Filtering wine helps wine to be clearer, more aesthetically pleasing.
Structure of the wine filter
Wine container: The container is the part where the wine to be treated is poured. Each line of aldehyde-reducing alcohol purifiers will have a different container. They usually depend on the size of the machine.
Valves: The machine usually has two valves, one to discharge the waste and one to discharge the finished product after filtration.
Filters: Usually the machine will include 3 filter columns. The filter columns contain materials such as sand, gravel, cotton, activated carbon, etc. These materials help to retain the residues and some toxins in the wine.
Controller: On/off control, timer.
Working on a wine filter
- Step 1: Pour the wine to be treated into the container
- Step 2: The wine passes through the filters slowly. Impurities, residues, and a part of toxins in the wine will be absorbed and retained.
- Step 3: After filtering, the wine will flow into the finished valve.
The principle of an activated carbon alcohol purifier is to use the preeminent of activated carbon. This type of coal has the ability to absorb and absorb substances that are toxic to human health.
This method is easy to do, the initial cost is low. You can make your own at-home activated carbon alcohol purifier. You just need to buy filter columns at stores that sell water purifiers and assemble them.
- Although this method is easy to do, the initial installation cost is cheap, it has many disadvantages.
- Besides the detoxifying effect, this type of activated carbon also removes color. If you filter the wine with activated carbon in the alcohol filter, it can lose the color and characteristic aroma of the wine.
- During using process, you must regularly change the filter core. You have to change it every 3-6 months to make sure the filter is effective.
- After a filtration cycle, the amount of wine existed in the filter core. This can affect the quality of the wine when using two different filters. Besides, if we keep and unused for a long time, it can damage the filter core as well as give rise to bacteria.
- When filtering alcohol for a while, on the surface of the filter material, a microbial film (starch) will be formed. When starches are in a humid environment, they will ferment to produce bacteria. And when filtering alcohol, the wine will be contaminated with bacteria and unsanitary. Moreover, it will affect the taste and smell of the wine.
- Is the filter material in the filter columns such as sand, gravel, and activated carbon… really safe? Are these ingredients licensed by the Ministry of Health for solvent filtration?
- There are many types of activated carbon. But to filter aldehydes, not all coal can be used. Activated carbon that filters alcohol must be aged oak activated carbon to absorb aldehydes. This type of coal can only be imported from England, France, and Russia and is very expensive. So we ask the question of what is the activated carbon in the alcohol filter, can they filter aldehydes?
