Bared cross-flow filters can be used as a sterilisation unit to block fermentation or as a filtration unit. The following applications are ideal for cross-flow filtration:

  • Obtain clear products (turbidity <1 NTU) from turbid cider and wines which are normally too difficult or time-consuming to treat using the conventional filtration method.
  • Single filtration step of wine & cider
  • Production of wines and other drinks with sugar residue
  • Prevention of malolactic fermentation
  • Improved tartrate stability
  • Filtration of sparkling wines



Conventional filtration involves liquid passing through a filter surface in a perpendicular way. With crossflow filtration, where a semi-permeable membrane is used, liquid passes both through and across the membrane, keeping the surface clean of residues.

The benefits of using cross-flow filtration can include:

  • Clarifying substances & filtering aids are not required - save on production, storage, labour and disposal costs
  • Charging/discharging filter with filter medium not required - save on labour and costs
  • Less filtration stages & single filtration for cider & wine
  • Save on labour and operator mistakes
  • Elimination of processing time for clarification and sedimentation - less tanks ‘locked-up’
  • Continuous running - filtration cycles can last 20 hours and more
  • Consistent flow rate - flow rate established at beginning of cycle and averagely kept constant
  • Integral product recovery - lowest unfiltered volumes (0.2% of total volume)
  • Energy saving - 0.09kW/100 litres of filtered product
