These figures have been determined in accordance with in-house test methods and the methods of the Technical / Analytical Work Group within the European Depth Filtration Association.

 

2The permeability was measured under test conditions with clean water at 20 °C (68 °F) and a Δp of 1 bar (14.5 psi).

 

Regeneration

Seitz K series filter sheets may be rinsed with clean water (in the forward or reverse direction3) to increase throughput and optimize economic efficiency. Optimal regeneration of filter sheets installed in a plate and frame filter may be achieved with serial rinses of warm water followed by hot water. An example protocol is shown below.

 

  1. Rinse with warm water 60 °C (140 °F) for 15 minutes
  2. Rinse with hot water 70 – 80 °C (158 – 176 °F) for 8 – 10 minutes

 

The rinse flow rate should be equivalent to the filtration flow rate with a back pressure of 0.5 –1 bar (7.2 –14.5 psi).

 

3When rinsing in the reverse flow direction, it is critical to control particulate and microbial levels in the rinse water so that the sheet's filtrate side is not contaminated. Water used for reverse flow flushes should be particle-free, and if the filter will not be sterilized prior to re-use the water should be free of microbes. Backwashing should be in a diagonal direction from outlet to inlet in a plate and frame filter.

Filtration Guidelines5

For achieving optimal filtrate quality, the following flow velocities and differential pressures should not be exceeded:
