Air Filtration in Beverage Production

Beverage Production

Protect product integrity and your brand with a complete portfolio of air filtration products for sensitive bottled beverage processing – for extended shelf life and a better consumer experience.

Consumers today are demanding more bottled beverages. Health-conscious consumers are also demanding more organic drinks that promote good health. And the beverage industry, with good reason, is strictly regulated. Bottlers and brand owners must avoid the risks of potential contamination at production facilities to protect public health.

Certified air filtration systems critical for aseptic processing

In aseptic processing and packaging, a sterile product is filled into sterilized containers followed by hermetical sealing with a sterilized closure, in an environment free from microorganisms. So whether you’re bottling water, fresh juices or energy drinks, you are dealing with a sensitive aseptic process along with a high-moisture environment.

All filling lines should not demonstrate viable presence of organisms on or in the bottle during filling and capping. The conveying line should be under HEPA filtration to protect the open product from any contaminants that may be present during the bottling process.

With proper air filtration, you can:

  • Reduce the risk of microbiological contamination throughout aseptic processes
  • Maintain a consistent taste and quality in the finished product
  • Safeguard consumers and workers, processes, products and brand reputation
  • Comply with global food and beverage safety standards

Breathing easy inside a beverage facility

Outdoor air can carry up to 1,500 bacteria per cubic yard. So, even a small HVAC system with a capacity of 6,000 CFM can potentially take in up to 15 million bacteria every hour! This can seriously contaminate your beverage production.

When public health is at stake, national food health and safety agencies can recommend that the authorities enforce health policy measures. These can include the withdrawal and destruction of raw materials or products, or even a temporary shutdown of the negligent company’s production plant.
