Princen Brewery, the Netherlands
Annual production approx. 20,000 hl
Capacity of this BMF system is 30-60 hl/h
“We realized straight away that there was no going back to DE filtration.”
- Mark Schneider, director of Princen brewery
Pentair introduced the world’s first commercial large-scale BMF system for DE-free beer membrane filtration in 2002. Since then, more than 100 BMF systems have been commissioned that currently filter 100 million hl of beer annually. With the introduction of the BMF +Flux Compact S4 Pentair offers craft and small breweries major advantages compared to DE filtration. In addition to eliminating the negative aspects of DE, BMF provides the flexibility of true start/stop filtration, a fully automated process, and a constantly high microbiological safety.
Schneider is pleased with making the move to Pentair’s BMF +Flux Compact S4. “Membrane filtration has made our beer much fresher and lighter,” he said. “Our analyses show this just as clearly as the positive feedback from the market.”
