Filtration of the drink is necessary primarily to increase the shelf life of the drink.
During the filtration, yeast, bacteria, suspended particles, various mutating impurities, third-party flavours, are removed from the drink and the beverage becomes transparent.
The company "Medovarus" uses two types of filtration:
- Kieselguhr filter;
- MMS filter.
For beverages with a short shelf life, it is more efficient to use a kieselguhr filter. Kieselguhr (diatomite) filter is a filter in which filtration occurs through an auxiliary kieselguhr filter medium. Kieselguhr - a natural fossil, formed from ancient unicellular infusorial algae - diatomites. It has an excellent ability to retain a variety of suspensions.
For drinks with a long shelf life, filtration through the MMS filter is used additionally. MultiMicroSystem (MMS) - filtration allows to avoid temperature processing of the finished beverage and use the method cold sterilization of beverages with maximum preservation of their food and biological value, which undoubtedly improves the quality of products. Additional de-aeration that occurring at the product's inlet / outlet facilitates less contact of beverages with oxygen, which contributes to increased shelf life, reduced oxidation processes in the finished product and the conservations of the antioxidants.
