Hilltop Honey Think Axium’s Filters Are The Bees Knees
28 June 2019
Axium Process recently supplied a number of 316L stainless steel Pure-Screen filters to award winning honey producer, Hilltop Honey, who are buzzing with success, distributing their products in swarms throughout the UK’s major supermarkets, independent farm shops and delicatessens.
Founded in 2011 by young beekeeper, Scott Davies, Hilltop Honey has a passion for delivering the most exceptional tasting honey from all corners of the world. The recent implementation of Axium’s wedge wire filters is to remove hive debris, which includes wort and fragments of wax, that occur naturally during the extraction process.
“Axium’s Pure-Screen Filter is ideal for viscous products and offers a large surface area that results in lower frequency cleaning“ states Hilltop Honey’s General Manager, “a Technical Sales Engineer helped us select the best option for our application from a wide range of stainless steel filters and they have proved very effective in operation. The filter is adaptable allowing the use of interchangeable elements with different micron ratings, making it a very flexible solution for a number of operations throughout our process. The use of Axium’s filters ensures that we can effectively remove any debris whilst retaining the world-renowned properties that naturally occurs within honey”.
Axium’s filters range from 5 micron up to 8000 microns as standard and can be customised to suit site specific or process requirements, from pump and instrument protection to critical applications where filter failure or collapse is not an option. The range, which includes standard, compact, 90° and in-line options, is available with interchangeable stainless steel wedge wire, sintered mesh and perforated tube screens.
