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. If your current filtration performance is satisfactory, replacing the filters with the correct equivalent will do. 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).
It happens. Unfortunately, more often than anyone would like. You are about to process a new batch of fluids or adjust the current load and inventory status reports show that only half of the filters needed are in stock. Your next regular delivery is two months out. A phone call to your vendor reveals they can expedite your next order and it will arrive in six weeks. What do you do? You jump into crisis management mode, determined to figure out – how else can we get filters delivered fast? The answer to that question is now driving your business goal for that batch or shall we say, the cart is now leading the horse. In this article we will discuss options for improving delivery strategies and putting the horse back in the lead.
