SupaPore VP Biological Filters
SupaPore VPG, VPB and VPBA filters are ideally suited to meet the demands of the Pharmaceutical Industry. Specifically designed for microbiological sterilisation and bioburden control in larger scale production facilities. They feature our high flow, highly Asymmetric naturally hydrophilic PES (Polyethersulphone) membrane media with the VPBA featuring a built in pre-filter layer for enhanced throughout and for more challenging applications.
SupaPore VPG, VPB and VPBA cartridges use a high flow, highly Asymmetric hydrophillic PES membrane and the VPBA contains a built in pre-filter. The supporting pre-filter layer and membrane combination improves on steam life and dirt holding capacity making VPBAcartridge an ideal choice for the Pharmaceutical Industry where challenging or heavily loaded solutions are to be processed.
The SupaPore VPBA has proven successful in API or Pharmaceutical manufacturing, where contamination levels are known to be higher, or where a double layer membrane is required, or bioburden control is critical to successful filtration. The dual layer construction of the SupaPore VPBA improves wetting for integrity testing and reduces the risk of false failure. This additional membrane layer holds the water used to wet the filter against the final layer, therefore achieving more effective wetting.
The VPB Biological grade cartridge is ideal for final sterilising or bioburden reduction applications, the high flow capacity is achieved with extremely low differential pressure.
The VPG General grade cartridge is ideal for bioburden reduction or particulate control, the high flow capacity is achieved with extremely low differential pressure.
All cartridges are thermally bonded and adhesive free. Each unit is pre-flushed with ultra-pure water and integrity tested before final assembly.
