Wine making is an artistic process that requires the utmost care and precision to ensure the final product is perfect. One of the many critical steps within wine production is filtration. Donaldson's extensive product portfolio makes us a strong partner that can help wineries and mobile bottlers protect wine from spoilage and maintain process integrity.

Using Donaldson's proven LifeTec® product line, particulate, yeast cultures and other contaminants will be removed from the wine prior to bottling. Removing yeast will prevent a secondary fermentation from occurring within the bottle. LifeTec is also a strong choice for sterilizing water used for amelioration and rinsing bottles prior to filling.

Donaldson's complete offering of compressed air, gas and steam filtration solutions will protect expensive bottling equipment from failure, purify nitrogen that stabilizes the wine during bottling and help to maintain an impeccably clean facility.

When Donaldson’s Process Filtration product portfolio is used in conjunction with industry best practices, we can effectively protect the brand and product integrity for wine manufacturers.
