Beer and Wine Stabilisation Optimised by Stabifil(TM), Brau Beviale Exhibition Discovers
An innovative adsorption product is leading the way in refining beer and wine stabilisation techniques while lowering costs across the industry.
International leader in high performance materials and products, Porvair Filtration Group has developed Stabifil™, a novel polyphenol removal product that optimises beverage processes, lowers capital costs, and offers fast flow rates. Stabifil™ - which will be showcased at the Brau Beviale exhibition in Nuremberg, Germany, from 11-13 November - also benefits from no loss of loose Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVPP) powder with its potential to create long-term maintenance and health and safety issues. The product uses Porvair’s patented technology of co-sintering PVPP powder with Vyon® porous plastic to effect product exposure to PVPP at high flow rates with low contact time in a sanitary and highly efficient manner. The product can also be regenerated many times.
Stabifil™, currently configured in cartridges to allow the user to incorporate into standard cartridge housings, is currently undergoing production trials with leading beer and wine producers in Europe. Lenticular and other configurations are planned developments for larger producers in the coming months.
Porvair – which has supplied the process industry with performance-driven filtration equipment for over 25 years – manufactures in both the UK and USA and has an extensive network of sales offices and distribution channels throughout the world.
The company’s Microfiltration Market Manager, Mike Hughes, said: “Stabifil™ represents much needed innovation in the area of beverage stabilisation processes that is being increasingly recognised across the industry. We're proud of what it can offer – lowered costs, heightened efficiency, and no loss of loose powder, all neatly packaged for ease of use. Co-sintering PVPP powder with strong and lightweight Vyon® porous plastic has also promoted high flow rates with very low contact time for efficient and sanitary benefits. We look forward to showcasing Stabifil™ to the European market at the Brau Beviale exhibition in November.”
