Quality, economy and consistent performance.

  • Arrow pointing down indicating fewer cartridges needed and cost savings cup and fork inside blue-green gradient circle icon
    Decreased filtration costs.

    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.

    Nylon 6,6 microporous membrane.

    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.

    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.

    *Consult 3M for detailed regulatory compliance information.

3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges are constructed of a single-layer, reinforced nylon 6,6 microporous membrane pleated with polypropylene upstream and downstream support materials. The cage, core and end-cap adapters are made of polypropylene. Multiple length cartridges with industry standard connectionstyles are produced to fit the most widely used housing designs and system sizes without adding resin or binder compounds. Cartridges are manufactured under an ISO 9001-certified quality system using the most advanced thermoplastic welding techniques for filter integrity. 3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges are 100% integrity tested after manufacture to ensure quality.

When combined with 3M™ LifeASSURE™ BLA Series Filter Cartridges as a prefilter, 3M™ LifeASSURE™ BA Series Filter Cartridges provide an exceptionally long service life for your beverage filtration system.
