Chocolate manufacturer Barry Callebaut has selected a specially developed stainless steel Pure-Screen duplex filter system and frame from Axium Process to ensure a consistently filtered product.

The Pure-Screen duplex filter system and frame is completely jacketed to ensure the product temperature will be maintained to close limits.

The duplex filter system, which utilises a combination of stainless steel wedge-wire and mesh filter screens, is designed to offer high product security as well as a consistently filtered product.

Axium’s range of 316L stainless steel Pure-Screen wedge-wire filters is being used throughout the confectionery, food, beverage, cosmetics, and pharmaceutical industries.

It is ideally suited for liquid viscous products such as chocolate, yoghurt, butter, soft cheese, creams and sauces as the wedge-wire filter elements remove unwanted particles and blend and mix any non-dissolved materials in suspension, resulting in a consistently smooth product throughout every batch.

The Pure-Screen filter, which is available with a range of interchangeable filter elements from 25-6,000 micron, is manufactured in accordance with ASME-BPE principles and has material traceability to BS EN 10204 (3.1).

For companies requiring full traceability, Axium Process also provides certification for weld logging, weld mark up, internal and external surface roughness, pressure test, passivation and ferroxyl testing.

Axium Process’s range of filters include a shorter, more compact version of the Pure-Screen wedge-wire standard filter designed specifically for low flow applications or installation in confined spaces; the Fine-Screen mesh filter range, which is designed for finer particulate applications requiring filtration levels below 75 micron; and the Econ-Screen perforated sheet filter range, which is designed for coarse filtration or as a ‘last chance’ filter.
