Membrane technology for the food & beverage industry requires microfiltration and special attention to hygienic design. X-Flow R30 modules were developed for the removal of yeast cells, protein complexes and other turbidities from liquids such as beer, wine, cider and milk. These modules, featuring high mechanical strength and high resistance to chemicals, are operated in crossflow mode. MF membranes based on hydrophilic hollow-fiber microfiltration, have a pore size in the range of 0.4 –0.8 µm and are composed of a a PES/PVP blend in a stainless steel housing.
The diameter of the membrane modules are approx. 250 mm x 1500 mm.
R-30 modules are usually racked in a skid (standard unit) of 6 modules. The permeate flow ranges between 1200-2400 liter per hour per module, which amounts to 7.5-15 m3 per hour per skid. The mode of operation is typically batch-wise, but continuous operation by alternation between two sets, or cascade systems, are also possible.
