Porvair’s steam filters are available in a comprehensive selection of grades for the bespoke requirements of production processes across applications such as sterile packaging, pharmaceuticals, brewing, dairy farming, food and beverage, and chemical production. Providing further specialisation, Porvair supplies a range of filters for the production of particulate-free culinary steam for critical applications that come in direct contact with food, beverages, pharmaceuticals or product contact surfaces. These exceed the 3A Sanitary Standards 609-03, and are designed to remove more than 95% of 2 micron particles. All components used in the construction of elements are FDA approved to 21CFR, manufactured according to DIN ENISO 9001, and meet or exceed the latest EC Directives for Food Contact. Porvair’s process steam filters are used where clean, dry steam is critical for plant performance and continuous operation, but where there is no direct contact with the manufactured product. Its Sinterflo® stainless steel filter elements are available in 316L sintered metal fibre, metal mesh and sintered metal powder media. Porvair says these steam filter elements also have an exceptional dirt-holding capacity and are designed to withstand demanding temperature and pressure conditions. The company adds that these steam filters may be regenerated to extend the life and efficiency of the elements.
