EPM.F4 hydrophobic PTFE membrane filter cartridges for high-flow sterilizing filtration of air, gases, aggressive liquids and solvents

Description

EPM.F4 membrane filter сartridges are produced on the basis of the hydrophobic fluoroplastic (PTFE) membrane with the micron rating of 0.2 μm. The hydrophobic cartridge with absolute filtration rating is designed for sterilizing filtration of air, gases and aggressive liquids in medical, pharmaceuticals, food and other industries. Filter Cartridges EPM.F4 have high throughput and chemical compatibility. 

Main applications

  • Sterile filtration of air and gases in contact with the product.
  • Systems of air supply.
  • Ventilation of containers. 
  • At the input of filling devices.
  • At the input and output of bioreactors.
  • Sterile aeration of fermenters.
  • Sterile purging of equipment.
  • For filtration of aggressive liquids (acids, alkali, solvents, non-aqueous solutions, technical fluids) in the pH range of 1-14.
  • Sterilizing filtration of air, carbon dioxide, nitrogen, gas.

Features

Advantages

Fluoroplastic (PTFE) hydrophobic sterilizing membrane.

  • The membrane is stable to clogging by wetness, it provides high indexes of rate of air and gas flow rate at low differential pressure.
  • Wide chemical compatibility (pH 1-14).
  • Excellent thermochemical resistance.
  • Ensures full retention of bacteria, bacteriophages and aerosol particles in flows of compressed air and gases.

High strength of the structure of the cartridge

  • Reliable maintenance of filter integrity under heavy duty operational conditions.
  • Withstands multiple steam sterilization.
  • Guaranteed integrity after multiple sterilization cycles.

100% integrity control

  • Control performed with the “dry” method using aerosol particles and the “wet” method – diffusion test.
  • Guaranteed integrity and efficient operation of the device.

Quality and safety

EPM.F4 membrane filter cartridges are produced in accordance with the regulatory technical documents on product quality and are certified for use in the filtration processes of biopharmaceutical solutions. All EPM.F4 filter cartridges are subjected to purging from mechanical impurities with high-purity air and to 100% integrity control.  

Final assembly and packaging of membrane filter cartridges is carried out in special clean rooms (ISO class 5, 6         and 7) according to the classification of clean rooms in the pharmaceutical industry.  

EPM.F4 membrane filter cartridges undergo tests for bacterial and toxicological safety, materials used in the construction of filters have a minimal amount of extractable components and are approved for contact with intravenous drugs and food. 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.
