STERIPleat Nylon Membrane Filter Cartridge

STERIPleat Nylon cartridges are based on a naturally hydrophilic nylon membrane. When combined with quality all-polypropylene cartridge components and high integrity manufacturing techniques, the nylon membrane provides a high strength, long life cartridge of consistently precise particle retention across a wide range of particle sizes. STERIPleat Nylon cartridges benefit from high protein binding characteristics of nylon membranes. They are also highly resistant to integrity failure caused by steam sterilisation.
