Whether you’re aerating or racking you will appreciate having the peace-of-mind of knowing that your brew will not be contaminated by whatever is floating around in the air.
Use it anywhere you need to keep something sanitary.
Both 1/4" and 3/8" tubing will attach to it, and it will snugly fit in any standard stopper as well.
Check out this list of suggested uses:
Airlock: The most common use might be as an airlock on any kind of fermenter.
Unlike other small sanitary filters, this unit fits perfectly into a stopper.
Works great for conical fermenters where air is taken in when samples are taken or trub is dumped.
Using the sanitary filter as airlock also eliminates the concern of drawing air back in as hot liquid cools and contracts in a fermenter.
It is not appropriate for long term storage of beer as it is not an oxygen barrier.
Inline Aeration/Oxygenation Filter: With an oxygenation or aeration system it will filter contaminants out of oxygen or air.
It is connected inline between pump/O2 tank and Stainless Diffusion Stone.
Hand Pumps: Some breweries use this filter with the breweries hand pump system.
Air going back into the cask is sanitized through this filter.
About the inline filters: There are two sides to the filter - an "in" and an "out".
The direction you use doesn't matter, however, you want to take note of which way you first push air through it and always keep it that way.
There is an arrow on the edge of the filter housing that we use to keep the airflow going one direction when using it.
The filter should never get wet, so don't try and sanitize it by dunking it in sanitizer.
To store the filter, use a little tin foil on the "In" of the filter and store in a zip-lock bag.
Can last up to 1 year. Discard if there are any signs of discoloration.
