Microfiltration

BEA Technologies manufactures filter elements dedicated to microfiltration in clean rooms rated from class 100,000 down to class 100, in compliance with GMP guidelines for high critical applications. The company conducts non-destructive integrity tests on all membrane filter cartridges that are manufactured for sensitive applications that require absolute bacterial retention. It also has the in-house capability to test filters for performance efficiency by laser particle counters, to conduct bacterial challenge testing and to integrity test with a range of methods.

Filter elements are provided with:

  • PES and nylon membranes for liquid filtration
  • PTFE membranes for air and gas filtration
  • Filter elements made with borosilicate fibres to retain colloidal particles
  • Cartridges made of pleated multiple polypropylene or polyester layers
  • High surface elements up to 10m² to filter highly contaminated fluids
  • Mini-cartridges and flat membranes for laboratory service
  • Pleated regenerable metal filters for high-pressure or high-temperature applications

Treatment of compressed air and gas

Compressed air and gas filters include:

  • Fuel gas filters for gas turbines
  • Coalescer filters to separate oil and water and light condensate hydrocarbons droplets from the main gas stream
  • Filter separators to protect gas compressor stations
  • Filters for vacuum pumps
  • Oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen filters
  • Filters for the protection of sensitive instrumentation
  • Activated carbon filters to retain acid particles and adsorb acid off-gas
  • Coalescer filters and particulate filters for gas dehydration unit protection
