Pure-Screen filters reduce waste

Whitman Laboratories traditionally used filter socks during the batch manufacturing of skin care products which required changing at the end of every batch resulting in considerable wastage of expensive product and costly downtime.Axium says that its range of 316L Pure-Screen filters, which are being widely used throughout the pharmaceutical, food, beverage, dairy and cosmetic industries, require minimal maintenance and are quick and simple to maintain as they have no moving parts and do not require tools for access or cleaning.The filters, which can be fabricated to customer requirements are available with interchangeable wedge-wire filter elements ranging from 25 micron up to 6000 micron as standard, and are suitable for backflushing, CIP (clean-in-place) and SIP (steam-in-place).
