Beer Filtration

About 6000 years ago, the Sumerians discovered a cheerful drink, beer, which became popular all over the world. In order to maintain the unity of beer flavor, freshness and quality, the membrane filtration process needs to firmly control microorganisms and organic matters, clarify, and better vision. Hangzhou Dali has more than 20 years of development and manufacturing experience, combined with the laboratory can provide Microbiology and validation services to ensure that the products provided are stable and efficient.   Beer is a kind of low alcohol fermented wine with malt and water as main raw materials and hops (including hops products) fermented by yeast. Note: including non alcohol beer (dealcohol beer). According to the industry development and consumption demand, it is mainly divided into: cooked beer, draft beer and fresh beer.   Cooked beer is pasteurized or instant high temperature sterilized beer.   Draft beer is a kind of beer without pasteurization or instantaneous high temperature sterilization, but using other physical methods to eliminate bacteria and achieve certain biological stability.   Fresh beer is a kind of beer without pasteurization or instantaneous high temperature sterilization, and a certain amount of live yeast is allowed in the finished product to achieve certain biological stability.     Main filter points and filter element application in beer production:   The clarification and filtration in wort preparation process include bag filter, diatomite paperboard filter, etc., and the use points related to filter element filtration: gas filtration, water filtration and beer filtration.     Gas filtration: air particle filtration, carbon dioxide particle filtration, steam particle filtration.   Pre filter element: polypropylene membrane filter material with high pollution capacity, pleated structure, about 5 μ m in liquid   For filtration accuracy, it can reach 0.3 ~ 0.5 μ m in gas.   Sterilization filter: PTFE monolayer / double-layer membrane or 100% filtration of all kinds of bacteria and bacteriophages, which can be repeatedly online steam sterilization. The absolute filtration precision of 0.2 μ m in liquid and 0.01 μ m in gas can be achieved.   Steam filter: sintered from stainless steel powder, with absolute filtration accuracy of 10 μ m in liquid and 1 μ m in steam.     Water filtration: aseptic water preparation filtration system, which is used for tank farm process water, yeast washing, CIP, bottle washing / wine filling machine cleaning, etc.   System configuration: pre filter PP and other materials, absolute filtration accuracy: 2-5 μ m; sterilization filter PES or nylon, absolute filtration accuracy: 0.45-1 μ M. CIP filtration generally uses PP and other filter materials, with an absolute filtration accuracy of 10 μ M.     Beer filtration: capture filtration, fine filtration and pure draft beer sterilization filtration.   PP filter material is used for the filter element of beer capture filter and fine filter, and the absolute filtration accuracy is 10 μ m and 1.5 μ m, respectively.   Pure draft beer sterilization and filtration equipment is specially used for sterilization and filtration before filling, so as to remove spoilage bacteria and other harmful microorganisms in beer and ensure the biological stability of beer. The pre filtration material is generally PP, the absolute filtration precision is generally 0.5-1 μ m, the sterilization filtration is nylon or PES membrane, and the absolute filtration precision (LRV > 10 ?) of 0.45 μ m is used. The integrity of filter element is 100% before delivery.     Note: for detailed technical solutions, please contact your sales engineer.

Wine Filtration

The taste of wine is an organic combination of technology and art. Filtration technology plays a vital role, such as particles, crystals, residues, organic matter, bacteria and yeast microorganisms, etc., which always affect the body, but with a delicate balance, the whole process control is the best solution. Many years of development and manufacturing experience combined with laboratory verification and analysis services, we bring together every solution and product, and apply it to the brewing process, so that customers can get full-bodied wine with pure taste and unique style.   Ripe grape string is the main raw material of winemaking, good wine, the craft is equally important. The brewing process represents as much potential quality as possible in the raw material, and is economical and perfect in the wine. Wine features: 1. SO2 plays an anti-oxidation and fresh-keeping role from picking, pressing, fermentation, ripening to bottling. SO2 (usually potassium metabisulfite K2S2O5) is also added to wine as a protective agent and antioxidant, which can kill bacteria while protecting the natural fruit properties of the wine and preventing aging. 2. Tartaric Acid, whose scientific name is 2, 3-dihydroxysuccinic Acid, is derived from grape fruits. Its physical properties make it easy to crystallize at low temperatures and produce insoluble calcium salts, etc.   Filtration applications in wine production 1. Clarification and filtration: generally, diatomite filter and paperboard are used for filtration, or the tangential flow filtration system of hollow fiber is adopted. 2. Remove tartarate crystal (potassium tartarate, calcium tartarate) and other particles, PP melt spray or fold filter core, 2-3 m nominal accuracy, 10 m absolute accuracy. 3. Wine recovery: solid-liquid separation system, such as plate and frame filter press, is adopted. 4.

Fruit Wine Filtration

Good fruit wine, wine should be clear, transparent, no sediment and suspended matter, give a person a sense of clarity, color is also the juice of the special pigment and aroma. The membrane filtration process is carried out at room temperature, and the pure physical method is used for filtration. There is no qualitative change in the separation process, and bacteria, impurities, extracts and harmful substances can be removed from the process. The fine degree of filtration determines the quality of the liquor. Hangzhou Dali helps customers to find the most suitable filtration solution through verification and other tests conducted by its laboratories. Fruit wine is fermented by yeast into alcohol with the sugar of the fruit itself. It has pure, elegant, pleasant, harmonious aroma and wine. It is sweet and sour and full bodied.There are many kinds of fruits in Our country, many fruits can brew fruit wine, especially plums, apples, kiwifruit, bayberries and other varieties in the wine brewing accounted for a larger proportion. At present, commercial production of a wide variety of wine, according to brewing methods and product characteristics, divided into fermentation wine, distilled wine, prepared wine, sparkling wine.Generally, certain amount of SO2 and pectinase powder should be added in time when apple and other fruit juices enter the fermentation tank, and separation should be carried out before fermentation occurs, so as to reduce the content of impurities in fruit juice to the minimum level, which can avoid the influence of impurities on the taste quality of fruit juice. Major filtering applications in wine making:1.
