Dead-End Filtration System for laboratory scale
Manufacturer: Parker Hannifin
Patented technology includes on-board software and hardware system that automates, optimizes and documents Dead-End Filtration in laboratory scale. The FilterTec System is an exclusive software-driven fluid delivery system that automatically adjusts feed rate and backpressure and documents 15 filtration parameters during your DEF. Ideal for DEF benchtop applications, including Filterability Studies, Vmax determination, and Filter-Train studies. Increases DEF filter utilization up to 35%.
