Generally, the PES membrane filters are very suitable for the filtration of aqueous phase samples. The high-performance PES membrane filters have the advantage of low protein adsorption, so they can reduce the loss of samples to a minimum level. Also, in comparison with other membrane filters, the PES membrane filters have a higher flow rate and better handling capacity. As a result, they are always bestsellers among all kinds of like products.

Furthermore, the high-performance PES membrane filters have a high level of consistency as well as a slight batch difference to make sure that when the laboratory worker is filtering unwanted particulate matters, new pollutes will not be produced. In a word, other than sterilization and filtration, the PES membrane filters can also be applied in the regular preparation of samples, the clarification of lysate, and combined filtering of magnetic beads and resin beads.

During sterilization and filtration, the PES membrane filters with the pore size of 0.2 μm are always solid choices. However, there are lots of other options of pore sizes including 0.1 μm, 0.45 μm, and 0.8 μm. Basically, the membrane filters with the pore sizes of 0.45 μm and 0.8 μm are mostly used in the clarification of lysate and pre-filtration.

Parameter of HAWACH Hydrophilic PTFE filter membrane

Features and applied industry
Hydrophilic PTFE filter membrane uses PTFE as raw material, biaxial stretching using the unique node fibrillation of polytetrafluoroethylene membrane, with a smooth surface, chemical resistance, breathable and impermeable, large air permeability, flame retardant, high temperature, strong acid and alkali resistance, non-toxic and other characteristics. The finished product has high filtration efficiency, which can reach 99.99%, zero-emissions; Also, it features low running resistance, fast filtering speed; long service life, reusable, thus reducing running costs.

Hydrophilic PTFE filter membrane is mainly used for anhydrous sample filtration, for caustic acid and caustic solutions, HPLC sample preparation and moving image clarification and for the filtration of flue gas in various industrial furnaces such as chemical industry, steel, metallurgy, carbon black, power generation, cement, waste incineration and so on.
