    LifeASSURE™ BLA Series Media Sheet are ideal for pre-filtration and clarification for food and beverage applications. Our BLA series media sheets are available in a range of sizes to fit plate-and-frame filter presses and help protect and extend final filter service life, decrease change-outs, and reduce effluent microorganism content.

    The LifeASSURE BLA Series Media Sheet offers high performance as either final filters for spoilage organism removal, or as a pre-filter. In prefiltration, they are effective in prolonging the service life of LifeASSURE™ BA, BNA and BDA final filters and help protect other downstream membrane filters.

    We manufacture LifeASSURE BLA series media sheets to meet a wide range of filtration and clarification requirements in the beverage industry. As a result of their high-performance and long service life, our LifeASSURE BLA series media sheets help lower related operational costs.

    Significant Micro-Organism Reduction Is the Key
    For effective filtration and clarification of beverages, micro-organism reduction is a crucial outcome needed from economical, reliable filter systems. In tests with Brevundimonas diminuta, LifeASSURE BLA™ series 020 grade filters exhibited an average log reduction value (LRV)* of 7.3 and the LifeASSURE BLA series 045 grade filters exhibited an average LRV of 3.5.

    To meet a wide range of needs, we provide an array of BLA series filter choices. When selecting your LifeASSURE series filter, consider the following criteria:

    • The nature of the fluid
    • The particulate/colloid content of the fluid
    • The amount of pretreatment or clarification of the fluid
    • The rating of any downstream membrane filter being protected
    * LRV= log10 (number of organisms in/number of organisms out)
