OUR FOCUS ON DEPTH FILTRATION

We are focused in a niche in the global filtration market. Depth filtration of valuable liquids by means of depth filter systems is our world. In our specialized field, we are proud to be the leading company worldwide.

MICROFILTRATION

FILTROX is focused in depth filtration, that means on the removal of solid particles in the size of 0.1 to 10 microns, generally referred to as microfiltration. Typical microparticles are bacteria, yeast cells, cell fragments, or proteins. These particles are not visible for the human eye, but they make the liquid turbid so that one cannot see through. Through microfiltration, the liquid becomes clear.

HIGH VALUE

The liquids we filter typically have a relatively high value and are very sensitive to hygienic requirements. A lot of them end up in the human body in some sort. Therefore, our customers in the pharma, biotech, cosmetics or food&beverage industries manufacture according to very high quality standards.

LIQUIDS

FILTROX specializes only in solid-liquid separation. Most of our customers want to remove micro particles from their liquids (“clarification”) or bacteria (“cold sterilization”). Some customers are also interested in the unfiltrate, trying to collect certain solids from a liquid (“cake harvesting”).

DEPTH FILTRATION

FILTROX specializes in depth filters. In a depth-filter, liquids are forced under pressure through a three-dimensional matrix, typically formed of cellulosic or other fibers, in which the particles are being trapped. Depth filters are typically used in applications with higher dirt loads, where other filters such as membranes do not provide sufficient life-time. Depth filters typically have a thickness of 3-4 mm, which is 3000 to 4000 times the size of a 1-micron particle.

SYSTEMS

FILTROX develops, manufactures and sells complete systems comprising both filter media (e.g. filter sheets) and filter equipment (e.g. filter presses). We are committed to support our customers from the time a process is setup in the lab to full-scale production, both with filter equipment and filter media.
