Filter Housings for Depth Filter Modules

Stainless Steel Housings Designed for the Biopharmaceutical Industry

Pall Corporation has used design, cost, and industry expectation as the creative foundation of our depth filter technology. In combination with our stringent manufacturing standards, we have developed a comprehensive line of depth filter modules, housings, and capsules for all levels of biopharmaceutical processing. Our depth filter technology is ideal for the following applications:

 

    • Filtration of fermenter broth
    • Removal of activated carbon
    • Serum filtration
    • Filtration of toxic products
    • Blood plasma fractionation
    • Removal of filter aid and precipitates
    • Separation of mammalian cells
    • Removal of catalysts

Pall Advanta™ Housings for SUPRAdisc™ Modules

Designed Performance with Options for Customization

Pall Advanta Housings for SUPRAdisc Modules were developed for integration into custom-built systems and uniquely large scale applications. The design is derived from a base model validated for clean-in-place, steam-in-place, and full drainability in accordance with ASME BPE-2005 and are updated to future addenda. Customized designs include split-dome, skid integration, and housing bowl lifting devices.

The Pall Advanta for SUPRAdisc housing line is Pall's flagship housing technology for customized designed solutions. The manufacture of each housing begins with base engineering drawings modified to meet all your design and documentation requests.




Features and Benefits

Each housing can be designed with the following optional features:

  • Validated for steam-in-place (SIP), cleaning-in-place (CIP)/riboflavin removal, and drainability per ASME BPE-2005
  • Complete documentation package available on request, including Drainability certificate, Cleanability certificate, material certificates, vessel calculations, and quality plan
  • Available in single and multi-round configurations
  • All designs available with split dome for housing height restrictions
  • Lifting devices available for both housing bowl and internal sets

Pall Advanta Housings for SUPRAcap™ 200 Modules

Unique Disposable Solution for Critical API and Biopharmaceutical Applications

This unique pressure vessel is designed specifically for the SUPRAcap 200 encapsulated module. This product utilizes the same filter media as standard SUPRAdisc and
SUPRAdisc II modules, but is designed to protect operators from potentially dangerous fumes, catalysts, or activated carbon. The compartmentalized design of the pressure
vessel minimizes product contact for easy cleaning.

Pall Advanta Housings for SUPRAcap 200 Modules are the only housings in the industry capable of holding encapsulated process scale modules with an identical flow path to traditional depth filter modules. Our encapsulated modules are offered in all of our media grades; therefore, selection of the appropriate filter area and media can be determined from previous filterability studies, without the need to revalidate a specific type or style of module.

Features and Benefits

  • The combination of full encapsulation of the filter module and minimized contact with stainless steel surfaces yields significant reduction in cleaning costs
  • Our capsule dramatically reduces void volume in comparison to traditional modules, and housing hold up volume is less than standard stainless steel housing
  • No cross-contamination risks 
  • All components have material certification

For additional information on SUPRAcap 200 Modules please refer to the product datasheet.

Additional Information about Depth Filter Modules

Pall depth filter modules combine the advantages of conventional depth filter sheets with enclosed filters. We offer a completely scalable product line:

Each module is capable of holding media designed to filter products at a retention of 0.1 – 70 μm with the lowest extractable concentrations in the industry.
