Turnkey supply of an Automated Filtration System (AFS) integrated with existing filler and CIP
Operator capability variations
Repetitive tedious operations
Site presence required
BHF was commissioned to design and fabricate a fully-customised automated filtration system (AFS). This automated system provided immediate and manifold benefits to Torresan Estate, the most important of which was the return of staff time to family members.
Bespoke design according to customer requirements
High flow rate to match the new filler
Integration with the new filler and existing CIP systems
Smart phone remote operation
Wine temperature adjustment capability
Duty/standby configuration of first stage filtration housings for continuous production, even in the event of a primary filter blockage
Automated clean, sanitise and integrity test programmes
Torresan Estate is very happy with the BHF AFS. It has fulfilled all design elements, increasing production capacity with process security, and most importantly has liberated substantial staff time through automation and remote access capacity. Torresan Estate has already observed lower filtration costs and reduced wine losses, and have made some changes to the programming to fine tune the system to their specific operator requirements. In 2019 BHF and Torresan Estate won a Wine Industry Suppliers Association Wine Impact Award in the packaging category for the AFS.
