Abstract

The industrial filtration of juice was investigated at E&J Gallo Winery in the Process Technology Research and Development Group. Concepts from filtration literature, chemical engineering principles, and industry practices were integrated to design, construct, and iteratively improve the performance of a small-scale bench-top filtration test. This new test improved the predictive power of the filterability of wine and juice on an industrial scale.
