PAREQII Filter Cartridge, AB1PAREQII7WH4
For "Sterile" Filtration of Beer
Pasteurizer Replacement filter cartridges are a family of pre-filters and hydrophilic membrane filters desig ned for reliable retention of spoilage microorganisms in the filtration of beer in the CFS NEO system or standard housings.
The Pasteurizer Replacement filter cartridge family was developed and validated for removal of beer spoilage microorganisms in the CFS NEO system or standard housings.
There are 6 family members providing reduction in microbial spoilage organisms from beer. Four of the beer membrane filter of the cartridges are constructed from microbial removal membranes with a correlated integrity test value. Two of the cartridges are pre-filters designed not only to protect the selected downstream beer membrane filter but also aid in the removal of beer spoilage organisms. The single open ended (SOE) configuration is designed to fit into the sanitary housings on the CFS NEO system to ensure effective microbial reduction and assembly integrity.
Pasteurizer Replacement filter cartridges are suitable for exposure to repeated hot water sanitization and in situ steam sterilization cycles for longer service life in the CFS NEO system. The optimized support and drainage materials, provide increased mechanical strength during operation, repeated hot water, chemical and steam sanitization and thus, high throughput.

|Media||Temperature||Cumulative Exposure Time*/ cycles|
|Steam||125 °C (257 °F)||125 x 20 min cycles|
|Hot Water||90 °C (194 °F)||200 x 30 min cycles|
*Measured under laboratory test conditions. The actual cumulative time depends on the process conditions. For applications requiring sterilization or sanitization Pall recommends the use of Code 7 adaptors to ensure filter sealing after cooling. Cartridges should be cooled to system operating temperature prior to use. Contact Pall for recommended procedures.
