FILCON FILTERS OPENS LABORATORY FILTRATION DIVISION
Company News Wednesday, December 5, 2012: Filcon Filters cc
Good news for companies who want to reduce lab costs
Filcon Filters has opened a Laboratory Filtration
division which offers a range of laboratory consumables such as membrane filters, filter papers, mesh filters and syringe filters at seriously competitive prices. This will enable companies to make substantial cost savings of between 10 and 40 per cent.
LabFil membrane filters are available in PES (Polyethersulfone), PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene) and CA (Cellulose Acetate). PES is an extra high performance membrane formulated and optimised for critical fluid applications. These membranes have an asymmetric pore structure resulting in graded particle retention and therefore they have excellent throughput. The flow rate is very fast and the membranes are bubble point tested for quality assurance.
LabFil filter papers are manufactured in Europe and only the finest raw materials are selected and strictly quality controlled at reception to ensure that only the purest ingredients of cellulose with high alpha cellulose content are always used. The automated manufacture with online monitoring, confirmed with laboratory analysis ensures consistency in each tested aspect, and that the strict standards are met. The mill produces according to Good Manufacturing Practices and ISO 46002 certification. Each step of the manufacturing process, from incoming materials through to the final material is documented, validated and controlled. All the filter papers exhibit high wet strength which enables them to be used comfortably in filter presses, Buchner funnels or other vacuum apparatus, as well as conventional filtration using gravity. The range of filter papers includes ashless, hardened, industrial grades, general purpose and specialized grades.
Filcon Filters was established in June 2000 and has offices in both Johannesburg and Cape Town. In addition to representing a number of international filtration manufacturers, Filcon Filters has a wide range of filtration products manufactured to its design in Johannesburg. This range includes the Dirt Gobbla (a centrifugal separator), back flushing automatic strainers, in line basket strainers, purge strainers, and bag & cartridge housings. However, Filcon Filters prides itself in the number of years of filtration experience that the technical members have which enables the company to provide clear solutions to filtration needs and problems. Filcon has now extended its product range with the creation of a Laboratory Division to supply membrane filters and filter papers.
