Spirit of the depth filter

Providing filtration, clarification and purification solutions for distilled spirits producers.

From chill haze removal in brown spirits to activated carbon treatment in white spirits to final filtration in low-alcohol beverages, Pall's technology and expertise can help you reduce costs, improve yield, and maintain complete process control. With unique depth filter technology and innovative high flow filter configurations developed specifically to meet the challenging requirements of spirits filtration, Pall can bring sustainable value to your production process.

Activated Carbon Removal

Many distillers will add activated carbon or use columns packed with activated carbon for adjustment of off-color, odor and taste, post-distillation.

Activated Carbon Treatment

For color, odor, or taste corrections after distillation, dilution and blending, Pall offers filter sheets and SUPRAdisc lenticular modules impregnated with activated carbon. These filters have an extremely high adsorptive capacity with up to 60 percent activated carbon in the filter sheet matrix. The activated carbon is integrated within the filter matrix without the use of binding agents to maintain adsorptive capacity. These products provide simple and hygienic treatment with activated carbon.

Chill Haze Removal/Stabilization

Distilled spirits, especially brown spirits, contain substances like fusel oils, proteins, terpenes, essential oils, polysaccharides, and pectin, as well as fatty acids and their esters that cause turbidity when the distillates are chilled.

Particle Removal

After distillation, spirits can contain particles including crystals or precipitates from blending; abrasion particles from machinery or upstream equipment; iron and copper compounds; activated carbon particles; and cell residues of plant extracts.
