SUPRApak™ Plus PR Series Modules
For High Throughput Depth Filtration in Enclosed Systems
SUPRApak Plus PR depth filter module design is using the new layer to layer seal technology.
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:
|Flow configuration based on “edge flow” principle||
Sealing line technology
Enclosed filtration system
|Drainable, low hold-up volume assembly||
|High filtration capacity in compact design||
|Simple, quick installation and servicing||
- 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 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.
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.
Nominal Weight and Typical Ash Content
|Module||Dry Weight||Wet Weight||Ash Content5|
|SUPRApak PR 5100 L||
|SUPRApak PR 5100 M||
|SUPRApak PR 5100 S||
5 These figures are determined on typical finished articles. Values differ for individual PR grades. Ash values for the filter sheets in individual batches are available on request.
|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.
|SUPRApak L||340 liters (90 US gal)||1.5 times filtration flow rate|
|SUPRApak M||140 liters (37 US gal)||1.5 times filtration flow rate|
|SUPRApak S||20 liters (5.3 US gal)||1.5 times filtration flow rate|
7 Depending on the application, rinsing with cold or warm water in a forward flow direction is recommended prior to filtration.
