Baclyser® IL3, IL5, IL10

Inline hollow-fibre membrane filter for water hygiene in medical facilities

  • Effective protection against waterborne bacteria through sterile filtration 
  • High flow rate 
  • Flow volume of 3,000, 13,000 or 56,000 litres (guide value) 
  • CE-marked medical devices 
  • Connection options: 8 mm push-fit quickrelease coupling or G½ʺ screw thread
The Baclyser® IL are a range of CE-marked medical devices for inline installation in cold water supplies to medical appliances. The Baclyser® IL features a hollow-fibre membrane for microfiltration resulting in a 7-Log reduction of Brevundimonas diminuta. Thus, all waterborne bacteria such as pseudomonas and legionella are blocked. This complies with the FDA definition of sterile filtrated water. Filtration does not alter the chemical composition of water. The Baclyser® IL range is designed to suit the customer needs. Baclyser® IL3/IL5: suits installations where space is at a premium. Baclyser® IL5/IL10: deliver high flow rates. The flow volumes shown in the table are for guidance only. The particular filters operating time is dependent on the flow volume and water quality. The Connection options of 8 mm push-fit and G½ʺ screw thread offer ease of installation and changeability. The used filter should be disposed of responsibly.

* Guide value recorded at a flow rate of 6 l/min. and mains water quality at 5 bar; user-specific water quality, pressure conditions and the requisite flow rate have an influence on the flow volume and filter operating time.
** Continuous dosage of ≤ 10 ppm over operating time; short-term (1h) high dosage (400,000 ppm h) for chemical disinfection.
*** Application with higher temperatures only after consultation with Aqua free.

In Medical centers across the developed world and despite stringent drinking water standards we see waterborne bacteria such as pseudomonas and legionella bacteria repeatedly threatening patient safety. These pathogenic bacteria breed and multiply in biofilm buildup in drinking water pipework. Membrane filters are established in the Medical sector as the most reliable method of protection against waterborne bacteria as the filter ensures that the bacteria remain contained within the pipework ensuring patient protection.
