World Class Filtration Solutions
Vinofil™ membrane cartridges have been specifically designed, by Porvair Filtration Group for wine and beer filtration, as a final filter for cold biological stabilisation. Vinofil™ cartridges utilise a double layer of naturally hydrophilic polyethersulphone (PES) membrane with a mirrored asymmetric pore structure, which provides graded filtration throughout its depth, resulting in higher throughputs and long service life. When combined with quality all-polypropylene components and high integrity manufacturing techniques, the Vinofil™ filter cartridge is ideally suited to the most demanding process conditions.
Vinofil™ cartridges exploit the narrow pore size distribution and high void volume of the media to provide a choice of cartridges capable of meeting the requirements of most applications. Careful media selection ensures that Vinofil™ cartridges are also very suited to critical particle control down to 0.2 micron ratings. Vinofil™ cartridges offer high flux rates and low differential pressures, a feature common to polyethersulphone membranes.
Vinofil™ cartridges benefit from the low binding characteristics of polyethersulphone membranes. They are also highly resistant to integrity failure caused by steam sterilisation and have excellent compatibility with CIP sterilising agents.
As a consequence Vinofil™ cartridges provide a combination of features and benefits not hitherto available from cartridges based on PVDF, nylon, mixed esters of cellulose or polysulphone membranes. They are suitable for applications ranging from sterile filtration, stabilisation and the clarification of a wide range of beverages.
