Filtration plays a key role in modern cider production, delivering visually bright and shelf-stable products. Traditionally, cider clarification is performed with diatomaceous earth or sheet-based filtration technologies, after filtration. However, over the last decade, crossflow filtration systems, like Pall’s Oenoflow XL system, have gained popularity due to their more favorable economics, easier operation, and lower waste volumes.

While the aforementioned clarification systems can concentrate to high solids levels, a significant amount of recoverable alcohol in the yeast remains at the bottom of fermentation or maturation tanks and filtration system concentrates. With the High Solids (HS) system from Pall, cider producers can now recover high-quality cider from these residual streams. This innovation allows for a capacity increase up to 4% capacity with no additional capital investment required. Explore the benefits a cider mill producing 20 million liters of cider annually realized upon implementation of the Oenoflow HS system to recover additional alcohol from their cider lees.
