Filter housings & cartridges -

Vigo offers filter housings and cartridges for a range of applications, from coarse filtration of cloudy juices, to fine ‘sterile’ filtration of wines, beers and ciders. Cartridge filtration can also be used for dechlorination of water. Cartridges are held in a housing with inlet and outlet connections, and product can only leave the housing after passing through the cartridge.

Housings are available in three sizes: 10”, 20” and 30” (larger housings/cartridges are used where a greater flow rate is required), and in three materials:

  • Clear polypropylene: Typically used for coarse juice filtration. The user is able to see the condition of the filter.
  • Blue polypropylene: Usually used when filtering water.
  • Stainless steel: Ideal where the housing is to be steam sterilised. Available as tandem filters where product needs to be filtered through different grades simultaneously.

Cartridges are available in a wide range of materials for a wide range of applications, including:

  • Stainless steel wire mesh cartridges are used to filter liquids with occasional large particles, such as stray insects. We recommend that these cartridges are used between juice holding tanks and bottling machines.
  • Spun Polypropylene (depth filter cartridges) are used for relatively coarse filtration from 5 micron down to 0.5 micron. Usually used as a prefilter prior to using a more expensive membrane filter.
  • Polyethersulphone pleated membrane cartridges are used for final filtration of products to remove yeast cells prior to bottling, typically down to 0.45 micron.
  • Granular activated carbon cartridges are used for dechlorination of water.
