The quality of the final product on the shelf is paramount for you as a manufacturer. This quality can be compromised if insufficient attention is given to the filtration of utilities such as steam and air and raw ingredients such as the water and sugar syrups. Conducting a HACCP audit on specific filtration steps will highlight where the focus needs to be and what improvements need to be made. We can work with you to solve any filtration problems and ensure the most cost-effective process is implemented.
Throughput on sugar solution reducing batch to batch?
Filtration steps to remove undissolved particles and reduce turbidity are used for multiple batches of syrup solutions. The maintenance of filtration performance from batch to batch through regular flushing and conditioning is critical in maximising service life. Optimising this part of the process can lead to a doubling in filter service life.
Protecting your Process Water Quality
Incoming water quality into your water treatment plant can vary considerably in terms of turbidity, mineral content, chlorine content etc. Filtration plays a key role in protecting purification steps such as ion exchange resins, RO membrane and ensuring UV systems work effectively. We have a wide range of depth filters to ensure protection and improve overall service life. If incoming water quality is leading to premature blockage of prefiltration stages due to biofouling we also supply filters with antimicrobial technology to prevent this.
We are able to work with cartridges and housings from all major manufactures giving you complete flexibility.

Amazon has helped businesses like you
The food manufacturer was building a new processing plant to increase their production capacity and product portfolio. The design engineers for the new coffee processing plant specified the use of process filters and as the filters were in contact with foodstuffs they needed to meet stringent regulatory compliance standards. Therefore the customer was looking for a filtration specialist which they could trust to meet their technical and regulatory requirements.
In the production process coffee for freeze drying is transferred from one tank to another. During this step there is a requirement to remove any agglomerated coffee from the system to maintain product quality and for pump protection. The scale and design of the operation necessitated the use of ten transfer filters for this application. The filters needed to be of sanitary/hygienic design and also able to withstand aggressive treatment when being subjected to regular in-situ cleaning.
Being aware of Amazon’s capabilities in designing and manufacturing customised systems, the client invited Amazon to be their supplier of choice for this particular project. To fully meet the customer requirements Amazon provided 10 off 89 Series housings with an internal finish of 0.8μ Ra fitted with DuoMesh stainless steel lined mesh baskets. Additionally vacuum jackets were required on all filters to maintain the low operating temperature. This system was fully compatible with the CIP system liquid (12% Caustic solution at 85°C) and met the further requirement of enabling recovery of any product remaining in the system at the end of the process.
Benefits for the filter user
Amazon Filters is a leading European provider of process filtration equipment and therefore was able to provide a unique product to this customer and meet all their specific technical and regulatory requirements.
This flexible and adaptable approach helped ensure that a minimum of local engineering resource was required to commission the process on time and on budget.
Improving Process Economics
Improving Process Economics
Margins can be tight in Soft Drinks production with manufacturers always looking to improve process economics. From the aspect of filtration, these improvements can typically be made through one or more of the following:
- Reduction in the unit cost of the consumable filters themselves.
- Introduction of better performing filters that extend capacity.
- Better equipment utilisation by improving flowrates thereby increasing the number of batches processed per shift.
- Improvement to the process itself in terms of flowrate optimisation, cartridge regeneration, etc.
