New Beer Membrane Filtration Solution Meets Requirements of Craft and Small Breweries

New Beer Membrane Filtration Solution Meets Requirements of Craft and Small Breweries

With the development of the BMF +Flux Compact S4, Pentair makes the benefits of diatomaceous earth (DE)-free beer membrane filtration accessible to craft and small breweries. The first BMF +Flux Compact S4 systems are already operating successfully at the Princen Brewery in the Netherlands, and two other breweries in Europe.

The BMF +Flux Compact S4 is equipped with four type R-30 membrane modules. Its filtration performance of 30 to 60 hl/h makes it ideally suited for breweries with an annual output between 10,000 hl and 100,000 hl.

Compared to DE filtration, membrane filtration provides major performance benefits. Complex DE handling and disposal is eliminated. In addition, Pentair’s Beer Membrane Filtration gives brewers a fully automated process that can be interrupted at any time. This true start/stop filtration is especially beneficial to craft brewers who produce a wide variety of beers. Small batches of beer can be run with constantly excellent beer quality and very low beer loss. This provides considerably more turnover for craft beers, which are often exclusive runs.

Fast Installation, Easy Integration

Pentair’s Beer Membrane Filtration technology provides flexible installation and integration. The preassembled BMF +Flux Compact S4 filter unit is a stand-alone solution on a stainless steel frame. To install the BMF in an existing brewery all that is needed are incoming and outgoing beer connections, water, power, compressed air, and carbon dioxide. The compact structure of the BMF +Flux Compact S4 unit that measures 3.5 to 1.5 meters is a major advantage for easy integration.

In 2002, Pentair introduced the world’s first commercial large-scale BMF system for DE-free beer membrane filtration. Since then, more than 100 BMF systems have been commissioned, currently filtering more than 100 million hl of beer annually.
