Abstract

This WPI MQP project evaluated the impact of purchasing and installing an additional Pall Oenoflow Cross-flow XL Filter for the Gallo Winery Cellar in Modesto, California. During the project a demonstration model filter was operated and benchmarked on site to determine its filtration performance, and mainly the average flow rate, which was used to evaluate the economic feasibility of investing in a similar wine filtration system. Additionally the engineering framework for an online production dashboard to measure filter downtime and capacity was designed.
