Series 48 Filter Housing Heaters are a cost-effective and low maintenance solution for biopharmaceutical processes requiring superior thermal control. These 120 VAC heaters prevent vapor condensation in sterile vent and process filters and piping systems and help maintain preferred material viscosities. They offer tight temperature control and advanced functionality, while complying with strict safety regulations.
Series 48 heaters feature a unique temperature controller inside a NEMA 4X enclosure which integrates a temperature process controller, a high-low temperature alert, and power switching with a safety high limit. The Display Module allows the user to locally adjust the operating parameters, including temperature set point, high/low temperature alerts, high limit (safety) set point, control mode (on-off/PID) and related parameters. It contains an alphanumeric LED display that displays the heater’s current temperature and alert condition.
The Series 48 filter housing heaters consist of specially designed molded silicone foam for optimum performance and increased thermal uniformity with a thermocouple embedded in the heater mat for tight temperature control. The contoured design conforms to the housing body, preventing heat loss. Corrosion-resistant stainless steel snaps allow the heaters to be easily removed for filter cartridge replacement. External heater surfaces safe to touch.
Series 48 filter housing heaters are used in conjunction with sterile vent and process filter housings and are ideally suited for processes such as:
The NEMA-rated heaters allow for installation in the harshest of environments. The units can be mounted in any location where moisture is present, including clean-in-place (CIP) wash-down areas.
