Beer Clarification

The process of beer clarification historically utilised filtration. However, clarification is a much more efficient process that delivers a superior result. Therefore, beer or wort clarification is essential within any brewery production.

This process involves removing solids from the wort or beer to give a clear liquid. It is critical that beer clarification does not compromise your product's flavour or aroma during the process. For more information about how these clarifiers work, visit our dedicated page here.

There are many benefits to investing in a self-cleaning clarifier for your brewery. One of the primary benefits is the typical oxygen pick up of <10 ppb and return on investment. Find out more about the benefit of these wort and beer clarifiers here.


Seital Self-Cleaning Beer Clarifiers for Liquid/Solid Separation

The beer or wort clarifier allows the recovery of fine particles (0.5-500 µm) and/or a strong clarification of liquids by means of a very high peripheral centrifugal field (G-force).
