Product Information

Sartofluor® is especially suited to demanding venting applications with high volume gas streams, extreme humidity, and stringent Steam In Place regimes. The hydrophobic PTFE membranes used in Sartofluor® filters offer reliability, process security, and a long service life.


The Sartofluor® family of filters has been on the market for over three decades and has improved over time in response to changing customer needs. Today, experience and filtration expertise are combined in our best sterile venting device ever. Sartofluor® contains PTFE membrane making it the most hydrophobic vent filter available. The inherent hydrophobicity of the PTFE membrane is unaffected by repeated autoclaving or steaming and guarantees sterile filtration of both dry and moist gases. Sartofluor® filters show superior air flow rates throughout all sizes and formats.

The Most Reliable Sterile Venting Device

The 0.2 μm single-layer hydrophobic PTFE membrane offers superior moisture repellence and exceptional gas flow rates at low differential pressures.

All components were developed and are produced under the full control of Sartorius.

In addition, the following critical requirements are met:

  • Retention of ≥ 10⁷ Brev. diminuta/cm² in aerosol and liquid
  • Retention of ≥ 10⁷ Bacteriophage MS2/cm² in aerosol
  • Retention of particles sizes 0.005 μm | 0.3 μm
  • Bi-directional sterility proven by worst case liquid Bacterial Challenge Test in forward and reverse direction
  • 100% integrity tested prior to release
  • Clear labelling with Lot. number and individual unit number. All information laser marked on each filter housing.

Regulatory Compliance
