Filter Pad with holes No.2 (Polishing Filtration) 0.7 micron 6 pads of pack size 20x20 cm
The No.2 pads are finer and are used for brightening and polishing your wine. You should notice a brightness and clarity. These pads remove smaller suspended particles and are used for your second filtration.
Filter Pads are not all the same. They may be rated with specific micron sizes but they also must correspond to Flow Rate and Pressure applied to them by the pump.
The #1 Pads are Coarse Pads. They remove large particulate in a heavy wine, typically those heavy reds.
The #2 Pads are Polishing Pads and they remove medium to small particulate in your wine and add the shine to your wine.
The #3 Pads are Sterile Pads with very tight pads that remove very small particulate in your wine.
A young wine (30 days old) is not ready for FINE filtration. As per our instructions and winemaking directions, this is the racking and maturing stage for the wine.
FOR BEST RESULTS: Wine should be 2- 3 months old and kept in as cool a spot as you have in your home prior to filtration. During this time the wine will mature, achieve better body and allow the suspended particles and products to drop naturally. At this stage you may proceed to filter with the #2 pads to achieve the shine and sparkle in your wine. You then may follow up with our #3 pads. For better results allow 2-4 days between filtrations.
Do Not Mix Filter Pad Types. All Filter Pads inserted into the Filter Machine MUST be of the same grade.
