Turnkey automated cartridge filtration skids 

Automatic crossflow filtration systems for water and wine using premium polypropylene membrane technologies 

Multi-purpose technologies combining filtration and dissolved gas management 

World-beating back-washable filtration solutions for wine, beer, beverages and water

PTI PACIFIC has partnered with the world-leading filtration manufacturer, Sartorius to produce the PTI-1400 Series Automatic Back-washable Filtration solution for beverage producers.

This system which has been adopted by over 100 producers world-wide is the new solution to producers who desire the quality of gentle cartridge filtration and zero product, but want the technological advantages of a crossflow membrane filtration plant.

The answer is here.

Choice of filtration grades from 20 down to 0.45 micron

No heating of the wine

Significant energy saving compared to crossflow filtration

Protects organoleptic qualities compared to DE/Kieselguhr or crossflow filtration

Low pressure process

No continuous recirculation of wine through pumps or frequent backflushing

No loss of product, backwashing performed using water

1400 Series - Automatic Filtration Machines

Utilising the ground-breaking Sartorius Jumbo filter cartridge, the 1400 Series machine is offered in a Semi-Auto or Fully-Auto arrangement for consistent filtration.

The Jumbo filtration cartridge filters wine in a forward direction with differential pressure monitoring and control. When the filter cartridge begins to become clogged, the machine automatically empties the machine of the filtered product and back-washes with water before re-introducing the wine or beverage. No more continuous recirculation or constant backwashing with product which can be detrimental to the product quality. No more aggressive centrifuges with their expensive maintenance requirements and limiting performance.

From the largest factories to the smallest craft brewers, the The 1400 Series Automatic Filtration Machine with Jumbo cartridges is the answer for every filtration application.

 

Jumbo Star - Backwashable Filtration Solution from Sartorius

The pleating technology allows a large filtration area for a high-flow rate and large retention capacity. Each pleat has adifferent length to allow more efficient back-flushing compared to standard filter cartridges.

Features include:

  • High filtration area 28 m2(40”)
  • High filtration capacity
  • High flow rate
  • The internal diameter of the cartridge of DN 100
  • The robust housing design can withstand significantly higher flow rates when back-flushing compared to standard cartridges
  • High resistance to differential pressure up to 4 bar | 58 psi at 20°C (68°F)
  • High temperature resistance (steam sterilisable)
  • Wide chemical compatibility for Jumbo Star filters
