Mobile 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:
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.
Parker’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.
