PORT WASHINGTON, N.Y., February 09, 2010 - Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL), a global leader in filtration, separation and purification, today introduced a new filtration process that significantly improves the safety and quality of infant formula. The Pall process is engineered to prevent microbial contamination through intensive filtration, while preserving nutritional quality by minimizing the need for repeated heat treatment during manufacturing.
Pall integrates several process components to raise the standard of purification and reduce the frequency and cumulative effect of heat treatment, including:
Multiple filtration barriers to prevent microbial contamination at potential process entry points,
A wide selection of filter products for effective microbial removal, designed for critical environments, and
Advanced testing devices for the monitoring of critical filter integrity.
Pall products enable infant formula manufacturers to use less heat in the production process while helping to maximize product integrity and brand protection.

Producers are highly concerned about potential contamination by heat resistant bacteria and require improved methods to remove bacteria without compromising nutrition. Pall provides filtration solutions that meet both product safety and nutritional value requirements,” said Aline Sokol, marketing manager for global dairy markets.
