Water Production Process Steps - Why use our filtration consumables?

Water needs to be filtered to ensure safe drinking and to conform to stringent health regulations around the world. In the case of process water, filtration is used to assure uncontaminated water. Even if there is pollution upstream, our filtration products help to ensure safe water.


Venting with our Sartofluor® GA cartridges to protect your water from microbiological contamination at the well. Sartofluor® GA, sterile air filter also protects iron and manganese sand filters. Jumbo Star Sartopure® GA is the ideal large cartridge to prevent contamination in your water storage/buffer tanks during filling and emptying at high flowrate.

  • Cartridges that are completely traceable

  • Filters that comply with EU regulations No 21/2011 and No 1935/2004

  • Robust design with high resistance to both mechanical and chemical stress

  • Inert filter media

  • Fully sanitized and re-usable filters

  • Intense filtration areas that enable a high throughput

Sartofluor® GA Cartridges for Filtration of Air & Gas

Gas filtration using Sartofluor® GA filters eliminates the risk of contamination. Our Sartofluor® GA filters ensure no risk of air contamination, sterile air filtration which conforms with standards, high flow rate and technical support for filter sizing and no risk of collapsing tanks.

Water treatment is the next step, incorporating pre-filter and final filter processes using our Sartopure® IND, Sartopure® PP3, Sartopure® GF+, Aquasart® PS, Aquasart® Plus, Aquasart® Plus XL and Aqua Star CA cartridge filters. The sterile filtration ensures optimum retention of microorganisms before bottling.

  • Lower cost pre-filtration filters that remove contaminants, thereby protecting and increasing the life span of final filtration filters
  • Benefit from several polypropylene filtration layers
  • Have finer, less bonded fibres and provide higher porosity
  • Have unequalled filtration capacity
  • Reduce particles that clog water
  • Improve clarification
  • Deliver more precise particle retention

Sartopure® IND Particle Reduction Filter Cartridges

Sartopure® IND cartridges are developed for a wide range of industrial prefiltration. They combine a high dirt holding capacity, protective abilities and extremely high flow rates. Sartopure® IND cartridges are easy to clean for an efficient regeneration if necessary.

Water Sterile filtration before filling into bottles is done through our Aquasart® Plus, Aquasart® PS, Aquasart® Plus XL and Aqua Star CA cartridge filters for 0.2µm sterile filtration but also with Sartobev® for 1µm membrane filtration of bottled water. The air at the filler must be sterile by filtration through Sartofluor® GA and the steam used for the sterilisation has to be cleaned with particle retention through Sartosteel® filters. 

  • Asymmetric membranes that deliver high throughput

  • High chemical compatibility

  • Correlation studies between challenge bacterial with Brevundimonas diminuta.

  • Integrity testability

  • Filters that comply with EU regulations No 21/2011 and No 1935/2004

  • Filters which guarantee consistent quality

  • Filters produced with lot numbers to enable complete traceability

Aquasart® Plus Membrane Filter Cartridge

Aquasart® Plus filter cartridges feature a high-performance, double-layer pleated hydrophilic polyethersulfone membrane. Aquasart® Plus membrane filter cartridges are used for final filtration prior to bottling of water and non-carbonated drinks.
