Monomer Filtration Critical for Soft Contact Lens Production
4 March 2019
Amazon Filters reports on how implementation of its SupaPore PCG capsule filters at one of the world’s leading manufacturers of soft contact lenses, has improved lead times and security of supply thereby reducing potential risks to the company's monomer production.
Monomer production is a critical part of the contact lens manufacturing process. To ensure their monomer was free of any impurities before being used in the lens manufacturing process, the company employed pleated polypropylene capsule filters, rated at 1.2µm, 2.5µm and 5µm.
Following an extensive technical review of the monomer manufacturing process, Amazon Filters offered a high performance SupaPore PCG capsule filter to replace the filters the company had traditionally used. The SupaPore PCG capsule filters were subjected to a rigorous validation process which involved testing to demonstrate equivalent filtration performance to the previous capsules and to ensure the change did not impact on the filtration time which is critical for this batch process.
In addition to improved lead times and security of supply, switching to Amazon Filter SupaPore PCG capsule filters has generated cost savings and improved technical support for the soft contact lens manufacturer.
