EPV.S (KFV.S) microfiberglass pleated filter cartridges and capsules for effective protection of membrane cartridges and clarifying filtration of liquids

Description 

The EPV.S filter cartridge is produced on the basis of the increased density pleated filter material made of microfine glass fibers. Increased mechanical strength of the filter material is provided by Special protection layers, it precludes the problem of cross contamination because of superfine fibers dusting.

The filter material has high flow rate, adsorption capacity, strength and thermochemical resistance, therefore it provides effective filtration of solutions in a wide range of ph, especially of hard-to-filter solutions with residual opalescence, serums, albumins from plasma, viscous biological liquids, oils.

EPV.S high filtration efficiency (almost as of a membrane filter) combined with increased contamination capability typical of depth filters ensures cost saving high quality filtration in the processes of deep clarification and bioburden reducing.

Benefits 

Features

Advantages

Pleated cartridges based on borosilicate fiberglass

  • High filtration efficiency (> 99%).
  • Stable biochemical properties.
  • Produced with with 0.2, 0.5, 0.8 and 1 μm ratings.
  • Higher flow rates at low hydraulic resistance.

Excellent thermochemical resistance

  • Withstand multiple wash outs and sterilizations.

High strength, the stable matrix of the cartridge

  • Filter material structure precludes possibility of “dusting” and medium migration.
  • Reliable maintenance of filter integrity under heavy duty operational conditions.
  • Longer filter lifetime.

Main applications

  • In medicine and biopharmaceuticals to reduce bacterial load before membrane cartridges, for fine clarifying filtration of pharmaceutical liquids with a high content of suspended particles, for filtration of high-viscosity liquids, syrups, galenic preparations.
  • In the food industry for preliminary and final filtration of wines, for clarification of colored liquor products, finishing stages of beer filtration and beer-soft drinks with the purpose of increasing the shelf life, for fine cleaning of technological, drinking, mineral and bottled water, etc .
  • In other industries for the retention of suspensions, microparticles and colloids with a size of 0.2-1.0 microns or more.
