GVS Calyx - Capsule Filters

GVS Calyx - Capsule Filters are disposable filter units designed for the removal of particles or bacteria from aqueous or solvent solutions and gas streams. They are ready to use, eliminating the need to disassemble, clean, and reassemble filter housings. GVS capsules contain no glue or surfactants and feature serial layer filter design for increased throughput and extended life. Two upstream vents are included to facilitate venting in any position. All capsules containing membrane media are pre-flushed with purified water to reduce extractables. GVS capsules made with polypropylene housings are food complaint (FDA/EU), as restrictions may apply depending on final applications. All capsules pass class VI toxicology testing and are integrity tested prior to shipment.

Applications: Filtration of aqueous solutions, general purpose laboratory filtration, venting and gas filtration, HPLC sample preparation, sterilization and clarification of aqueous and organic solvent solutions.
