Cadalpe C41A Cross Flow Filter automatic for small to medium wineries
The Cross Flow models “C41A” represent the latest development by Cadalpe in automatic filtration for the small to medium sized production. The distinct advantages of these models are:
Polypropylene membranes with 1.2mm diameter capillaries and a surface area of 12.5mtsq per module which are proven to the best suited especially for red wines in Australia and of course white wines.
Compact design with easy maneuverability means it can be tucked away neatly while working or while in storage.
Inert Gas Injection ensures minimal oxygen pickup, and evacuation of residues, water and cleaning soultions within the filter.
Touch Screen PLC and pneumatic valves provides full automation for the filtration cycles of usually 24 - 30 hours, but can be longer dependant on the filterability of the product.
Installed dosing pumps (for chemical wash), solenoid valves for the hot & cold water entry and the washing tank provide an automated washing cycle (initiated by the operator at the PLC screen).
Now there is also an option to have the washing cycle automatically initiated by the PLC at the completion of the filtration cycle ensuring the filter will be ready for the next tank when the operator walks back in at the start of the day.
Specific Pumps for entry (feed), trans-membrane pressure, washing and filtered product exit.
On the C41-A the first buffer tank collects the back flushes cycles and also acts as a washing vessel after the fitration cycle.
A major differenc of the Cadalpe unit features a second buffer tanks wheich receives the filtered product and with a connected pump transfers it back to the cellar or bottling room.
A pre-filter, placed at the entry of feeding and washing pump, equipped with removable metallic cartridge having a passage opening of 150µm. There is also another pre-filter, placed at the entry of the washing water, with removable polypropylene cartridge having a passage opening of 1µm.
