Filtering the Options: Types of Filtration Products for Beer, Wine, and Cider

Filtration is an essential task in the making of beer, wine, and cider, in order to achieve clarity and distribute the highest quality product to customers. As time has passed, filtration technologies available have increased and improved.

At A.O Wilson, we have been recognized as Canada’s #1 distributor of Eaton filtration products for more than 4 decades. A few years ago, Eaton Hydraulics acquired Germany’s leading filtration media supplier Begerow company, which further improved the products available through Eaton.

Although technologies have changed, for you, as a customer, nothing has changed. We continue to offer a wide variety of filtration products to help you produce the highest quality product.

Filter Cartridges

FineStream Series by EATON

Distinguished by its combination of unparalleled depth filter cartridge retention ratings and a unique design that increases the filter area, this synthesis of the finest filter fleece and excellent filtration performance gives the best membrane protection.

The variable flow of Eaton’s BECO PROTECT FS pre-filter cartridge is also unique. This can be adjusted to flow from outside to inside or, if the inlet and outlet ends on the housing are reversed, from inside to outside. The filtering effect remains the same.
