Filtration Technology

April 1, 2010

GE Energy Services’ Filtration Technologies Team will highlight several new technologies at MD&M West for medical and life science companies needing enhanced filtration and separation for various applications.

The technologies optimize flow and retention characteristics by relying on expanded polyterafluoroethylene (ePTFE) membranes. Compared to other porous materials, ePTFE membranes show superior performance as a barrier to liquids, particles and aerosols that may contain viable bacteria and viruses. GE’s Aspire microfiltration and venting membranes are easily integrated into a wide range of product designs and filter housings, offering different economic or environmental benefits.

The GE technologies include: Edge lamination, patented media that have laminations just on the edges of the ePTFE film; Green chemistry technique for oleo-phobic technology, a treatment process that modifies how the oleo-phobic treatment is applied to its ePTFE film; and steam sterilization, where membranes maintain stable performance even after 200 steam sterilization cycles.
