EPM.K filter cartridges for clarifying, final and biological filtration of liquids

Description

EPM.K membrane filter cartridges are produced by the proprietary technology of Technofilter RME Ltd on the basis of the polyamide hydrophilic membrane with the micron ratings of 0.1 - 3 μm. Filter cartridges have high throughput and wide chemical compatibility. The hydrophilic polyamide membrane makes EPM.K ideal for application in the processes of filtration of water and alkaline solutions, liquids with low, normal and high pH level.

Features

Advantages

Proprietary polyamide hydrophilic membrane Nylon 6+66

  • Applied to solve a wide range of tasks – from preliminary purification to biological filtration and sterilization.
  • Wide chemical compatibility.

Main applications 

  • In medicine and biopharmacy for removal of mechanical contaminants and clarifying of parenteral and ophthalmic solutions, antibiotics, culture, bacterial and enzymatic media, biologics and vaccines, vitamin and galenic preparations, buffer solutions, water for pharmaceutical use (water for injection, pyrogen-free water, water for rinsing, etc.).
  • In beverage industry for biological, cold and polishing filtration of beer, wine, liqueurs of premium-class quality, for microbiological treatment of still bottled water, for finish filtration of low-alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, recipes and rinsing water. 
  • In microelectronics, radiotechnics and biochemistry for finish treatment of deionized water.
  • In other industries for fine filtration of liquid media from particles ≥ 0.1 μm.

Quality and safety

EPM.K 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.K filter cartridges are subjected to wash out from organic and mechanical impurities with high-purity water and to 100% integrity control.  

Wash out, integrity control, drying, 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.K 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.

Integrity test

In the course of testing each membrane filter cartridge is integrity tested by the non-destructive physical method of determination of rate of air passing through the water wetted membrane.
