Profile® II Filter Cartridges

Pall Profile II filters provide:

  • Absolute removal ratings for reliability
  • Built in prefiltration for economy
  • Revolutionary new construction for long service life and high flow-rates

Features and Benefits

Based on the widely accepted modified F-2 Filter Performance Test(1), Profile II filters can be expected to yield longer service life, in many cases by factors of six or more, and higher flow rates when compared with existing products of similar physical appearance at equal efficiency.

The specific features include:

  • Excellent compatibility with a wide range of chemicals
  • Continuous operating temperatures up to 82 °C
  • Wide choice of particulate removal efficiencies from 0.3 µm to 120 µm absolute to optimize filter ratings for each application
  • No media migration — the fibers are continuous and fixed by intertwining during the manufacturing process
  • Very low extractables — no binders, lubricants or surfactants are used during manufacture
  • Choice of cartridge length to match flow rates
  • Choice of three cartridge styles — AB, RMF and RF style to suit different housing styles and applications

Note: These filters are also available in Kleenpak Nova capsule format.

Applications
Profile II polypropylene filters have a wide range of applications including filtration of fermentation broths, lysates, biological fluids, blood products, ophthalmics, organic solvents, pH adjusters, buffers, purified water, parenterals and many other fluids.

Other Profile II filters available:

Profile II Nylon Filters — for applications where polypropylene Profile II filters are chemically or physically incompatible, such as for the filtration of hot vegetable and mineral oils and aromatic solvents.

Profile II Plus Filters — these all-polypropylene filters have a positive charge to provide enhanced removal efficiency for small particles, bacteria and viruses.

Profile II Capsule Filters — disposable assemblies for ease of use.

Specifications

Operating Characteristics1

Operating Temperature Maximum Differential Pressure
 30 °C  4.0 bar (58 psi)
 50 °C  3.4 bar 49 psi)
 70 °C  2.0 bar (29 psi)
 82 °C  1.0 bar (15 psi)
1 In fully compatible liquids which do not soften, swell or attack the filter. AB Code 7 style elements can be heated to 125 °C, for example during in situ steam-sterilization or autoclaving and subsequent cooling to ambient temperatures prior to use. If RF or RMF style elements are heated in situ for any reason, and the filter is then used at a temperature lower by 20 °C or more, sealing of the element within the housing may be marginal.
