Our process filtration solutions for liquid, steam and sterile air are used throughout the manufacturing of non-alcoholic beverages such as juice, water, and soda.
Filtration reduces the risk of contamination throughout the manufacturing process. It is used to remove all types of contamination from the final product or its ingredients. Sterile air may be used to blow bottles or vent a storage tank, and steam should be used to sterilize filter elements and equipment.
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.
Minimize harmful condensate build-up from compressed air processes with our condensate management systems.
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.
We provide high performing steam filter elements to protect equipment and processes that rely on that steam for efficient, clean and/or sterile operation.
In addition to a number of industry standards, the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) of 2010 includes soft drinks and other non-alcoholic beverages in its regulated products. By 2018, processors are required to have a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) plan or Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls (HARPC) plan in place, in place to protect consumers against food-borne illness.
While facilities vary, in general, filtration is recommended at the following stages of beverage processing:
Working with an experienced filtration partner can help you design a system that is both compliant and cost-effective.
