Wine Filtration - Spanish Language Version


This course will be held in Spanish

Build a strong foundation for solving filtration problems and choosing filtration systems for particular applications by combining theory of filtration with online lab exercises and real-time manufacturer demonstration videos. Designed for members of the wine industry, this intensive program emphasizes online group participation in lab-scale filtrations to apply concepts learned in lectures.

Lecture topics include an overview of filtration systems, determining filtration efficiency, diatomaceous earth (DE) filtration, crossflow filtration and finding agents for clarification prior to filtration. Lab demonstrations include sessions on pre-filtration treatments and effects on filterability, microbiological detection, flow rates through variously sized membranes, determining pump characteristics and pressure/flow relationships, and plotting silting efficiency data. Demonstrations include DE systems, membrane filtration systems, sterile pad filtrations and a crossflow system.
