In the brewing business, the right ingredients make all the difference. The right filtration does too. Donaldson has been providing high-quality, reliable sterile gas, steam and liquid filtration products for over 100 years.
The beer brewing process involves many steps. Filtration is necessary at several different points in beer production from rinsing the mash with sterile water to cleaning or sterilizing the kegs and bottles before filling.
Our filter elements and housings for compressed air and gas are engineered to provide lower pressure drop, longer filter life, quick and easy element change-outs and more predictable maintenance.
Donaldson filter housings are used to purify air and technical gases. We offer both non-sanitary and sanitary 3-A filter housings, both T-type and in-line as well as high pressure housings.
From stainless steel mesh prefilters to sterile membrane final filters, our high-quality filter elements will help you optimize your process.
From utility water used during manufacturing processes to sterile ingredient water, Donaldson's range of liquid filtration solutions will help preserve the integrity of your product.
We offer a broad range of filter housings from high quality polypropylene to stainless steel for purification of liquids in the food, beverage, chemical, pharmaceutical, coatings and other process industries.
Protect product integrity and enhance product performance with our cartridge filter elements for liquid process filtration.
Our high-quality stainless steel filter housings and elements provide excellent filtration and purification of steam necessary for culinary steam and clean steam applications.
Our high-quality stainless steel filter housings are designed for the purification of industrial steam.

Breweries are regulated by the FDA under the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of 2010, and are also subject to a number of industry standards such as Safe Quality Foods. Compliance requires having a comprehensive Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan or Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls (HARPC) plan in place. Filtration of process air, water, and steam is key to that effort.
Each brewery will have unique needs, but in general, there are more than a dozen locations where filtration is critical to the safety of your product and equipment. Here are just some examples:
Collaborating with an experienced filtration partner can help you develop a compliant filtration system that is also cost-efficient.
