DrinkTec 2009 Pall

Pall has all kinds of solutions based on depth or surface filtration.

Pall Aria UNA – 620C Module


Ground water – removal of iron and manganese
Surface and municipally treated water – removal of particles, turbidity and microorganisms e.g. Cryptosporidium and Giardia cysts
Water refuse, e.g. filter backwash recovery
Bottle rinsing water – removal of fine colloids, protection of the final filter
End of pipe recovery
CIP recycling
  • Consistent water quality production regardless to raw water quality

Liquid Liquid Coalescer Demonstration


Separation of aqueous from oil phases in emerging flavor, extract, vitamin and other emulsion-based food and beverage fluids.

Technical details
  • Incoming fluid stream is continuously separated into aqueous and oily fluid streams
  • Inside to outside flow path results in coalescing action
  • Pre-filtration followed by final coalescing
  • Customized solutions based on customer requirements
  • Consistent and sharp separation of dispersed aqueous and oily phases even with high interfacial tension
  • Energy savings and increased process up time due to change from batch to continuous production
  • Customer and brand protection with coalescers which meet food contact regulations
  • Higher process yields due to elimination of tankage and filters aids
  • Reduced exposure to solvent with a closed system
  • Elimination of handling. Labor and waste-intensive filter aid technology
  • Flexible sizing matched to requirements of the application
  • Reduced cleaning and water costs
