EPM.SK polyamide and fiberglass membrane filter cartridges for efficient clarifying filtration of liquids with high concentration of particles and microorganisms in various application fields

 

 

Description

EPM.SK is a composite membrane cartridge that combines mechanisms of depth and membrane filtration. The basis of EPM.SK is the polyamide hydrophilic membrane combined with a microfiber depth prefilter. EPM.SK is developed for application in the processes that require significant reducing of contamination and bioburden, providing high performance and reliable removal of particles and microorganisms of the specified size. EPM.SK filters have high flow rate, increased contamination capability and wide chemical compatibility.

Main applications 

  • In medicine and biopharmacy for treatment from mechanical impurities 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 polishing filtration of non-alcoholic beer, wine, premium class liqueurs and spirits, for microbiological treatment of still bottled water, for final filtration of alcoholic-free and low-alcoholic beverages, for filtration of reagents, water preparations.  
  • In other industries for fine filtration of liquid media  from particles sized 0.8 – 1 μm and more.

Quality and safety

EPM.F 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.F 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.F 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 values of EPM.SK

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.

*All values are given for the filter cartridges 10” (250 mm) height. To obtain maximum permissible diffusion values for filter cartridges 20” (500 mm) and 30” (750 mm) height the diffusion values for the standard (10”) cartridge should be multiplied by 2 or 3 respectively.    

Bacterial endotoxins (pyrogenicity)

Filtrate samples are examined for bacterial endotoxin (BE) content using the LAL test. BE content – 0.05 EU/ml, the allowable value for water intended for preparation of injection solutions is less than 0.25 EU/ml.
