrier media in the form of fluted media
treated with a deposit of fine fibers. The media is particularly
advantageous in high temperature (greater than 140 to 240.degree. F.)
systems. Such systems may include engine systems, gas turbine systems,
and fuel cell systems. Filter arrangements may take the form of media
packs having a circular cross-section or a racetrack shaped
cross-section, or media packs formed in a panel configuration.
