For more than 10 years Croft have been re-meshing and refurbishing filters for a customer operating within the Chemical industry.
One particular local brewery – George Wrights of Rainford, St Helens contacted Croft to see if they could supply new filters for their site and if possible improve the existing filter design.
Their new brewery was a fully computer controlled 25 barrel plant housed in a 7000 sq. ft building, and was probably the most advanced microbrewery in the UK producing both consistent and high quality ales demanded by all their customers.
Whilst the existing filters did the job, they were not durable enough and didn’t last as long as expected – Croft was supplied one of the old ones by Keith Wright, proprietor of the brewery to examine and replicate.
Having a great deal of experience within the brewing industry, Croft proposed to strengthen the new filter using outer and inner perforated cylinders as opposed to just mesh as the original one was constructed of.
Keith Wright, proprietor of the brewery, commented:
“The new filters manufactured by Croft Filters are far superior both in design and manufacture to my existing filters, both are now working successfully at the brewery. Both filters where manufactured within days and at a very reasonable cost. I would use Croft again.”
Neil Burns, director at Croft Filters, added:
“It’s always good to help a customer where you can actually sample the results of our innovative design and manufacturing capabilities. This is one job we will drink to!”
