ProfileĀ® Star TF Filters

Pleated Depth Filter Designed Specifically
for Particle Trap Filtration in Beer

This Pall Profile Star TF filter has been designed specifically for use as a particle trap filter to remove filter aid particles from bright beer. The filter utilizes the proven and successful Pall technique of varying the fiber diameter to produce a pore size gradient from coarse (upstream) to fine (downstream), while maintaining a high open area throughout the depth of the filter medium.

This proprietary construction has been optimized to deliver the benefits of both traditional pleated and depth style trap filters - the ideal combination.

Features and Benefits

  • Construction optimized for consistent performance under variation in flow or ΔP increase 
  • Filter medium designed to prevent fiber migration into the filtered beer
  • Very high contaminant holding capacity
  • Designed for reverse flow cleaning to optimize filter service life
  • All polypropylene construction 
  • No surfactants or binder resins used in manufacture
  • Consistent and verifiable filtration performance
  • Long service life, low filtration costs
  • High flow rates
  • Excellent resistance to typical brewery use chemicals
  • Continuous construction without side seam for durability and security of use
  • Extra security provided by bayonette lock and double o-ring seal
  • All materials meet the requirements for biological safety tests per USP for class VI
    plastic at 121 ºC

Liquid Flow vs. Differential Pressure


Note: Differential pressures are for liquids with a viscosity of 1 centipoise (cP). For cartridges of 508 mm, 762 mm, 1016 mm nominal length, divide the differential pressure by 2, 3 and 4 respectively. To obtain the total pressure drop of a complete filter assembly the housing pressure drop must be added. Please refer to the relevant housing literature or contact Pall. 

Recommended flow rate for sizing 12 hl/hr per 10 in. module

Further details on test methods and operating conditions are available from Pall.
