HydroFlow HP

Cartridges-Modified Polyethersulfone Filters

 

HydroFlow HP cartridge is a precision filter specifically constructed to provide high flow rate and retention. The filter medium is Accupor membrane, i.e., modified polyethersulfone hydrophilic membrane developed by AF for rigorous operating conditions in many filtration applications.

 

HydroFlow HP cartridge is designed for final filtration when absolute retention is required, or prefiltration where highly fine particle removal is desired to protect the final filter.

Each cartridge is flushed with appropriate solvents to provide optimum cleanliness, and integrity tested to verify compliance with established pore size specifications.

 

HydroFlow HP cartridge is compatible with autoclave and in-line stream sterilization, as well as chemical sanitization methods that makes it an ideal microporous membrane cartridge for various applications.

Performance Advantages

  • Constructed of only two materials, i.e., modified polyethersulfone and polypropylene with no adhesives to ensure lower extractables
  • All components meet USP Class VI-121°C Plastics Tests for biosafety, and are listed as being acceptable for food contact applications according to the Code of Federal Regulation, Title 21
  • Provides high flow rate and particle retention
  • Available in a variety of configurations allowing easy installation in common-used filtration system
  • 100% integrity tested during manufacturing to assure product reliability and quality
