Food & Beverage Filter Products

There are many critical filtration applications in processing packaged foods, bottled water, wine, beer and juices. A wide range of filtration devices with multiple media options and micron ratings are needed to cost-effectively perform the many filtration tasks that produce a safe and flavorful product.

Media

Our polyethersulfone (PES), nylon, hydrophilic polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF), hydrophobic polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) membranes and pleated and melt-blown polypropylene depth and pleated fiberglass media are available in multiple filter formats for all flow ranges in process filtration applications. Disc filters support small scale flows of liquids or gases in test and research laboratories. Small capsule filters are available for low flow applications such as bench scale water systems or small product development systems. Our large disposable capsule filters , cartridge filters and cartridge filter housings are used for larger flow applications ranging from pilot production to full scale operations for bottled water, beer, wine and juice production.
