The performance parameters depend on the input parameters of the filtered liquid, the types of filtration agents used and optimization of the operating parameters (flow through the filter, level of dosed filtration agents taking into account the increase in differential pressure).
The flow through the filter for the filtration of beer is in the range of 5 to 8 hl per hour per 1 m² of basic filtration area.
The total consumption of filtration agents (kieselguhr, ...) for basic alluvial and continuous dosing is 80 to 160g/hl of beer depending on its filterability (amount of yeast cells, proteins and colloids in unfiltered beer).
The capacity of one cycle is 30 - 60 hl of filtrate (filtered beer) per 1 m2 of basic filtration area.
The clarity of the filtrate according to the colloidal state of beer and the type of filtration agents used is 0.25 - 0.60 j. EBC.
