Filter elements for the pharmaceutical industry

Reliable processes—sterile packaging

Sterile packaged filter elements from Kayser are used wherever process reliability demands the most stringent requirements. All sterilization methods used are based on proven methodologies, such as those used for sterilizing surgical instruments.

Safety through conformity

The amount of extractable components is very low. The basis for pharma conformity is the requirements of the EU and FDA. In addition, the concentration of the following substances is below detectable limits:

  • Bisphenol A
  • Melamine
  • Heavy metal (Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb)
  • Chlorinated hydrocarbons
  • Benzene

Consistency and efficiency

Depending on the design, our sterile packaged filter elements can be used at temperatures of up to 250 °C and pH levels from 1–14. Available materials include PP, PET, PPS, and PTFE.

Ultrafine particles (< 1 µm) are separated out by an inert PTFE membrane.

Audited processes, traceable products

The production processes at Kayser Filtertech have been audited multiple times by pharmaceutical companies. These including globally active corporations. Every filter hose can be labeled without ink upon request in order to ensure 100% traceability.
