Easy in Cleaning
Sartorius Stedim Biotech utilizes a unique filter cup design that is conducive to allow a thorough and easy cleaning. The raised filter cup design eliminates small grooves and tight spaces that might be difficult to clean while still permitting free, complete drainage of the filter housing.
Sartorius Stedim Biotech offers the widest range of housing sizes and design options to exactly match your flow rate, pressure differential and hold-up volume requirements. Connections are available in many styles and sizes. Custom designs and unique configurations are available upon request.
Ease of Installation
Sartorius Stedim Biotech housings are sold ready to install with all gaskets, o-rings and clamps. The flexible connectivity allows the end-user to install the housings to new or existing hard-piped installations.
Quality of Materials
Only 316L Stainless steel is used for all wetted surfaces to provide maximum durability. Supplied O-rings and gaskets are compounded only from FDA approved materials that meet the requirements for direct contact with food and biopharmaceutical products.
Quality Control and Documentation
An important feature of pharmaceutical process validation is documentation. All our housings are given stringent inspections during and after manufacturing including dimensional checks, weld inspections, surface measurements and hydrostatic testing. Each housing is labled by laser with a matching serial number on the bell and base. This serial number provides complete traceability for the Quality Control Certificate, Material Test Reports, and Weld Logs.
PED 2014/68/EU Standard
Sartorius Stedim Biotech Stainless Steel Housings are designed and manufactured according to the Pressure Equipment Directive PED 2014/68/EU. Our manufacturing process follows the highest quality standards and is monitored by an internal quality control system as well as by independently notified bodies on a regular basis.
