Pleated Membrane Cartridge Filters

Food & Beverage Pleated Membrane Filters

Pleated Membrane Filter CartridgesCLEARFLOW™
Serial layers of depth media and membrane provide long lasting protection of final filters

Extended life and high retention efficiency make Clearflow an ideal filter for the clarification of particulate-laden solutions as commonly found in food and beverage production.

At the heart of the Clearflow design is a serial layer matrix of depth media and polyethersulfone (PES) membrane. This combination offers superior flow and long-lasting protection for downstream final filters. Clearflow cartridges are also non-fiber-releasing and will not unload contaminants, even under pulsing conditions.

Clearflow filter cartridges are available in 0.2,0.5, or 0.8µm nominal ratings, and with your choice of glass fiber or polypropylene prefiltration media. They are manufactured in a certified cleanroom environment. The Biological Grade version provides qualitative microbial retention. General Grade cartridges are for prefiltration applications, and are bulk packaged and economically priced.

CLARIFLOW® GENERAL GRADE
Hydrophilic polyethersulfone (PES) membrane for aqueous liquid filtration applications

Clariflow general grade filter cartridges are designed for general purpose use in the filtration of high-purity liquids and aqueous chemicals. The mirrored-anisotropic Polyethersulfone (PES) membrane is inherently hydrophilic and has a pore morphology that delivers exceptionally high flow rates. Because there are no added surfactants or wetting agents, and the support layers and structure are all-polypropylene, the filter exhibits low extractables, broad chemical compatibility and good resistance to hydrolysis.

CLARIFLOW® WATER SERVICE GRADE
Hydrophilic polyethersulfone (PES) membrane for cost-effective purification

Clariflow water service grade filter cartridges are cost-effective alternatives to Clariflow E & G grade cartridges for the filtration of a variety of aqueous liquids. The water service cartridge is built around a unique polyethersulfone (PES) membrane that is inherently hydrophilic, and contains no added surfactants or wetting agents. It delivers clean filtrates, flow rates, extended service life and excellent resistance to hydrolysis. Water service cartridges are fabricated under cleanroom conditions.

CLARIFLOW WINE
Pleated polyethersulfone (PES) membrane for final filtration of wine and beverages

Extended life and absolute retention efficiency make the Clariflow Wine product an ideal filter for the clarification of wine. At the heart of this design is a special membrane composed of polyethersulfone (PES). Choosing either the 0.65 or 0.45µm pore sizes for red and white wines, PES membrane offers superior flow, extended on-stream life, and the consistent removal of micro-organisms and particulate.

Clariflow Wine cartridges are inherently hydrophilic, and contain no added surfactants or wetting agents. The PES membrane also exhibits low color-binding characteristics and ensures that the cartridge will not affect the taste of the wine being processed. Each cartridge is manufactured in a certified cleanroom environment in accordance with a quality system consistent with the requirements of ISO 9001 certification and guidelines.

PROFLOW™ II ABR
Pleated PTFE membrane cartridge for sterile venting and gas delivery

The ProflowII Aerosol Bacterial Retentive (ABR) cartridge (0.2µm) is validated to produce sterile air utilizing a bacterial aerosol challenge (See the Validation Guide for the test protocol). This methodology best emulates the actual bacterial removal action of the filter in use as a hydrophobic vent. ProflowII ABR exhibits some of the highest air flow rates for sterilizing grade air filters built of pleated expanded PTFE membrane. Users who require the ultimate in flow rate for tank venting and sterile air supply will find the ProflowII ABR to be their filter of choice. This cartridge is fabricated, 100% integrity tested, and packaged utilizing a certified cleanroom to guarantee consistent performance and quality.

PROFLOW™II ABR MINI-CAPSULES
Pleated PTFE membrane capsules for sterile venting & gas delivery

ProflowII Aerosol Bacterial Retentive (ABR) capsules are validated to produce sterile air for tank venting and air supply applications. These capsules exhibit some of the highest air flow rates of any sterilizing grade filters and are offered in a choice of three sizes to meet specific gas delivery requirements. The encapsulated design maximizes efficiency by providing faster, easier changeout without laborious cleaning procedures. Eliminating the need to open reusable housings minimizes the chance of introducing contamination into the process.
