Strainrite’s Sterilizing Grade Pleated Cartridges are engineered to meet the highest standards of microorganism control for sterile fluids. These filter elements are validated for complete removal of Brevundimonas diminuta (ATCC 19146) at test concentrations of 107 CFU/cm2 (Colony Forming Units).
This product is ideally suited for applications where microorganism contamination causes product defects or extra processing time due to increase fluid instability. These cartridges are produced utilizing a unique multi-pleated configuration integrating highly asymmetric and hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane with exceptional pleat support materials. This novel multi-pleated approach increases cartridge life, strength, and durability, and allows our filter cartridges to withstand multiple sterilization cycles without sacrificing product integrity.
These cartridges comply with FDA CFR Title 21 and USP Biological Reactivity for Class VI Plastics. By combining these ultra pure components with the low protein binding features of highly asymmetric hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane makes them perfect for applications in the biopharmaceutical and bottled water industries.
