        EPI-MAX

        The design of the EPI-MAX filters is an extremely innovative solution to problems in the IV market.

        We have developed the product with two opposite and parallel layers of hydrophilic membrane in a small package.

        Thus miniaturizing the product and at the same time ensuring higher flow rates and extremely fast filling and wetting performance, the mechanical strength of the filter for pumped applications is superior and the specifications for high-pressure applications are greatly improved by transforming the product in a category reference.
