Sanitary Liquid Filters
Filters in both disposable and replacement cartridge configurations are
available in a sanitary design for applications of coarse straining thru sub-micron
absolute filtration in virtually limitless media materials, sizes, flow rates and process
parameters. Finer filtration is also available through ultrafiltration and reverse
osmosis. Rated filters for use in validated processes are available with QA assurance
documents and certifications.
Filters similar to those used for liquid applications, are used for gas
filtration in ultrapure and sterile environments including reactive and inert gases with
the variety of size, style and materials above, as well as a broad range of process
parameters. Units can be selected as disposable or replacement cartridge.
Sanitary Vent Filters
Sanitary vent filters are commonly used in purified and sterile
applications where venting of containers, vessels or piping is required, and where
invasive contamination must be avoided. Application data including maximum flows, as well
as steam sterilization and temperature must be considered during selection.
Sintered Metal Filters
Sintered metal elements provide optional strength, chemical and
temperature resistance and other advantages for special applications where other materials
cannot withstand the service or duty.
Sanitary Screen Filters
Where small volumes of particulate matter must be removed from process
lines, screen filters are inexpensive and easy to mount, fitting between (2) two tri-clamp
ferrules in lieu of a standard gasket. Although not suitable for high pressures, these
units are excellent in easy access applications requiring regular disassembly.
Sanitary Basket Filters
Basket filtration provides an easy inexpensive method for removal of
particulate in substantial volume using compact, often cleanable modular units. Both
single and double screen units are available in materials ranging from Rayon to Stainless
Steel. Pore sizes vary from 2 micron to 1/4 inch and units can be equipped with most
sanitary features in both in-line and top opening housing configurations.
Similar in size and configuration to basket filtration, strainers are
used for removal of larger particulate and are often used for protection prior to
mechanical equipment and instruments.
