Manufacturers of dairy products, bottled water, soft drinks, wine, and beer will benefit from three major technology advancements in the new line of process filtrations;
- Greater structural stability: The rigid support cage structure resists deformation that leads to media failure, increasing reliability and reducing costs by maximising the number of cleaning and sterilisation cycles the filter can perform.
- Increased filtration media: With up to 20% more media area versus comparable products, the filters deliver higher flow rates, lower pressure drop, and longer life.
- High-performance materials: All component materials used are engineered for direct and indirect food contact to help satisfy regulatory standards and audit requirements.
Donaldson's new process filters are available in a broad range of configurations for nearly every application and technological trend in the food and beverage industry, including sterilisation and the downsizing of installation for equivalent performance. Filter length can be custom-produced from 10 to 40 inches and available filtration media include polyethersulfone (PES), polypropylene (PP), Polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE).
The LifeTec filters use materials suitable for direct and indirect food contact according to the Food and Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, and European Community 1935/2004.
