|Fujifilm makes the yeast filters that are used right before
cans and bottles are filled with draft beer.
This filter has stabilized the quality of canned and bottled beer, and as a result, non-pasteurized draft beer is now available at home.
Fujifilm’s filter technology, which evolved from opening microscopic holes in photo film, is being used to create that delicious glass of beer you enjoy.
|Since the founding of Fujifilm, photographic film technology has been one of our fundamental technologies.
Here, we introduce a bit of trivia about how this technology evolved, and evolved, and evolved, and its role in creating the draft beer that everyone enjoys!
Using photographic film technology as a base, Fujifilm engineers took on the challenge of two specific notions:
Research on these two topics merged, and after several years of work, the porous filter was invented. This porous filter with countless microscopic holes has unmatched capability for catching tiny things - even objects less than one micron!
|Since 1970, Fujifilm has helped beer makers develop beer with a new
In the final step of crafting a beer, the yeast must be filtered to preserve the taste after it is canned or bottled. Fujifilm's porous filter does a spectacular job in catching this yeast!
|The removal of yeast is fully guaranteed due to the
innovative technology used in this filter.
Pasteurization is no longer required. Brewing in Japan has changed forever.
|Both the Fujifilm technical team and the beer company employees who spent years developing this filter were ecstatic
over their achievement.
The delicious taste of this new beer completely eliminated their fatigue from the years of working on this development. This is the draft beer everyone enjoys today.
|There's even more to the story of porous filters. Fujifilm continued to develop new applications for this porous filter with its unmatched capability of catching microscopic matter. As of 2007, this technology is flourishing beyond the world of draft beer.|
|It can catch components in blood and even DNA!
Porous filter technology is also used in the biochemical blood tests you're familiar with from health check-ups, gene analysis, food traceability, crime investigation, and in the latest DNA tests.
