Biopharm Blended Cellulose Cartridge Filters - 1

BBC Cartridge Filters Blended Cellulose Membrane Applications Pre-filtration to increase the life of expensive final filters Final filtration — reduce bacteria counts and particle levels Typical Fluid Streams: Reagents/Standards Animal Serums Human Serums/Albumin Culture Media Fermentation Products Dimensions Length BBC filters are used for prefiltration and clarification applications in biopharmaceutical processing. Applications include bacteria and particulate removal in cell culture media, plasma products, serum, SVPs, LVPs and other biological products. The filter elements are 100% integrity tested during production. Blended cellulose membranes are particularly suited for the filtration of products that contain elements that can adsorb to the media, such as preservatives and proteins. The lower binding characteristics of the membranes make them a good choice for filtration of valuable protein solutions such as MAb solutions, serum and other biologicals. Construction Materials Filtration Media Blended Cellulose Membrane Media Support Center Core Outer Support Cage Sealing Method Thermal Bonding Buna, Viton® (or FKM), EP, Silicone, FEP Encapsulated Silicone, FEP Encapsulated Viton (or FKM) Filtration Area BBC cartridge filters are hydrophilic and manufactured with blended cellulose membrane. The process creates a thick membrane with very high loading capacity and high flow rates. The blended cellulose material is very low protein binding and allows protein rich solutions to pass with little impact on protein content. Outside Diameter Maximum Operating Parameters Differential Pressure • Forward Operating Temperature Recommended Changeout Pressure 82 °C (180 °F) at 10 psid (0.69 bard) in water 35 psid (2.4 bard) Sanitization/Sterilization Filtered Hot Water 90 °C (194 °F), 30 minutes, multiple cycles, max 3 psid forward flow In-line Steam For all elevated temperature procedures above, a stainless steel support ring is required.
