Optimal Conditions for Use of PallSeitzSchenk® Filter Sheets in Beer Filtration


Flow Rate and Differential Pressure:

20x20cm Sheet:


Optimum bbl/hr/sheet
Maximum bbl/hr/sheet
Maximum Differential Pressure Tight
Tight Filtration
0.14
0.20
27 psi (1.8 bar)
Polishing Filtration

  • Effective filter area 3.58 sq.ft. (0.330 meter sq


Tight Filtrations: Throughput range 5 to 30 times maximum recommended flow rate with good prefiltration.

Polishing Filtrations: Normal for well-settled ales:
  • 20x20 – 0.45 bbl/sheet
  • 40x40 – 0.67 bbl/sheet
  •  60x60 – 1.50 bbl/sheet
* For Lagerbeers, expect a throughput volume/filter sheet of 2-3 times greater
