D and DS Series Filters

Overview

Steam sterilization is the most effective form of sterilization in many food and pharmaceutical applications. Saturated steam in conjunction with appropriate dwell times results in the complete destruction of micro-organisms that are capable of multiplying and destroying products. Due to the continuous balance between steam and water as a condensate, an effective heat transfer to the components to be sterilized is insured.

The biggest advantage of steam sterilization as compared to other sterilization methods is the complete co-sterilization of elbows, connecting pipe work and transition pieces within the filtration system.

However, if not properly filtered, the steam required to sterilize these systems may contain a considerable amount of rust, particulate or other pipe-scale. The resulting contaminated steam may cause serious faults in the system. If the steam is contaminated, the life of valves, filters and other ancillary equipment is shortened.

Zander series D and DS steam filters solve this problem and consist of porously sintered stainless steel that ensures the effective retention of particles. The filter elements show excellent chemical resistance and mechanical stability due to their special design.

Features

Both D and DS series:
Seamless, porous sintered stainless steel construction.
High flow rate with low differential pressure.
High mechanical stability.
High temperature range.
Separation rates of 25 and 5 micron available.

Series D:
Welded end caps.
Code 7 "Click-Lock" connection with double "O" ring.

Series DS:
Welded end caps.
Double "O" ring plug-in connection.
Replacement elements for other manufacturers' housings.
