Final Filtration for: Wine, Cider, Beer & Alcohol Free Beverage

A Fresh Approach to Microfiltration

The Imperium Microbial Stabilization (MSB) Filter is designed for the final filtration of wine, cider, beer and alcohol free beverages. As the final control step prior to packaging, the Imperium MSB Filter removes spoilage and indicator organisms which can adversely affect taste and quality, providing a fresh product with excellent shelf-life.

Watch our animation to learn how the robust Imperium MSB Filter design reduces the risk of filter integrity failure.

Modular Housing

Imperium Tri-Cam

The Imperium Tri-Cam interface ensures filter change-out is simple, quick and error proof, eliminating the potential for downtime or contamination as a result of filter miss-installation. Filter change-out can be completed almost 3x quicker when compared to a standard filter cartridge installation, requiring only 1 operator.

What's Your Flow Rate

Depending on the quality of pre-filtration and fluid filterability, Pall SLS Global Technical Support can recommend optimal sizing specific to your process.


28 HL / hr
12 USG / min

28 HL / Hour (12 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 226 hL / hour (99 USG / Min).

Wine & Cider

68 HL / hr
30 USG / min

68 HL / Hour (30 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 542 hL / hour (239 USG / Min).

Bottled Water

0.28 m3 / min
75 USG / min

0.28 m3 / Min (75 USG / Min), with parallel multi-size configurations available for increased flow rates up to 2.26 m3 / Min (598 USG / Min).

Imperium Filter Housing

  2. Patent pending Tri-Cam filter-housing interface

  3. Housing certified to 3-A 10-04

  4. 316L stainless steel wetted parts construction, electropolished with high quality welds

  5. Modular, parallel housing configuration

  6. ASME VIII Div 1 approved V-Band Housing Clamp

  7. Equipped with standard accessories



  1. Optimal performance through the use of Imperium Filter Cartridges

  2. Filter changeover is simple, error proof and 3x quicker than standard cartridges and housings

  3. Fluid quality, full drainability and reduced risk of contamination through hygienic design

  4. Corrosion resistance, durability and full cleanability

  5. Continuous operation, minimal downtime and production interruptions.

  6. Simple, low cost capacity expansion

  7. Ease of a V-Band combined with the assurance of ASME certification

  8. Quick and simple integration into your process

The modular Imperium housing configuration allows parallel or duplex operation. This brings complete process flexibility and the potential for continuous operation during cleaning, sanitization, maintenance or troubleshooting. It is suitable for a wide range of process flow rates and its design enables simple, low cost future expansion, as your capacity increases in line with your success.

Imperium installations can be used or easily expanded to meet a range of process flow rates.

For multi-size installations, optional manifolds can be provided, allowing in between 1 and 8 housings to be installed in parallel as standard.

For expansion of capacity, simply add the required number of housings with a new manifold or manifold extension kit.



Cartridges produced in a controlled environment

Manufactured under a Quality Management System certified to ISO9001:2008

Standard Accessories

Imperium housings are supplied with standard accessories, which include:

  • Inlet and outlet butterfly valves
  • Upstream and downstream hosetail drains
