Supor® Beverage Filter Cartridges

Supor Beverage filter cartridges are hydrophilic membrane filters designed for reliable retention of spoilage microorganisms in the final filtration of wine.

Description

The Supor Beverage filter was developed and validated for removal of spoilage microorganisms.
The cartridge is constructed from one layer of 0.45 micron 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.

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.

Technical Information

Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids1

 
Maximum Differential Pressure (ΔP) Operating Temperature
5.5 bard (79.8 psid) (forward pressure) 25 °C (77 °F)
4.0 bard (58.0 psid) (forward pressure) 80 °C (176 °F)
1.0 bard (14.5 psid) (reverse pressure) 40 °C (104 °F)
300 mbard (4.4 psid) (forward pressure) during in-situ steam sterilization
 
1Compatible fluids are defined as those which do not swell, soften or attack any of the filter components.

Sterilization and Sanitization

 
Media Temperature Cumulative Exposure Time/Cycles2
Steam 125 °C (257 °F) 125 20-minute cycles
Hot water 90 °C (194 °F) 100 hours / 200 30-minute cycles
Peracetic acid* (PAA) (325 ppm) Ambient 1000 hours
Potassium metabisulphite (1110 ppm) Ambient 1000 hours
 
2Measured 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.
*Product containing 325 ppm PAA and 1275 ppm H2O2 to give 1600 ppm of total peroxides

Chemical Cleaning (static soak conditions)

 
Media Tempreture Cumulative Exposure

NOTE:Measured under laboratory test conditions. The actual cumulative time depends on the process conditions.

Pressure Drop vs. Liquid Flow Rate

30 liters per minute @ 100 mbar 5.4 US gpm @ 1 psi Typical initial clean media differential pressure (ΔP) per 250 mm (10”) cartridge for water at 20 °C (68 °F); viscosity 1 centipoise. For 508, 762 mm and 1016 mm configurations divide the differential pressure by 2, 3, and 4 respectively.
