Established in 1975, Vinpac is a fully integrated packaging company, providing winemaking, bottling, laboratory, and warehouse services to wineries across Australia. It is Australia’s largest contract bottler, with two sites in operation: at McLaren Vale, and Angaston in the Barossa Valley. BHF Technologies has been supplying filtration products and services to Vinpac Angaston since 2011, and Vinpac McLaren Vale since 2010.
Vinpac recently asked our engineers to develop a system for the sterile filtration of customer wines, that would accommodate a significant increase in production at Angaston, with the capability to filter in excess of 9000 litres per hour.
The upgraded filtration skid included two lenticular housings containing BECO lenticular modules, followed by two sanitary housings containing 0.65µm pre-filters and the final 0.45µm membranes. The housings were arranged linearly to meet footprint limitations, though the lenticular housings were plumbed in parallel to facilitate the required flow rate. Three-stack lenticular housings were chosen, to minimise handling and enable reuse of the existing gantry in line with occupational health and safety requirements. The design allows for easy cleaning, integrity testing, and filter changeout.
The need for humidity control is present in a growing number of applications and processes, particularly with Australia’s varying weather conditions. The key requirement for industrial humidity control systems is clean water to ensure micro stability, minimal corrosion, and to avoid blocking the very fine spray nozzles used to create a mist.
Fibremakers is part of Godfrey Hirst Carpets, Australasia’s largest carpet manufacturer, and specialise in the manufacture of carpet fibres. Humidity control is critical to their processes to ensure the fibres are wound correctly and aren’t fraying. BHF Technologies worked closely with Fibremakers to develop a solution for their water requirements for their new humidity control units.
A reverse osmosis system was configured to Fibremakers’ needs for flow rate, conductivity specification, pre-filtration, control settings, and chemical cleaning and dosing ability. Additional UV disinfection units were supplied to add another level of protection against microorganisms in the water. The skid-mounted system was delivered to the site and simply tied in to the appropriate pipework, drains, electrical, and signal wiring. Commissioning was completed by BHF Technologies internal engineers, and the system is being serviced by our specialist service technicians.
