The KLR Filter is a home filter system specifically designed to filter wine and beer fermentations. The filter is made in America, with a hand-machined base made of sturdy, high impact food grade PVC material.
When you purchase a wine filtering kit, it comes with a 1 and 5 micron set of starter filters. All filters fit the KLR Filter, so if you purchase a wine filter and want to also filter beer you simply purchase the 20 and 50 micron filter cartridges.
Every kit comes with the following parts:
This is the gray, heavy-duty circular PCV piece that was hand machined.
The base gasket is the larger round piece of rubber with a hole in the center.
This is the clear plastic threaded container. It screws into the filter base, and holds the filter cartridge and filter seal in place.
NOTE: the fitting on top of the filter body is slightly slanted for a reason. Do not straighten it out – you void the warranty and ruin a great filter system!
The filter cartridge is the white cylinder that goes inside the filter body, and there are two starter filters provided in your kit. The wine kit has a 1 and 5 micron filter included in it, and the beer kit has a 20 and 50 micron filter included in it.
1, 5, 10, 20 and 50 micron filters are available for this filter system. 1 and 5 micron filters are typically used for filtering wine. The 10, 20 and 50 micron filters are typically used for filtering beer.
This is a solid rubber disk. The filter seal prevents your home brew from simply passing through the top of the filter, thus forcing it to pass through the sides of the filter cartridge. The seal provides assurance that the liquid is being filtered properly.
