QPoint Tap Water Filter Assembly

Combining fixed Docking Station and exchangeable Filter Capsule for up to 2 months use

The QPoint Tap Water Filter Assembly with exchangeable Filter Capsule for up to 62 day (2 months) use provides 0.2 μm sterilizing-grade filtered water at the Point-of-Use. 

The high technology integrated prefiltration layer delivers exceptional particulate trapping capacity with good flow rates, and protects the proven double layer sterilizing grade membranes enabling long performance life. The Filter Capsule retains fungi, protozoa and bacteria such as Legionella spp., Pseudomonas spp., non-tuberculous Mycobacteria and Escherichia coli without volume restriction. A combination of the non-leaching bacteriostatic additive with >99% effectiveness and inner shield protection within the Filter Capsule minimizes the risk of retrograde contamination over the life of the product.

The smooth, chrome finish Docking Station is hygienically designed, and will fit to all standard tap water outlets. The combination of this fixed Docking Station with the disposable Filter Capsule is compact, reduces waste, reduces costs and improves logistics for the user.

Pall QPoint& Filter Capsule (QJ212U, QJ22U)

Pictorial Installation Guide

Description

The Pall QPoint Filter Capsules are:
  • Provided sterile.
  • Disposable and may be used for up to 62 days (2 months) following initial connection.
For full details refer to the Instructions For Use.
  • Ensure the QPoint Docking Station is clean and dry to avoid inadvertent contamination.
  • Ensure o'ring seal is visible, in position and intact.
  • The Filter Capsule should be handled aseptically.
  • Wash hands and/or wear sterile gloves prior to opening filter unit packaging.
  • Whilst holding Filter Capsule securely through the unit packaging, peel back lid.
  • The unit packaging can be used to protect the device from cross contamination during installation.
  • Align marker triangle on the top face of the Filter Capsule with the marker triangle in the centre of Docking Station front panel.
  • With the triangles aligned, turn the Filter Capsule upwards onto the Docking Station while rotating a 14 turn to the right.
  • If connecting to a Docking Station with Quick Connect Inlet, the Docking Station will need to be held to avoid rotation.
  • The Filter Capsule labelling details should be aligned beneath the Docking Station front panel.
  • Remove protective unit packaging prior to use.
  • The Filter Capsule can be used for up to 62 days (2 months).
  • Suspending use following initial connection does not extend filter life.

The Filter Capsule should not be
  • positioned directly into a drainage point.
  • immersed in collected water.
  • placed on the floor, in a basin or bath, or in contact with contaminated surfaces or cloths.
  • touched during use.
   

Disconnection

  • Lift release button on the Docking Station to disengage Filter Capsule, and turn Filter Capsule to remove.

Disposal

  • The used Filter Capsule should be disposed of according to local procedures. All materials are suitable for plastics recycling, as per local guidelines.

Systemic Chemical Disinfection

A wide variety of systemic chemical treatments are used to mitigate microbial contamination within potable water supplies to hospitals, hotels, leisure centres, schools, apartment blocks and other building complexes. Such chemical treatments may be used in conjunction with Pall Point of Use Water Filters as part of the engineering solution.

Testing has been performed to support compatibility of Pall QPoint Filter Capsules (QJ212U, QJ22U) with a range of common systemic chemical treatments, particularly shock treatments completed during periods of critical water system contamination.

Active chlorine at 100 parts per million (ppm)

Following exposure to active chlorine (100 ppm) for 1 hour at 22 °C (72 °F) all Filter Capsules passed. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Continuous treatment with active chlorine for up to 62 days (up to 7 ppm)

Following exposure to up to 7 ppm active chlorine for 62 days at 22°C (72 °F) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Shock treatment with pH > 12

Following exposure to pH>12 for 1 hour at 22 °C (72 °F) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Shock treatment with peracetic acid (1000 ppm)

Following exposure to 1000 ppm peracetic acid for 2 hours at 60 °C (140 °F) all Filter Capsules passed integrity test. No visual abnormalities were observed.

Conclusion

Pall QPoint Filter Capsules maintain their filter integrity and are compatible with shock treatment of 100 ppm active chlorine for 1 hour, continuous active chlorine treatment of up to 7 ppm for 62 days, pH>12 for one hour or 1000 ppm peracetic acid for 2 hours.

Surface Disinfection

  • QPoint Filter Capsules (QJ212U, QJ22U) incorporate an effective bacteriostatic compound to minimise the risk of inadvertent retrograde microbial contamination. However any contamination will depend on local environmental and hygiene conditions. If a filter is visibly, or known to have been contaminated, it should be replaced.
  • QPoint Filter Capsules should not come into contact with contaminated surfaces or cloths.
  • If there is a local Standard Operating Procedure in place for Filter Capsule cleansing and hygiene, which includes a new or sterile wipe/cloth for each filter outlet, then the external surfaces of the Filter Capsule (QJ212U, QJ22U) may be cleansed with the following common sanitising solutions containing Iso-Propyl Alcohol, Quaternary Ammonium Compounds, Benzyl Ammonium Compounds, Iodides and non-ionic surfactants. The following solution compositions (qualitative compositions) have been tested:
    • Solution A: n-propanol (29%), propionic quaternary ammoniums, polhexanide.
    • Solution B: glycolic acid, propionic quaternary ammoniums, n-propanol, non-ionic surfactants, fragrance, colour.
    • Solution C: propionic quaternary ammoniums, guanidium acetate, n-propanol, non-ionic surfactants, excipients.
    • Solution D: alkyl (60% C14, 30% C16, 5% C12, 5% C18) dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (2.25%), alkyl (68% C12, 32% C14) dimethylethylbenzyl ammonium chloride (2.25%), inert ingredients (95.5%).
    • Solution E: di-isobutylphenoxyethoxyethyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride (0.28%), isopropanol (17.2%), inert ingredients (82.52%).
    • Solution F: povidone iodine (4%), excipients.
    • Solution G: n,n-didecyl-n-methyl-poly(oxyethyl) ammonium propionate (2.5-10%), sodium n-lauryl b-iminodipropionate (2.5-10%), ethoxylated isotridecanol (2.5-10%), monopropylene glycol (10-25%), ethane-1,2-diol,homopolymere (0-2.5%), polyhexamethylene biguanide hydrochloride (0-2.5%).
  • Periodic wiping or spraying of the housing / outlet with the solutions listed above does not adversely affect the polyester (polybutylterepthalate) housing material of the QPoint Filter Capsules. At no point should the Filter Capsule be disconnected during cleansing.
