Filter Housing and Equipment

As the biopharmaceutical industry filter products evolves and matures, so do the materials and designs of filter housing and peripheral equipment. Sanitary filter housing has tranditionally been built of 316L or 304L stainless steel, typical application areas for stainless steel housings include bioreactors, autoclaves, freeze dryers and process tanks. The stainless steel filter holders can be sterilised by autoclaving or inline steaming and are available in DIN, ISO or Japanese Industrial Standard, electro polished or grinded (Ra 0.4 µm) in high 316 L quality. Now the use of a wide range of disposable polymeric housings is replacing the traditional stainless steel systes, they are now available in larger sizes, with configurations scalable (e.g., from capsules ot encapsulated cartridge assemblies) to meet biopharmaceutical batch production needs in a wide array of manufacturing applications.
