With Pentair X-Flow membranes, benefit from:

  • Consistent beer quality.
  • Improved taste stability due to no iron pick-up.
  • Reliable blocking of yeast.
  • Reduction of beer spoiling bacteria.

  • Ban on hazardous Diatomaceous Earth (DE) dust.
  • Up to 50% lower solid waste in the brewery.
  • Low water usage.
  • Lower CO2 footprint.
  • Lower beer loss.
  •  Straightforward process.
  • Unique start-stop procedure.
  • No centrifuge utilized.
  • Ideal for brand changes.
  • Suitable for batch & continuous filtration processing
  • Easy to expand.
  • Comparable capital expenditures
  • Low operational expenditures
  • Less disposal costs.
  • Fully automated.
  • No storage handling and logistics of DE.


Key benefits of Pentair X-Flow Beer Hollow Fiber Membrane Technology include:

  • Optimized pore size distribution for a reliable blocking of yeast and strong reduction of beer spoiling bacteria
  • Ideal polymer for food contact, cleaning chemicals and high temperatures
  • Iron pick-up free so a clearly better taste stability


Iron pickup is prevented when use of diatomaceous earth filter-aid is avoided, reducing the aging process and thereby improving the taste stability of beer. 

The use of membranes brings with them a more sustainable way of working.  
Unlike kieselguhr which is single-use, membranes are resuable and last several years, this results in a lower CO2 footprint.
The harmful disposal of filter media waste is also no longer needed.
