Soft Drinks And Bottled Water
Amazon Filters products are used by the worlds leading soft drinks manufacturers at every stage of the process to ensure sparkling bright products. Typical applications include raw water filtration, de-chlorination, product/ingredient clarification and control of microorganisms such as Cryptosporidium. Amazon has a range of filter products that can provide the ideal solution to your process requirements.
Some of the raw materials used in soft drink production may contain particles that can affect final product quality. Filtration can remove both visible particles and the very fine contaminants that can cause background haze (polishing filtration). Typically Amazon SupaSpun II cartridges are used for water filtration and Amazon SupaSpun II or SupaPleat II cartridges for the filtration of syrup or other viscous additives. Where coloured impurities are present SupaCarb activated carbon modules can provide a clean simple method to remove these contaminants.
Fine Filtration and Micro-organism Control
Fine Filtration can be used for final polishing to produce a bright product or for the removal of microorganisms such as yeasts, Cryptosporidium oocysts and Giardia lamblia. For this application we would recommend Amazon SupaPleat II or SupaSpun II cartridges. Where Cryptosporidium removal is required we can offer special ‘Crypto’ grade filters which have been qualified for this application.
Where sterile filtration of bottled water is required prior to bottling we recommend the use of 0.45 or 0.2 µm SupaPore VPW filters.
For most of these applications the Amazon 61 Series and 63 Series housings offer an ideal low cost solution. Where a fully draining leg mounted housing design is preferred e.g. for steaming, hot CIP duty, filtration of syrup, sugary or viscous additives, the Amazon 62 Series, 64 Series or 70 Series housings should be considered.
Food processing is no less demanding in its quest for high quality filtration products to support the increasing value of the products processed, to ensure consumer protection and customer satisfaction. With a host of special applications, our products are successfully used on Dairy products, Edible Oils, Sugars and Vinegars as well as Fermentation and a host of other food production processes. Amazon SupaSpun II depth cartridges, the DuoLine range of filter bags and DuoMesh strainer baskets offer a cost effective solution for a range of applications including particle removal from edible oils, syrups, flavourings or sauces and for water filtration. Where cyst removal e.g Cryptosporidium oocysts, Giardia lamblia etc is required we would recommend Amazon special ‘Crypto’ grade SupaPleat II or SupaSpun II cartridges which have been specifically qualified for this application.
For gases supplied to product contact areas and packaging machines SupaPore TP or SupaPleat II filters are typically used for control of particulates, bioburden reduction or complete removal of microorganisms.
