3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges are nylon 6,6 single-zone microporous pleated membrane filter cartridges used for final filtration in food and beverage and industrial applications. These microporous membrane filters can be used instead of pasteurization and are designed to provide a long service life with excellent microorganism retention.
3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridge
3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges have a high surface area that results in a low face velocity and greater throughput for a long filter life and fewer cartridge change-outs. They can withstand a mild alkaline flush after each day’s run for improved throughputs.
The non-charge modified single-layer nylon 6,6 microporous membrane helps reduce the risk of pigment binding in beverages like beer and wine. These filters have a high retention rate that traps microorganisms or spoilage organisms on the filter surface as the beverage is filtered.
Users can integrity test 3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges using bubble point pressure, diffusive flow or pressure hold procedures while the filters are in the housing to help ensure proper filter installation and performance.
3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges can be used for a variety of beverage and industrial filtration applications including wine, beer, water, soft drinks, process water, hard alcohol, syrups, dyes and intermediates.
