- Greater structural stability: The rigid support cage structure resists deformation that leads to media failure, increasing reliability and reducing costs by maximizing the number of cleaning and sterilization cycles the filter can perform.
- Increased filtration media: With up to 20 percent more media area versus comparable products, the filters deliver higher flow rates, lower pressure drop, and longer life.
- High-performance materials: All component materials used are engineered for direct and indirect food contact to help satisfy regulatory standards and audit requirements.
Donaldson Company, Inc. (NYSE:DCI) has made important advances in food and beverage process filtration with its revolutionary new LifeTec® filtration line. The filters are engineered for higher flow rates, greater strength, and longer life than comparable products, with a variety of media options specially designed to remove everything from dirt to bacteria in sterile systems.
