Bioscience and Water Filtration Division - Product Purge

Product Purge

Product purging involves the displacement of wine from tanks and pipes using compressed gas. Compressed gasses may harbour potentially harmful micro-organisms, which, if the product were to, could lead to product contamination.

Sterile filtration of the compressed gas ensures all purging of wine does not introduce bacteria to the product, maintaining the wines stability.

Parker Bioscience can work with you to identify the most appropriate filter selection for your product purge applications.  Our preferred choice of filters for product purge include HIGH FLOW BIO-X and HIGH FLOW TETPOR II products.  We also have the new Valairdata 3 automated integrity test instrument available.
