Amazon Filters reports that its SupaPore H0P filters have been specifically designed for venting applications on tanks and vessels and for the filtration of inlet gas and off-gas in fermentation applications. SupaPore H0P cartridge filters contain a very fine rated borosilicate glass fibre media surface modified with fluoropolymer to provide excellent hydrophobic properties. This ensures high flow rates and low-pressure drops are achieved under a wide range of conditions. The use of hydrophobic media in SupaPore H0P cartridges helps prevent the filter from wetting-out during use. This is critical in applications where water vapour is present to ensure that air flow into and out of the equipment is maintained.
Typical applications that will benefit from the SupaPore H0P filters include tanks containing liquids at elevated temperatures, autoclaves where steam may come into contact with the filter and gas and air filtration in fermentation processes. The high flow characteristics of SupaPore H0P filters allow the use of smaller filters keeping costs to a minimum, Amazon says.
