These figures have been determined in accordance with in-house test methods and the methods of the Technical / Analytical Work Group within the European Depth Filtration Association.
1The permeability was measured under test conditions with clean water at 20 °C (68 °F) and a Δp of 1 bar (14.5 psi).
Depending upon the application and the nature of the adsorbed contaminants, AKS series filter sheets may be regenerated by means of rinsing with clean water in the forward direction. However, the achievable regeneration efficiency must be determined by monitoring filtrate quality.
Maximum backpressure during all operations is 0 bar. Any backpressure will cause damages to the sheet media.

General Instructions for UseIn order to maximize the required adsorption of impurities, particle filtration must occur upstream of carbon-impregnated filter sheets.
Filtration GuidelinesTypical flux rates used on food and beverage fluids are 150-250 L/m2/h (3.7-6.2 gal/ft2/h).
Higher fluxes may be possible according to the application. Due to the various factors, which may affect the adsorption process, Pall recommends

16" diameter (410 mm), 19 cells, 4.5 m² area
- Filter sheets produced in a controlled environment
- Manufactured according to ISO 9001:2008 certified Quality Management System
Food Contact CompliancePlease refer to the Pall website www.pall.com/foodandbev for a Declaration of Compliance to specific National Legislation and/or Regional Regulatory requirements for food contact use.
Cellulose, powdered activated carbon, diatomaceous earth (DE, Kieselguhr)
At an optimized flow rate, the probability of contact between the impurities and carbon particles is greater in
Macro- and mesopores can generally be regarded as the highways into the carbon particle, and are crucial for adsorption kinetics. Macropores are used for
Small molecules, such as methylene blue, which has a molecular weight of 319.86 Dalton, are mainly captured in micropores. Typically, over 20 g/m2 methylene blue is adsorbed.
