Filters

Vigo supplies a range of filters for filtering cider prior to carbonation / bottling:

  • Sheet filters consist of a series of cellulose-based filter sheets which are clamped between filter plates in a way that allows each sheet to filter cider independently - in parallel. Filter sheets are available in different grades of porosity and so different grades of filtration can be achieved, i.e., coarse, medium, fine, and sterile.
  • Earth filters are ideal for fast, economical filtration of large volumes of cider. Diatomaceous earth (diatomite / kieselguhr) is the filtration medium.
  • Cross flow filters, from Bared, allow the filtration of large volumes of cider in a single step without the use of consumables.

NB: Cartridge filters are also available as a particle filter for cider and for final filtration of cider to ensure the absence of yeast cells prior to bottling. They consist of a cylindrical filter cartridge held in a housing with product inlet and outlet connections. Cider entering the housing can only leave after passing through the cartridge.
