Sanitization and sterilization

Sterilization of Capsules is performed by autoclaving at temperature 121°С for 30 minutes after attainment of set-point temperature.

KFM.K Capsules are able to withstand at least 5 sterilization cycles by autoclaving at P = 0,1 MPa and t=121 ± 1°С. Note! It is prohibited to sterilize Capsule by steam-in-line.

*It is necessary to perform integrity testing of Capsules after every autoclaving cycle in case of sterilizing filtration and re-using. The integrity testing can be performed using automatic integrity test devices, for example TECHNOCHECK series.

KFM.K Capsules are compatible with wide variety of chemical substances.

For detailed instructions on operation Capsules please contact technical specialists of Technofilter RME.

Safety

Quality and Certification

All membrane filter elements used for production of KFM.K Capsules are subjected to wash out from organic and mechanical impurities with high-purity water and to 100% integrity control.

KFM.K Capsules are added to the Register of Medical Devices of the Ministry of health of the Russian Federation.

The Capsules are certified for use in Medical Industry and Sanitary and Epidemiological Station, they are authorized to use in Food industry. Safety of filter cartridges is determined by a series of sanitary and chemical tests, and toxicology tests in compliance with GOST R ISO 10993.1-99, GOST R ISO 10993.5-99, GOST R ISO 10993.10-00.
