For over 30 years, CLARCOR Industrial Air pre and final filters have been used in the clarification, stabilization and sterilization of wine.
Proper selection and use of filtration is critical in the wine making process to ensure fine quality, provide consistent color and body, and to protect the distinctive subtleties of the vintage.

- Stabilization involves the removal of spoilage
organisms and the reduction of haze, turbidity, and

employ micro-fiber pre-filters, depth or pleated
cartridges and lenticular cartridges.
- Sterilization removes all remaining microbial contaminants
through the use of absolute rated, integrity tested pleated membrane filters.
This step is also referred to as final filtration and occurs just before the
