Product Details
  • Flow-enhancing construction allows air flow with a relatively low pressure drop, resulting in a smaller vent filter assemblies
  • Hydrophobic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane helps prevent pore blockage in vent applications, extending filter lifespan

  • 100% forward flow integrity tested prior to release

Our LifeASSURE™ PFS Series PTFE Filter Capsules combine flow-enhancing construction with a liquid‐validated, bacteria retentive, hydrophobic PTFE filter membrane, providing excellent air flow rates using small assemblies. Our filters are used for applications requiring 0.2 micron sterilization of air, gas, solvents and chemicals in life science industries.

Validated PTFE Membrane
Our LifeASSURE™ PFS series PTFE Filters use a hydrophobic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) membrane, which helps minimize pore blockage from moisture in vent applications. Our filters are validated by a liquid bacterial challenge for complete retention based on the ASTM standard, which provides a high level of reliable sterilizing performance.

High Air Flow Construction
Our LifeASSURE™ PFS Series Filter Capsules are constructed to achieve high air flow at a given pressure drop. The PTFE membrane is pleated with polypropylene nonwoven flow-enhancing layers during construction to achieve optimal flow rate performance at low differential pressures.

Engineered for Quality and Reliability
We manufacture LifeASSURE™ PFS Series (PDF, 1015.1 Kb) filter capsules using all polypropylene structural components (end caps, adapters, media support, inner core and outer cage). The 3M Purification Inc. Quality Management System is approved by an accredited registering body to the ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 Quality Management Systems, and the cartridges are 100% forward flow integrity tested prior to shipment. All LifeASSURE PFS Series filter capsules are shipped with a Certificate of Quality affirming compliance with manufacturing quality specifications. Supporting Drug Master File (DMF) documentation is on file with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA)

Applications:

  • Sterile venting of process tanks
  • Sterile filtration of process air and aseptic filling lines
  • Sterile venting of lyophilizers
  • Sterile venting of autoclaves
  • Sterile air filtration on blow, fill, and seal machines
  • Sterilizing filtration of fermentation inlet and exhaust air
