PTFE

High purity PTFE membrane filter media provides superior chemical resistance for a broad range of industrial applications. With retention ratings as fine as 0.01μ (10 nanometers), consistent contaminant removal is achieved in aggressive fluids and organic solvents. In air/gas/vent applications, the single-layer PTFE membrane delivers superior hydrophobicity versus polypropylene or PVDF; offering a superior option to preclude water wetting and associated diminished flow. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness with a validated product offering.

BRPTFE Series

BRPTFE-Series High Purity Bio-Reduction Grade PTFE Filter Cartridges, with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane, provide reliable high-LRV reduction of microorganisms in bio-process applications where the high cost of a fully-validated pharmaceutical-grade cartridge is not required. Whether it’s fermentation feed air, compressed gas, or a process venting application, the BRPTFE offers a high-flow, high-capacity membrane filter with exceptional hydrophobicity. The superior flow rate allows for economical costs of system design & operation. Proven 7.4 LRV retention of aerosolized bacteriophage provides reliable bioburden reduction and prevention of process contamination. Tolerates multiple sterilization cycles by autoclave or in-situ steaming. 100% integrity tested in production. Manufactured in a clean-room environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness.

 

Typical Applications:

  • Fermentation feed air
  • Compressed air & gases
  • Process venting

PPTFE Series

PPTFE-Series High Purity Pharmaceutical Grade PTFE Filter Cartridges, with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane, provide optimized filtration performance in sterile air/gas filtration and venting applications. The single layer PTFE membrane, with over twice the hydrophobicity of polypropylene or PVDF, is the best choice to prevent water intrusion and resulting microbial growth. Each PPTFE cartridge is integrity tested during manufacturing and is supported by a validation guide for regulatory compliance. PPTFE elements are fully validated as sterilizing grade filters in liquids in accordance with HIMA and ASTM F838-05 guidelines and in gases through full retention of the MS2 phage in an aerosol challenge. Manufactured in a cleanroom environment to maintain high standards of purity and cleanliness.

 

Typical Applications:

  • Sterile gas filtration of fermentor inlets
  • Off‐gassing downstream of fermentors and bioreactors
  • Autoclave vent filters
  • WFI tank vents
  • Sterile air supply for service gases (i.e. filling lines in blow‐fill‐seal systems)
