VLS Technologies is proud to announce that its Unico solution (an all-in-one filtration system for beverage and liquid foods), has been awarded the New Technology award at SIMEI 2017. It is an important international recognition for VLS Technologies and confirms the innovation of their cross-flow technology (following a 2015 award also for innovation in cross-flow technology). VLS Technologies’ CEO Jacopo Velo; “This recognition awards the know-how of our company, with more that 30-year experience in the filtration and treatment of liquids for the wine market. It also awards our courage in investing in research and innovation. In order to emerge in the global market, it is necessary to anticipate the needs of clients offering solutions capable of improving their product and efficiency’’.
The “Unico” filter is meant for small/medium producers who need to filter their products (wine and lees) with one solution only. It provides a high-quality filtrate with turbidity lower than 1 NTU. The filtering media used can withstand repeated regenerations with hot water and detergents. All models come in the semi-automatic or automatic version. In the latter, the PLC handles all the phases – filling, filtration, cleaning – and constantly monitors all parameters without any need for the operator’s intervention.
