Optiseal™-M filters with Aervent™ membrane are 0.2 µm hydrophobic cartridges. They are designed for sterilizing applications, removing particles and microorganisms from gases and solvents. They are made with PTFE membrane and polypropylene components for broad application compatibility. Optiseal-M filters with Aervent membrane are designed to be used with Millidisk housings.
Each unit is 100% integrity tested during manufacturing to guarantee integrity. Optiseal-M filters with Aervent membrane are designed, developed and manufactured in accordance with a Quality Management System approved by an accredited registered body to an ISO® 9000 Quality Systems Standard.
Optiseal-M Aervent hydrophobic cartridges will remove particles and microorganisms from gases and liquids for low flow rates. In gases this filter will remove contamination down to 0.01 µm.
