Membrane pre-filtration

Membrane prefilter cartridges Sartorius Stedim Biotech membrane prefilter cartridges are made of a combination of nonwoven polypropylene glass fibre and membrane filter materials. The advantage of this combination is its enhanced adsorptive effect to trap colloid impurities while achieving absolute retention of beverage-spoilage microorganisms. This ensures maximum protection of downstream filter systems. Products include:

Sartopure® PP2

The prefilter cartridge with particle-removing depth filter material.

Applications: Retention of particles; reduction of microorganisms by fractionized depth filtration.

Available retention ratings: 50 µm, 3 µm 20 µm 1.2 µm 8 µm 0.65 µm 5 µm

Sartopure® GF Plus

The depth filter cartridge with a charged, nonwoven prefilter for maximum protection

Applications: Retention of particles and colloids, reduction of microorganisms by fractionized depth filtration

Available retention ratings: 1.2 µm and 0.65 µm

Sartofine®

The depth filter cartridge with a high retentive capacity for particles

Applications: Retention of particles and colloids; reduction of microorganisms by fractionized depth filtration.

Available retention ratings: 40.0 µm 3.0 µm 20.0 µm 1.0 µm 10.0 µm 0.7 µm 5.0 µm 0.5 µm

Final membrane filter cartridges

Sartorius Stedim Biotech final membrane filter cartridges are preferred wherever and whenever 100% retention ratings for beverage-spoilage microorganisms are essential. These membrane filters are generally used in the final filtration stage and installed directly upstream of the filling unit. They alternatively enable the sterile filtration of air or gases. Sartorius Stedim Biotech supplies the following membrane types that can be optimally combined for a wide variety of applications: Polyethersulfone (PES), Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).

Sartocool PS

Available pore size: 0.45 µm 0.65 µm

Vinosart® PS

The high-performance membrane filter cartridge for wine and sparkling wine filtration

Applications: Specially developed for the retention of microorganisms, particles and colloids in all types of wine and sparkling wine.

Microbiological retention: Both filters guarantee absolute retention of wine spoiling yeasts and provide highest micro biological safety for the bottling process of wine and champagne.

Available pore sizes: 0.45 µm 0.65 µm

Sartobev PS

The classic membrane filter cartridge for filtration of wine and sparkling wine

Applications: For the retention of microorganisms, particles and colloids in all types of wine and water

Aquasart PS

The high-performance membrane filter cartridge for water filtration

Applications: Retention of small particles and colloids present in mineral water and process water

Available pore size: 0.2 µm

Aquasart Plus

The innovative membrane filter cartridge for liquids to guarantee the lowest filtration costs.

Sartoclear® depth filter sheets for food & beverages

Filter Sheets for Clarification and Microbe-retentive filtration

Sartoclear® filter sheets are used for clarification and microbe-retentive filtration in the food and beverage industry.

The sheets are manufactured from high grade, natural raw materials such as cellulose and diatomaceous earth and can are available in various sizes.

The positive Zeta potential of the Sartoclear® F&B filter sheets strengthens the mechanical retention capacity and clarifying effect, allowing additional adsorption of minute negatively charged particles and colloids. This ensures that downstream filters are effectively protected and also lowers overall costs of consumables.

The Sartoclear® F&B filter sheets are especially developed for Wine, Beer, Fruit juices and Spirits applications.

Sartocell® lenticular depth filter modules for food & beverages

Sartocell filter Modules are used for clarification and microbe-retentive filtration in the food and beverage industry. The use of modules in closed filtration housings eliminates factors like dripping and contaminations from external sources. The sheets are manufactured from high grade, natural raw materials such as cellulose and diatomaceous earth and are available in various sizes.

The positive Zeta potential of the Sartocell F&B filter sheets strengthens the mechanical retention capacity and clarifying effect, allowing additional adsorption of minute negatively charged particles and colloids. This ensures that downstream filters are effectively protected and also lowers overall costs of consumables.

Membrane filter cartridge integrity testing

You can easily check the integrity of all membrane filters with our testing systems. The membrane filters are usually integrity tested before and after the filtration of each batch so that 100% reliable filling is guaranteed. The following test methods are available:

Pressure-hold test for membrane filter cartridges designed for the filtration of liquids

Water intrusion test (WIT) for hydrophobic air and gas filter cartridges
