Aerolith® S Filter Elements

Pall Aerolith S filter material is a further development of the well-known Pall® product Aerolith with improved properties. Composed of selected high quality ceramic raw materials, the alumosiliceous filter material Aerolith S is produced in a controlled production process as a cylinder, candle or tile. The special merits of Aerolith S filter elements are the higher mechanical stability as well as an improved pH resistance in the alkaline range. Due to the porous labyrinth structure with high particle storage capacity, Aerolith S filter elements are well suited for depth filtration applications up to temperatures of 700°C.

General Information

  • Porous Aerolith S ceramic is approved for the utilization in drinking water according to German regulations DVGW W270 and the KTW recommendation.
  • Aerolith S filter elements can be machined using hard metal tools.
  • Ceramic elements are to be handled with care.
  • Elements can be easily glued using commercial glues which Pall can supply. Consideration must be paid to operating temperature and chemical resistance.
  • Pall can supply a variety of element fixing systems.

Chemical Resistance3

Aerolith S filter elements are resistant against most acids, saline solutions and organic solvents, liquid or gaseous. It does not resist hydrofluoric acid. Aerolith S filter elements are resistant up to pH 10 in the alkaline range.
