Alcohol after distillation always contains a large amount of aldehydes. This substance is the enemy of the body. Therefore, you need to filter alcohol to reduce aldehydes before using. So what is the best, highly effective way to remove aldehydes?
When drinking, alcohol first enters the blood, affects the brain, causes inhibition in the cerebral cortex. This leads to loss of control over behavior and speech. More severe then respiratory depression. If you drink too much alcohol, you can cause death due to alcohol poisoning. Because they can affect the area of the brain that controls basic life-support functions like breathing, heart rate, etc.
Manifestations when you have alcohol poisoning is the body begins to react with nausea, loss of control, loss of coordination of movements, miscellaneous speech. These manifestations can be called drunkenness but are actually alcohol poisoning.
Each person’s body will have a different tolerance to alcohol. There are people who drink 1 liter but still do not get alcohol poisoning. For those who are not used to drinking alcohol, their tolerance or tolerance is not good, just 200ml is enough.
Alcohol becomes toxic in the presence of aldehydes
If the drinker uses alcohol of clear origin. The product is tested to ensure hygiene and safety, but alcohol poisoning (drunk) is very common, but not scary. The most dangerous is alcohol poisoning due to industrial alcohol or impurities.
The case of alcohol will become toxic when it is mixed with impurities, the most frightening of which is Andehit. This substance is derived from alcohol converted to under the catalysis of copper oxide, especially the places where cooking with copper pots.
At that time, when aldehydes enter the body, they cause headaches, dizziness, and memory disorders. More severe causes coma, liver failure, acute kidney and death. Therefore, when using alcohol, you need to filter alcohol to reduce aldehydes before using. This both ensures safety for users and helps alcoholic beverages become soft, not harsh, and not shocking.
Structure of the alcohol filter to remove aldehydes
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 fast 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 filters. The filters contain materials such as sand, gravel, cotton, activated carbon, etc. These materials help to retain residues and some toxins in alcohol.
Controller: On/off control, timer.
The operation of the aldehyde reducing alcohol purifier
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.
Alcohol filtration technology is a physical technology. The essence of wine filtration is to let the wine flow through the filter columns. The filter columns usually contain activated carbon, sand, gravel, cotton, etc.
The wine filter can make the wine clean the residue in the wine thanks to the layers of sand, gravel… Bring the aesthetics to your drink.
After filtering, drinking alcohol will be quieter because activated carbon absorbs part of the toxins in the alcohol.
Disadvantages of aldehyde removal alcohol purifier
Activated charcoal has the property of absorbing toxins and when it is absorbed enough it will saturate and have no absorption effect anymore.
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 unsanitary bacteria. Moreover, it will affect the taste and smell of the wine.
Is the filter material in the filter column such as sand, gravel, 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 to filter 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?
If you use a non-standard and-de-aldehyde alcohol filter, it can lose the flavor of the wine and reduce the alcohol content of the wine.
