The UltraCap H.D. assembly is completely disposable, thus reducing cleaning and cleaning validation costs and enabling faster and more convenient change-outs than traditional cartridge and filter housing systems. In addition, the inline capsule filter was designed to withstand higher temperatures and operating pressures than conventional high-capacity capsule filters. The unit’s inline flow configuration is intended to provide high flow rates by reducing housing pressure loss.
The UltraCap H.D. filter is available in lengths from 10 to 50 in. and pore sizes ranging from 0.04 through 99 µm. Users can choose the new inline version or the existing T-style version of the system depending on their requirements.
The system can be configured in a pass-through layout that makes it possible to segregate loading and unloading in areas in terms of aseptic classification and degree of operator protection. The system integrates easily with isolators designed to separate operators from toxic chemicals. Under isolated conditions, operators can access all working areas easily and safely using gloves for activities such as changes of format and sampling.
