A.F.T. - DEVICE FOR EVALUATING THE FILTERABILITY CURVE

The filterability curve instrument is used whenever it is necessary to analyse products with a high contaminant load, which makes it impossible to perform the traditional filterability test (since the sample membrane would clog after a few millilitres of filtration).
 
ACRAM A.F.T. produces the characteristic filterability curve of a particular product in function of the clogging of the filtering units used.
The system allows the same filtration units of the cartridges used in the filtration process to be arranged in series.
A series of pressure gauges upstream and downstream of each filter enable the delta P to be ascertained.
Filtering with different combinations of units and micrometers allows you to choose the filter sequence that optimises the distribution of contaminants in the various filtration stages and to inspect the quality of the filtration itself.
 
By withdrawing samples downstream of each filter it will be possible to obtain a product sample for further analyses (e.g. turbidity).
The ACRAM tool for analysing the filterability curve can be provided with a complete manual set-up, or with software and digital precision scales for automating both the evaluation and processing of the data.
The ACRAM system can be used in the oenological, food and beverage sectors, whenever it is necessary to determine the filterability curve of a product.
Inserting the name of the wine (or product), sample, specific weight and any notes into the appropriate field thus completes compilation of the record sheet, which can then be printed and saved.
Thanks to its compact nature and ease of use, the ACRAM filterability-curve analysis tool can be placed anywhere and used by unskilled personnel.
