Soft Drinks/Soda

soda splash

Particle removal, bacteria control, water treatment, and package sterilizing is the role of our high-performance filters in protecting soft drink product quality and safety. 


juice splash

Filtration aids in extending shelf life and preserving the flavor of your products. Juices are protected by removing sediment and spoilage organisms in ingredients, tanks, and process gases.

oil splash Edible Oils

Clarification filters remove the sediment that causes haze and removes other visual contaminants so your product is clear and appealing to your consumer.

liquid sugar splashLiquid Sugars

CPF Clarification filters remove suspended solids in many types of sugars used as ingredients (sucrose, glucose, etc.) as well as final products such as syrups.

Quality Assurance and Standards

Critical Process Filtration filters are designed for use in cGMP compliant processes. Our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility and quality-management system both meet ISO 9001:2015 standards. Each operation from assembly and test to cleaning, drying, and packaging is done in appropriately rated clean rooms, and each filter is assigned a lot code to ensure the traceability of manufacturing data and materials. A sophisticated MRP system collects and processes real-time data from manufacturing centers and inspection points. 

USP Biosafety and FDA Compliance

The materials used to construct pharmaceutical-grade filters are non-toxic and meet the requirements for the MEM Elution Cytotoxicity Test and the requirements for Biological Reactivity Tests in the current version of the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for Class VI - 121 °C Plastics. Critical Process Filtration filters comply with Title 21 CFR sections 210.3 (b)(6) and 211.72, for non-fiber-releasing filters. The levels of bacterial endotoxins in aqueous extracts from pharmaceutical-grade filters are below current USP limits as specified for water for injection.
