Application of Sterile Filter Elements


The R+F FilterElements GmbH Sterile Filter is designed for use in pharmaceutical applications as well as for sterilization tasks, meeting the regulations of the HIMA (Hygienic Industry Manufacturers Association). All elements achieve their intended specifications.

Product Quality


Product quality is of the utmost importance to us. Our sterile filter elements are manufactured under strict quality control guidelines, with test reports generated for both raw materials and during production. Before packaging, each sterile filter undergoes inspection to ensure its integrity in accordance with EN 1822.



Each filter element is uniquely identified with a batch ID for complete traceability. Our testing methods adhere to EP, HIMA, FDA, ISO, and ASTM D 2986-91 standards, supplemented by additional procedures from R+F FilterElements GmbH’s extensive microfiltration experience. Individual integrity test results come with custom reports as a “Works Inspection Certificate” (DIN EN 10204), included in each packaging unit marked with the article number and batch ID, alongside the operational manual for sterile filter elements.
