The Port Washington-based filtration maker Pall Corp. this week said it has created an advanced product that it says is "a major advance in nuclear power plant filtration" and can improve safety for workers at nuclear plants.

Pall, in a Thursday news release, said "the new Ultipor GF Fine filter is the only disposable filter in the world to be rated at 0.05 microns at 99.98 percent efficiency and that can be used for all key nuclear steam supply system applications."

The filter can be used for reactor coolant letdown, seal water injection, fuel pool and radioactive waste, Pall said.

The filters "reduce maintenance costs and enhance the service life of primary components as well as a plant operator’s ability to control worker exposure," Pall said.
