Fluorodyne® VA and Fluorodyne® TF Filters

Fluorodyne VA filters and Fluorodyne TF filters are specifically designed to provide rapid bath clean up in recirculating nickel plating baths. They are also ideally suited for use in recirculated cleaning baths of DI water and alkaline soaps.

Rated at 0.2 µm and 0.1 µm, Fluorodyne VA and TF filters offer spontaneous wettability, fast bath turnover rates and excellent bath clean up characteristics.

Features and Benefits

  • Spontaneously wets in Ni plating and DI water/alkaline soap mixtures
  • Very high flow rates
  • Low differential pressure
  • Low extractables
  • Manufactured in a cleanroom environment
