This used Palltronic compact star 1 unit was acquired from an apothecary in The Netherlands. The unit was bought in working condition. Basic functionality has been tested on our site. No actual pressure test was performed.
Integrity testing with the Palltronic Compact Star device is reliable, cost-effective, and operator-friendly. The unit is designed to perform a Pressure Hold Test, a non-destructive method that measures pressure decay over a period of time. The test involves automatically pressurizing the filter housing at a predetermined level, allowing the pressure to stabilize. The unit then takes the test measurement and depressurizes the assembly through the vent valve. Fully automated, the Palltronic Compact Star device eliminates the variability of test results that can occur with manual systems. It provides a simple, fast, and objective check of filter integrity. An automated integrity test, whether forward flow or pressure hold, is internationally acknowledged as a genuinely objective and non-destructive method for determining if a filter meets microbial removal specifications and is correctly installed. Test results provide a clear and accurate indication of a filter’s integrity prior to its use.
The small, lightweight, portable, and battery-operated unit is equipped with many convenient features. Test programs can be recalled from memory or created by entering data using the navigation button. Test progress and results, with an explicit ‘Pass’ or ‘Fail’ indication, are displayed, so all information is available at a glance. The results are automatically saved in the memory, and a printout can be generated quickly and easily for analysis and process documentation.
