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 “edgeflow” 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 enclosed system alternative to flat sheet filtration. New to the SUPRApak PR Series is an improved layer to layer sealing which offers the following features and benefits:


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

Sealing line technology

  • Higher mechanical stability
  • Modules can be steam sanitized
  • Higher dp stability and therefore higher total throughput

Enclosed 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
High filtration capacity in compact design
  • Small footprint
Simple, quick installation and servicing
  • Reduced labor and maintenance costs

Technical Information


Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids3

Module Size Grade Max. Operating Temperature
SUPRApak S,M,L PR 5100 80 °C (167 °F) / 8 hours4

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

4 Laboratory 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.

Method Temperature Time/Cycles6
Hot Water 85 °C (185 °F) 20 cycles @ 20 min each
Steam 125 °C (258 °F) 10 cycles @ 20 min each

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