Amazon Filters has announced that SupaClean, its contained filtration system, is now available from stock.
The UK manufacturer said SupaClean systems are designed for filtration applications where quick clean downs are required in a multipurpose production site, and the risk of operator exposure needs to be minimised.
"The system consists of Amazon Filter's high-performance filter cartridges enclosed inside two sealed plastic bags," Dr Bill Bradbury, director, explained.
He continued: "This results in the filters and any process fluids being contained inside a secure assembly, providing isolation of the product and filters."
The SupaClean system is contained inside a stainless-steel housing which provides the pressure vessel required for the filtration process. These are ideally suited to the production of coatings.
"In the development of SupaClean filter assemblies, Amazon Filters has paid particular attention to ensure the bags providing containment are reliably sealed into the system," read a company statement.
The manufacturer claimed that through its proven design and quality accredited manufacturing process – SupaClean filter assemblies ensure the users do not suffer the inconvenience, cost or hazard that may result from the bags separating from the rest of the assembly.
"Extensive validation testing provides the assurance that the plastic bags enclosing the filters and product always remain attached even when full of liquid," the company said.
According to the manufacturer, filter change-out using SupaClean assemblies is quick and simple reducing operational costs and the additional costs associated to cleaning. The filter assembly can be simply lifted out of the housing and replaced by a new unit.
The SupaClean filter unit is supplied already assembled this eliminates the risk of operators not installing filters correctly and filter by-pass occurring.
Headquartered in Surrey, Amazon Filters Ltd. designs and manufacture an extensive range of liquid filtration systems. The company is a global supplier of microfiltration – membrane & depth – cartridges and associated industrial, hygienic and sanitary housings.
