Legionella and Bacteria Filters
Legionella, Pseudomonas and other bacteria point-of-use protection shower and tap filter range.
Designed specifically for the POU medical market, the Pentair Filtrix range of shower and tap filters provide a guaranteed source of water, free from legionella and all other bacterial contaminations.
The sterile range of hollow fibre POU filters work in the same way as the standard range to stop and trap all bacteria and fungi, from critical water supplies. However, with its anti-microbial construction it will resist the bacteria growth normally associated with repeated product handling.
The filters are fitted with a unique replaceable filter cartridge, made up of capillary microfiltration membranes containing billions of microscopic pores, which form an ultrafine filter to retain any bacteria or fungi in the water. The result is a source of clean, safe water for critical POU applications.
Both the shower and tap filters have been created to minimize the risk of infection and ensure safety at the last possible moment before patient contact.
Why choose a Pentair Filtrix POU filter Replacement Medical Filter Cartridges
CE marked state-of-the-art hollow fibre microfiltration membrane providing log 7 (99.99999%) reduction of bacteria and log 4 (99.99%) reduction of fungi.
Ultimate point-of-use filter where the membrane is located in the filter head to prevent bacterial build-up. All filters come equipped with non-return check valves preventing backward contamination and water discharge during operation and cartridge replacement.
Water flow restrictor ensures effective and efficient use of hospital water as well as maximising filter life.
Tap filters are designed to allow sideways mounting providing greater space for hand washing.
One filter, validated for 10 weeks (70 days) of use for all bacteria, pseudomonas, legionella, fungi and cryptosporidium protection.
Easily identifiable product coding with full tracking and traceability ensures simple maintenance with two water-resistant date labels indicating cartridge installation and replacement dates, as well as a year planner, to plot and monitor replacement schedule.
The anti-microbial (infection-resistant) construction of the sterile shower and tap filters deliver total protection against bacteria, from water supplies, air borne contaminants and those transferred during handling.
