Sanitary filter housings
Sartorius Corp. has developed two new product lines of corrosion-resistant filter housings for sterile filtration of bulk gases, fermentor off-gases, tank venting, pharmaceutical preparations and high purity water processing applications. U- and M-series filter housings have a contact surface finish of less than 25-µin. Ra and 15-µin. Ra, respectively. The filter housings are also used by bioprocessing equipment providers, including makers of bioreactors, CIP skids, autoclaves, lyophilizers and process tanks. Strategically positioned vent and drain valves allow easy fill and drain, and the flush closure design eliminates debris blockage. The design is fully compatible with industry-standard cartridge configurations.
