Hollow fibre filter modules are particularly useful in tangential flow filtration because processes can easily be scaled-up from small volume applications to full-scale production.
- Hollow fibre membranes are anisotropic in structure
- Filter housings are engineered to handle higher pressures and autoclaving
- Low protein binding increases the product yield of each processing run
- These filters have FLL/FLL connections and come in three effective lengths
Tangential flow filtration is used in both microfiltration and ultrafiltration applications. Ultra-filtration membranes have a high-density skin layer for less fouling and a fairly open outer support structure for increased filtration rates. Micro filtration membranes have a retention defining microporous outer skin and a more open inner layer for increased filtration with higher recoveries. Single-use eliminates the need for costly stainless-steel systems and increases manufacturing flexibility.
Modified polyethersulfone (mPES) is an advanced hydrophilic membrane filtration chemistry that provides higher flux rates for faster processing times, excellent selectivity for separation applications.
