Beer Production Process Steps - Why use our filtration consumables?

From large scale to micro breweries, the aim is the same: a pure beverage that retains its distinctive characteristics of taste. Our product range impacts on the brewing process at several key stages:

Hard Seltzer Production Process Steps - Why use our Filtration Consumables?

From low-risk new product introduction to higher volume production, selection of the right technology is important to improve the shelf life and maintain the taste profile of your hard seltzer. Our product range covers filtration products for clarification, flavor preservation, microbial stabilization and filter integrity testing.

Applications

Filtration of water in the brew house: good beer needs lots of pure water. Our Sartopure® filters improve clarification and deliver precise particle retention.

  • Benefit from several polypropylene filtration layers
  • Have finer, less bonded fibers and provide higher porosity
  • Have unequaled filtration capacity
  • Reduce particles that clog water
  • Improve clarification
  • Deliver more precise particle retention
  • Protect the membrane cartridges and ensure the longer life of the final filters

Jumbo Star Sartopure® PP filters with pleated surfaces

Jumbo Star Sartopure® PP2 5 μm has proved an excellent filtration system for beer after the conditioning phase, maximizing production yield, whilst reducing the beer maturation process from 14 to 7 days, ensuring the same quality standard of turbidity and yeast concentration.

Filtration using Sartopure® filters further enhances clarification. Sartopure® PP3 pre-filters are the ideal choice for particle retention, clarification and protection of final membrane in all applications. The Sartopure® PP3 series provides: 

  • Highest robustness in pre-filtration applications based on the unique retention performance of the fleece materials.

  • Very low adsorption assuring the high respect of your beer aroma and taste.

Sartopure® PP Particle Reduction Filter Elements for F&B Applications

Sartopure® PP3 filter elements are high performance polypropylene fleece based pre-filters that improve your product quality. Advanced fleece materials and composition not only extend service life of your downstream membrane but also reduce filter consumption in total.

Whether using fine or trap filters we recommend Sartopure® filters at this stage. According to the filtration purpose, Aquasart®, Sartopure® PP and Sartocool® filters can be used. The latter hugely increases productivity and reduces costs. Check the filtration system through an integrity test after sterilization of the filter cartridges and before the sterile filtration of water, beer.

  • Benefit from membrane filters that achieve the highest microbiological standards
  • All cartridges fulfil FDA requirements
  • Have excellent flow rates and protect the following filtration steps
  • High flow rates reduce operation costs
  • Are resistant to chemical cleaning procedures
  • Have the mechanical stability withstanding the high mechanical and thermal stress
  • The membranes’ low adsorption ensures that beer characteristics like foam stability are not affected
  • Consistent hydrophilicity achieves constant flow rates
  • Enjoy validated, testable reliability

Sartocool® PS Filters

Sartocool® PS enables you to achieve the highest microbiological safety for your beer. And as more and more customers prefer cold filtered beer because of its natural taste, Sartocool® is our contribution to you meeting their requirements at the same time as positively impacting on your bottom line.
