A line of “Animal-free” filter elements for critical biological use

BEA Technologies S.p.A is focused on the development of products with high performance in filtration applications for the pharmaceutical industry.

The headquarters in Pero, just outside Milan, is based on three facilities that occupy a surface area of 12,000m². In the plant there are two cleanrooms where the company produces all its membrane filters and filter elements for use within food and pharmaceutical applications. In 1994, BEA became one of the first filtration companies in Italy to get its quality assurance system certified in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 9001 standard. All filters are produced in a certified cleanroom, that is continuously monitored by computer systems.

The company has launched its BEAPURE line of filter elements, which are completely animal-free products, being the focus of this webinar.

To be animal-free means to ensure that any polymeric part or component used in production is without any trace of animal origin. After an extensive research and development phase the team at BEA Technologies was able to test and select only the purest polymers for the production of the filters. The BEAPURE is a full line of “Animal-free” filter elements with a high quality grade and traceability that is consistent between each lot of production. The range includes filter elements with PES and PTFE membranes, and a series of filters made with borosilicate fibres and PP nanofibres for highly effective filtration of active ingredients and solutions in drug manufacturing processes. NYLON66+ membrane, with positive charge, completes the series of membrane cartridges adopted for liquid sterilisation and endotoxin removal in drug-manufacturing processes.

The webinar will be centered on these key points being:

• filters made of animal-free pure components and parts
• controlled original materials in compliance with the latest regulations
• Migration tests according to European regulations
• protection from contamination during production
• easy and quick identification of materials to help operators ensure quality
• production traceability

The deep experience of BEA Technologies and implementation of the BEAPURE concept provide value and services to support customers processes to obtain highly safe products. BEA Technologies has been an active presence on the filtration market for the past 50 years, working successfully worldwide in various sectors, including beverage, chemicals and pharmaceutical markets.

Please join us to learn from BEA Technologies founder how to obtain reliable results and enable clients to leverage filtration and separation activities to obtain safety and quality prescribed for the process, gaining relevant cost savings.
