October 2, 2012 - Innovative EZgrip Carboy Revolutionizes Fluid Storage and Transfer

(KENT, WA) The EZgrip™ Carboy is a pioneering fluid storage and transfer system now offered by Sterlitech Corporation. These carboys combine an ergonomic, space-efficient design with a series of interchangeable caps and spigots to make it ideally suited for a variety of laboratory settings.

“The EZgrip addresses the shortcomings of previous generations of carboys,” declares Mark Spatz, president of Sterlitech. “Two years of study were dedicated to ensure the EZgrip Carboy could exceed its users’ expectations.”

Sterlitech offers the EZgrip™ Carboy in four different material types (polypropylene, copolyester, HDPE, and PFA) with volumes ranging from 2.5 L to 75 L. The 2.5 L and 75 L carboys are, respectively, the world’s smallest and largest carboys in production today.

Rotary molded for maximum strength, each carboy features ergonomic handles and grips which makes them easy to handle and pour. Rounding out the carboy’s capabilities are the VersaCap and VersaBarb attachments, which allow the carboy to support a variety of tubulation arrangements.

Sterlitech Expands Flat Sheet Membrane Selection with Addition of TriSep Products

Full line of TriSep Membranes now available at Sterlitech

(To view this press release in PRWeb, click here)

Kent, WA (March 9, 2011) – Sterlitech Corporation is proud to announce its partnership with TriSep Corporation, leading producer of a broad range of membrane elements for the water treatment industry. Available immediately, TriSep’s flat sheet membranes join Sterlitech’s already robust product line, which includes membrane sheets from noted manufacturers GE Osmonics, and Toray Membrane Group. All of the flat sheet membranes are offered individually as sheets or conveniently pre cut for use with the HP4750 stainless steel stirred cell, CF042 test cell, and Sepa CF cross flow cell.

TriSep Flat Sheet Membranes
The addition of TriSep membranes is significant because one of the fastest growing market segments for Sterlitech’s bench scale systems is research and development for desalination and wastewater purification, which TriSep has specialized in for over 20 years. "We have seen a steady increase in customer demand for our bench scale equipment, and correspondingly, a wider demand for a greater variety of flat sheet membranes," explains Sterlitech President Mark Spatz. TriSep flat sheet membranes are available in Reverse Osmosis (RO), Nanofiltration (NF), Ultrafiltration (UF), and Microfiltration (MF). Mr. Spatz went on to say, "The addition of TriSep products illustrates our desire to support the wide-ranging needs of our customers."

Sterlitech’s bench scale equipment is used by major universities and large corporations worldwide. Common uses for these items include research on desalination, water reclamation, food and beverage processing, and water purification.

Acrylic Crossflow Cell Creates New Possibilities

Kent, WA November 17, 2010

CF042 Acrylic Cell

CF042AC Acrylic Crossflow Cell

Sterlitech Corporation is proud to unveil the newest model in the CF042 series: the CF042AC. Manufactured out of acrylic, this unique, transparent version allows users to visually monitor the filtration process in order to improve research and development discovery and permit the exploration of new applications. This innovative design is solely offered by one of the leading producers of bench scale filtration equipment.

“We’ve seen a number of inquiries from customers wanting to know if the acrylic cell can be used for a variety of operations ranging from the typical to the completely unique,” according to Mark Spatz, President of Sterlitech. Standard uses for crossflow cells include: Membrane Development Testing, Flat Sheet Membrane Quality Assurance, and RO to MF Separation and Purification. Mr. Spatz added, “Being able to actually see the filtration process makes monitoring and evaluation much easier.”

Feed solution enters the membrane cavity in the CF042AC, flowing tangentially across the membrane surface. A portion of the stream permeates the membrane and flows through the permeate carrier located on the underside of the top half of the cell, finally exiting through the outlet on the top of the cell into a user designated collection vessel. The concentrate stream, which contains the material rejected by the membrane, continues sweeping over the membrane, exiting via the concentrate outlet on the underside of the bottom half of the cell into a discharge vessel or back in to the feed vessel. A concentrate control valve on the low pressure side of the holder allows for complete user control over the flow of the solution.

The acrylic model joins the lineup of Sterlitech’s other CF042 cells made from Delrin, PTFE, and 316 Stainless Steel. Selecting the proper cell depends largely on the chemical compatibility of the sample and the pressure requirements for the application. Sterlitech representatives are available to answer any questions on the CF042AC and their entire catalog of products. In addition to the CF042, Sterlitech also carries the HP4750 and Sepa CF series of crossflow cells.
