In the food and beverage industry, filtration units are often utilized for cleaning and filtering liquids. Depending on the product requirements, there are several choices of filtration membranes, which include micro-, ultra-, or nano-filtration. During the filtration process, tiny particles may deposit on the membrane surface. These particles need to be gradually removed to minimize polarization. Pumps are used for this job as they can generate cross flow velocity to aid removal. Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we carry a comprehensive range of industrial pumps for filtration units.

About The Filtration Units Industry

Food processing and beverage manufacturing entail complicated processes with a wide range of filtration applications. Winemaking, brewing, soft drink production, and bottled water production requires various forms of filtration. For example, each wine has unique characteristics, and the production team needs to customize each blending and bottling filtration solution via the use of multiple filter media options.

Filtration units are designed to create and maintain great tasting result from natural processes, which involve the creation of stout, porter, ale, and lager. In addition, soft drink production often features the use of container wash water and storage tanks. Filters are needed in these cases to protect the drink ingredients. If process gases are used in packaging, they are also filtered.

All in all, filtration is vital to preserving flavor and extending shelf life. Whether aseptically packaged or bottled, filtration units are needed to prevent contamination by particulates or bacteria.

Common Applications for the Filtration Units Industry

  • Vacuum pumps for exhaust filters and other heavy duty applications
  • Vacuum pumps to facilitate the removal of flavor-killing particulates and spoilage organisms
  • Vacuum pumps to ensure high operational efficiency in filtration systems
  • Vacuum pumps to aid the removal of thermo-acidophilic bacterial spores, molds, and yeast
  • … and more!
