Applications And Benefits Of Polyethylene Membrane Filters A Q&A With Kenneth J Renfrew, MS., MBA, VP, ZenPure America's Inc.
For sterile air and gas filtration, hydrophobic PVDF membrane was the pharmaceutical engineers' historical filter membrane of choice. Then PTFE became a reliable option offering higher flow rates and greater voids volume within the matrix of the membrane. PTFE also had higher temperature tolerance, meaning it worked great for hot air filtered in huge volumes into large fermenters used to produce antibiotics like erythromycin.
