Water and alcohol filtration technologies for preparation of water-alcohol mixtures (sortings) in order to improve the organoleptic properties

The main applications of Technofilter products and technologies when preparing vodka sortings are the following:

  • alcohol treatment from mechanical impurities when taken from transport tanks or alcohol storages;
  •  improving the organoleptic properties of alcohol using Silver Filtration technology;
  • removal of bitterness from alcohol with the help of sorption filter cartridges EPSF.U;
  • improving the organoleptic properties of water after reverse osmosis systems for vodka sorting preparations - "Shungite filtration".

Brief description

EPNS

Stainless steel metal mesh (grade 12H18N10T)

5, 10, 20, 40, 70

Pleated

The high-performance filter cartridge provides a long service life, the possibility of full regeneration and repeated reuse, operating temperature – up to 90°C in a polypropylene housing, 200°C - in a metal housing. Used for rough preliminary filtration of alcohol, alkali, water.

Filter holder type is selected depending on system performance for a different number and height of the filter cartridges. The recommended flow rate of alcohol is 300-500 m3/h per element 250 mm high.

Improving the organoleptic properties of alcohol using “Silver Filtration” technology - ESPF.UAg 0.4

Purpose - additional treatment of alcohol in order to improve the organoleptic properties.

Features and benefits of "Silver Filtration" technology

Features

Benefits

Stable quality of alcohol

  • Smoothes the unpleasant tastes and smells of alcohol tones.
  • High efficiency of spirit processing using EPSP.UAg0.4 filter cartridges based on silver impregnated coconut coal.

Efficiency and ease of maintenance

  • Fast and easy replacement of filter cartridges.
  • High speed processing of alcohol - 25-30 dal per filter cartridge 250 mm height.

Long service life of the EPSF.UPt filter cartridges ("mini-boxes") at the lowest cost

  • The average life of a mini-column 250 mm high is up to 10 thousand dal.

The technology is based on EPSF.UAg0.4 filter cartridges containing silver impregnated activated carbon from coconut shells.

The technology is patented by Technofilter. (Patent No. 2222586 ""Silver filtration" method of vodka sorting and vodka processing and filter cartridge").

The EPSF.UAg0.4 filter cartridge is a coal "mini-column": coal is poured into the filter cartridge between the outer and inner housings, the liquid flows through the lower window of the outer case, passes up through the coal, and exits through the upper window of the inner case. This design takes into account the ability of coal to change the volume (swell) during operation and excludes the possibility of "channeling" even at high filtration rates.

Cartridges 500, 750 and 1000 mm height are produced on the basis of 250 mm height module by heat-sealing method. The number and height of filter cartridges and the grade of the USF filtration unit are selected depending on the required processing speed.

Removal of bitterness from alcohol by means of  EPSF.U filter cartridges

Technofilter presents a new sorption filter cartridge EPSF.U for removal of bitterness from alcohol and sorting in the production of alcoholic beverages.

Description

The technology is based on EPSF.U filter cartridges based on natural activated carbon.

EPSF.U filter cartridges are produced on the basis of Technofilter technology with the use of natural activated coals ensuring the flow of catalytic reactions. Enhanced catalytic agglomerated activated carbon in EPSF.U filter cartridges has a set of characteristics that explain its exceptional properties, preserved throughout the life of the filter cartridge.

Coals concentrate the reactants through adsorption, thereby facilitating their interaction on the surface of the pores. Although charcoal in filter cartridges is not impregnated with metals or alkali, it has the catalytic functions of such materials. In addition, activated carbon has exceptional adsorption properties.

Cartridges 500, 750 and 1000 mm height are produced on the basis of 250 mm height module by heat-sealing method. 

Main applications

  • sorption purification of alcohol-containing liquids;
  • adjusting tastes and smells, removing ammonia, amines and nitrates from drinks at food industry enterprises.

Recommendations for use

To remove bitterness from alcohol and sorting the recommended filtration rate is 20-40 m3/h per filter cartridge              250 mm height.

The number and height of filter cartridges, the type of filter holder or the filtration plant are selected depending on the required processing speed.

Improving the organoleptic properties of water after reverse osmosis systems for vodka sortings preparations - "Shungite filtration"

Description

The technology is based on EPSF.Sh sorption filter cartridges made of natural mineral sorbent - shungite.

Shungite is a unique natural mineral. It is composed of shungite carbon (30%) and silicates (70%, herewith the quantity of silica is 80%). Shungite carbon has an amorphous structure, it is characterized by high reactivity in thermal processes, high sorption and catalytic properties, electrical conductivity and chemical resistance.

Due to the catalytic properties shungite is able to purify water from various types of organic substances (chlororganics, aromatic hydrocarbons, aliphatic alcohols, etc.) for a long time, destroying organic substances to elemental oxides (CO2, H2O) and precipitating (70-90%) metals from water in the form of insoluble mixtures (carbonates, oxylates, etc.)

Recommendations for use

The recommended water filtration rate for obtaining vodka sortings is from 50 to 150 m3/h per filter cartridge  250 mm height.

The number and height of the filter cartridges, the type of filter holder or the filtration plant are selected depending on the required processing speed.

Main applications

  • For preparation of process water intended for vodka sortings. 
  • For preparation of drinking water. 
  • For filtration and adsorption purification of water from organic and inorganic impurities, electroreduction and electrodeposition of heavy metal ions. 

All filter cartridges of NPP "Technofilter" LLC are manufactured in accordance with the certified quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001: 2000
