FiberFlo Capsule Filters for Bacteria, Particle and Pyrogen Removal

FiberFlo Capsule Filters for Bacteria, Particle and Pyrogen Removal

Pyrogens are a chemically heterogeneous group of fever-inducing compounds They can be divided into two distinct categories: endotoxin pyrogens (LPS) and non-endotoxin pyrogens (NEP). Contamination by pyrogens can result in symptoms ranging from slight fever to shock and death.

Hollow Fiber Capsule Filters

Absolute Performance in Filtration Technology

The unique membrane structure of FiberFlo HF cartridge filters provides consistent and verifiable pyrogen removal that surpasses traditional, absolute-rated membrane filters. High level endotoxin, bacteria, and spore removal make these filters ideal for a variety of water purification or process fluid applications.

Mar Cor Purification’s unique polysulfone (PS) hydrophilic hollow fiber membrane technology is available in FiberFlo brand filtration and separation devices. Available in either cartridge or capsule form, the filter devices provide absolute fluid purity and validated endotoxin/pyrogen removal* in devices with up to three times the filter area as similar traditional pleated filters.

This advantage streamlines processes and saves on both capital and operating expenses. The unique hollow fiber membrane is made using advanced quality control techniques which produce a remarkably consistent product passing biocompatibility and performance criteria required for registration as a medical device under U.S FDA.

Bacteria, Particle and Pyrogen Removal

The unique membrane structure of FiberFlo HF capsule filters provides consistent and verifiable pyrogen removal, which is superior to traditional, absolute rated membrane filters. High level endotoxin, bacteria, and spore removal make these point of use filters ideal for a variety of water and process purification applications.

FiberFlo 50
FiberFlo HF 50 offers the highest degree of control of particulates and microorganisms through its absolute pore removal rating of 0.05μm and the retentive characteristics of its Polyphen® polysulfone membrane. It is recommended for the most demanding pyrogen removal applications. FiberFlo HF 50 will remove 100 percent of endotoxin when challenged with a feed concentration of 5.0 EU/ml.**

 

FiberFlo 100
FiberFlo HF 100 offers the best balance of flow, pressure, retentive capacity, pyrogen removal and cost. Its absolute pore removal rating of 0.1μm and overall pore structure gives high water flow rates and excellent control of particulates, microorganisms and pyrogens. FiberFlo HF 100 will remove 100 percent of endotoxin when challenged with a feed concentration of 1.0 EU/ml.**

High Flow Rates

FiberFlo HF capsule filters deliver fine filtration at high flow rates with low pressure drops, performance superior to traditional, pleated membrane capsule filters.

Longer Lasting

FiberFlo capsules have up to six times the surface area of comparable pleated capsule filters. This larger membrane surface area provides greater capacity and longer life than pleated filters, resulting in lower filter replacement costs.

Configurations to Fit Your Needs

FiberFlo capsule filters are available in two sizes, five micron ratings, and a variety of endcap styles. Both inline and crossflow configurations are available.

Quality Assured

Each FiberFlo capsule filter is manufactured to meet medical device quality standards with adherence to QSR manufacturing guidelines. These filters exceed the requirements of USP Class VI Plastics Testing and meet USP XXIII standards for purified water extractables. FiberFlo HF capsule filters are integrity testable by diffusional or forward flow methods.

Sanitizable

The FiberFlo HF capsule filters with the Polyphen® Polysulfone membrane (FiberFlo 50, 100, 200 & 450) can be autoclaved up to five individual 20 minute cycles at 121°C (250°F) and 15 psig (1 bar). To prevent excessive pressures, do not steam sterilize filters in-line.

The FiberFlo 30 gas and vent capsule filter with the polypropylene membrane cannot be autoclaved.

The FiberFlo HF capsule filters can also be chemically sanitized using a 1% solution of Minncare® Cold Sterilant.
