Membrane filters of EPM.F4 grade on the basis of hydrophobic PTFE for high-flow sterilizing filtration of air, gases, corrosive liquids and non-aqueous solutions entering into critical contact with the product

Home - Products - Filter cartridges - Filter cartridges - Membrane filter elements cartridge type (cartridges) - Membrane filters of EPM.F4 grade on the basis of hydrophobic PTFE for high-flow sterilizing filtration of air, gases, corrosive liquids and non-aqueous solutions entering into critical contact with the product

Description

Membrane filtering elements EPM.F4 are produced on the basis of a hydrophobic PTFE membrane with a pore size of 0.2 μm. Hydrophobic cartridge filter element with absolute filtration rating is intended for sterilizing filtration of air, compressed gases, corrosive liquids and non-aqueous solutions in medical, biopharmaceutical, food and other industries. Filter elements have high throughput and wide chemical compatibility.

 

Main applications


Sterile filtration of air and gases that enter into critical contact with the product:

  •  

·             Systems for supplying air;

·             When sterile "breathing" of the tanks;

·             In a cart, in a filling apparatus;

·             On entering and exiting the bioreactors.

·             Sterile filtration of fermenters.

·             Sterile venting of equipment.

·             For fine filtration of non-aqueous liquids (acids, alkalis, solvents, process fluids) in the range of pH 1-14.

 

FEATURES

BENEFITS

Hydrophobic sterilizing-grade membrane from a fluoropolymer (PTFE)

  • The membrane is not blocked with moisture and provides a high velocity of flow of air and gases at low pressure drop.
  •  Broad chemical compatibility (pH 1-14).
  •  Excellent thermo-chemical resistance.
  •  Ensure the complete arrest of the bacteria, bacteriophages and aerosol particles in the streams of compressed air and gases.

High-strength construction filter element

  • Reliable preservation of the integrity of the filter in harsh environments.
  •  Can withstand repeated steam sterilization.
  •  A guarantee of integrity after numerous sterilization cycles.

100% control

  • Monitoring is carried out "dry" method for aerosol particles and wet - diffusion test.
  •  Guarantee the integrity and efficient operation of the device.

Quality and Safety

 

Elements cartridge cartridge grade EPM.F4 are produced in accordance with regulatory and technical documents for product quality and certified for use in filtration processes of biopharmaceutical solutions. All EPM.F4 are stripped of mechanical impurities by highly purified air and subjected to 100% integrity control.

The final assembly and packaging of membrane filter elements is carried out in special clean zones (Cleanliness class 6 and 7) according to the classification of clean rooms in the pharmaceutical industry in accordance with the EU GGMP (Good Manufacturing Practice).

Membrane filtering elements EPM.F4 are subjected to tests for bacterial and toxicological safety, materials used in the design of filters have a minimum amount of extracted components. The safety of filter elements is established by a series of sanitary-chemical and toxic tests conducted in accordance with GOST R ISO 10993.1-99, GOST R ISO 10993.5-99, GOST R ISO 10993.10-00, "Collection of guidelines for toxicological and hygienic research of polymeric materials and products on their basis of medical designation ", Ministry of Health of the USSR. 1987
