Depth Filter Cartridges


Applications

Depth filter elements are intended for preliminary microfiltration of neutral or aggressive liquid and gaseous media (compatible with the material of construction of the elements) as well as for protection of membrane filter elements (removal of mechanical contaminants, reduction of bioburden). Depth filter elements can be used as final filters, if absolute removal of particles larger in size than a certain value is not required.

Mechanisms of depth filtration

Technofilter's depth filters ensure retention of particles 0.5 to 100 μm in size and are produced from fibre materials: polypropylene, glass fibre and cellulose, as well as fine stainless steel meshes. Depending on the nature and thickness of the filter layer, depth filters retain 95 to 99% of all particles whose size exceeds the rating of the filter. The process of filtration takes place mainly inside the filter material and uses mechanisms of mechanical retention as well as adsorption.

In terms of composition and structure, depth filters can be likened to a bulk labyrinth sieve consisting of extremely small cells with very fine and infinitely ramified channels. They form a hollow structure whose volume comprises approximately 70 to 85% of the total volume of the filter, imparting to the filter a high capacity for retention of microparticles.

Various suspensions, colloids and lipids are trapped while moving by the long paths of that labyrinth, the mechanical effect being reinforced by the adsorption effect.

Unlike surface membrane filters, depth filters feature increased dirt holding capacity and extended service life, which makes them indispensable virtually in all process systems involving filtration.

Design

The wall of the hollow cylinder of the filter element is the filtering barrier, consisting of several layers with average pore size increasing from the outside towards the inner layers. This arrangement of filter material enables retention of microparticles across the whole depth of the filtering barrier of the element: larger particles are retained predominantly in outer layers and smaller particles, in the dense deep area of the element. Variable porosity of the filtering barrier results in high dirt holding capacity and long service life of depth elements.

Determination of technical and operating characteristics

Technical and operating characteristics of depth filter elements are determined in accordance with regulations and specifications for the products, Russian and foreign standards and techniques adopted by Technofilter. Depth filter elements are checked for hydraulic resistance (dependence of flux on pressure) and particle retention efficiency. All elements are washed with deionized water to remove organic and mechanical contaminants.
