SUPRApak depth filtration enters a completely new generation with a unique flow configuration called “edge flow”. This cost-effective technology will revolutionize depth filtration in the food and beverage sector.

For over 100 years, filter sheets have been used in the food and beverage industry to filter liquids in classic plate and frame filters.

The unique filter matrix comprised of cellulose, diatomite and perlite combined with the surface, depth, and adsorptive filtration capabilities of filter sheets makes them an attractive option for a very wide range of applications.

Increased demand for environmentally compatible production processes and product quality in the food and beverage industry has intensified the need to seek out alternative filtration systems. At the same time, cost pressures demand that filter systems are simple to operate with low staffing costs.


  •  Increased process safety and product quality due to enclosed, hygienic system
  •  Increased process uptimes, as the edge flow principle can allow longer throughputs and use of the full capacity of the depth filter material
  •  High turbidity reduction due to increased particle adsorption capacity
  •  High yields due to low hold-up volume, drainability of the assembly, and elimination of product drip losses
  •  Cost savings on filter change-outs due to modular construction, no time-consuming insertion and stacking of individual filter sheets, and less handling in between production runs
  •  Reduced cleaning chemical and water costs due to compact design
  •  Small footprint due to high packing density and resulting large filtration area per unit
  •  Easy disposal of modules
  •  Low capital investment compared to classical plate and frame assemblies
  •  Secure operation without bypass due to external tensioning control
  •  Low maintenance costs due to absence of gaskets on modules and very limited number of housing seals
  •  Low total cost of ownership due to combined savings on unit filter area, yield, handling, cleaning, and maintenance, and increased production availability


  •  Particle filtration
  •  Colloidal removal
  •  Polishing filtration
  •  Final filtration


The SUPRApak filter design is an entirely new and unique configuration of filter sheet material, which sets a new standard for enclosed sheet filtration.

SUPRApak modules are based on classic depth filtration technology, and represent a perfect combination of the three filtration mechanisms: surface filtration, depth filtration and adsorption.

The main components are high purity cellulose, diatomite and perlite. Unique to the SUPRApak module is an entirely new depth filter flow configuration based on the “edge flow” principle. The filter sheet material contains feed and filtrate channels wrapped around a permeable core.

Straps are used to attach the sheet material to the core.

This design results in a compact dense package of high-quality filter sheet material. Thus the SUPRApak module meets the highest demands in terms of purity and clarity of the filtered product.
