As one of the industry’s leading innovators of filtration technology, SmartFlow Technologies has designed and built the PuroSep® Phoenix to provide a compact, easy to use, robust platform offering unparalleled flexibility and performance at a value you cannot ignore. The Phoenix is the perfect choice for process development optimization and small / pilot scale production runs.

The design of this system emulates a full scale production solution by utilizing high end components such as a self draining, sanitary, positive displacement pump, 316L stainless steel fluid path components, high resolution instrumentation, and intuitive, easy to use automation packages. This allows for the accurate measurement of operating conditions and membrane performance to assist you when scaling up to production level or scaling down for process optimization studies. In addition, the Phoenix has the option to mount the pump, controls, and instruments on one frame such that various brands and types of filter elements can be quickly and easily rolled up and clamped into place for fast versatile turn around times regardless of the brand of filter element employed.

The PuroSep® Phoenix is offered in five standard retentate loop sizes of ¾”, 1”, 1 ½”, 2”, and 3”. For lower hold up volume, the 3/4” retentate loop size may be used in conjunction with the OptiSep® 3000 filter holder and module. In addition to SmartFlow Technologies’ cutting edge, patented OptiSep® filter modules and holders, the PuroSep® Phoenix also incorporates the ability to operate other filter module formats such as hollow fiber, ceramic, cassette, and spiral. This flexibility makes the Phoenix the ideal process development system for your current and future projects.

SmartFlow Technologies makes configuring the optimal system for your process easy by providing standard automation packages comprised of all required components to ensure the best solution possible. These packages include manual control (Manual), automated flow and TMP control (Manager Package), and fully-automated control with recipe mode for complete walk away functionality (Controller Package). Integration with your existing SCADA or process network is also possible with these automation packages. In addition to the standard automation offerings, SmartFlow Technologies offers a host of additional hardware accessories to accommodate the most demanding process.

  • These accessories include:
  • Stainless Steel Jacket Tanks
  • Steam in Place
  • Dual Point Level Control
  • Permeate Flow Meter
  • pH / UV / Conductivity Sensors
  • 21 CFR Part 11 Compliant Video Recorder
  • OptiSep® 3000 / OptiSep® 7000 / OptiSep® 11000 Filter Holder and Module

By incorporating the dual point level control, the functionality of controlling a second pump or system is added. With this configuration, the liquid level within the PuroSep® Phoenix tank would control an electrical outlet on the back of the system capable of activating an ancillary pump to add starting material or buffer to the tank as the process requires. This feature also adds the advanced capability of automating diafiltration processes or simultaneous processing with two or more systems. Use of our most popular automation package, the Controller, provides the ability to incorporate multiple process recipes for varied membrane elements. In addition to providing the most robust and low volume solution, the Phoenix is also backed by SmartFlow Technologies’ professionally trained applications and technical support staff.

When partnering with SmartFlow Technologies, you gain the advantage of decades of innovation and quality enhancements in both systems and filter modules. For a complete, high quality, turn-key solution, you can trust SmartFlow Technologies to deliver.
