The Padovan Nitor Cross-Flow Filtration System:
Each “Module” (3 membranes + pump) can be isolated from other modules if needed, E.g. if the volume of wine to be filtered did not require that the entire surface area of the system be used or if a membrane was suspected of being faulty.
Back-flushing of the membranes is needed to maintain the filtrate flux over the length of the filtration. The frequency of this operation is related directly to the particular wine being filtered. The frequency of back-flushing is determined by the operator and once programmed is carried out fully automatically by the Padovan system.
The automation of the Padovan NITOR Cross-Flow Filtration System is controlled by a touch-screen user interface: This touch-screen is in full color and is available in bi-lingual configurations
