The PureFlo® SKV Series PES filter capsule with all-polyethylene (PE) construction provides excellent chemical compatibility and superior flow per unit area as compared to other membrane capsules. These PureFlo® PES filter capsules with Polyethylene construction have been specially designed to be gamma sterilized for biopharmaceutical applications. The PES and the PE construction are naturally Gamma radiation staple. The hydrophilic PES membrane does not require pre-wetting agents, thereby eliminating a potential source of contamination. The PES membrane is a low protein-binding media.
The capsules were designed with built-in bleed valves for simple and efficient evacuation of air and liquid. The units are used for filtration of small to medium volumes used in production, laboratory and pilot runs. No adhesives, binders, or surfactants are used in the manufacturing process of these capsules. They are rinsed with pyrogen-free water to reduce extractables and downtime. All filter capsules are 100% integrity-tested to ensure filter performance each and every time out of the package. PureFlo SKV Series PES filter capsules are well-suited for pharmaceutical applications where gamma sterilization is needed.
The capsules Conforms to CFR part 177 of the US Code of Federal Regulations and USP Class VI Biological test for plastics.
