Introducing Sterlitech’s New SEPA CFX Cross Flow Filtration Cell
Sterlitech is pleased to announce the formal launch of the Sepa CFX Cross Flow Filtration Cell. The Sepa CFX is a member of the Developer family with an active membrane area of 140 cm2 (22 in2), the largest of bench-scale cells sold by Sterlitech.
This unit can be used at higher pressures than the previous Sepa CF, with a maximum pressure rating of 137 bar (2000 psig). The cell body ships complete with CFX plates, o-rings, bolts, and membrane. Additionally, this cell features torsion hinges and a gas spring for easy and safe operation.
Cross flow filtration units like the Sepa CFX are used to evaluate the performance of filter membranes under different operating conditions. The Sepa CFX Cell interfaces with a combination of stainless steel shims, feed spacers, and membranes, increasing the range of simulated flow dynamics. This flow cell can enhance performance and filtration quality assurance in numerous applications including processing of food, drinks, pharmaceuticals, water desalination and purification, and wastewater treatment.
