The KrosFlo® KTF TFF Systems were developed for large-scale downstream tangential flow microfiltration or ultrafiltration of shear sensitive cells or process solutions. Both systems use a single-use non-pulsating levitating magnetic pump controlled by a PLC.
KrosFlo® KTF Systems are set up on a mobile cart that supports the hollow fiber filter module, an integrated Pro-Connex® flow path, an integrated non-invasive retentate control valve, up to two peristaltic pumps, the levitating recirculating pump, a clamp on ultrasonic retentate flow meter, a flow though ultrasonic permeate flow meter and the electrical cabinet with built in 15” color touch-screen HMI. The mobile cart is made of Sanitary 304 Stainless Steel to meet NEMA 4X wash down requirements.
