Tefflux Mutliple Tube Candle with Porous PTFE Membranes
ProFilco’s Tefflux multiple tube pPTFE membrane candles reduce the footprint for the total installation by allowing smaller vessels compared to standard membrane filter candles. This leads to lower initial investment cost.
For existing filter systems, a higher capacity can be achieved by replacing standard filter candles by multiple tube candles.
For its tubular back pulse filters, ProFilco uses Tefflux pPTFE membrane technology. This is one of the most economical systems for obtaining a sparkling clear filtrate without pre-coating the filter candles.
The key benefits of our Tefflux pPTFE membrane technology are:
- No pre-coat required, direct, one step filtration
- Reduces waste disposal cost, no pre-coat fibers
- Minimal operating & maintenance costs
- Simplified automation
- Maximum product clarity
Additionally unlike other membrane filter socks for these types of filter systems, ProFilco’s Tefflux filter socks are created from a monolithic, seamless porous PTFE tube
Advantages of using a monolithic, seamless porous PTFE tube are:
- No seams, stitches, or tape that could develop leaks
- A durable surface due to a thick PTFE structure, not a laminate
- Increased mechanical strength
- Reduced risk of developing pinholes
ProFilco has an exclusive cooperation with Markel Corporation- the producer of tubular porous PTFE membranes.
Tefflux pPTFE membranes cover a wide range of filter applications, due to its thermal and chemical resistance, and especially for purification of large volumes in low ppm level. Suitability for each application has to be determined by tests is our lab. In addition to our Tefflux pPTFE membrane technology ProFilco offers pre-coat and other filter socks.
