Eaton’s stacked disc cartridge housings are enclosed filter housing consisting of a bottom part with 3 feet and a detachable housing dome. The bottom part with inlet and outlet piece contains the centering and mounting unit for the stacked disc cartridge with a flat adapter or double O-ring adapter.
The individual cartridge cells are made up using BECO depth filter sheets and the outer edge of two of these depth filters, whose outlet side is in contact with a drainage plate, is coated with polypropylene and sealed. Depending on the cartridge type, a different number of stacked filter cells forms a cartridge unit, which is safely held together by the three-part segmented sleeve made from stainless steel. Sealing between the filter cells is via accurately fitting intermediate profile rings. When installed, the segmented sleeve made from stainless steel ensures excellent mechanical sealing of the module. The occurrence of bypass effects is therefore eliminated.
BECOPAD is a new mineral free (no D.E. or perlite) depth filtration media containing only purified cellulose fiber. BECOPADs are characterized by their unparalleled purity when compared with conventional filter sheets. With very low extractable ions, the pads will not impart any undesirable taste in your product.
BECOPAD depth filter sheets were developed to meet demanding liquid filtration requirements. The product range covers retention grades between 5.0 and 0.1 microns. With 13 individual sheet grades we can provide a specific sheet to meet all filtration applications. Finely fibrillated charged cellulose fibers form the matrix of the BECOPAD depth filter sheet.
Diatomaceous earth (DE), is a filtration media composed of microscopic diatoms silica structures millions of years old. DE is used in the beer industry as an extremely effective economical filtration media to facilitate liquid-solid separating. DE’s uniquely strong cylindrical shape, high pore volume and low resistance to flow make it the go-to filter medium.
Application: Two-step operation; first added as a protective layer (pre-coat), and then to maintain porosity (body-feed in pressure filters).
Packaging: 50 lb. bag & 1000 kg super sack
Chemically inert complex filter aids which are used in the formation of precoats for continuous dosing filtrations. Fiber Floc is specifically formulated to contain highly purified alpha cellulose and cotton fibers (zeta-potential) in addition to perlite. Fiber Floc 10 is recommended for primary filtration and Fiber Floc 30 is recommended for polish filtration.
Application: Usually added as the initial pre-coat then followed by either DE or Perlite.
Packaging: 35 lb. bag.
Perlite is a lightweight expanded bubble structures from volcanic glass that are milled and classified into powders that are used in both pressure and vacuum filtration equipment. Perlite filter aids are inert and will impart no taste or odor into wine, and are virtually insoluble in mineral and organic acids at all temperatures. Various grades are available, so please contact an ATP rep about your particular need.
Application: Usually added as a filtration aid during filtration or as a pre-coat at the start of the filtration cycle.
Packaging: 25-35 lb. bag depending on grade.
