Oenoflow™ FIT System

The Oenoflow FIT System is a new modular crossflow system specifically designed for wine clarification and polish filtration at small wineries. Components or “modules” can be coupled together like puzzle pieces to configure systems that FIT the specific working needs of each winery

Oenoflow FIT Components

The base system, constructed of stainless steel employs two high flow, high area hollow fiber microfiltration membranes. The fully automated unit has “Cycle” programming so that systems can be operated and cleaned with minimal operator interaction. To tailor the system to specific winery conditions, additional modular building blocks can be added to the base system.

 
Optional Component Function Benefit
Chemical dosing Automatic dosing of chemicals for cleaning and storage
  • Safe and easier clean-in-place operations
  • No chemical handling
T1 On-board tank for concentration of the retentate solids (vs. external bleed)
  • Lower wine losses
  • No stirring of settled solids
  • Operation more independent of winery conditions
T2 On-board filtrate tank with backflush capability
  • Operation more independent of winery conditions (filtrate tank distance, head pressure)
  • Improved average filtration rate
Extension Manifold Additional 2 membrane modules
  • Easy, compact and low cost way to double filtration capacity
  • Increases flexibility
 

Oenoflow FIT Membranes

The Oenoflow FIT microfiltration modules incorporate Pall's proven symmetric hollow fiber membranes. The large diameter high flow modules with 21.5 square meters of filter area have twice the filter area of typical competitive hollow fiber modules. The module components include:

 
Membrane PVDF
Potting Epoxy resin
Sleeve Polypropylene
Housing Transparent polysulfone
Seals Ethylene propylene copolymer
 

Cost Saving Benefits

By replacing diatomaceous earth (kieselguhr) and sheet filters with the Oenoflow FIT crossflow microfiltration system, wineries can benefit by eliminating the use and disposal of filter aids, reducing wine losses and increasing filtration consistency. However, with a new modular construction, the Oenoflow FIT provides small and growing wineries with additional benefits:

Economical:

  • Systems can be configured to meet the available budget

Flexible:

  • Components can be combined to satisfy multiple winery applications
  • Components can be added at a later date for system upgrade

Expandable:

  • Modules can be added at a later date to accommodate future winery expansion

Compliance

The Oenoflow FIT systems are manufactured in accordance with European Pressure Directives and each system is supplied with a CE mark.

Various Oenoflow modules have been qualified for compliance to specific regulatory standards for products coming into contact with foodstuffs. Please contact Pall for details.
