Fluorodyne® II DJL - Novasip™ Capsules

These 0.1 micron-rated filters with serial layer (0.2/0.1 micron) membrane construction assure high flow rates compared with other 0.1 micron (and even some 0.2 micron)-rated filters. Fluorodyne II grade DJL filters are validated for removal of Acholeplasma laidlawii mycoplasma (ATCC 28206) with a typical TR >1011 and retention of Brevundimonas diminuta (ATCC 19146) at 107 CFU/cm² effective filter area (EFA). This allows enhanced sterilization assurance as well as efficient mycoplasma control.

Novasip™ capsules are the first and only single-use filter capsules that can be sterilized by in-line steaming (SIP). These robust filter capsules are an ideal low-maintenance alternative to a stainless steel housing and cartridge assembly, often still considered the only option when a filter must be integrated into an SIP system. Novasip capsules are certified for use in pharmaceutical manufacturing environments and sized for liquid volumes of 30 L to 500 L or in low-to-moderate flow air/gas/vent applications.

Features and Benefits

  • Low installation cost - up to 80% less than a comparable stainless steel system
  • Steam-in-place capability with no housing cleaning or maintenance
  • Clear housing for easy venting 
  • Laser-etched serial number for easy identification 
  • New design sanitary valves
    • Non-removable for safety 
    • Non-threaded for cleanliness
  • Integral Stäubli*-compatible vent valve enables direct on-line connection to integrity test equipment
  • Non-rotating hose barb drain for safe and hygienic operation
  • Available in a range of media and removal ratings
    * Stäubli is a trademark of Stäubli AG
