Food & Bev Hydrophobic PVDF Capsules - 1

FPVWB Capsule Filters High Capacity Hydrophobic PVDF Membrane Applications Wine Bottled Water Aseptically Packaged Liquids High capacity membrane for maximum filter life Representative filter modules from each manufacturing lot are integrity tested before it lot release from manufacturing. Filtration of air and process gases Vent filtration for protection of tank contents The capsule media surface area, filter core design, pleat configuration and pleat packing density have been optimized to provide increased life resulting in lower filtration operating costs. Filtration of solvents, alcohols and other non-aqueous liquids FPVWB Capsule Filters - Filtration Area Capsule Length High Capacity Hydrophobic PVDF Membrane Flow Rate / Filtration Area The following table represents typical water or air/gas flow at a one psi (69 mbar) pressure differential across a single 2 inch capsule with 1.0 ft² (930 cm²) of media with 1/2” FNPT ports. The test fluids are water or compressed air at ambient temperature. Higher pressure drops are acceptable, but as flows increase the pressure drop of the housing becomes more apparent. 0.22 μm Water Flow Rates (gpm) Air/Gas Flow Rates (scfm) Pore Size * For approximate flow rates for 5” through 30” capsules, refer to the appropriate cartridge data sheet Construction Materials Maximum Operating Parameters Liquid Operational Pressure Filtration Media High Capacity Hydrophobic PVDF Membrane Gases Operational Pressure Operating Temperature Media Support Forward Differential Pressure 50 psid (3.4 bard) at 20 °C (68 °F) Center Core Reverse Differential Pressure Outer Support Cage Sealing Method Thermal Bonding Recommended Changeout Pressure Food and Beverage Grade Food and beverage grade PVFB capsules are manufactured for critical applications in food and beverage processing. Made with high capacity hydrophobic polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membrane, these capsules are used for filtration of air, solvents and alcohols, compressed gases, and as vent filters. The high capacity membrane provides high dirt holding capacity, excellent throughput and high efficiency particle retention.
