Seitz® T Series Depth Filter Sheets

For General Industrial Filtration Applications

Seitz T series depth filter sheets were developed for coarse and clarifying filtration of many fluids in the food and beverage industry.

The "T" stands for technical because these filter sheets are designed for general industrial filtration duties. T 120 through T 950 are specifically designed for clarifying filtration. With their positive ZETA potential, these depth filters contain a high adsorption capacity. T 1000 through T 5500 have no ZETA potential. This range of the T series is characterized by its open structure and is well suited for filtration of high suspended solids and viscous applications.

From the selection and quality control of raw materials to application of the latest production technologies, the T series filter sheets meet the highest quality standards.

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).

Regeneration

T series filter sheets may be rinsed with clean water (in the forward or reverse3 direction) to increase throughput and to optimize economic efficiency. Optimal regeneration of filter sheets installed in a plate and frame filter may be achieved with serial rinses of warm water followed by hot water. An example protocol is shown below.
  1. Rinse with warm water (60 °C / 140 °F) for 15 minutes
  2. Rinse with hot water (70 – 80 °C / 158 – 176 °F) for 8 – 10 minutes
The rinse flow rate should be equivalent to the filtration flow rate with a back pressure of 0.5 –1 bar (7.2 –14.5 psi).
