    FAQ

    QuestionAnswer
    What is the difference between Aerex and Aervent? Aervent cartridges have a 0.2µ PTFE membrane and are used in pharmaceutical applications where it is critical to use a phobic filter that has proven bacterial and viral retention capabilities. Common applications for Aervent are fermentation air applications, bioreactor inlet and outlet filtration and sterile process gases. Aervent filters have a liquid bacterial retention claim as well as a virus aerosol retention claim.

    Aerex filters also have a 0.2µ PTFE membrane but they do not come with a liquid bacterial retention claim. Common applications for Aerex include bulk intermediate manufacturing and non-pharamaceutical applications such as industrial fermentation. Aerex filters do have a virus aerosol retention claim.
