Microclar capsules are ideal to meet all your production processes needs when filtering small volumes of liquids or for air and gas venting.

 

Microflow-B-PES – MFBG020

Characteristics

They allow obtaining high­purity liquids in small volumes in bio­pharmaceutical (B) applications.

The capsule design maximizes efficiency allowing for an easy and fast interchange without any time-consuming cleaning processes.
All components comply with -XXIV USP Class VI - 121°C standard and are thermally sealed to guarantee integrity and reduction of extractables.

Microflow-T-ABR (Aerosol Bacterial Retentive)

Characteristics

These capsules displayed one of the most intense air flows available among sterilizing grade filters of similar dimensions. Their excellent air flow rates allow for effective venting results. The new venting valves design eliminates the risk of damage under pressure.  

The capsule design maximizes efficiency allowing for an easy and fast interchange without any time-consuming cleaning processes.
All components comply with XXIV USP Class VI - 121°C standard and are thermally sealed to guarantee integrity and reduction of extractables.
    • Retention Pore: 0,2 µm
    • Filter Area:
    • Small Capsule: 1022 cm2
    • Medium Capsule: 2044 cm2
    • Construction Materials:
    • Membrane: PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)
    • Support Sheets: Polypropylene
    • Structure: Polypropylene
    • Capsuling: Polypropylene
  • Maximum operating differential pressure in filtration direction:
    •  4.8 bar (70 psid) at 24°C
    • 2.4 bar (35 psid) at 60°C
    • 1.4 bar (20 psid) at 75°C
  • Maximum operating differential pressure in reverse filtration direction (opposite to filtration way):
    • 2.1 bar (30 psid) at 24°C
  • Sterilization
    • The capsules can be autoclaved up to 50 times to 135ºC or sanitized in situ using authorized chemical agents.
