Pall Advanta™ ALT4 Multi-round Housings

Pall Advanta filter housings have been specifically designed and engineered for today’s manufacturing processes. These advanced housings are manufactured from 316L stainless steel and are engineered to meet the requirements of the BioPharmaceutical industry. State-of-the-art manufacturing technologies are used to construct a housing ideal for the most critical of applications.

This multi-round version of the Pall Advanta housing range is designed to allow up to four filter elements in parallel arrangement.

During the design process, critical features were optimized to ensure trouble-free use and low installation and maintenance costs. Areas included in this process were:
  • Surface finish
  • Suitability for CIP and SIP
  • Integrity testing
  • Incorporation into automated production processes

Features

  • Aseptic design
    • Crevice-free electropolished surface with an internal Ra value of  < 0.4 µm (< 15 µin.)
    • Fully self draining
    • No dead legs
  • Low hold-up volumes for maximum product recovery
  • Quick fit Stäubli-type* connections for easy filter integrity testing
  • Easy to use low-point sanitary drain valve
  • Range of options to aid use in automated production systems
  • Options available for use with CIP spray cleaning device
  • Every housing supplied with a quality certificate and manufactured to ATEX Directive 94/9/EC (Group ll Category 2)
  • Design variants to ASME and European Pressure Equipment Directive, CE marking available

3The flow and pressure drop characteristics refer to the empty housing only for water at 20 °C (68 °F). For other liquids multiply pressure drop by relative density. To obtain the total pressure drop of a complete filter assembly, the cartridge pressure drop must be added. Please refer to the relevant filter cartridge literature or contact Pall.
