Self Cleaning Filters for Distilled Industry

Jun. 12, 2024

As a beverage producer, you understand the importance of filtration in ensuring the quality and consistency of your distilled spirits. With so many options available, selecting the right filtration equipment and media can be a challenging task. 

In this blog, we'll delve into the world of distilled filtration, exploring the unique considerations for different types of spirits and introducing you to various filtration methods and media that can elevate your product.

Filtration is a crucial step in producing distilled spirits, as it helps remove impurities and contaminants that can affect the final product's flavor, color, and overall quality. However, distilled spirits present unique challenges due to their high alcohol content and diverse characteristics.

Key Considerations for Distilled Filtration

When it comes to distilled spirits, there are several key considerations to keep in mind:

1. Barrel-Aged Spirits: Removing large suspended solids like barrel char and fatty acids is crucial for achieving a smooth, refined flavor.

2. Neutral, Colorless Spirits: Ensuring visual brightness and neutral color and aroma is essential for maintaining the product's integrity.

3. Fruit-Based Spirits: Removing colloidal material like pectin is vital for achieving a clear, consistent product.

4. Spirits with Post-Distillation Additions: Filtration is crucial for maintaining stability and consistency, even after additions are made.

Filtration Methods for Distilled Industry

Choosing the right filtration method and media is crucial for achieving the desired quality and consistency. Here are some popular options:

  1. Bag Filters

A surface filtration step that catches larger particles, such as barrel char or fruit and spice particles, to lighten the load before more substantial depth filtration. Bag filters have low depth capacity and practically no adsorption capabilities.

2. Wege Wire Filter Cartridges:

A popular method for surface and depth filtration, offering a more consistent filtrate quality compared to bag filters. The closed format of the cartridge housing provides a safer, more sanitary, and fume-free environment.

Batch Size: Larger batches require more substantial filtration capabilities to maintain consistency.

Colloidal Load: Increased colloidal load requires more advanced filtration capabilities to remove impurities.

Surface, Depth, and Adsorption Capabilities: A balanced filtration system should have a combination of surface, depth, and adsorption capabilities to remove impurities effectively.
