Membranes

"To build long term customer relationships through value and excellent service."

Membranes

I.W. Tremont offers a line of high quality
membrane filters available in a variety of
diameters and pore sizes and suitable for a wide range
of applications including cell retention, In Vitro Diagnostics,
particle collection, clarification and sterile filtration of
aqueous solutions, particulate analysis and microbiological analysis.

The following membrane materials available include:

  • Mixed Cellulose Ester (MCE) - Biologically inert mixtures of cellulose acetate and cellulose nitrate result in membranes with a smoother and more uniform surface than pure nitrocellulose. Easy to handle, less cracking and fracturing than traditional CN membranes. A pure surface with no additional smoothing treatment or surfactants

Capabilities

We offer OEM capabilities for engineering, molding and insertion of many additional membrane and membrane/pre-filter options.   We can work with most of our own membrane and specialty materials as well as convert your supplied product.  Please contact us for full engineering capabilities as well as process flow and project management services in this field.

  • Filter insertion in clean room by manual as well as fully automated means
  • Molding in place, over molding and support structure molding of fragile media
  • Ultrasonic welding of barrel structure for increased leak / burst resistance
  • Multi-process mold extensions for inclusion of single or multi-level prefiltration media
  • Digital variable print capabilities along arc on barrel face for identification purposes
  • Blister packing for EO and gamma sterilization
  • Pure virgin PP, verified by HPLC against U/L extractables

Tremont offers an impressive list of manufacturing capabilities and expertise in glass microfiber and cellulose filter media.  We leverage a longstanding and contractual relationship between several mills to put 6 papermaking machines and formers into production.  With this enormous capacity at our disposal, we are able to take a project from lab bench through pilot scale and ultimately full production with ease.

Our partner mill output exceeds 120 grade variants manufactured in the USA and internationally.   With chemists and scientists of several disciplines, experienced papermakers, the finest controls-on-machine plus a rigorous QA protocol, it is not often a project challenge is beyond our capability.

Paper making capabilities:

  • Paper making machines in flat bed, slant bed, high speed fourdrinier and rotary forming styles
  • Furnish capabilities of: glass blends, cotton cellulose, soft wood, cotton/wood pulp, synthetics
  • Various levels of water filtration, including R.O. for superior purity in analytical and diagnostic applications
  • Web widths from 24 inch (60.9cm) to 72 inch (182.8cm)
  • Basis weights from 8lb to 138lb @ 3000ft2 (13g/m2 to 225g/m2)
  • Binder free, Binder burn off, Acrylic, PVA and hybrid chemistries
  • Gantry mounted traversing densitometry as well as most other high-resolution verification sensors
  • Static pressure, mixed and multi-stage head boxes
  • Binderless, mixed box, spray on and pulper-saturation style binder introduction
  • Single and multi-stage vacuum boxes
  • Several screen variants for very high consistency formation
  • Wet stream or dry deckle trim
  • Unique end of machine board cut-off capability for very high density, high basis weight celluloses
  • FDA grade manufacturing capabilities
  • Lot selection, furnish verification and supply chain assurance
  • Cotton batch traceability "to farm" with unique commodity procurement services
  • Converting capabilities

After the papermaking process is complete, our experienced converting staff brings your project from large master rolls down to narrow reels or sheets with ease.  Sheeting, die cutting and other unique converting operations are performed at our Hawthorne, NJ facility under our strict ISO production environments.
