The Importance of Bottled Water Filtration

Proper filtration systems are critical in ensuring the biological safety, quality, and shelf-life of the product, as well as protecting downstream equipment. To meet required water quality standards and remain competitive, systems must integrate several filtration processes to reduce particulates, remove microorganisms, and protect equipment. When a proper filter “train” is not installed, bacteria and particulate can impact flavor and overall quality which can be potentially harmful for human consumption.

Common particulates include sand, silt, and organic materials from the source water, as well as scale, rust, and other debris from transfer piping, hoses, and storage tanks. In addition, microorganisms can enter the bottled water process through contaminated carbon/sand beds, air/gas supply, and damaged piping/valves. A poorly designed filtration system will lead to frequent and unnecessary element changes, unsafe products, excessive downtime, and increased operating costs.

Typical Water Bottle Filtration Process

Water Bottle Filtration Process

Water Bottle Filtration Solutions

Sediment, Particulate, & Trap Filter Stages: 1, 2, 3, 7

Pleated Polypropylene – PP, PPE, HF Series

Pleated Microglass – FG, FGE Series

Polypropylene Meltblown – GWTB, GCTB. GATB Series

These filter cartridges remove large particulate from sediment filtration & protect carbon filter systems and increase carbon bed efficiency.

Bio-Burden Filter Stages: 5 & 9

Pleated Polypropylene – PP, PPE, HF Series

Pleated Microglass – FG, FGE Series

These filter cartridges remove fine particles and suspended organic matter and serve as pre-filtration to the bottling to filling prior to deionization.

Sterilizing Filter Stages: 6 & 10

Polyethersulfone (Hydrophilic) Membrane – GFPES (Food & Beverage Grade) & BRPES (Bio-Burder Reduction Grade)

These filter cartridge membranes reduce biological contaminants and serve as the final filtration bottling line prior to deionization.

Tank Filter Stages: 4 & 8

PTFE (Hydrophobic) Membrane – GGPTFE (General Grade) & PPTFE Series (Sterilizing Grade)

Polysulfone (Hydrophobic) Membrane – PSH Series

These filter cartridge membranes serve as tank vent filtration that allows for bacteria-free air to pass during filling and evacuation, protecting the storage tank and its contents from contamination.

Gas Filter Stages: 11

PTFE (Hydrophobic) Membrane – GGPTFE (General Grade) & PPTFE Series (Sterilizing Grade)

Polysulfone (Hydrophobic) Membrane – PSH Series

These filter cartridge membranes serve as gas filters during the bottling and packaging stage where CO2 or N2 is present.
