Filtration, filterability and facts
This webinar will provide an overview of filtration techniques, including the latest automated filtration systems. Wine filterability has been widely discussed over the last decade, yet there is no current Australian standard for measuring the filterability index (FI) of wine. Australian and New Zealand FI methods will be presented and critiqued. Measurement equipment will also be discussed. The correct interpretation of analyses will be covered, with caveats indicated, and some examples demonstrating the impact of certain wine additives on wine filterability will be offered. The use of FI analyses to monitor the performance of crossflow filtration equipment will be presented, with case studies discussed.
