The Optiseal™ housing is designed for sterile filtration of aqueous solutions and gases using Optiseal cartridge filters. All wetted surfaces are constructed of 316L stainless steel and are electropolished, providing excellent durability and maximum corrosion resistance.
The housing features easy-to-clean vents, drains, and connections for complete sterilization. Vent-insulating rings are included for added safety.
The housing accommodates a double O-ring cartridge configuration, allowing a positive cartridge seal and preventing bacterial and particulate bypass. The Optiseal housing is designed to engage hold-down tabs on the Optiseal cartridge that lock the cartridge in place when the housing is fully assembled.
A Certificate of Quality (type 2.2 according to EN10204) is provided with the product to confirm components conformity and list QA lot release criteria.
