Supor® Beverage Filter Cartridges

Supor® Beverage Filter Cartridges

For Final Filtration

Supor Beverage filter cartridges are hydrophilic membrane filters designed for reliable retention of spoilage microorganisms in the final filtration of a range of beverages including wine and water.


Description

The Supor Beverage filters were developed and validated for removal of common spoilage microorganisms. These filters come in two filter grades to best suit application needs.

The cartridges are constructed from one layer of polyethersulfone (PES) membrane in a laid-over pleat configuration. The single open ended (SOE) configuration is designed to fit into sanitary housings to ensure effective microbial reduction and assembly integrity.

Supor Beverage filter cartridges are suitable for exposure to repeated hot water sanitization and in situ steam sterilization cycles for longer service life. The laid-over pleat configuration combined with optimized support and drainage materials, provide increased mechanical strength during operation, repeated hot water, chemical and steam sanitization and thus, high throughput.

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
