    Additional Information


    • Memtrex MP-B filters may be autoclaved or in situ steam sterilized (up to 257ºF [125ºC] 30-minute cycles) for a maximum accumulated exposure of 10 hours. Alternatively, the filters may be sanitized with compatible chemical agents.
    • GE certifies that the materials contained in its Memtrex MP-B pleated filters meet US FDA requirements for food contact under the applicable regulations in 21 CFR. For further information, contact GE technical services. Memtrex MP-B filters meet the test criteria for USP Class VI-121ºC Plastics.
    • Aqueous extracts from Memtrex MP-B filters contain less than 0.25 EU/ml. The filters typically exhibit low levels of non-volatile residues. GE Filter cartridges are designed and manufactured for resistance to a wide range of chemical solutions. Conditions will vary with each application and users should carefully verify chemical compatibility. Please contact your GE distributor for more information.
