Shares of Pall Corp., a maker of water-filtration and purification systems, fell 5 percent in early trading Monday after the company said it anticipated that 2013 sales would be lower than expected.

The Port Washington company included its updated 2013 forecast in a filing to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, saying first-quarter orders are down about 4 percent.

The company also said it expected 2013 earnings per share would be on the low end of the $3.05 to $3.25 range it released in September.

By 11 a.m., Pall’s stock was down $3.23, to 60.72 per share.

The company included the updated estimates in slides that chief executive Lawrence Kingsley will present on Tuesday at the Baird Industrial Conference in Chicago.
