Sartolon Cartridge

Sartolon filters are designed for broad chemical compatibility for specific applications in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry. The double-layer design leads to superior filtration performance compared to other nylon membrane filters and thereby allows more economical design of your filtration process. Sartolon filter elements are ideal for filtration of a broad range of solvents and solvent-containing liquids as well as oily formulations.

Sterilizing-Grade, 0.2 µm Rated Filters

Sartolon Pore size: 0.45 | 0.2 µm (heterogeneous Polyamide double layer)

Your Benefits:

  • High chemical compatibility for the filtration of solvents e.g. in ADC process
  • High filter capacity by in-built pre-filter (double-layer construction)
  • Excellent performance for oily formulations
  • Highly economic solution e.g. for antibiotics processes

Sartolon filters are not suitable for gamma irradiation. For easy integration of non-gamma filters into single-use assemblies, we offer a wide range of possibilities with our Filter Transfer Set solutions. For highest process flexibility Sartolon filters are available for conventional stainless-steel or single-use applications.The filter elements are available in various sizes and connector combinations. Please review the selection guide in the supporting literature.
