Meissner introduced a new vent option for its inline UltraCap H.D. portfolio. The new Sterile Process Design (SPD) vent is optimized for use in critical single-use sterile filtration processes. The large knurled knob is easy to actuate with gloved hands, while multi-turn flow initiation allows for precise metering of flow during venting operations.
The SPD vent is a fully captured assembly, which makes it impossible for operators to accidentally over-actuate, damage or remove the vent from the filter during use, according to Meissner. The SPD’s dual vent stem seals ensure a sterile process envelope and a polymeric sealing technology negates the need for O-rings.
