Cider & Perry Filtration

Address the key challenges of cider manufacturing by eliminating waste and maximizing safety and quality throughout the cider making process

Explore Cider & Perry

What is Cider? 

 

Cider is an alcoholic beverage obtained by the complete or partial fermentation of:

 

  • the juice of fresh apples, 
  • the reconstituted juice of concentrate made from the juice of apple, 
  • a mixture of both.

 

The product will have a general alcohol content within the range of 1.2% to less than 8.5% alcohol by volume (ABV).

What is Perry?

 

Perry is an alcoholic beverage made using a method that is similar to cider production but using pears rather than apples. It has been common for centuries in England and is also made in parts of Wales and France.

 

The UK is the largest market for cider globally and cider consumption is predominantly European, but other regions are seeing significant growth in recent years.

We Are a Global Leader for Crossflow Filtration in Cider

Pall Corporation has a strong presence in the world of cider making and is an important supplier of filtration technologies to the UK’s cider industry, as well as all other cider and perry producing regions globally.

 

Seitz® filter sheets were first sold to wineries over 130 years ago, but cider is also a market where they have been sold for many decades. It is estimated that more than a trillion liters of wine have been filtered using our flat filter sheet media and is therefore logical to assume that the amount of cider filtered is also equally significant.

 

In recent years our Oenoflow™ filtration systems have changed the way cider is clarified. With over 1,500 installations, many of which are in cider, the Oenoflow system continues to be the global leader for crossflow filtration in cider. 

 

 

Filtration is a key operation in modern cider production to deliver visually bright and shelf stable product. Pall offers a wide range of filtration and separation solutions to accommodate this fast-growing industry in applications from post fermentation clarification to final filtration for microbiological stabilization. When combined with our GeneDisc® technologies for rapid detection of yeast, our cider filtration products help customers meet high standards for preserving taste, flavor and quality.

Cider/Perry Clarification and Diafiltration

Filtration is a key operation in modern cider production to deliver visually bright and shelf stable product. Traditionally, cider clarification has been performed with diatomaceous earth or sheet based filtration technologies. However, with more favorable economics, easier operation and lower waste volumes, crossflow filtration systems like Pall’s Oenoflow™ XL system have become more widely adopted over the past decade.

Cider/Perry Lees Recovery and Diafiltration

Lees, the sediment at the bottom of juice, fermentation or maturation vessels, still contains a high percentage of recoverable cider. The Oenoflow™ HS system is a new crossflow filtration system designed specifically for lees processing. The hollow fiber system overcomes the typical drawbacks associated with the existing Diatomaceous Earth (DE) based lees filters, producing higher quality product more efficiently and economically.

Cider/Perry QC /Microbial Detection- Spoilage

Monitoring yeast during cider production is critical to ensure quality product and brand protection. Yeast detection is commonly based on traditional culture method using selective enrichment, biochemical tests and microscopy. Conventional methods can be challenging because a high level of expertise is required and screening/identification may require up to 10 days. Pall’s GeneDisc® technology offers an innovative solution to accelerate the time to result.

Cider/Perry Polishing

After primary clarification, maturation, and blending, fining agents, precipitates, yeast and bacteria and may still be present in the cider. Polishing filtration is designed to remove these particles and haze to produce a brighter product and improve filterability for downstream processing.
