Filtration

FILTRATION-Title-picture

A.O. Wilson has 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. For you, as a customer nothing has changed;

  • We supply the same excellent quality products manufactured in Germany
  • We provide the best possible feedback on your filtration queries
  • We stock a large selection of filtration media in different lines, sizes and grades for immediate shipping
  • Large distributor’s network available for support ( information, inventory etc.)

Eaton combines worldwide engineering, manufacturing and customer service into one focused business objective: To provide optimum manufacturing of industrial filtration solutions.

We carry the following three main categories of Eaton’s depth filtration media for the beverage industry;

Depth Filter Sheets

Depth-filter-sheetsHigh-purity, finely fibrillated cellulose fibers form the support structure of Eaton’s depth filter sheets and provide a large internal surface. Different perlite qualities ensure a voluminous, asymmetric pore structure and thus a large dirt holding capacity.

Conventional depth filter sheets with different clarifying sharpness and unfiltrate volume offer specifically tailored filtrate quality in all filtration ranges. Due to its structure, diatomite has very good filter characteristics. The quantity and type of the diatomite processed determines the clarifying sharpness and the throughput rate.

We break down the depth filter sheets in the following categories:

Activated Carbon Sheets

Carbon-sheet-croppedEaton’s BECO® ACF 07 depth filter sheet is used for the demanding filtration of liquids in the chemical, pharmaceutical, and food industries as well as in bio-technical processes.

Eaton’s BECO ACF 07 activated carbon depth filter sheets are a microporous inert material, which is acid-washed and steam activated. When products are cleaned or decolorized, a physical bond is created between the interior surfaces of the activated carbon and the unclean or colored substances. Since this bond is largely non-polar, there is a great affinity to organic molecules.

Advantages:

  • High adsorption power of decolorizing and aroma correcting
  • Complex fiber and cavity structure with a large interior surface for a widest possible range of applications and operating conditions
  • Eaton’s BECO ACF 07 depth filter sheets are easy to use and allow dust-free handling

Applications Include:

  • Decolorizing of chemicals and oils
  • Decolorizing watery and alcoholic extracts
  • Filtering of glucose, enzyme, vitamin, and antibiotic solutions
  • Treating cosmetics
  • Taste and color correcting beverages, spirits, and fruit juices

Filter Sheets Europor

Eaton’s BECO depth filter sheets of the Europor and Select A range were developed to meet the exacting requirements in the filtration of liquids.

Europor Line Standard DE sheets

The filter sheets of this series cover a complete range of filtration grades from 4.5 µm to 0.1 µm nominal rating.

In this way specific retention efficiencies can be selected for particular filtration applications.

Advantages:

  • Ideal pore structure for reliable retention of the components to be separated
  • Use of high-quality raw materials for high clarification performance
  • Economic service life through high dirt holding capacity
  • Comprehensive quality control of all raw and auxiliary materials

STERILE

Microbe Reduction and Removal

Europor K40, K60 and K70 – BECO depth filter sheets with a high germ retention rate.

These sheet types are particularly suitable for cold-sterile bottling or storing of liquids. The high germ retention rate is achieved through the fine-pored structure of the BECO depth filter sheet and an electro kinetic potential with an adsorptive effect. Due to their high retention capacity for colloidal ingredients, these sheet types are particularly suitable as prefilters for subsequent membrane filtration.

FINE FILTRATION, GERM REDUCTION

Microbe Reduction and Fine Filtration

Europor K12, K15 and K30 – BECO depth filter sheets for achieving a high degree of clarification.

These sheet types reliably retain ultra-fine particles and have a germ-reducing effect, making them particularly suitable for haze-free filtering of liquids prior to storing and bottling.

CLARIFYING, GERM REMOVAL

Clarifying Filtration and Coarse Filtration

Europor K1, K2, K3, K5, K7 and K10 – BECO depth filter sheets with large-volume cavity structure.

These depth filter sheets have a high holding capacity for particles and are especially suitable for clarifying filtration applications.

Please refer to the Europor sheet booklet for in depth information, flow rates and micron ratings.

BECOPAD Sheets

BECOPAD-Success-story-pictureAt A.O. Wilson Ltd. we care about a greener tomorrow. We are very proud to offer the only, unsurpassed mineral free filter sheet on the market today:

BECOPAD®

Eaton’s BECOPAD depth filter sheet is a mineral-free depth filtration system for a wide range of applications, including coarse and sterile filtration. In a special process, high-purity celluloses cross-link to form a unique structure that requires no inorganic ingredients for sterile filtration. BECOPAD® depth filter sheets are characterized by maximum purity. The content of ions, flushable or sensory relevant substances is lower than in all conventional depth filter sheets.

Eaton’s pure BECOPAD depth filter sheet is available for non-critical industrial and non-pharmaceutical processes where the main focus is on maximum filtration outputs combined with optimal clarification and highest particle retention capacity.

The filtration principle is mainly based on mechanical separation of particles because of their size. The very low cationic charge reduces the degree of charge-specific adsorption and thus, desirable beneficial ingredients remain in the final product. Eaton’s BECOPAD depth filter sheets provide excellent filtration quality and maximize filtration throughput for chemical applications demanding high dirt holding capacity and high chemical resistance. Let us demonstrate it for you.

BECOPAD-principleFiltration

  • Higher number of cycles (longer service life)

Stacked Disc Cartridges by EATON

Stacked Disc Cartridges by Eaton

BECODISC ® STACKED DISC Cartridges with BECOPAD sheets inside.

Stacked disc cartridges 1The individual cartridge cells are made up using BECOPAD depth filter sheets and the outer edge of two of these depth filters, whose outlet side is in contact with a drainage plate, is coated with polypropylene and sealed. Depending on the cartridge type, a different number of stacked filter cells forms a cartridge unit, which is safely held together by the three-part segmented sleeve made from stainless steel. Sealing between the filter cells is via accurately fitting intermediate profile rings. When installed, the segmented sleeve made from stainless steel ensures excellent mechanical sealing of the module. The occurrence of bypass effects is therefore eliminated.

Only depth filter media manufactured according to the bepure process are used in BECODISC stacked disc cartridges. Developed in-house the bepure process enables a mineral-free sterile filtration. This process cross-links high-purity celluloses to form a unique structure that requires no organic ingredients for sterile filtration and the depth filter media is characterised by maximum purity. The content of ions, flushable or sensory relevant substances is lower than in conventional stacked disc cartridges.

Advantages:

  • Maximum purity
  • Mineral-free, therefore low ion content
  • 20 % higher performance
  • Reduced pre-rinse volumes
  • Increased strength of the depth filter media used versus conventional depth filter sheets
  • Rinsing volume reduced by 50 %, resulting in reduced process costs
    Very good chemical and mechanical resistance
  • Low charge-related adsorption
  • Virtually no ash content, therefore optimum ashing
  • No undesirable affects to the product
