Oenopure™ Filter Cartridges For Wine Final Filtration

Oenopure filter cartridges are developed specifically for cold microbial stabilization of wine.

The Oenopure cartridge is Pall Corporation's most advanced solution for membrane filtration of wine. The cartridge is constructed from a highly inert media ensuring that the level of organoleptic and colloidal interference is negligible. The polyethersulfone membrane is configured in a “laid over” pleat configuration for increased mechanical strength, filter area and exposure to repeated hot water and steam sanitization cycles for longer service life.

The cartridges are available in single open ended (SOE) configurations to fit in sanitary housings to ensure effective microbial removal and assembly integrity.

This filter is integrity testable. An in-situ and non-destructive integrity test can provide assurance of filter performance within minutes. Integrity tests help manufacturers avoid costly issues such as product contamination, product losses, reprocessing and production delays, as well as satisfying auditor requirements.

Food Contact Compliance

  • Food contact compliant filters are available. Please consult the Declarations of Compliance for applicable part numbers at the links below.
  • Please refer to the Pall website for a Declaration of Compliance to specific National Legislation and/or Regional Regulatory requirements for food contact use.


Maximum Allowable Differential Pressure

The maximum allowable differential pressure in the forward flow direction for Oenopure filters is shown in the table below.
 
Temperature Max. Differential Pressure3
Up to 40 °C (104 °F) 5.5 bard (80 psid)
Up to 80 °C (176 °F) 4 bard (60 psid)
 
3 In fully compatible fluids which do not chemically attack, soften or adversely affect the filter in any way


Sterilization and Sanitization

Oenopure filters can be repeatedly steam sterilized or autoclaved in situ, or they can be sanitized with hot water or chemicals.
 
Media Temperature Cumulative Time4
Steam5 125 °C (257 °F) 30 hours
Hot water 90 °C (194 °F) 80 hours
Peracetic acid (PAA) based sanitizer (320 ppm total peroxides) 20 °C (65 °F 1000 hours
 
4 Measured under laboratory test conditions. The actual cumulative time depends on the process conditions.
5 The maximum allowable pressure drop (forward) during steam steaming at 125 °C (257 °F) is 0.3 bard (4 psid).


Pressure Drop vs. Liquid Flow Rate6

6 Typical initial clean media differential (DP) per 254 mm (10") element for water at 20 °C(68°F); viscosity 1 centipoise. For 505 mm, 762 mm and 1016 mm configurations divide the differential pressure by 2, 3 and 4 respectively.
