Winery Equipment Testimonial

Ryan and I worked together at Justin Winery for five years and have known each other for ten. While at Justin, Ryan was passionately interested in the wine making process, could fix about anything and was totally dedicated to making the winery a success. He has taken that dedication to Vintner Vault and became a major player in the winery supply business in just a few years. Jeff Branco, former VP and Winemaker Justin Winery

40cm x 40cm Filter Pads
  • Filter sheets (pads) are the most efficient and most economical means. They are between 1/8 to 3/16” – 3 to 4 mm – thick and consist of a blend of refined cellulose fibers, powdery filter aids, e.g. diatomaceous earth and/or perlite. As a general rule: the more filter aids the better the retention. An inert resin is added to provide wet strength; and – depending on the type of resin – also to create a positive charge or “zeta potential”. This positive charge enhances the retention of small negatively charged particles / micro-organism.
  • The typical depth filter sheet has a dirt holding capacity of about 4 Liters (1 US gal) for a square meter (abt. 11 square feet) of filter area. In process filtration, depth filter sheets are inserted into plate to plate filters (plate filters) which allow the formation of large surface areas within a relatively small footprint. 
  • Depth filters reach their end of service life when their inner matrix is loaded with “dirt” particles. Indicators are the rise of the differential pressure between inlet (=dirt) and outlet (=filtrate) side; and the decreased flow rate. 
  • The efficiency of a depth filter is exhausted once the differential has reached certain key points: abt. 1.5 bar (22 psi) for sterilizing grades; 2.5 - 3 bar (45 psi) for clarifying grades. In certain applications a regeneration is possible.
  • Comes in packages of 25.
