Pure PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) fibers are sintered to create a unique depth-type filter. These PTFE filters offer superior handling and minimal fiber slough-off compared to glass and quartz filters. Naturally hydrophobic, the media will separate aqueous from non-aqueous phases of mixtures. Offers high air permeability and minimal pressure drop which makes it an excellent choice for venting and gas filtration applications.
PTFE fiber filters are biologically inert and resistant to chemical attack. No absorbtion of acid gases. Relatively durable and can be folded. Autoclaveable.
Applications: Use as a prefilter to a membrane or as a final filter. Filter hot acids and strong solvents. Use for filtering samples when contamination from media must be held at critically low levels. Venting type applications. Collection of airborne dust particulates. Filter solvents for inks and PGMEA in LCD industry.
