Technical Information

The technical information provided is based on controlled laboratory tests done on typical production filters at the conditions described, unless otherwise indicated. Actual operating conditions may affect the filter's performance.

Performance

Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids1

 
Maximum Differential Pressure Operating Temperature
5.0 bard (72.5 psid) (forward) 25 °C (77 °F)
2.0 bard (29 psid) (forward) 80 °C (176 °F)
1.5 bard (21.8 psid) (forward) 90 °C (194 °F)
1 bard (14.5 psid) (reverse) 60 °C (140 °F)

Typical Flow Rates2


2
Typical initial clean delta p per 254 mm (10 inch) cartridge, water at 20 °C (68 °F). For liquids with viscosity greater than 1 cP, multiply the delta p by the viscosity

Sterilization and Sanitization3

 
Method Maximum Temperature Maximum Number of Cycles4
Steam Sterilization (forward) 134 °C (273 °F) 25 x 30 minutes
Hot Water Sanitization (forward) 90 °C (194 °F) 50 x 30 minutes4
 

3
For applications requiring in situ 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.
4
Extensive field experience indicates these filters show excellent resistance to hot water sanitization, typically 50 30-minute cycles at temperatures of 80-90 ºC (176-194 ºF).

Backflushing

Extensive field experience indicates that these filters withstand over 50 20-minute hot water backflushing cycles at up to 60 °C (140 °F) and maximum 1 bar (14.5 psid). The cleaning effectiveness is a function of several parameters. The use of DOE filters is not recommended.
