This operation allows the elimination of the last insoluble parts in order to obtain a clear and bright juice.


A Kieselguhr vertical plate filter is used. With this process, filtration can be either rough or fine, even poor in germs. This depends on the filtration minerals used and the rhythm of work. The filter is made of a stainless steel lattice (reps) retaining filtration minerals and letting the product flowing through the filter. Before the filtration starts, a layer of diatoms is obtained on the reps and during filtration, the product is constantly supplied with filtration minerals. The product is then clarified while crossing the mineral layer.
