    Filtering herbal macerations (Fernet)

    You always have to filter as it is going to presented in the bottle. Never filter before and then add something later. I'd be glad to help you, Alex

    Filtering / Separation of Colloids (Liqueurs)

    You may have to chill it and filter it in order to get the haze out. Chilling causes the separation which in turn allows the filter to remove the haze forming particles. Should not effect any flavors or colors at this stage. If you have more questions, feel free to ask, Alex

    Filter press for dewatering

    Lets be honest here, none of the screen technologies are going to offer a dewatered cake like the filter press mentioned above.....

    It's not a function of fluid dynamics theory. It's a mechanical filtration function.

    Filtering / Separation of Colloids (Liqueurs)

    Greg, By pulling (or suction) on a filter, the particles you are removing with more or less "lay" on the filtration media. If you push through (pressure) you will get better use of the filtration media as you will force debris to be bound in the media. Suction causes premature failure of a filter cartridge. Pressure allows more debris to be imbedded into the actual filter media. If you send me your email, I can forward what I can help with on your haze issue. Thanks, Alex

    Pre bottling filter recommendation.

    The type of filtration they are discussing here will have zero effect on color or flavor. Alex

    Filtering / Separation of Colloids (Liqueurs)

    Also, the types of filtration you are discussing here are not the best for haze removal. Thanks, Alex

    Filtering / Separation of Colloids (Liqueurs)

    I definitely would NOT pull through a filter. Putting the filter on the suction side of a pump with net you less gallons through. Filters are designed to flow one way typically and that is to have the liquid pushed through it. If anyone needs any help with this, I'd be glad too. Thanks, Alex

    Filter press for dewatering

    I'm a little late on this but thought I would throw in my two cents. I was recently at one of my customers in Tennessee that has a Russel. They are very unsatisfied with it. Have broken multiple screens, etc. They also told me they have no local rep for the product line so getting technical advice is also a challenge. If anyone wants to discuss options for this application, I would be glad to help. Thanks, Alex

    Do you still need help with this? Do you currently own a plate and frame filter?

    Filtration plant

    Metals like that are typically used to control bacteria which is usually not an issue with Vodka due the higher proof.
