The Fluorodyne II filter was developed and validated to provide a secure and reliable removal of microorganisms.
The cartridge is constructed from two layers of
Fluorodyne II filter cartridges are suitable for exposure to repeated hot water and in situ steam sanitization cycles for longer service life.
This filter is integrity testable. An in-situ and non-destructive integrity test can provide assurance of filter performance within minutes. Integrity tests help manufacturers avoid costly issues such as product contamination, product losses, reprocessing and production delays, as well as satisfying auditor requirements.

Sterilization and Sanitization
|Steam||140 °C (284 °F)||10 hours /30 x 20 minute cycles|
|Steam||125 °C (257 °F)||30 hours / 90 x 20 minute cycles|
|Hot water||85 °C (185 °F)||100 hours / 200 x 30 minute cycles|
2 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.
Pressure Drop vs. Liquid Flow Rate35.5 liters per minute @ 100 mbar (~1 US gpm @ 1 psi)
3Typical initial clean media differential pressure (ΔP) per 250 mm (10”) cartridge for water at 20 °C (68 °F); viscosity 1 centipoise. For 508, 762 mm and 1016 mm configurations divide the differential pressure by 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
