Germlyser® IL 1500
The Germlyser® IL1500 inline, hollow-fibre filter, which is specially used in cold water inlet lines of medical equipment. This reusable water filter is an inline, sterile filter with a 0.2 μm hollow-fibre membrane which displays retention of at least 7 log units1, thereby offering reliable protection of patients from infections by all critical water-borne germs such as legionella, pseudomonas, staphylococci or stenotrophomonas over a service life of up to 24 weeks and depending on the respective application and water quality. The chemical composition of the water is not altered.
The hygienic design and the use of bacteriostatic material in the housing prevents retrograde contamination incurred by splash water or physical contact. On expiry of the service life, the respective filter must be changed and disposed of in an environmentally-friendly manner via material recycling. This filter change is easy to complete thanks to installation of the appropriate push-in adapter.
An individual product marking on the product packaging guarantees traceability and facilitates the documentation process within the framework of hospital hygiene procedures.
1 Measured in accordance with the international ASTM F838-15a standard - Standard Test Method for Determining Bacterial Retention of Membrane Filters Utilized for Liquid Filtration
- Size: L 123 mm x Ø 43 mm
- Retention: 7 log steps Brev. dim.
- Pore size: 0.2 µm
- Operating time**: Depending on the application
- Chlorine resistance***: ≤ 10 ppm
- Minimum flow rate: 6 l/min at 5 bar, at 25°C
- Maximum operating pressure: 5 bar
- Adaption: Quick-release coupling
As the operating time increases, the water quality can impact on the maximum available flow rate. For further information please do not hesitate to contact us.
² The operating time depends on application conditions like water quantity and water quality. ³ Continuous dosage of ≤ 10 ppm over operating time; short-termin (1h) high dosage (400,000 ppm) for chemicals disinfection.
