CO₂ Vapour polishing, multi-stage filtration for the beverage industry.
- Soft drinks
- Beer and cider drinks
- Mineral water
- Sparkling wine
Carbon Dioxide (CO₂) is a by-product of many different processes. Each source type can have source-specific impurities.
These should be removed by the industrial gas supplier during the purification process, but small traces can remain. Carbon Dioxide vapour is the only industrial gas used as an ingredient by the beverage industry. It has many uses, but the most important one is for carbonating the beverage. Without CO₂, our beverages would not sparkle.
Beverage brand owners and manufacturers protect their products and processes by requiring multi-stage CO₂ vapour polishing filtration systems.
Without this protection the finished beverage is at risk of being contaminated. This contamination can result in off-flavours, smells and appearance.
The beverage industry and its CO₂ suppliers set quality guidelines which are strictly followed to ensure the beverage is 100% safe.

Carbon Dioxide Purification
Improving Beverage Security and Quality via Protection of Carbonation CO₂.
Consistent high-quality CO₂ in carbonisation of beverages is important for product security of carbonated beverages.
Acting as vapour polishers, carbon dioxide purifiers are designed to purify gas to the beverage quality guidelines. The systems provide in-line quality protection against peak levels of trace contaminants that may occasionally be present in beverage grade carbon dioxide.
The unit’s capacity may be matched to the required process flowrate by adding or removing adsorption cartridges and columns. The protection unit is installed after the vaporiser and processes the CO₂ in its gaseous phase.
Insoluble matter suspended in the wine is removed before bottling. Clarification may include fining, filtration, centrifugation, flotation, refrigeration, pasteurization and/or barrel maturation and racking.
Passing wine through a filter medium that captures particles larger than the medium’s openings.
Whether for bottle washing, system flushing and sanitation or cooler blending, clean, particle free water is required to protect the integrity of the process system and optimise wine filter life.
Final membrane filtration
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) trap filtration
Filter that helps reduce hazes in soft drink concentrates.
Filtration that help reduce particulate and improve colour in sweeteners.
Filters that help control particulate prior to bottling.
Air and gas filtration
Taste and odour reduction
Rapid hygiene monitoring
- We use sample-ready plates that replace conventional agar, petri-dishes, media pads and disposable filter tunnels used in the microbial testing of water.
- We offer four options to cover your unique testing needs:
- Heterotrophic count
- Coliform count
- Enterobacteriaceae count
- Yeast and mould count
Water filtration/filter housings
Food & Beverage Filtration are used in various critical steps in beer production including water processing, diatomaceous earth (DE) trap, clarification, control of particulates, sterile air and gas service, and microorganism control in non-pasteurised beer.
