From the selection and quality control of raw materials to application of the latest production technologies, HR filter sheets meet the highest quality standards.
Due to a surface modification and the presence of polyolefin fibers, these sheets are suited for the filtration of cellulosedegrading enzyme solutions. The resulting structural properties lead to improved sealing and reduced edge losses.

|Grade||Mass per Unit Area g/m2||Thickness mm||Ash %||Water Permeability2 L/m2/min (gal/ft2/min)|
|HR 100||1360||3.9||46||51 (1.2)|
|HR 2000||1220||3.9||45||350 (8.6)|
|HR 9000||1200||4.8||45||1550 (38.1)|
These figures have been determined in accordance with in-house test methods and the methods of the Technical / Analytical Work Group within the European Depth Filtration Association.
2The permeability was measured under test conditions with clean water at 20 °C (68 °F) and a Δp of 1 bar (14.5 psi).
Cellulase ResistanceSeitz HR and standard Seitz K series filter sheets were tested for their resistance to cellulase under controlled laboratory conditions. After immersion, the burst force of the samples was measured.
HR sheets exhibit high wet strength when exposed to cellulase enzymes.
Sterilization and Sanitization

Filtration Guidelines4As the filtrate quality can be impacted by the filtration flow rate, the following table provides guidelines for flux rate.
|Application||Flow Velocity L/m2/h (gal/ft2/h)||Maximum Differential Pressure bar (psi)|
|Bacteria load reduction from cellulase enzymes||525 (12.9)||1.5 (21.8)|
|Cellulase enzyme fine filtration||525 (12.9)||3 (43.5)|
|Clarification of cellulase enzymes||850 (20.9)||3 (43.5)|
|Coarse filtration of cellulase enzymes||850 (20.9)||3 (43.5)|
