K-Series Depth Filter Sheets

In the chemical industry it is necessary to filter out residues from raw, intermediate or finished products. Lacquers, colors, synthetic resins, pesticides, polymers, waxes as well as technical oils offer a broad spectrum for the effective employment of a Pall depth filter. With 13 different retention rates, the K series represents the standard depth filter sheet series from Pall, formerly SeitzSchenk.

The EKS, the EK 1 and the EK are used for fine particles. Grades KS50 through to K 900 cover the entire range from fine filtration through clarifying filtration to coarse filtration.

The depth filters conform to the Recommendation XXXVI/1 BgW (German Federal Institute for Health Protection of Consumers and Veterinary Medicine) and meet the requirements of the Lebensmittel-und Bedarfsgegenständegesetz - LMBG - (Foodstuff and other Commodities Act), in particular §§ 5, 30 and 31; they can be used for cold filtration of foodstuff without any reservation.

Specifications

Material Components

Due to their material composition and their structural design Pall/SeitzSchenk depth filters can basically be compared with a maze-like, extremely fine three-dimensional sieve with innumerous, branched micro "channels."

The main components are cellulose, diatomaceous earth and/or perlite and synthetic polymers. The cellulose generates the matrix of the depth filter. The diatomaceous earth and/or perlite are responsible for the clarifying effect. The synthetic polymers build up the wet strength and the positive ZETA potential.

Characterization

The tests are carried out according to the methods of the Technical/Analytical Work Group within the European Depth Filtration Association or in accordance with in-house test methods.
