UltraSnap® Filter Assembly

A single-use filtration system that configures pre and final filters into a plug and play solution.

Flexible in design, the UltraSnap® filter assembly configures UltraCap® H.D. high capacity capsule filters ranging from 10 to 50 inches into a single-use filtration system. UltraSnap® filter assembly designs can be optimized to accommodate processing requirements for flow rate, throughput and retention ratings. Securing multiple pre and final filters into a pre-assembled single-use solution, the UltraSnap® assembly arrives ready for immediate use. For added convenience, the entire filter assembly can be pre-sterilized.

The UltraSnap® assembly is a highly configurable filter system. The filter assembly can be optimized for clarification through sterile filtration applications, making the scale of single-use filters virtually unlimited.

Meissner’s UltraSnap® filter assembly eliminates the time and expense associated with change-out of filters from stainless steel housings and the associated cleaning and reassembly of the filter/housing unit(s). This time saved from cleaning operations results in less downtime between filtration runs, and improved productivity. The UltraSnap® filter assembly has very low hold-up volume, which minimizes product loss during change-outs and ensures maximum product recovery. UltraSnap® support stands and carts can be designed to integrate the filter assembly into the end-user’s unit operations.

Meissner offers a FlexCessory™ stainless steel accessory fork to support the UltraSnap® assembly, which can be mounted to the Dual End-Ported Biocontainer Cart for easy transport. The accessory fork can also be mounted to the FlexCessory™ Universal Laboratory Stand for table top applications.
