Description

Developed from traditional depth filtration technology, SUPRApak modules efficiently combine the filtration mechanisms of surface filtration, depth filtration and adsorption. Highly unique to their design is an entirely new flow configuration, based on the “edge flow” principle.

 

Seitz® filter sheet material is wrapped around a central, permeable core. Feed and filtrate channels provide a fluid flow path resulting in maximum utilization of the sheet material, to provide highly efficient contaminant removal and a cost-effective closed system alternative to flat sheet filtration.

 

Features Benefits
Flow configuration based on “edge flow” principle 
  • Up to 6 times higher throughput compared to classical sheet filtration, resulting in longer process uptimes¹
  • Increased adsorption capability and excellent filtrate quality

Closed filtration system

  • Increased process safety and product quality
  • No drip losses
  • Minimal operator exposure to process fluids

Drainable, low hold-up volume assembly

  • Higher product yield; lower cleaning costs

Available in multiple grades and sizes

  • Suitable for a variety of applications

High filtration capacity in compact design

  • Small footprint

Simple, quick installation and servicing

  • Reduced labor and maintenance costs

1Depending on application and product selection.

 

Quality

  • Filter sheets produced in a controlled environment
  • Manufactured according to ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System

Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids3

 
Module Size Grade Max. Operating Temperature
SUPRApak L SW 5200-SW 7300 75 °C (167 °F) / 8 hours4
SUPRApak L SW 7700 ambient

3Compatible fluids are those which do not adversely affect the filter materials of construction.

4Laboratory tests up to 8 hours exposure. Actual field experience shows substantially longer resistance to high temperatures. For continuous hot fluid applications over 40° C (104° F), a stainless steel support core is required. Please see SUPRApak housing data sheet for information.

 

Operating Guidelines

 

Field experience shows that maximum achievable differential pressures vary with the applications and product selection. They are determined by monitoring filtrate quality, and are influenced by several factors. Please contact Pall for details, and refer to SUPRApak module instructions for use.

6SW 7700 is not designed for sanitization with hot water.

7The actual time required may vary as a function of the process conditions. Laboratory tests were carried out up to 10 cycles. Actual field experience shows more cycles are achievable, coupled with proper filtrate quality monitoring.

 

Rinsing8

 

Module Size Rising Volume/Module Recommended Flow Rate
SUPRApak L 340 liters (90 US gal) 1.5 times filtration flow rate
8 Depending on the application, rinsing with cold or warm water in a forward flow direction is recommended prior to filtration.

 

SW 7700 Modules

 

Due to the high permeability of SUPRApak SW 7700 modules, initial clean water differential pressures at the typical flux rates used for these modules are negligibly low and influenced by measurement accuracy.
