Description

  • 40 cm x 40 cm filter pads fit all standard 40x40 plate filters, which are typically used in professional applications
  • 10 Micron rating provides a rough filtration that removes large particulates, often followed by a finer filtration
  • Rough filtration is necessary on beverages with heavy sedimentation as the finer pads will clog without prefiltering
  • Easily sterilizable via heat or steam
  • Manufactured by Filtrox, the world's leading producer of high-quality filtration media

40cm x 40cm filter pads made for 40x40 plate filters. 10 micron pads are considered to be a "rough" filtration and are typically used to prepare the beverage to be filtered by finer pads, usually either 2-3 micron or 1.5 micron depending on tastes and objectives. Please note that all pad filters are rated 'nominal', meaning that about 90-95% of all particulate matter at the micron rating will be filtered out. There will always be a little bit of smaller material that is also filtered out, as well as some larger material that will make it through.

The filters can be sterilized by in-line steam, auto-claving, dry heat, hot water or chemical methods. We choose to run Saniclean solution through the pads followed by sterile water or a small amount of beverage that is then discarded. After the solution is run through the pads, and the pads have softened, the filter will need to be re-tightened.

Each pad has an entry side and an exit side, distinguishable by their different textures. The entry side is a billowy type texture, frequently called the "rough" side; and the exit side has a crosshatch pattern and is commonly called the "smooth" side. For more information on how to load filter sheets into your plate and frame filter, see our Guide to Plate Filtering.
