Our process includes nanofiltration/adsorptions followed by DETOX – a proprietary media based fullflow system designed for eliminating the ashy back-pallet character. VA Filtrations method of smoke taint reduction targets aroma and taste.

  • 1,700 to 4,000 Litres/hour
  • No internal recirculation
  • Minimal heat increase
  • Lower treatment pressure
  • On-site continuous supervision
