The new range of Bevpor BR filter cartridges from Parker Domnick Hunter allows brewers to reduce the cost of microbial stabilisation significantly, whilst protecting the sensory appeal of beer. Constructed with a unique polyethersulphone (PES) membrane which has been validated to retain key spoilage organisms, it offers the longest service life and therefore the most efficient and lowest cost of operation in cold stabilisation applications.
The unique construction allows for easy integrity testing as the cartridge is entirely hydrophilic and wets out quickly and easily. With a greater control over testing of the filters, it prevents operation with a failed filter, which could lead to microbial contamination.
The Bevpor BR has proven to be a great success at the product trial sites. Amy Miller, technical support scientist at Parker, Domnick Hunter was involved in setting up one of the trials at a brewery. “The brewer was really happy with the results from the trial, in that this filter would provide them with cost reduction, whilst maintaining the quality of the beer, removing the undesired contaminants, with a longer lifetime, so less frequent change-outs were required,” she says. The new filter cartridges conform to the relevant requirements of FDA 21CFR Part 170-199, and European Regulation EC1935/2004.
