MaxiCaps is a unique new housing design concept from Sartorius that brings the benefits of single use filter elements to process scale. The incorporation of Sartolon 0.2 µm standard filter cartridges into self contained, high quality polypropylene housings makes it possible to operate large scale filter installations without the need for filter housings. So additional costs for cleaning of housings and cleaning validation can be eliminated. MaxiCaps are ready-to-use and can be easily replaced should any operational difficulties occur. By relying on established process validation data for Sartolon standard cartridge elements, MaxiCaps can easily be implemented into current filtration processes. MaxiCaps are available in 10”, 20” and 30” versions allowing flexibility in process design. Sartolon 0.2 µm sterilizing grade MaxiCaps are designed for broadest chemical compatibility for specific applications in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry. Featuring a unique hydrophillic nylon membrane, Sartolon MaxiCaps are ideally suited for sterilizing grade filtration of a broad range of solvents and liquids containing solvents. The Nylon membrane material provides a broad chemical compatibility especially for aggressive solvent solutions. Sartolon MaxiCaps achieve higher total throughputs than any other sterilizing grade Nylon filter element on the market. The heterogeneous double layer construction 0.45 µm + 0.2 µm provides higher total throughputs than homogeneous double layer types due to the “build-in prefiltration”. Sartolon MaxiCaps are designed, developed and manufactured in accordance with a ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System. Each individual element is tested for integrity by Diffusion- and Bubble-Point-Test prior to be released assuring absolute reliability and a Validation Guide is available for compliance with regulatory requirements.
Typical applications include sterilizing grade filtration of:
- Solvent containing solutions
- Bulk Pharmaceutical Chemicals
The Nylon membrane of Sartolon® MaxiCaps provides a broad chemical compatibility, making Sartolon® filters the ideal choice for filtration of aggressive solvent solutions.
Easy to Use:
Sartolon® MaxiCaps are delivered as individually packed sterile units. On site, pre-use sterilization can be eliminated.
Sartolon® MaxiCaps show superior total throughput and flow rate performance over competitive Nylon filter elements which allows you to design your filtration system more economically.
The use of the disposable capsule design concept avoids investments into stainless steel filter housings and eliminates additional costs for cleaning of housings and cleaning validation.
Sartolon® filter elemnts are fully validated as sterilizing grade filters according to HIMA and ASTM F-838-05 guidelines.
Each individual element is tested for integrity by B.-P. and Diffusion-Test prior to be released assuring absolute reliability.
Sartolon® MaxiCaps are designed, developed and manufactured in accordance with a ISO 9001 certified Quality Management System. A Validation Guide is available for compliance with regulatory requirements.
