These versatile, composite depth and surface-type filters retain contaminant within the depth matrix of the borosilicate glass microfiber medium, as well as on the surface of the mixed cellulose esters membrane.
They combine high dirt-holding capacity with excellent throughput. The two filtration stages, depth and membrane, offer high dirt-holding capacity with high retention efficiency to protect final filters such as Vitipore™ II and Vitipore II Plus. Bevigard™-P filters can be repeatedly hot-water regenerated, thus providing highly cost-efficient filtration.
Bevigard-P filters are manufactured in a facility whose Quality Management System is approved by an accredited registering body to the ISO® 9000 Quality Systems Standard.
Bevigard-P Cartridge Filters are designed for all types of application where both high adsorption capacity and fine filtration are needed, for example with water, wine and other beverages.
