Vinpac needed 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.
