Pleated cartridge filters are capable of concentrating enteroviruses from large volumes (well over 2,000 liters) of tap water. These epoxy-fiberglass filters can be regenerated if they are treated with 0.1 N NaOH or autoclaved to inactivate any contaminating virus. The regenerated filters regained their ability to concentrate viruses from water at high flow rates.
