STERIPleat Vent – Sterile tank vent filtration

STERIPleat Vent filters use a hydrophobic PTFE membrane for the removal/reduction of bacteria in tank venting and gas filtration applications. These filters can be used with our STERALine filter housing range to provide a compressed gas or atmospheric venting solution. STERIPleat Vent filter cartridges can also be used for sterile gas filtration.
