The Synox 2.0 PS is an especially developed version of our market-leading kieselguhr candle filters, and uses the same robust and reliable, patented Stabox candles.  

Recognising the serious shortcomings of “traditional” horizontal pressure-leaf PVPP filters, the Synox PS is based on two decades of positive experience with candle filters. The new and patented inlet distributor allows superior flow control. 

Higher reliability: 
  • Stable and long-life filter elements (non-fouling, welded, steel wedge-wire lasting 15+ years without deterioration) 

  • Simple and reliable process concept (constant hydraulic conditions) 

  • No moving parts and few elastomer seals 

Lower operating costs: 
  • Lower PVPP losses compared to horizontal leaf filters – short regeneration and total downtimes 

  • Infrequent, semi-skilled maintenance 

  • High productivity and low specific costs 

  • Lower investment costs compared to horizontal leaf filters: 

  • Special foundations not needed 

  • Optimised (smaller & simpler) design 

  • Reduced first charge (fill) of PVPP 

The Synox 2.0 PS is designed for economical treatment of beer and other beverages by using regenerable PVPP to achieve a long shelf-life, where the PVPP is regenerated in situ. Expensive sacrificial (single-use) PVPP is eliminated. Even for moderate production capacities, the required investment can be amortised in a short time-scale.
