Wine Quality is Everything

Technology Compliments Tradition

Learn More About  Wine Filtration  

 

Creating both a wine's uniqueness and ensuring that its taste and intensity of flavor are always preserved is a delicate balancing act. Contaminants such as crystals, treatment residues, organic aggregates, bacteria and yeast can significantly impact a wine's quality. Applying Pall's technologies and expertise in wine filtration to your process will remove risks and ensure peace of mind by enabling more rigorous process control. 

 

As you can see from the diagram below, Pall Corporation provides solutions in many aspects of the winemaking process with both traditional and modern wine filtering system solutions that preserve quality and maintain the lowest operating costs.

Pall Corporation has a very strong presence in the world of winemaking.

 

We have installations filtering wine in every region of the world at many of the largest wineries, but also at the smallest boutique producers as well as every customer in between. 

 

We have been at the forefront of new developments in wine processing for well over a century and our brands are often seen as benchmarks for wine and lees filtration

 

  • Seitz® filter sheets were first sold to wineries over 130 years ago. Since then, it is estimated that more than a trillion liters of wine have been filtered using our flat filter sheet media.
  • More recently our Oenoflow™ wine filtration systems changed the way wine is clarified. With over 1,500 installations, the Oenoflow system continues to be the leader globally for crossflow filtration.

Clarification

Clarification is the primary filtration step in the winemaking process. Yeasts and other particles from fermentation and fining are removed to reduce turbidity and improve downstream filterability.

Lees Filtration

Lees, the sediment at the bottom of juice, fermentation or fining vessels, can represent up to 10% of a winery’s total volume. Recovery of wine and juice from lees represents one of the most challenging forms of filtration faced by wineries.

Polishing Filtration/Colloid Removal

After primary clarification, stabilization and maturation, fining agents, crystals, colloids and bacteria may still be present in the wine. Polishing filtration is designed to remove these particles and haze to produce a brighter wine and improve filterability for downstream processing.

Bottling Filtration

As cartridge filtration is the last process step prior to bottling, it is critical to ensure removal of particulates and microorganisms that can result in re-fermentation, turbidity and off-flavors post bottling.
