SupaPore Halar filters are constructed using Halar fluoropolymer media offering a unique combination of mechanical properties and thermal and chemical resistance. These filters are specifically designed to offer excellent compatibility and effective removal of particulates from solvents, solvent based liquids and ozonated water.

SupaPore Halar filters offer greater compatibility than polypropylene media filters at a cost that is typically lower than PTFE membrane cartridges. The advanced pleated meltblown media used in these filters provides both high flow rates and long life. They are also available with nylon 6 cage, core and end-caps to widen the range of applications SupaPore Halar filters can be used in.

Industries and Applications

The availability of high purity, particulate free solvents is also important to many industries including manufacturers of Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (API), fine chemicals and micro-electronics products. Typical applications include:-

  • API / Fine Chemical manufacturing
    • Removal of fine particulates from product streams
    • Clarification of chemicals used for product synthesis
    • Filtration of solvents used for purification of crystallised compounds
  • Microelectronics industry
    • Particle removal from chemicals and solvents used for microchip production
  • Water treatment

The use of ozone to control bioburden in purified water systems is increasing and ozonated water can damage standard polypropylene cartridges. SupaPore Halar cartridges are excellent for this application, exhibiting enhanced compatibility for water dosed with ozone. They are also used as vent filters to protect water tanks from particulate contamination.

Compatibility*1

SupaPore Halar filters offer improved compatibility with a wide range of chemicals and solvents including:-

  • Acetone
  • Acetonitrile
  • Acetic acid (100%)
  • Diethyl Ether
  • DMAC
  • DMF
  • DMSO
  • Ethanol
  • Ethyl acetate
