The demand for liquid filtration processes, and the products they enable, grows every year. Microfiltration facilitates the growth of many industries, including food and beverage, bioprocess, industrial, and water treatment, which is why they would benefit from improved microfiltration. Improving microfiltration makes it possible to bring new products to market, make existing fluid streams safer, reduce dependence on additives, and improve processing times for products.

What Is Trupor® Filter Media?

Trupor® leverages two centuries of H&V innovation in fibrous porous materials. It is the company’s first product for buyers of microfiltration membranes, targeting food, beverage, and bioprocessing applications. Trupor brings membrane reliability and maximum performance with the thinnest possible efficiency layer, which is made possible by superior pore size uniformity. Its composite design delivers long life and stable performance. 

Trupor is sold as a rolled good. H&V’s customers convert it into liquid filtration cartridges and use it in many different applications.  

Why Use Trupor® Filter Media?

Trupor® microporous filter media is available in nylon in 0.45 micron and 0.65 micron pore sizes. Other industry-standard materials, including PVDF and PES-PBT composites, are available on a sample basis. 

Trupor can be used in cartridges like current porous materials. It pleats on industry-standard equipment and can be used as a final efficiency layer or upstream of an efficiency layer to add capacity and life. 

Some common applications include:

Food and Beverage: Demand for innovative food and beverage products drives demand for innovative solutions. Trupor’s higher flow rates allow for:

  • Lower production costs
  • Greater yields
  • Longer shelf life

Bio Process: New products are made every day using materials made by microbes.  Harvesting those materials requires many treatment and filtration steps, all of which benefit from using Trupor®.

  • Trupor®’s high flow rates allow for shorter dwell times once products are ready for harvest.
  • Trupor®’s long life and high flux reduce energy costs, making buffer fluids and process water cheaper while maintaining safety and quality expectations.

Industrial: Trupor®’s combination of chemical stability and improved performance make it an attractive material for use in:

  • Chemical mechanical polishing (CMP)
  • Electroplating
  • Ink and dye production

Water Reuse: Trupor® is available in widths up to 40 inches (100 cm), making microfiltration available in new form factors.

  • Trupor®’s high flux improves efficiency in existing vessel infrastructure.
  • Trupor® can defend downstream RO, UF, and NF processes from finer pollutants.
  • Higher flux enables lower-cost treatment as part of existing filtration trains.

Choose H&V’s Trupor® Filter Media

Trupor® media can be processed with standard pleating and production equipment. It can be used as a final efficiency layer for improved flow or co-pleated as a capacity layer to extend life and reduce change-outs. It delivers membrane reliability with best-in-class flow rates. This media is designed to save both money and time. Its composite structure and superior pore size uniformity deliver long life and stable performance in the thinnest possible efficiency layer.
