Beer contamination is possibly one of the worst outcomes. Bacteria and wild yeast can ruin your entire barrel, producing 'off' flavours and aromas, hazy colouration and films. 3M microporous membrane filters are an advanced alternative to non-sterile filtration and offers microbiological control in non-pasteurised beer without impacting on flavour. 3M sterile membrane filtration yields a clear glass, and preserves the organoleptic properties, ensuring a clean taste weeks, months, or years after filling.
The LifeASSURE™ BA series filter cartridge helps produce clean, delicious beer by reducing contamination from yeast, moulds and spoilage microorganisms that can foul its taste and appearance. This robust Nylon 6,6 membrane is neutral to the brewing process and can also overcome issues with hop oil affinity. These cartridges offer excellent flow, low pressure drop and a long service life.
For optimised prefiltration protection to extend the life of your final filter, the LifeASSURE™ BLA series filter cartridge could be the perfect solution. This 6,6 Nylon, multi-zone microporous membrane cartridge utilises advanced pleat technology construction, as well as employing an exceptionally long service life.
