Gravity fed and electrically pumped wine filters.
Buon Vino Super Jet Filter£330.00
These are simply the best wine filters we have used! They are quick and easy to set up, well engineered, have a good set of instructions & very effective in operation.
Like all wine filters they work best when used to add a bright sparkle to an already clear wine, and not to clear the wine in the first place.
We use the Mini Jet filter fitted with fine pads on all our single 5-gallon batches.
The wine goes through in about 15 minutes, and comes out with a brilliant shine.
We use the Super Jet more often as we find that we can filter 4 by 5-gallon batches using one set (there are 3 pads to a set for both machines) of fine pads.
The most we have done was 6 at one go.
The back pressure did rise, but as the Super Jet is fitted with a pressure gauge we were able to monitor this with 18/20 psi on the gauge being the recommended limit.
We use only the fine pads, as we have found that these produce a happy balance of excellent clarity with a good volume.
The Superjet connections are simple barbed for one & tapered for the other with good 1/2" food grade tubing with attached sediment trap for one & shaped 'hook over' to the depository container for the other.
They have been used for other beverages & products for where exceptional clarity is sought.
Do remember that no filter will clear a wine that is full of pectin, as this will just quickly block up the pores of the pads.
It is a bit like passing wallpaper paste through a sieve!
