UltiporĀ® GF Plus Filters - AB Cartridge Style

For Particle Removal

Ultipor GF Plus filter cartridges are made with positive Zeta modified glass fiber media for enhanced filtration efficiency for fluids in the food and beverage industry.

In addition to a high particulate removal efficiency and low pressure drop, the positive charge enables the Ultipor GF Plus filter to effectively remove submicron haze particles from a wide variety of aqueous and slightly alcoholic food and beverage products. The single open ended (SOE) configuration is designed to fit into sanitary housings.

Ultipor GF Plus filter cartridges are suitable for exposure to repeated hot water and in situ steam sanitization cycles for longer service life.

Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids11

 
Maximum Differential Pressure Operating Temperature
5.5 bard (80 psid) (forward pressure) 50 °C (122 °F)
4.1 bard (60 psid) (forward pressure) 80 °C (176 °F)
300 mbard (4.4 psid) (reverse pressure) In normal operation or in-situ steam sterilization
 

Sterilization and Sanitization

 
Media Temperature Cumulative Time/30 minute Cycles2
Steam 125 °C (257 °F) 25 hours / 50 cycles
Hot Water 85 °C (185 °F) 25 hours / 50 cycles
 

11 Compatible fluids are defined as those which do not swell, soften or attack any of the filter components.
2Measured 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.
