The all-in-one solution for small and medium producers
This filter is designed for small/medium manufacturers needing to filter their products (wines and lees) with a “SINGLE” solution, obtaining a filtered product of excellent quality with a turbidity below 1 NTU. That is why VLS Technologies has created the UNICO filtration system. Thanks to our filter it becomes possibile getting a good filtration of the product and reducing the microbiological flora; all of this by saving all the organoleptic characteristic of the product. Our filtering media can stand repeated regenerations with warm water and detergents: this means a longer lifespan.
Our UNICO filter is available in different sizes with 1, 4, 7 and 10 filtering modules up to 60 hl/h. All the filters are realized in stainless steel with food degree polishing and they are placed, depending on the size, on stainless steel skids on wheels. The filter, depending on the size, are completed with pumps, housings and all the instrumentation necessary for correct operation and check of the safety parameters. It also includes pressure transducers, electronical flow meter, probe for temperature control, device for control of flow rate of the feed pump, tank for cleaning and for the dosing of detergents. All models are available in automatic and semi automatic version. In the latter the PLC handles all the operations – filling, filtration, discharge, washing- and constantly monitor all the parameters with no needs for operator’s intervention. Thanks to the touch screen it is possible to set all the phases, times and all the parameters necessary to the correct operation of the machine.
Flow rate and the capacity on the single run
Our UNICO filters are designed to adapt the most of the cases. Our machines have flow rates from 9-60 hl/h depending to the required configuration. For medium turbidity products, the average capacity on the single run i sas follows: up to 600 hl/h for the 1 module, up to 2000 hl/h for the 4 modules; up to 4000 hl/h for the 7 modules; up to 6000 hl/h for the 10 modules.
UNICO filters are suitable to be inserted in any filtration stage having in inlet products with high content of suspended solids.
Power consumption is 6.5, 9, 11, 13 KW for 1, 4, 7 and 10 modules respectively.
The advantadges in comparison to traditional filtration are: no need for filtration adjuvants; reduced product losses; low retention of colour and structure; single filter for all needs; possibility of filtration of sparkling wines; no lees in stock.
