Fluorodyne II filter cartridges are hydrophilic membrane filters designed for reliable retention of bacteria in the final filtration of bottled water.
The Fluorodyne II JSD filter was developed and validated to provide enhanced, secure and reliable removal of microorganisms from bottled water. The cartridge is constructed from serial layers of 0.2 and
The Fluorodyne II JSD filter is suitable for exposure to 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.
- Hydrophilic, easy to wet and integrity test
- Fixed pores, non-shedding, resin and surfactant free
- Multiple adapter options for installation into sanitary housings
- Repeated sanitization/sterilization capability for economical operation
- Individually serialized for full traceability
- Cartridges produced in a controlled environment
- Manufactured according to ISO 9001:2000 certified Quality Management System
Microbial Removal Rating
Fluorodyne II JSD filter cartridges, passing an appropriate integrity test, provide a sterile effluent when challenged with Brevundimonas diminuta at ≥1 x 107 CFU per cm2 of effective filtration area.
Fluorodyne II filter cartridges passing the appropriate Forward Flow integrity test have also been shown in laboratory tests to give titre reductions of typically 108 when challenged with Acholeplasma laidlawii ATCC28206 at a challenge level of 107 per cm2 filter area.
