3M Purification Inc. Introduces LifeASSURE PDA Gamma Compatible And Sterile Capsule Filters
New gamma compatible and sterile filter capsules complement the LifeASSURE PDA product portfolio
3M Purification Inc. has expanded its portfolio of the LifeASSURE PDA Series of sterilizing grade polyethersulfone (PES) membrane filters. The two new product lines – gamma compatible and sterile capsule filters – incorporate two layers of asymmetric polyethersulfone membrane that provides extremely high contaminant capacity, fast flow rates and reliable sterilizing grade filtration performance.
LifeASSURE PDA series filters combine two asymmetric polyethersulfone (PES) membrane layers with Advanced Pleat Technology design. This combination results in a robust filter that is optimized for both high throughput and fast flow applications while offering 0.2 µm absolute rated filtration for sterilizing performance. The unique hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane wets easily for integrity testing and is ideal for applications where low protein binding is critical.
LifeASSURE PDA Series Gamma compatible capsules filters are compatible with autoclaving or gamma irradiation up to 45 kGy. LifeASSURE PDA Series Sterile capsule filters are ready for use without further sterilization. These single-use capsule filters are available in 2.5”, 5”, 10”, 20” and 30” height and are supplied with sanitary vent and drain ports as well as 1.5” sanitary flange connections. The 2.5” and 5” mini-capsules are available with a choice of 0.5” (13mm) hose barb inlet/outlet connections or 1.5” sanitary flange connections. The capsule filter eliminate the steps associated with assembling, cleaning and validating stainless steel housings, thus providing maximal ease-of-use and significant cost saving.
