TALK TO AN EXPERT

Combine innovation with tradition

From Bordeaux to Borassa, and from Mendoza to Napa, winemakers work with 3M filtration and dissolved gas control to consistently craft the finest wines year after year. 3M innovations include the dual-zone depth filter with a lenticular design: 3M™ Zeta Plus™ series and 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ membrane contactors for dissolved gas control.

We design systems to help producers improve their wine making process and we work with individual producers to define an ideal system for clarification, prefiltration and final filtration. This results in systems capable of reducing the total cost of filtration, while still focusing on efficiency and reliability.

Final filtration

Membrane filtration is the proven method to achieve microbiological stability without using chemicals or heat. This ensures that the organoleptic properties of the wine are preserved until opening the product, whether this occurs weeks, months or years after bottling. Microbiological stability, where undesirable yeast and bacteria are removed, is a vital characteristic for fine wines.

Gas control

Dissolved gas control in wine operations is critical to help maintain wine quality. Removing O2 improves shelf life with an undiscernible impact on wine sensory characteristics, and removing N2 can help reduce foaming, allowing you to warm-fill or run at faster line speeds. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors also enable wineries to rapidly and accurately adjust CO2 levels in-line.

Cross-flow filtration

The 3M™ MF-PP Series capillary membrane modules have a symmetrical porous membrane structure and a high specific filter area. This, combined with the low adsorption properties from polypropylene, makes the capillary membranes a reliable and economical alternative to conventional separation techniques used in the clarification of wine.

Particle control

Particulate can be generated in the winery in multiple places including after DE filtration, or on the water used to rinse the filters, tanks and bottling equipment. 3M offers several formats of particle control filters to meet the diverse needs of this application.
