Pleated panel filters
Pleated panel filters with self-supported media offer high strength and moisture resistance, and eliminate the need for an expanded metal backing. The inherent strength and stiffness of the X-Treme media result in a consistent pleat shape, spacing, and height. The filters are resilient and snap back to their original shape if damaged or deformed, with no loss of structural integrity. The frame and media pack are bonded with a water-repellent adhesive to maintain structural integrity; even when wet, the filters will not delaminate, buckle, or collapse.Airguard

All-metal process filters
HyPulse HyLine filters are suitable for process applications that require small-scale filtration solutions. The products perform as small process filters, with backwash and blowback capabilities. A threaded element connection allows high-efficiency filtration without the limitations of gasket-sealed cartridge filters, and is available in a single- or multitube design. The porous metal media are permanent and cleanable, and can withstand high temperatures and corrosive environments. Filters are available in various media grades and in alloys including titanium, nickel, Hastelloy, Inconel, and 316L stainless steel.Centrifugal filter
Mott Corp., Farmington, CT
A centrifugal filter device provides ultrafast high-recovery purification and concentration of specific proteins such as macromolecules found in human specimens such as serum, urine, spinal fluid, and other biological fluids. Sample volumes up to 15 ml can be concentrated in 10 to 15 minutes with neglible loss of sample. The Amicon Ultra-15 has a regenerated cellulose membrane that minimizes adsorption of the macromolecules and provides high recovery of fully functional proteins. The filter is compatible with most rotor types and allows for direct pipettor access, which eliminates the need for an extra processing step. The product is available in packs of 8, 24, and 96 filter units.Millipore Corp.
