SilcoNert Treated Filter Housings

SilcoNert Treatment for Stainless Steel Filters

What is SilcoNert®?

SilcoNert® (formally called Sulfinert®) from SilkoTek® gives the ultimate passivation treatment of stainless steel surfaces.

Filter elements and housings can adsorb active components in sample streams and the surface area of stainless steel filters can increase sample contact by a large amount. This is not a consideration with our disposable filter media as these offer an inert surface, however, the stainless steel filter elements must be considered for treatment with SilcoNert® to create a completely inert flow path. The SilkoTek® chemical vapor deposition technology ensures the treatment penetrates even the smallest pores in the surface of the filter housing.

Why is treatment required?

Metal components should be treated when analysing for parts-per-billion levels of sulfur compounds & mercury. Contamination by moisture is reduced and sample system performance improved.

What filter housings can be treated?

We can offer all our stainless steel filter housings and PTFE-membrane housings with the SilcoNert® treatment. Just ask for a quotation
