We have learnt through the past several years working with vineyards throughout Australia how importantly our drinking water and reuse systems contribute to a winery’s performance and operational needs.
Ultrafiltration system delivered in less than one week
After their water treatment plant was destroyed in floods, Mitchelton Wines reached out to FILTEC for assistance. FILTEC delivered, installed and commissioned a complete treatment system in less than one week.
The two-module UltraFLEX is capable of producing 100kL of drinking water per day and includes media pre-treatment, flocculation, granular activated carbon, and UV disinfection on a single self-contained skid. The plant is located under Mitchelton’s iconic Robin Boyd tower.
The winery sourced its water from the local river and had an existing water treatment system. This system performed poorly during the summer months when organic concentration in the water increased.
FILTEC worked closely with the winery to develop a robust filtration system. The design consisted of two ultrafiltration system trains with polypropylene modules, helping reduce the cost for the customer. The new system produces water quality that meets Australian Drinking Water Guidelines.
