The smart filter is state of the art technology that opens up the possibility to transform a normal filter into an intelligent one. Data can be stored on the filter by the manufacturer, and/or updated during filter operation through a ‘read – write memory’. Infinite application possibilities come within reach using the smart filter technology.

Infinite application possibilities

Knowing that the smart filter technology lets you store and retrieve data that you consider critical to your business or service, unlimited application possibilities come to mind.

Using the patented read-write option in laboratory filter equipment supports accuracy of test results. Application in medical filter equipment ensures timely replacement of contaminated filters. Implementing it in food processing to determine filter operational circumstances helps to comply with legislation. In extraction or integrity testing apparatus it can be used to ensure appropriate operating conditions.

In essence, any industry or service that manufactures or uses filtration, extraction or separation machinery can benefit from the smart filter technology, e.g. in:

  • Biopharmacy
  • Biotechnology
  • Medical laboratories
  • Surgery
  • Healthcare
  • Extraction processes
  • Food processing and bottling, etc.

Reading our cases may give you an even better understanding of what advantages of TackSmart’s patented filter technology can be.

From identification to interactive solutions

The smart filter technology lets filter manufacturers transform a regular filter into an intelligent device. The smart filter concept opens up the possibility to store, read out and update filter data.

The patented technology may translate into simply storing the production date onto the filter.  This may prove to be useful for warranty purposes. But much more advanced applications are within reach. RFID lets you use the technology to its full read-write potential, e.g.:

Real time registration of process data during the filtration process

  • Date and time
  • Temperature
  • Pressure drop
  • Operating hours
  • Pollution levels
  • Particle sizes

Registration of job related information

  • Serial number of the filter in the filter machine
  • Fluid and liquid contamination that has to be filtered or separated
  • Identification of the operator
  • Identification of the patient, human, animal, etc.
  • Identification of a job or batch number

Personalization of the filter

  • Manufacturer code
  • Waste handling code
  • Filter type code
  • Optimum operation parameters
  • Maximum allowable filter condition data (maximum temperature, pressure drop, operating hours, etc.)
