- 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 also solved the challenge of improving dirt-holding capacity while maintaining a low differential pressure, which maximizes the service life of the filter."We set out to make filters that were stronger and longer-lasting," said Jessica Exley, Director of Process Filtration for Donaldson. "These products represent a significant advancement in technology for manufacturers of food and beverages." Donaldson's new process filters are available in a broad range of configurations for nearly every application and technological trend in the food and beverage industry, including sterilization and the downsizing of installation for equivalent performance. Filter lengths can be custom-produced from 10 to 40 inches and available filtration media include polyethersulfone (PES), polypropylene (PP), and polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE). The LifeTec filters use materials suitable for direct and indirect food contact according to the Food and Drug Administration Code of Federal Regulations Title 21, and European Community 1935/2004.
