BevBright's Five Micron Filters are disposable, multi-zoned, cartridge style filters perfect for filtering wine with any standard 10" filter cartridge housing. BevBright achieves superior efficiency by being the first to spin different diameters of poly strands on the same filter core to create zones of filtration. The zone closest to the core contains consistent, tight fibers for final filtration while the final outer layer zone is spun with larger fibers for increased sediment holding capacity and increased flow through. The best of both worlds. By comparison typical spun poly water filters are spun with only one size of fiber. Note that these are True 10" Filter Cartridges that rely upon the housing being closed tightly in order to engage the Knife Seals & eliminate bypass.
5 Micron Filters
5 micron filters are the best choice when there is visible sediment in your wine. A 5 micron filter will remove almost all visible sediment and yeast and is less likely to clog than a 3 or 1 micron filter. Already have pretty clear wine and just want to make it shine? Check out our 3 micron or 1 micron filters.
What Retention Efficiency rating should I choose?
We suggest you start with the Super High Efficiency rated filters and adjust from there.
90% High Efficiency - Removes 90% of the material 5 micron or larger in a single pass.
98% Super High Efficiency - Removes 98% of the material 5 micron or larger in a single pass.
99.8% Absolute Efficiency - Removes 99.8% of the material 5 micron or larger in a single pass.
More Information on Efficiency Ratings
The efficiency rating tells you what % of material, at the given micron rating, will be filtered out in a single pass. Cheaper spun poly water filters are never rated for efficiency because they only remove 60-80% of the material at a given micron rating in a single pass. BevBright offer three levels of efficiency to fit any winemaker's budget or need.
The High Efficiency rated filters work better than any 5 micron rated hardware store spun poly filters . The Super High Efficiency filters represent great value. They remove 98% of material in a single pass for just a little bit more money. Absolute rated filters are more typically by discerning winermakers that want the highest efficiency possible.
