The Sanitary Filtration Process

Sanitary Filtration

Sanitary filtration is used in many different applications from dairy operations, water, pharmaceuticals, sterile air/gas to wine and beer processes. Sanitary is a broad term that relates to health or to the protection of health. A sanitary filter is both designed and built in a manner were it inhibits the growth of bacteria. Sanitary filter housings are built using materials such as electro-polished stainless steel alloys that can be cleaned to prevent the contamination of the end product.

Integrity of Filtration

To ensure the integrity of your process, we can provide NSF certified filter housings and filter cartridges that will always meet your quality requirements without any compromises. The end result is a product that meets all your quality specifications and the taste requirements for consumable products to exceed customer expectations.

Sanitary filtration is a critical process that requires a product that can perform effectively to meet stringent performance and regulatory requirements, and we work with our team of technical partners who ensure consistent results each and every time in a cost-effective manner.

Wide Range of Filtration

We can provide a broad range of different Filter Medias in various configurations that are available in submicron absolute ratings to higher micron ranges for coarser levels of filtration as required for the specific process. If your application is a high volume flow application with high solids loading we can design systems that can filter effectively to reduce the contamination level to 1500 micron pore size down to a polishing stage of 0.5 um or less.

No matter what your sanitary application requirements or industry you work in, you can depend on a company that has decades of experience to provide the answer in a cost-effective and timely fashion. We offer filtration solutions for pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, medical systems, food & beverage and water treatment processes and will always work with customers to understand their expectations and provide multiple filtration options that will meet the quality and safety of the final product.
