Semi-automatic cross-flow filter FTS-SA

Cross flow filtration is one of the most innovative and effective methods in the industrial processes of the food and wine sectors, and offers performances that none of the other solid-liquid separation processes can match.

The use of the tangential flow filter allows to obtain, in a single passage, the perfect clarification of the product, its microbiological stabilization, and the possible elimination of colloids and oxidizing enzymes, thus eliminating the need for any subsequent filtration steps or pasteurizations while making the product microbiologically stable. This reduces the handling of the product and the consequent loss and saves adjuvants and labor, with an overall reduction of costs and a greater protection of the initial qualities.

The Spadoni Tangential flow filter FTS-SA (F-24) is more efficient than the FTS Basic, as its start-up, management, and back washing cycles are fully automated. The system is available from 4 to 12 modules (hollow fiber or ceramic fiber), which guarantee microfiltration, polishing, and microbiological stabilization, without the use of adjuvants and additives. In the FTS-SA manual intervention is only necessary to set the recipe on the touch panel and to insert additives for cleaning the machine.

The full range of Spadoni’s cross-flow systems includes, in addition to the FTS-BE model, two other variants:


  • Wine
  • Brewing
  • Dairy

Tangential flow filter characteristics

  • structure fully built in 18-10 stainless steel (AISI 304);
  • feed pump and recirculation pump, with low rotation speed and large flow capacity;
  • backflush system for automatic periodic cleaning of the membranes during the process;
  • control instrumentation;
  • pressure transducers for maintaining PTM pressure;
  • sight glasses;
  • faucet for sampling;
  • flow indicator;
  • thermometer;
  • PLC panel with control unit;
  • pneumatic valves, for the automated management of the BFS.
