Ensuring Quality and Uptime in Mobile Wine Bottling

 Ensuring Quality and Uptime in Mobile Wine Bottling - mobile wine bottling - Parker Bioscience DivisionMobile bottlers face varying conditions at each wine producer’s facility. At every step of the filtration process, they need to anticipate differences in wine chemistry, storage methods, and pre-processing factors that have a direct impact on wine quality. Without reliable products and an effective solution in place, the mobile bottler can experience: 

  • Premature fouling of final membrane filters
  • Re-sanitization downtime
  • Increased costs for filter replacement
  • Production delays

Mobile wine bottler improves efficiency, maximizes production | case study
 

The problem

A Northern California mobile wine bottler with over 40 years in the industry was looking to improve efficiency, maximize production time and deliver optimal product quality to their winery clients through a more streamlined filtration process. They turned to Parker because of the company’s deep experience in food and beverage filtration.


The solution

 Ensuring Quality and Uptime in Mobile Wine Bottling - Parker Depth Filters - C-Series - Parker Bioscience DivisionParker’s Depth-Clear lenticular filter and housing served as the first line of defense in protecting final filters prior to bottling. Using Depth-Clear 0.3 micron nominal nine cell (C9) lenticular filter, the mobile bottler no longer observed unexpected downtime due to mid-run final membrane filter fouling. As a result, the overall filter consumable costs were also reduced.

By partnering with Parker, the mobile bottler was able to efficiently package client product with the added assurance of delivering quality standards that meet winemaker demands.  

Depth-Clear lenticular filters, constructed of specially formulated cellulose media and inorganic filter aids, provide reliable particle retention and enhanced throughput for superior performance in critical applications. The filter media utilizes mechanical and electrokinetic adsorptive capture mechanisms to remove particles, microorganisms, and colloids from critical process streams. The lenticular format allows the filtration process to occur within a totally enclosed environment. This eliminates the potential for atmospheric contamination and product loss through leakage.

Features and benefits:

  • High surface area lenticular filters deliver superior filtration performance and long on-stream life cycles.
  • Proprietary depth media formulations offer exceptional particle retention via mechanical and electrokinetic capture.
  • Advanced manufacturing controls results in uniform filtration media and consistent lot-to-lot performance.
  • Design allows for easy handling and installation for quick changeouts.
  • Filter efficiency translates to smaller space requirements for housings.
  • All materials conform to FDA guidelines.
  • Biosafety – meets the requirements of USP-XXII, Class VI plastics at 121˚C.


Results

Parker's recommended filtration solution resulted in:

  • Reduced downtime
  • Eliminated premature fouling
  • Delivered consistent quality
  • Decreased filtration costs
  • Improved process efficiency
