Brewery industry

Filtration is widely used throughout brewing, and most beers sold today are filtered to some extent.
Filtration is key to improving the quality and taste of beer in any setting. Whether individuals are making homebrew, pub breweries are making stock quantities, or large-scale beverage distributors are mass-producing a line of beer products, the filtration is very similar.

We are proud to manufacture high-quality filter housings and design filter system solution that are ideal for use in the brewing, distilling, and beverage industry. For all of your brewery industry filtration needs, visit us online or contact us for your custom quote if you are in the beer or brewery business.

The brewery industry filtration process mainly includes Filtration After the Mashing Processes, water filtration process, trap filtration process, sterilization filtration process, steam filtration process and Filtration For Clarifying and Finishing.

The Filtration Process of Brewery Industry

1. Filtration After the Mashing Processes
Mashing is the process of steeping mill grain in hot water to activate the malt enzymes and convert starches into fermentable sugars. In this stage, the mash is separated into the liquid wort and residual grain product. The wort is then filtered through the filter system to catch waste grain as the wort is transferred into a brew kettle. It is in this filtration process that a quality bag filter housing system is important and can withstand high heat and filter bags ensure optimal particle removal.

2. Water Filtration Process
In the process of brewing beer, the cleaning water for pipes and equipment, the inlet water of the boiler, and the process water generally come from municipal water or inlet water. Pollutants such as rust and dirt in the water will affect the system and shorten its service life. Therefore, it is necessary to install a filtration system to filter it. The filtration equipment usually uses Stainless Steel Cartridge Filtration Housings, and the filter element sually uses wedge wire screens, false bottom,etc.

3. Trap Filtration Process
In order to remove the diatomaceous earth leaking from the diatomaceous earth plate and frame filter and to ensure the appearance of the beer is clear and bright, a capture filter system will be installed after the diatomaceous earth plate and frame filter. In order to remove impurities more efficiently, the filtration equipment generally uses Stainless Steel Filter Housings. The filter consumables usually choose Pleated Filters or wedge wire screen filters.

4. Sterilization Filtration Process
The sterilization filtration system is mainly used in the aseptic cleaning water filtration process before the filling process and the beer cold sterilization process to ensure that the beer and the bottles or barrels used for filling are free of bacteria, viruses and other contaminants, and meet the hygienic standards of food and beverages. The sterilization filtration system is generally composed of Sanitary SUS316L Filter Housings.

5. Filtration For Clarifying and Finishing
At the end of the process, when the beer is ready to consume, it will be clarified and filtered one to two more times. The brew is filtered to further improve clarity by removing sediments, yeast particles, and any grain or hops that made it through the previous steps.
In the final step, a final filtration can be conducted as the beer is placed in containers for consumption.

The filtration process of beer brewing may vary depending on the type of beer produced and the scale of the brewery. Therefore, when designing a brewery industry filtration system, appropriate filtration should be selected according to the specific production requirements and sanitary standards on site.
