SUPRApak™ Plus PW Series Modules

For High Throughput Depth Filtration in Enclosed Systems

SUPRApak Plus PW 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 PW 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


1 Depending on application and product selection


Typical applications are found in many fluids in the food and beverage industry.


Final filtration Enzyme solutions, sweeteners
Polishing filtration Sweeteners, beer, wine, flavors, thin liquor gelatin, yeast extract, vinegar
Clarifying filtration Beer, wine, enzymes, flavors, thin liquor gelatin, polyols, edible oils
Coarse filtration General particle removal

Technical Information


Operating Characteristics in Compatible Fluids3

Module Size Grade Max. Operating Temperature
SUPRApak S,M,L PW 5200-PW 7700 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.

Many applications in the food and beverage industry are ideally suited to the use of SUPRApak technology, resulting in significant commercial and technical advantages.


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


6The 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.




Module Size Rising Volume/Module Recommended Flow Rate
SUPRApak S 20 liters (5.3 US gal) 1.5 times filtration flow rate
SUPRApak M 140 liters (37 US gal) 1.5 times filtration flow rate
SUPRApak L 340 liters (90 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.
