Our Lo-Cross-Flo mobile microfiltration system uses a low cross flow filtration mode, where tangential wine flow across the membrane is 2-4 times lower than equivalent systems on the market today.
Utilizing a considerably larger membrane surface area to compensate for any loss in flow rate we are able to keep TMP (trans-membrane pressure) low. Our systems are equipped with scavenger systems, whereby losses are kept to a minimum. As usual, by applying our “wine first” approach we are able to filter wine far gentler than equivalent systems.
- One step, sterile filtration
- No heat increase in process means less oxidation
- Less handling of your wine
- Your wine passes through bottling line filter cartridges
