Food & Bev High Capacity PVDF Cartridge Filters - 1

FPVWL Cartridge Filters High Capacity PVDF Membrane Applications Wine Soft Drinks Bottled Water Dimensions Length Outside Diameter Representative samples from each manufacturing lot are tested for integrity to ensure consistent performance. FPVWL cartridges are hydrophilic and manufactured with high capacity PVDF polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane. The proprietary membrane casting process creates a thick membrane with high contaminant holding capacity, excellent retention characteristics, high flow rates and low protein binding. PVWL membrane provides excellent throughput and is available in multiple retention ratings to help protect product quality and assure consumer safety. Applications for FPVWL filters include prefiltration and final filtration of beer, wine, bottled water and aseptically packaged products like juices. Our food & beverage grade PVWL membrane filters are designed for use as prefilters in aseptic filling applications for wine and beer to remove spoilage organisms and preserve flavor. 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 PVDF membrane is particularly suited for the filtration of products that contain elements that can adsorb to the media, such as proteins. The very low binding characteristics of PVDF make it an especially good choice for filtration of beer and wine.
