The multi-zoned construction weaves coarser fibers on the outside of the cartridge and finer fibers on the inside. This approach allows the surface of the filter to catch a lot of the larger sediment and the interior to perform the “actual filtration.” The net effect? It takes a lot longer for these filters to clog up and virtually eliminates the risk of blow-by. Just be sure the filter cylinder is fully engaged by the knife seals at both ends.

1 Micron Filters: Use a 1 micron filter as a final, ultra-clear polish only when the product is already very well settled. Excessive yeast or sediments in solution will quickly clog up a 1 micron cartridge. Product that is cloudy in appearance from anything other than a protein haze should be run through a 3 or even 5 micron prior to 1 micron filtering. In many cases the single coarser filtration will be all they need.
3 Micron Filters: The 3 micron cartridge is our most popular and most recommended filter. It offers a great balance between the high capacity of the 5 micron and the ulta-clear polish of the 1 micron. Our dual zone construction helps the 3 micron cartridge remove larger sediments without clogging prematurely and still effectively remove yeast and fine particulates from solution.
5 Micron Filters: Use our 5 micron filter when there is visible particulates in the product, or you are going to be drawing out of a vessel with a lot of sediment in the bottom. The 5 micron cartridge will remove almost all of the visible imperfections and the majority of any yeast left in suspension, all while being the least likely to clog up mid-filtration. For well settled starting products that just need a final clean-up, we recommend a 3 or 1 micron filtration instead.
Which Efficiency is best? Every batch & brewer is different. Some customers will find that their processes or ingredient choices naturally yield clearer or cloudier product. We recommend starting at our mid-range Super High Efficiency and adjusting from there as necessary.
