Beer Contaminants & Filtration Solutions

Beer Contaminants & Filtration Solutions

Beer production has been steadily increasing across Europe, with Germany and United Kingdom being the biggest producers and consumers respectively.  Figures from British Beer and Pub association show that there are now more than 1,400 breweries in the UK. Rising popularity of craft beers and artisanal products has further fuelled this trend and nearly 500 microbreweries opened in the UK last year. Beer is intrinsically resistant to bacterial growth due to high alcohol, low pH, high CO2 , ...
Filtration of Fuels & Biofuels

Filtration of Fuels & Biofuels

Biofuel blends create new filtration challenges Biofuels market has grown rapidly in recent years and an increasing number of industrial fuel users are using blends of biofuels which presents a new set of filtration challenges. Siga Filtration offers a range of cartridge and bag filtration products for the filtration of fuels and biodiesel blends. Our Stainless Steel filter housings provide excellent chemical compatibility with all types of fuels. We have had great success in filtering B20 blend ...
Machine Tool Coolant Filtration

Machine Tool Coolant Filtration

Maintenance and disposal of coolants is a significant cost for metalworking industry.  In the absence of filtration, machine coolants can quickly accumulate large metal chips and small (<100 micron) particles. A large number of these abrasive particles are invisible to the naked eye and will cause premature failure of tools, damage nozzles, reduce coolant life and negatively impact surface finish.  Considering the cost of coolant changes, rejected parts, tools and machine breakdowns, a well-designed c...
Sidestream Filters - CHW, LTHW, MTHW

Sidestream Filters - CHW, LTHW, MTHW

What is Sidestream Filtration? Sidestream filters work by filtering a small percentage of full flow (5 - 15%) so that the complete system volume is filtered 2 - 3 times every 24 hours. Sidestream filters provide an excellent solution for filtering high volumes of CHW and LTHW or MTHW. It must be noted that filtration combined with water treatment is part of a preventative maintenance program and the primary purpose is to increase operational life of mechanical components. While a correctly designed...
Sterile filtration of water with 0.2 micron filters

Sterile filtration of water with 0.2 micron filters

What are 0.2 micron filters? 0.2 micron filters are usually pleated membrane filter cartridges. Polyethersulphone and Nylon 6,6 are hydrophilic membranes which are used for aqueous solutions. PTFE & PVDF are hydrophobic membranes used for non aqueous solutions and gases. Hydrophobic membranes can be used on aqueous solutions by wetting them with a low surface tension liquids. What are 0.2 micron filters used for? 0.2micron PES or Nylon membranes are commonly used for sterile filtration of...
