Membrane filters of grade EPMPP on the basis of polypropylene for high-flow sterilizing filtration of air and gases

Home - Products - Filter cartridges - Filter cartridges - Membrane filter elements cartridge type (cartridges) - Membrane filters of grade EPMPP on the basis of polypropylene for high-flow sterilizing filtration of air and gases

Description


Membrane filter elements EPMPP are produced on the basis of a hydrophobic polypropylene (PP) membrane with a pore size of 0.2 μm. A hydrophobic cartridge filter element with an absolute filtration rating is designed for sterilizing air filtration, gaseous media and corrosive liquids compatible with the filter element material. Filter elements EPMPP have high throughput and wide chemical compatibility.

 

Main applications


Sterilizing filtration of air and gases, which enter into critical contact with the product.

  • In air supply systems.

  • Sterile filtration of fermentors.

  • Sterile blowdown of equipment.

 

FEATURES

BENEFITS

A hydrophobic membrane made of polypropylene (PP)

  • The membrane is not blocked with moisture and provides a high velocity of flow of air and gases at low pressure drop.
  •  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 effective operation of the product.

Quality and Safety


Elements of cartridge membranes EPMPP are produced in accordance with regulatory and technical documents for product quality and are certified for use in the filtration of biopharmaceutical solutions and food products. All EPMPPs are subjected to 100% integrity control. The control is carried out by a "dry" method on aerosol particles (penetration test for aerosol particles 0.2-0.3 μm in size.) This test completely correlates with the Brevundimonas divinuta aerosol test with a concentration of 2 × 1010 CFU / cm3. Test parameters for technical specialists TECHNOFILTER.

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 filter elements EPMPP 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
