Crosspure® is a kieselguhr-free filtration aid for beverages such as wine or beer. Crosspure® improves clarity and stability with a pure taste, and long shelf life. Crosspure® filters and stabilizes your product in just one step. With more than 150 years experience in the human nutrition industry we are among the key partners for several beverage applications.
Crosspure® is an innovative, regenerable polymer consisting of 70% polystyrene and 30% Polyvinylpyrrolidon (PVPP), which combine stabilization and filtration into one step. Crosspure® can adsorb polyphenols and hold back yeast, proteins, replacing kieselguhr and PVPP as filtration and stabilization aid.
There’s more than one good reason for making Crosspure® your preferred choice when it comes to kieselguhr-free filtration and stabilization of beer: Crosspure® is regenerable, safe and easy to handle.
In a technical process, haze particles like yeasts, complexes consisting of protein, and tanning agents are effectively removed. Using Crosspure® will result in a product that will fulfill all your customers’ demands for a crystal clear beverage. Crosspure® is not only regenerable, with virtually no limits, but it is the most sustainable filtration technology currently on the market. Therefore, a filtration free of kieselguhr is as healthy for your business as it is for your employees.
When filtering with Crosspure®, two separation mechanisms provide perfect clarity. Physical processes remove particulate substances causing turbidity such as yeasts, protein-tannin complexes, oxalates, and hops resins. In addition, dissolved tannins are adsorbed such as anthocyanogens and flavonoids.
Crosspure® is an innovative solution developed by BASF for optimum filtration and stabilization of beer and other beverages. Compared to conventional products, the filter excipient provides several advantages: Crosspure® is regenerable, safe, and easy to handle.
