Seitz® HS Series Depth Filter Sheets

Seitz HS series depth filter sheets were developed to meet the production needs and requirements of the beer industry.

Description

From the selection and quality control of raw materials to application of the latest production technologies, the HS filter sheets meet the highest quality standards. The high stability of HS sheets enables long production runs of aqueous and higher viscous fluids at low and high temperatures.

HS filter sheets are available in multiple grades suitable for microbial reduction and applications requiring fine, clarifying and coarse filtration.

These figures have been determined in accordance with in-house test methods and the methods of the Technical /Analytical Work Group within the European Depth Filtration Association.
2 The permeability was measured under test conditions with clean water at 20 °C (68 °F) and a Δp of 1 bar (14.5 psi).

Regeneration

HS series filter sheets may be rinsed with clean water (in the forward or reverse3 direction) to increase throughput and to optimize economic efficiency. Optimal regeneration of filter sheets installed in a plate and frame filter may be achieved with serial rinses of warm water followed by hot water. An example protocol is shown below.

  • Rinse with warm water (60 °C / 140 °F) for 15 minutes
  • Rinse with hot water (70 – 80 °C / 158 – 176 °F) for 8 – 10 minutes

The rinse flow rate should be equivalent to the filtration flow rate with a back pressure of up to 0.5 bar (7.2 psi).

3 When rinsing in the reverse flow direction it is critical to control particulate and microbial levels in the rinse water so that the filtrate side of the sheet is not contaminated. Water used for reverse flow flushes should be particle-free, and if the filter will not be sterilized prior to re-use the water should be free of microbes. Backwashing should be in a diagonal direction from outlet to inlet in a plate and frame filter.

Filtration Guidelines5

As the filtrate quality can be impacted by the filtration flow rate, the following table provides guidelines for flux rate.

 
Application Flow Velocity
L/m2/h
(gal/ft2/h)
Maximum Differential Pressure bar (psi)
Beer clarification 150-300 (3.7-7.4) 2.5 (36.3)
Microbial reduction in beer 100-200 (2.5-4.9) 1.5 (21.8)
