Your process requires a sterile end product. To achieve this, you plan on installing a sterilizing filter. But with so many choices, how do you choose the best one? Some suppliers offer single layer membrane sterilizing filters. Others may offer filters with two layers of membrane, sometimes with different pore sizes (a larger pore size in front of the final sterilizing filter), or two layers of the identical material in the same pore size. Each plays a specific role in reaching your sterilizing requirements. This article will discuss the many factors in choosing a sterilizing filter and list our products that deliver targeted retention.
How to evaluate a replacement filter equivalent to the one you're using now. For any number of reasons, you’re looking for a new filter supplier.

But if you need to improve filter performance, a different configuration of your current filter or a different type of filter will be the solution. Either way, a quality supplier should take the time to determine exactly what equivalent means to you, and help you identify the appropriate filter(s).
