2 Stage Filtration

Double or two stage filtration is now more common. Typically the first stage uses a "roughing" sheet for removal of larger particulate matter. The second stage uses a filter sheet from our speciality "XS" range. These achieve a high level of polish or clarity in blended products. It is very important to avoid any surging or pressure shocks whilst filtering whisky because there is a build up of viscous oils on the surface of the filter sheet and excess flow rates or significant variations in pressure may force these oils through the pores of the sheet.
