It is the goal of spirit producers around the world to make stable, high quality products that meet customer expectations and deliver good profitability.
During the production of spirits, filtration is one of the most challenging and important steps of the process.
Quality is the main driver of filtration in the spirits industry. However, to select a suitable filter, it is important to consider visual quality while still maintaining the flavor characteristics consumers expect.
For a famous leading whisky producer in Scotland, spirit quality is paramount. The company prides itself in being the leader in the premium malt whisky category as a whisky innovator with numerous awards and accolades across the world for their premium brands.
This producer was repeatedly observing high filtrate turbidity, which was out of specification for their process. High filtrate turbidity resulted in line downtime and a reduction in line availability.
Based on Pall’s extensive reference installations in Scotland, the whisky producer was encouraged to consider Pall’s SUPRApak™ filtration technology as a possible solution.
