Final Filtration | Bacteria Reduction/Removal | Beer Filtration | Beverage Processing | How-To | Problem Solving
The alcohol, low oxygen content, relatively low pH, hops extracts (alpha-acids) and dissolved carbon dioxide in beer inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria. That is why beer has been a safe drinking alternative for so many centuries. However, some microorganisms can survive and even thrive in beer and spoil the flavor and aroma of any good brew.
Filter System Design | How-To | Problem Solving
DEVELOPMENT, SCALE-UP, AND VALIDATION OF PHARMACEUTICAL FILTRATION PROCESSES Our Technical Service Team performs application testing for a wide variety of fluids from water to complex chemical solutions. No matter what industry the customer is part of, we carefully document our test results and make recommendations based on those results. We get it right the first time. For pharmaceutical applications, whether removing particles from ingredients entering the plant or sterilizing parenteral products, the testing, and documentation we routinely create help show the consistent performance required for the validation of the process.
How-To | Integrity Testing | Pressure Decay Test
While filter ratings are a simpler integrity test for less critical applications is a Pressure Decay Test. This requires the same air (or nitrogen) source and an accurate pressure gauge but does not require a mass flow meter. This type of test can be performed before and after use and is sensitive enough to detect very small leaks.
How-To | Reduce Operating Costs | Improve Filter Performance
We hear this question regularly, and although some may quip “Buy cheaper filters” we contend that installing the RIGHT filter is the key to doing both simultaneously.
