Two ways to increase the lifetime of a filter are to increase the amount of contamination it can handle or to improve the effectiveness of cleaning procedures. PEPLYN HA combines both of these features in its advanced pleated construction. PEPLYN HA utilizes polypropylene filter media and support materials, which balance a high surface area and closely controlled porosity, in a configuration that maximizes the cleaning efficiency of the cartridge. Capture of larger particles is predominantly on the surface of the media, where the rigid, open pleat structure ensures that backwash cleaning provides effective removal. Smaller particles are retained throughout the depth of the graded density PEPLYN media, providing accurately defined retention under wide extremes of operating conditions.
Minimising the cost of microbiological stabilisation per unit volume whilst maintaining quality and product characteristics is a key requirement within beverage production. BEVPOR PS is an advanced membrane filter cartridge designed for the beverage industry to meet and surpass these criteria. Specifically developed as a beverage grade cartridge, BEVPOR PS utilises an advanced polyethersulphone membrane configured to provide high flow and cost effective performance. The membrane has an asymmetric pore structure which provides graded filtration throughout its depth, resulting in increased capacity to hold contaminants. Componentry has been selected to maximise mechanical strength and chemical compatibility enabling the filter to withstand repeated chemical cleaning and sterilisation.
