Wine Lees Filtration

Recovery of wine from lees represents one of the most challenging forms of filtration faced by wineries. The high concentration and variability of the suspended solids limits the suitable filtration technologies, while strict environmental regulations and sustainability programs are increasing pressure to reduce waste volumes. The Oenoflow™ HS system is a new crossflow filtration system designed specifically for recovery of wine from lees. The hollow fiber membrane system overcomes the typical drawbacks associated with the existing Diatomaceous Earth (DE) based lees filters, producing higher quality wine more efficiently and economically. 

DE based technologies can also require large volumes of filter aid. This increases the winery waste, disposal, labor, and wine losses; all factors contributing to high operating costs.
