Pressure type filter holders can be used for ultracleaning or sterilizing liquids and gases. Advantec holders have been designed to maximize flow rates and to minimize holder resistance and can be used in either batch or continuous filtration procedures.
Advantages of Pressure Filtration
• Higher differential pressures are possible, resulting in higher flow rates. The pressure differential across the membrane is not limited to atmospheric pressure (≥14.7 psi).
• Unintentional contamination downstream of the membrane is minimized
• Denaturation of proteins and other biological polymers due to foaming downstream of the membrane is avoided
• Vapor accumulation and possible explosion can be avoided using an inert gas to pressurize solvents and combustible or flammable liquids
