FCWPS Capsule Filters High Capacity PES Membrane Applications Wine Process Water Clean in Place Solutions Aseptically Packaged Liquids Bottled Water FCWPS capsule filters are hydrophilic and manufactured with high capacity polyethersulfone (PES) membrane. The proprietary membrane casting process creates a thick membrane with high contaminant holding capacity, excellent retention characteristics and high flow rates. E xcellent flow rates with excellent retention characteristics Remove organic contaminants from wine, beer, bottled water High capacity PES membrane is particularly suited for the filtration of products that contain elements that can adsorb to media, such as flavor elements and proteins. The lower binding characteristics of PES avoid adsorption and make it a good choice for filtration of beer and wine. P rotect processes by removing organic contaminants from water, CIP solutions Low product adsorption to preserve flavor FCWPS Capsule Filters - Filtration Area Capsule Length High Capacity PES Membrane Flow Rate / Filtration Area The following table represents typical water flow at a one psi (69 mbar) pressure differential across a single 2 inch capsule with 1.0 ft² (930 cm²) of media with 1/2” FNPT ports. The test fluid is water at ambient temperature. Higher pressure drops are acceptable, but as flows increase the pressure drop of the housing becomes more apparent. 0.22 μm Pore Size * For approximate flow rates for 5” through 30” capsules, refer to the appropriate cartridge data sheet Construction Materials Maximum Operating Parameters Liquid Operational Pressure Filtration Media High Capacity Polyethersulfone (PES) Membrane Gases Operational Pressure Operating Temperature Media Support Forward Differential Pressure 50 psid (3.4 bard) at 20 °C (68 °F) Center Core Reverse Differential Pressure Outer Support Cage Sealing Method Thermal Bonding Recommended Changeout Pressure Food and Beverage Grade FCWPS capsules are used to remove organic and other contamination in the critical clarification and filling filtration processes for wine, beer, bottled water and aseptically packaged products. FCWPS capsules also see service in removing organic and other contaminants from process water and clean in place solutions used in piping and other systems.
