Cold pressed rapeseed oil

Located in the UK, our customer is a well recognised producer of cold pressed rapeseed oil. The company markets the product under their own brand, but also supply various well known UK supermarkets with their own rapeseed oil lines. The cold pressed rapeseed oil plant already had an Amafilter® Versis® pressure leaf filter system installed on site for a number of years, which required minimal manual interventions due to its automated design, and the maintenance team was pleased with its performance. Due to increasing demand, the plant needed to double their cold pressed rapeseed oil production capacity, but had limited space available.The Amafilter® team recommended adding a second Versis® pressure leaf filter system, which only required a small footprint but would provide an additional 40m² of filtering area. The new system would operate separately and could be supplied and installed within the customer’s ambitious timescales.

As a result of the addition of a second Versis® pressure leaf filter system, the plant was able to increase their production capacity by up to 100%, ultimately increasing sales and profitability.

Sugar & Sweetners

Tereos TTD, Czech

The Amafilter® team is thrilled to be shipping four Cricketfilter® 1800WS automated systems to Tereos TTD in Czech, one of Europe’s leading producers of beet sugar.  Beet sugar production involves several crucial stages to deliver high-quality products. One of these stages is the filtration process, which is applied after obtaining thin juice from sugar beets. Thin juice contains an enormous amount of impurities, including pigments, proteins, and organic acids. Thus, filtration comes as a prerequisite procedure before the next stage of sugar processing, which involves second carbonation and sulphuration. The filtration process removes unwanted impurities and dirt from thin juice, ensuring the production of high purity sugar.
