A Fresh Approach to Microfiltration
The Imperium Microbial Stabilization (MSB) Filter is designed for the final filtration of wine, cider, beer and alcohol free beverages. As the final control step prior to packaging, the Imperium MSB Filter removes spoilage and indicator organisms which can adversely affect taste and quality, providing a fresh product with excellent shelf-life.
Up to 30% reduction in operating costs
Reduced risk of product contamination
Complete process flexibility

The Imperium MSB Filter has been qualified for retention against spoilage and indicator organisms which are directly relevant to the Food & Beverage market.
LRV = logarithmic reduction value
Protecting Taste and Quality with a Fresh Approach to Microfiltration
Patent pending design with 10 m2 newly developed Supor® Polyethersulfone (PES) membrane and an 88% reduction in material junction points, together with the Imperium integrity test approach and modular housing configuration, result in up to 30% reduction in operating costs, reduced risk of product contamination and complete process flexibility.
Imperium Microbial Stabilization Filter
New geometry designed specifically for the Food & Beverage industry
10 m2 Effective Filtration Area (EFA) with Laid Over Long Pleat technology
Replace up to 6 x 30" standard filter cartridges with just 1 x Imperium filter
High throughput newly developed Supor PES membrane
Reduced risk of false-pass integrity test results
Less chance of filter integrity failure
Retention to market specific microorganisms
Compliant to key food contact legislation
Almost 3 x quicker filter changeover
Integrity testable for assurance of filter performance
Watch our animation to learn how the robust Imperium MSB Filter design reduces the risk of filter integrity failure.
The Imperium Tri-Cam interface ensures filter change-out is simple, quick and error proof, eliminating the potential for downtime or contamination as a result of filter miss-installation. Filter change-out can be completed almost 3x quicker when compared to a standard filter cartridge installation, requiring only 1 operator.

Depending on the quality of pre-filtration and fluid filterability, Pall SLS Global Technical Support can recommend optimal sizing specific to your process.
28 HL / hr
12 USG / min
28 HL / Hour (12 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 226 hL / hour (99 USG / Min).
Wine & Cider
68 HL / hr
30 USG / min
68 HL / Hour (30 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 542 hL / hour (239 USG / Min).
0.28 m3 / min
75 USG / min
0.28 m3 / Min (75 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 2.26 m3 / Min (598 USG / Min).

Imperium Filter Housing
The Imperium Filter Housing is specifically designed to house Imperium Filter Cartridges in high flow liquid filtration applications, where optimal fluid quality through sanitary design is required
Exclusively designed for Imperium filter cartridges
Patent pending Tri-Cam filter-housing interface
Housing certified to 3-A 10-04
316L stainless steel wetted parts construction, electropolished with high quality welds
Modular, parallel housing configuration
ASME VIII Div 1 approved V-Band Housing Clamp
Equipped with standard accessories
Optimal performance through the use of Imperium Filter Cartridges
Filter changeover is simple, error proof and 3x quicker than standard cartridges and housings
Fluid quality, full drainability and reduced risk of contamination through hygienic design
Corrosion resistance, durability and full cleanability
Continuous operation, minimal downtime and production interruptions.
Simple, low cost capacity expansion
Ease of a V-Band combined with the assurance of ASME certification
Quick and simple integration into your process
The modular Imperium housing configuration allows parallel or duplex operation. This brings complete process flexibility and the potential for continuous operation during cleaning, sanitization, maintenance or troubleshooting. It is suitable for a wide range of process flow rates and its design enables simple, low cost future expansion, as your capacity increases in line with your success.
Imperium installations can be used or easily expanded to meet a range of process flow rates.
For multi-size installations, optional manifolds can be provided, allowing in between 1 and 8 housings to be installed in parallel as standard.
For expansion of capacity, simply add the required number of housings with a new manifold or manifold extension kit.
Cartridges produced in a controlled environment
Manufactured under a Quality Management System certified to ISO9001:2008
Imperium housings are supplied with standard accessories, which include:
- Inlet and outlet butterfly valves
- Upstream and downstream hosetail drains
- Upstream and downstream pressure gauges
- Upstream Stäubli connection
- Adjustable legs
