Depth Filtration


Pall’s unique depth filter technologies, developed specifically to meet the challenging requirements of distilled spirits filtration, can bring sustainable value to your production process.


Activated Carbon


Powdered activated carbon (PAC) is used widely in the food and beverage industry for adsorption applications. The use of bulk PAC has significant drawbacks relating to handling bulk carbon powder, cleaning of the process equipment and time and costs associated with carbon removal. The new Seitz® AKS FB immobilized carbon filter media addresses these concerns by incorporating activated carbon within a matrix of cellulosic fibers. This immobilized carbon media can be coupled with a downstream protective filter paper to prevent carbon particle shedding downstream of the filter.
