Product viscosity significantly impacts filtration processes, including those involving HiFlux filters. Here are some key points to consider:

👉 Flow Rate and Pressure Drop

Fluids with higher viscosity resist flow more than low-viscosity fluids, leading to a slower filtration rate. The increased resistance requires higher pressure to maintain a constant flow rate through the filter. Lower-viscosity fluids flow more easily through filters, allowing for higher flow rates with less pressure.

👉 Filter Fouling and Efficiency

Thick fluids can lead to quicker fouling of the filter medium as particles are less likely to be carried away by the flow. This results in a reduced filtration efficiency and more frequent cleaning or replacement of the filter. Lower-viscosity fluids can transport particles more efficiently through the filter medium, potentially reducing fouling and extending filter life.

👉 Pore Size and Permeability

High Viscosity Fluids require filters with larger pore sizes or more permeable materials to achieve a reasonable flow rate. However, larger pores might compromise the filtration quality. Low Viscosity Fluids can be effectively filtered through finer pores, achieving higher filtration precision without significant pressure drop.

👉 Temperature Control

Since viscosity is temperature-dependent, maintaining optimal temperature is crucial. Higher temperatures typically reduce viscosity, improving flow rate and filtration efficiency.

👉 Filter Selection and Design

The filter material must be compatible with the fluid’s viscosity to avoid degradation or reduced performance. For high-viscosity products, specialised filters like those from HiFlux Filtration incorporate advanced materials or designs to handle increased pressure and fouling potential.

👉 HiFlux Filters are designed to manage various fluid viscosities by:

  1. Using durable, high-permeability materials that maintain structural integrity under high-pressure conditions.
  2. Implementing unique structural features to enhance flow dynamics and reduce fouling, even with high-viscosity fluids.

The viscosity of a product directly influences the efficiency, pressure requirements, and maintenance frequency of filtration processes. For high-viscosity fluids, specialised solutions like those from HiFlux Filtration A/S can optimise performance by addressing the specific challenges posed by increased resistance and fouling.

Hygienic fluid processing and non-hygienic fluid processing differ significantly in terms of equipment design, operational standards, cleanliness requirements, and the industries they serve. Here are the key differences between hygienic and non-hygienic fluid processing applications:

Equipment Design and Materials:

Hygienic Fluid Processing: Equipment used in hygienic fluid processing, such as pumps, valves, tanks, and pipelines, are designed with smooth, crevice-free surfaces, sanitary seals, and hygienic materials like stainless steel or food-grade plastics. These designs minimise the risk of bacterial growth, facilitate easy cleaning and sterilisation, and prevent contamination of the processed fluids.

Non-Hygienic Fluid Processing: In non-hygienic applications, equipment may not have the same level of surface finish, sealing, or material requirements. While still durable and functional, non-hygienic equipment may not be suitable for applications where cleanliness and product integrity are critical.

Cleanliness and Sterilisation:

Hygienic Fluid Processing: Hygienic processing requires stringent cleanliness and sterilisation protocols to ensure product safety and compliance with regulatory standards. Equipment and pipelines are regularly cleaned, sanitised, and sterilised using approved methods and chemicals to prevent microbial contamination and ensure product quality.

Non-Hygienic Fluid Processing: While cleanliness is still important in non-hygienic processing, the level of cleaning and sterilisation may not be as rigorous or standardised. Non-hygienic applications may focus more on functionality and process efficiency rather than strict hygiene requirements.

Industry Standards and Regulations:

Hygienic Fluid Processing: Industries such as food and beverage, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, cosmetics, and healthcare adhere to strict hygienic standards and regulations (e.g., FDA, EHEDG, 3-A Sanitary Standards). Equipment used in hygienic processing must meet these standards to ensure product safety, quality, and compliance.

Non-Hygienic Fluid Processing: Non-hygienic applications may not be subject to the same level of industry-specific standards and regulations related to cleanliness and hygiene. However, they still need to meet general safety, environmental, and operational standards.

Risk of Contamination:

Hygienic Fluid Processing: The primary concern in hygienic processing is to minimise the risk of microbial contamination, cross-contamination, and product spoilage. Equipment design, cleaning protocols, and operational practices focus on maintaining a hygienic environment throughout the fluid processing chain.

Non-Hygienic Fluid Processing: While contamination risks still exist in non-hygienic applications, they may not be as critical or closely monitored compared to hygienic processing. Non-hygienic processes may deal with a broader range of fluids, including non-food-grade materials or non-sterile substances.

In summary, the main differences between hygienic and non-hygienic fluid processing lie in equipment design, cleanliness standards, industry regulations, and the level of risk management regarding microbial contamination. Hygienic processing prioritises product safety, quality, and regulatory compliance, while non-hygienic processing may focus more on operational efficiency and functionality.

At ITS, our commitment to excellence extends beyond just delivering quality products; it encompasses ensuring the smooth functioning of our customers production area and equipment.

Recently, we embarked on an annual service visit, focusing on the customers main production area and CIP (Clean in Place) skid for their renowned “graze” products.

Building on last years’ service in January, our team conducted a thorough assessment of the equipment’s condition, particularly the seals, to determine if the servicing schedule could be extended based on their performance after a year of use. Collaborating with our Benlink partners, we embarked on a 5-day service mission, encompassing various tasks to optimise their production infrastructure.

During this comprehensive service, we maintained a range of equipment including 72 valves, 2 centrifugal pumps, 3 twin-screw pumps, 3 steam traps, and 3 steam float valves. It’s worth noting that while much of the equipment was Alfa Laval, our expertise extend to servicing other brands as well, allowing us to address the entirety of the system’s needs.

Over the course of five days, our team meticulously serviced the equipment, assessing the quality and condition of wearable parts, and providing invaluable insights to the customer. We created a detailed service log for the customer, aiding them in evaluating their next service interval. Additionally, we identified potential design changes, such as separating flush systems for twin-screw pumps to prevent blockages and premature seal failures.

We also highlighted issues such as broken fixings and supports, which could potentially compromise the integrity of the system. By recommending necessary repairs and adjustments, we ensured that the production process would continue smoothly, without risking any disruptions or equipment failures.

Following the service, we conducted rigorous testing of the system with CIP to ensure its integrity and functionality. The results were outstanding—all valves passed, and our customer has been operating seamlessly for the past month without any issues!

In addition to the on-site service, we provided an asset register of their equipment and a comprehensive service report detailing the condition of the seals. This valuable information empowers them to make informed decisions about future servicing, based on our recent assessment.

At ITS, our dedication to our customers goes beyond just servicing equipment; it’s about ensuring their operations run smoothly, efficiently, and with minimal downtime. With each visit, we aim to not only maintain but enhance the performance of their production systems, allowing them to focus on what they do best—delivering quality healthy snacks to their customers while  being mindful of the planet.

This Mouvex, a PSG brand SLS1 pump has been chosen by one of our customers for their low flow rate jam application where precision and consistency are crucial. Jam is being transferred from an IBC to a mixing vessel, requiring a pump that can ensure a steady flow despite the challenging conditions.

The Mouvex pump’s self-priming capability is particularly beneficial in this scenario, as the jam does not flow freely under gravity to reach the pump suction. Its seal-less design allows the customer to handle aggressive products without the need for a costly liquid flushed mechanical seal, which often presents weak points prone to failure.

Think this pump might suit your application? Take a look at the Mouvex SLS range in more detail:
