SupaPore TLB filters: high resistance to aggressive fluids

Amazon has just launched SupaPore TLB filters. What are they?

SupaPore TLB filters are manufactured using a PTFE membrane and Halar ECTFE hardware and support layers. This provides a cartridge that shows significant resistance to chemical attack at an attractive cost.

Where can they be used?

Due to excellent compatibility with a wide range of chemicals these filters are ideal for the filtration of solvents and chemicals and for manufacturing operations where solvents or chemicals are a significant element in the composition of the product or in the production process.

  • All materials of construction meet the FDA requirements in accordance with CFR 21
  • Passes Biological Safety Tests for Plastics as specified in the United States Pharmacopoeia (Class VI Plastics (121°C) Testing)
  • Non-cytotoxic as per MEM Elution Test, ISO 10993-5
  • Extremely low levels of extractables – < 6mg/10” filter
  • Meets US and EU BSE/TSE compliance standards
  • Supported by integrity test data so are ideal for the most critical applications

SupaPore TLB All-fluoropolymer Microfiltration Cartridges have been specifically designed for use in corrosive gas and liquid processing applications. A naturally highly hydrophobic PTFE membrane and Halar ECTFE structure makes this the cartridge of choice where high resistance to aggressive fluids is required.

Product Features

  • A naturally hydrophobic PTFE membrane
  • Halar ECTFE hardware
  • Extremely low extractable levels so ideal for high purity applications
  • Excellent chemical compatibility
  • Materials meet the requirements of 21CFR Part 174-190 and current USP Plastics Class VI – 121C Testing
  • Fully integrity testable by Water Intrusion Test
  • Operational temperature up to 80C
  • Suitable for sanitisation by all common sanitising agent

All cartridges are thermally bonded and adhesive free. Each unit is integrity tested before final assembly. They are available in a range of absolute pore sizes:

  • 0.05μm
  • 0.10μm
  • 0.20μm
  • 0.45μm
  • 1.0μm
