Needle-felts and fabrics for critical applications: Filtration processes in the pharmaceutical
industry are very diverse. Frequently, only a highly specialized solution leads to a reliable
and efficient process. Optimized yield and the availability of the filter elements are always
essential. Heimbach offers filter media that meet the highest demands of pharmaceutical
- Process reliability - sterile packaged
Sterile packaged filter elements made by Heimbach are used where highest demands are placed on process reliability. All sterilization procedures employed are based on proven methods, which e. g. are used to sterilize surgical instruments.
- Compliance provides security
The amount of extractables is very low. Pharmaceutical compliance is based on EU and FDA regulations and directives. Beyond that, the concentration of the following substances is below the lower detection limit:
- Bisphenol A
- Heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb)
- Chlorinated hydrocarbons
- Durability and high efficiency
Depending on the individual design, Heimbach sterile packaged filter elements are temperature resistant up to 250 °C and chemically resistant in a pH range from 1 - 14. Materials available are PP, PET, PPS and PTFE. A high -performance inert PTFE membrane is used for the removal of submicron particles.
- Audited processes, traceable products
Heimbach production processes have been repeatedly audited by pharmaceutical companies. Including large multinational groups. Optionally, every individual filter element can be provided with an inkless label to ensure 100 % traceability. For further questions please contact us. We look forward to your telephone call or e-mail.
