Description

Developed from traditional depth filtration technology, SUPRApak modules efficiently combine the filtration mechanisms of surface filtration, depth filtration and adsorption. Highly unique to their design is an entirely new flow configuration, based on the “edge flow” principle.

 

Filter sheet material is wrapped around a central, permeable core. Feed and filtrate channels provide a fluid flow path resulting in maximum utilization of the sheet material, to provide highly efficient contaminant removal and a cost-effective closed system alternative to flat sheet filtration.

 

SH series SUPRApak modules are constructed from Seitz® IR Series filter sheets which undergo a proprietary treatment that results in extremely low levels of extractable ions. This makes them ideal for spirits applications since ions like calcium and magnesium can result in precipitation and haze formation.

Features Benefits

Flow configuration based on "edge flow" principle

  • Higher throughput compared to classical sheet filtration1
  • Increased adsorption capability and excellent filtrate quality
Closed filtration system
  • Increased process safety and product quality; no drip losses; reduction in volatile organic compounds
Drainable, low hold-up volume assembly
  • Higher product yield; lower cleaning costs
Constructed from ion reduced filter sheets (calcium, iron, magnesium and aluminium)
  • Reduced risk of precipitation in distilled spirits
High filtration capacity in compact design
  • Small footprint
Simple, quick installation and servicing
  • Reduced labor and maintenance costs
1 Depending on application and product selection

 

Quality

  • Filter sheets produced in a controlled environment
  • Manufactured according to ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System

Operating Guidelines

Field experience shows that maximum achievable differential pressures vary with the application and product selection. They are determined by monitoring filtrate quality and are influenced by several factors. Please contact Pall for details and refer to SUPRApak module instructions for use.

 

Rinsing

The use of ion-reduced water is highly recommended for the reconstitution of distillates to final strength.

To prevent dilution upon installation, a water rinse is not typical for SUPRApak modules used in the spirits industry. Product circulation for 10 to 15 minutes back to the feed tank helps to distribute ions extracted at the beginning of filtration to the entire batch reducing the overall risk of precipitation.
