East Hills, NY (October 3, 2006) - - Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL), the global leader in filtration, today announced the availability of the Pall Aria? SA water filtration system to meet the sanitary requirements of food and beverage producers. The new system combines stainless steel components with proven microfiltration (MF) or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane modules. Available in custom configurations with flow rates ranging from 50 to 300 gpm, the system treats water from municipal, surface or ground sources. With the Pall Aria SA system, food and beverage processors can meet water quality standards and reduce their total cost of operations, while maintaining product safety and quality.
"The new Pall Aria SA system offers the same advantages as Pall Aria systems operating at more than 150 sites around the world. With the addition of stainless steel components, the SA version has been tailored to meet 3-A or other customer-specific requirements for hygienic and sanitary use in food and beverage production and other industry sectors," said Jonathan Pratt, Senior Vice President, Pall Food and Beverage. "The system enables our customers to benefit from the most up-to-date cleaning and sanitizing methods."
The Pall Aria SA stainless steel components and durable hollow fiber MF or UF membranes withstand the caustic, oxidant, and acidic solutions commonly used in sanitary applications. The system also features automated air scrub and enhanced flux maintenance processes. The semi-automated clean in place process promotes efficient membrane recovery.
The Pall Aria system produces a continuous supply of clean water regardless of source, without the need to replace any elements. In some cases, the system may be used prior to a reverse osmosis (RO) process in food and beverage production, and may extend the life of the RO system.
