Food sanitation and safety is always a topic that is closely focused on. Due to the special nature of food & beverage, they are extremely susceptible to bacteria and spoilage during the production process or storage. For these products to be consumed by us every day, it is important to ensure safety and hygiene, which is relevant to our health.

In the manufacturing process of food and beverages, it is important to use the right filtration system with it. Different levels of filtration can remove impurities and bacteria from liquids and also avoid fermentation and mold problems in beverages.

The purpose of filtration is not only to maintain hygiene and remove bacteria but also to further enhance the taste of the drink. The use of filtration systems, especially in the wine, brewery, and drinking water industries, promotes the taste and flavor of products. The wine or beer with the contaminants removed is also more pleasing to the eye in the glass.

Brother Filtration has the ability to define and solve the problem in the Food & Beverage industry by designing and providing all kinds of depth filter cartridges, depth pleated filter cartridges, and membrane pleated filter cartridges, which meet the sanitary standard.

Why filtration is important for the food & beverage industry?

Filtration can bring better quality final products, a sterile effect, and a more delectable visual experience.

Effect of applying a filtration system

In the food and beverage industry, filtering is an essential step in the production process. Foods remain fresher thanks to filtration, which also increases the shelf life of snacks and beverages and improves the flavor and aroma of our vegetables. Filtration is important for protecting RO membranes, which are used to provide potable water or concentrate flavors, and for preserving food processing machinery.

Portable water in the food & beverage industry

In addition to being used to wash and rinse equipment, potable water is also a vital component of many foods, including reconstituted juices. It can also be used to dilute concentrated cleaning agents. In the food and beverage industry, all filtration techniques that are suitable to “potable water” are also helpful.

Filtration for better conservation condition

Filters with a submicron rating are frequently used to eliminate spoiling germs. In many instances, even a 3-day increase in shelf life can result in significant financial gains for the food maker, the entire supply chain, and ultimately the customer.

Regulations and standards for the food & beverage industry

As ordinary consumers, we frequently connect food with the end items that are consumed. Fluids that are filtered “in the background,” such as flavorings, enzymes, and nutrients, are also filtered. A chemical or biotech business frequently manufactures these chemicals and sells them to the food producer. Filters are utilized for utility fluids like water, compressed air, HVAC air, steam, and even ink used to print labels.

It’s crucial to choose materials that can safely come into contact with food. Choosing materials that are “FDA Listed” in Title 21 of the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations is a typical strategy in the USA. The food and beverage industry uses a lot of filters from Brother Filtration that are built with FDA-listed materials, including several extremely well-known names.

Regulations demand that producers of food, from vitamin-rich health foods to sugar-filled sweets, make a plan in advance to avoid potential issues. The World Health Organization and numerous local governments support the HACCP management method for ensuring food safety.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the United States, for instance, mandates the analysis and control of any biological, chemical, or physical hazards throughout the entire food production process, including the production of raw materials, their procurement and handling, manufacturing, distribution, and even the consumption of the finished product.

Filter system for different applications

Automative self-cleaning filter helps to lower the operation and maintenance costs

Due to their capacity to produce high water quality at low running costs, automatic self-cleaning filtration systems are frequently employed in food and beverage applications. These self-cleaning filters, created with our very own proprietary technology, backwash with a small amount of liquid, providing a highly effective yet labor-free solution for food and beverage applications.

Depth pleated filter cartridge helps to improve filtration efficiency

The number of sterilization cycles that the system can safely withstand and how frequently the filter bag or cartridge will need to be changed should be taken into account before selecting a food and beverage filter. These factors have a substantial impact on cost of ownership. In the long term, deep Pleated Filter Cartridges will save you money because they have the highest dirt keeping capacity and micron retention ratings up to 0.5 at 99.98% efficiency.

Sanitary filter system for high-standard applications

Due to strict industrial regulations, sanitary filters are needed in many food and beverage applications. Particularly dairy processing facilities frequently deal with difficult products including ice cream, butter, cheese, milk, chocolate, and yogurt, all of which offer problems because of their erratic flow rates and propensity to coagulate. To solve the problems caused by dairy products and other kinds of foods and beverages, Brother Filtration offers filtration systems.
