Acro 50 Vent Filter with Emflon II Membrane
Integrity Test Kit
Ideal for Use in Air/Gas and Vent Applications with Proprietary, Low Pressure Drop Hydrophobic PVDF Membrane
- Emflon II membrane filters have a removal rating of 0.2 μm in liquid service and less than 0.02 μm particulate for air/gas applications.
- Connects easily to hoses of various sizes in-line or as a final filter.
- Light weight (< 27 grams) prevents crimping of tubing.
- Stable with gamma irradiation.
- Excellent for disposable systems. Eliminates
- Venting of bioreactors, fermentation tanks, and carboys
- Gas purging of culture vessels
- Ideal for attachment to disposable systems that need to undergo gamma irradiation
