Automatic crossflow filter TMF-I

Our cross flow filter for large producers: a technology that can be equipped with up to 84 polyethersulphone (PES) membranes for a filtering surface of up to 840 sqm. With TMF-I you can avoid kieselguhr and other filtration adjuvants.


VLS TMF filters are particularly efficient

  • Modularity: from 12 to 84 membranes (from 10 to 840 m2 of filtering surface)
  • Low energy consumption (0,045 kW/m2)
  • Asymmetrical structure of the membranes: low pressure drops, uniform filtration, low stress for the product, high flow rate, easy cleaning of the pores, they can be washed up to 90°C/194°F
  • PRS (Pressure Release System): the machine doesn’t need filtered wine for back flushing, it is not necessary to reprocess the filtered wine, less stress for the membranes

VLS TMF membranes are specific for cross-flow filtration

  • PES membrane filter specific for wine and derivatives; suitable for cider, apple juice and vinegar filtration
  • Capillary membranes: internal diameter up to 1,5 mm
