Croft Filters, has saved adhesives and coatings producer, Itac Adhesives, over £85,000 a year by introducing a HiFlux self-cleaning filter unit to its solvent filtration system.
Calpso is an independent, family-owned business that has been producing iconic drinks products for 120 years.
The customer needed to replace a range of filters used within their production lines. They turned to Croft for filtration solutions that are made specifically for their production lines.
Croft produced 29 filters of five different kinds for the different product lines, which helped to standardise filtering throughout the drinks production.
The filters are a safeguard to catch any foreign bodies which may have made their way into the product from the raw materials prior to pasteurising, to ensure the best quality drinks. It was the first time Caylpso has worked with Croft and the company is pleased with the service they received.
Calypso process manager, Ian Titterton, said:
“We have had no problems at all during our work with Croft. They came to assess the job, gave us a competitive quote and supplied exactly what we needed.”
Croft Filters’ Neil Burns said:
“This was really interesting challenge to create a filter that dealt with a specific problem in a way that maintained the integrity of the manufacturing process and gave added benefit of easy cleaning with reduced maintenance costs.”
