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)
  • a 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.
