Vent Filters

  Liquid Membrane Filters- Absolute – Memtrex-FE-S:
Gore PTFE Membrane

 

Memtrex FEFeatures and Benefits:

Memtrex FE-S (MFE-S) validatable sterilizing grade cartridge filters are designed for sterile venting and final filtration of pharmaceutical fluids.

Memtrex FE-S (MFE-S) filters are sterilizing (S) grade cartridge filters for use in validated applications.  The commitment to validation by GE Water is based on the FDA Guidelines that we establish documented evidence of assurance that a specific process will consistently produce a product meeting its predetermined specification and quality attributes.

A detailed Validation Guide is available from GE Water to document our rigorous testing for your records and reviews. The guide includes all the data necessary to assist the user with compliance to regulatory requirements.

The inherently hydrophobic MFE-S filter is just one example of our strong commitment to the pharmaceutical industry. Our complete portfolio includes filters for every stage of processing, and we offer custom solutions for your unique applications. GE Osmonics is your complete source for filters, crossflow membranes, housings and other filtration equipment.

Applications:

FE-S filters are specifically designed for sterile chemical, air, gas and vent filtration. Typical applications include:

  • Tank Venting
  • WFITanks
  • Chemicals
  • Fermentation Air Supply
  • Autoclaves
  • Bioreactors

Available Absolute Pore Size Ratings:

0.2 µm

Materials of Construction:

  • Media – Hydrophobic PTFE
  • Support Layers – Polypropylene Microfiber
  • Core and Cage – Polypropylene
  • Endcaps and Adapters – Polypropylene with Stainless Steel Insert

Dimensions:

Nominal O.D. Nominal I.D. Effective Filtration Area
2.75″ (70 mm) 1.25″ (31 mm) 8.7 ft2 (0.8 m2)

Integrity Testing:

Air diffusion per 10″ module after saturation with 60% IPA/40% water (by volume) solution.

10cc/min at 13 psig (0.90 bar)

Operational Limits:

  • Maximum Forward Differential Pressure – 60 psi (4.14 bar)
  • Maximum Reverse Differential Pressure – 30 psi (2.07 bar)
  • Maximum OperatingTemperature – 180°F (82°C) at 10 psid (0.69 bar) in water

Sterilization:

Memtrex FE-S filters may be autoclaved (121°C, 30 minute cycles) or in situ steam sterilized (125°C, 30 minute cycles) for a maximum accumulated exposure of 10 hours. Alternatively, the filters may be sanitized with compatible chemical agents.

Biosafety:

The component materials of Memtrex FE-S filters are suitable for use in articles intended for repeated food contact as specified in the United States Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21. Memtrex FE-S filters meet the test criteria for USP24 class VI-121°C Plastics and pass the MEM Elution Cytotoxicity Test.

Extractables:

Aqueous extracts from Memtrex FE-S filters contain less than 0.25 EU/ml. The filters typically exhibit low levels of non-volatile residues.
