Filtabrite are fine grade pads in a pack of 5, offering excellent value. They are specifically designed to filter wines slowly, maximising the time that wine is in contact with the pad. The longer wait will be rewarded with the highest clarity in your finished wines. They are part of a system of pads that are available for the Vinbrite Filter, and are particularly effective when filtering pre-fined wines.
The performance of the pad can be improved by first passing your wine through the coarse grade Prime Pad. This will improve flow rates and extend the life of the Filtabrite Pad.
These pads must be fitted with the smoother patterned side facing the locking ring (rougher crater looking side facing inside the Filter Body). As this pad is thicker, there is no need to fit the Support Disc but do ensure that the Locking Ring is fully tightened against the pad using a Vinbrite spanner.
Prime Pads are in a pack of 5 and are a coarse grade pre-treatment pad and are part of a system of pads that are available for the Vinbrite Filter. They will enhance the overall performance of your Filter by removing larger solids and colloidal particles that may block finer filter pads. You may not notice significant differences in the clarity of your wine after passing through the Prime Pad, but the subsequent flow rate and performance of Filtabrite or Crystalbrite Pads will be improved.
Prime Pads can also be used to filter a spirit wash prior to distillation. This will ensure a cleaner wash and reduce flavours carried over from the distillation process.
