DESTILA filtration lines are equipped with automated control of the flow through the filter and dosing pumps and control of pressure ratios in the filter (input, output, differential pressure) as standard.
A turbidimeter ensures a higher level of control functions. It detects the turbidity values (j.EBC) of the beer at the filter output and, if the set parameters are exceeded, the system automatically changes the FILTER phase to a CIRCULATION phase. Whereby, the filtrate returns to the filter and either a sounds or signal alerts the operator to the faulty condition.
A turbidimeter can also be added before the beer enters the filter. This provides an overview of how the beer passing through the filter is burdened with yeast and/or other turbid particles. Depending on the value of the turbidity at the inlet (j.EBC), the increase in differential pressure (kPa/h) and the recipe used, the system automatically adjusts the dosing of the kieselguhr during the filter cycle. In addition to the quality of filtration, this degree of automation can ensure more efficient use of the kieselguhr and reduce its consumption. We will also take care of your warranty service.
