From EC 1935/2004 to VPHP Resistance - How to select the right filtration solution for Food & Beverage

For almost every application in the food and beverage industry the market offers a broad variety of different filter devices and filtration solutions to select from. New technology trends like the VPHP sterilization or new legal requirements like the EC/10/2011 have even increased the portfolio of applicable products.

The right selection of filtration equipment has a significant influence on operational safety, installation design and investment and running costs. Therefore, clear criteria for the selection of alternative filtration approaches are needed.

Within this Webinar Donaldson will show you how to select the right sterile air, steam or liquid filter for your critical application. The most important criteria such as

• Documentary
• Filter types
• Purity & retention levels
• Differential pressure
• Dirt holding capacity

will be explained and their potential impact on the cost of ownership displayed.
