Donaldson introduces next-generation sterile air filters

Donaldson Company has introduced its next generation of sterile air filters with its new P-SRF line. These filters are designed to lower production costs while improving the purity of air used in product processing and packaging.

The P-SRF filter line includes two new variations: P-SRF V, a borosilicate depth media suitable for final filtration of processes and venting applications; and P-SRF X, a pleated PTFE final membrane filter in a strong stainless-steel housing designed for extreme conditions and temperatures.

Both filters deliver the following features:

  • A log reduction value of 7 or greater for bacteria, viruses and particles (down to 3 nanometers) to improve product and process integrity.
  • Mechanical stability and temperature resistance up to 392 degrees F (200degrees C).
  • Extended life and reliability under extreme conditions, including vapor phase hydrogen peroxide and ozone sterilization—up to 150 cycles for the P-SRF V and 200 cycles for the P-SRF X.
  • De-wetting characteristics for faster filter drying times intended to minimize the downtime needed for clean-in-place and sterilization-in-place cleaning.

The P-SRF V will replace the current P-SRF N filter elements from Donaldson, while P-SRF X is an all-new PTFE membrane filter element with proprietary media and a protective stainless-steel cage housing for extreme conditions.

All P-SRF filter elements comply with FDA CFR Title 21 as well as the European Food Contact Regulation EC/1935/2004.

The United Fresh Produce Association Washington Conference is coming up in September.Is anyone in Washington, DC listening to America as we call for cooperation and collaboration to serve the entire country, not just our polarized extremes? During the virtual Washington Conference this September, Rep. Rodney Davis (IL-13) and Rep. Jimmy Panetta (CA-20) will share lessons from their history of working across the aisle, including during COVID-19, that may help lead to a more bipartisan Congress in 2021 and beyond. hubs.ly/H0twS4X0
