Donaldson's LifeTec filtration line for food and beverage process filtration.
Donaldson's LifeTec filtration line for food and beverage process filtration.
Following two years of development by a team of chemists and materials scientists, Donaldson is now custom-manufacturing the filters at a new high-capacity cleanroom facility in Haan, Germany. The first large-scale customers include several Coca-Cola plants in Europe.
 
Manufacturers of dairy products, bottled water, soft drinks, wine, and beer will benefit from three main advancements in the new line of process filters. They are: greater structural stability due to the rigid support cage structure which resists deformation; increased filtration media and high-performance materials.
 

The new process filters are available in configurations for nearly every application in the food and beverage industry, including sterilization and the downsizing of installation for equivalent performance. Filter lengths can be custom-produced from 10 to 40 inches and available filtration media include polyethersulfone (PES), polypropylene (PP), and polytetrafluorethylene (PTFE).
