Q: Can this also be used with wine? I do a small backyard syrup operation each spring, 7-8 gallons but also have apples and grapes and make several batches of wine. It would be great if this could be used for both. Thanks for your time.
A: The products intended use is with wine and should work just fine for filtering fruit or grape wines!
Q: Is it 220V version available to purchase?
A: Unfortunately through our vendor at this time only a 120 volt grounded plug would be available
Q: Is the Buon Vino Super Jet Filter capable of producing sterile wine?
A: Paired with the correct micron pads (less than .5) it will produce sterile wine.
Q: Is a pump rebuild kit available? I need either the double piston with o-ring or the entire head. Thanks
A: We can reach out to the vnedor to see if they supply the part or if this needs source fro mthe manufactueer-An E-mail submission to firstname.lastname@example.org so we have a ticket to follow up on would be the best bet in this case
Q: Could this be used to filter cold brewed coffee?
A: While it is intedned for wine filtration, the system should be able to filter coffee as well if needed
Q: Can this be used to filter beer?
A: They are designed for wine but would be used for beer filtration as well
Q: Will it work with ethanol/spirits at 40% abv?
A: The pump and filter it self would work fine, but you may need to look into using a carbon based filter pad in place of the paper filters
Q: Whats the micron of the filters? What is the highest temperature the system can handle?
A: The temperature rating on the pump components is 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Maple Syrup is typically filtered at 180 or higher as the syrup would be too viscus below this temp.
the filter pad microns are as follows #1, 5-10 micron #2, 1.5-2.5 Micron #3, .5-1.0 Micron.
Q: Can/could this be used to filter maple syrup?
A: We are not familiar with the process of filtering syrup, and can only guarantee this would work to filter wine or beer. the syrup may be too viscous for the pump and filters to handle.
Q: What determines the type of pads to use?
A: #1 pads course filters, #2 pads polishing filters #3 sterile pads super fine filters.
Q: How many filters? How many gals can you filter with one set of filters?
A: The Super Jet uses 3 filters per run (all the same type). They state each set is good for one 6-gal batch, but more often two to three can be done.
I'm deciding between the super jet and the super jet 6 pad system. I bottle about 20 gallons of wine at a time on a pretty low tech level. I own a winery with 72 five gallon carboys going at a time and produce only about 10 cases a week. Would the super jet suffice for filtering roughly 20-25 gallons at a time, once per week?
A: 20-25 gallons is definitely on the high end of what this filter is designed to handle. The manufacturer states that people can often get three 6 gallon batches filtered from one set of filters. With your setup it will work fine.
Q: How many pads do you use at a time in this? Can you use different size/type pads during the same run or should they all be the same (if multiple pads are used in the plates)
A: You would use 3 pads at a time and you never want to mix different type or grade pads together while filtering. Always use the same type/grade of pads at the same time. Thanks!
Q: Does it come with pads?
A: This filter does does not come with any filter pads. Make sure to add them to your order from the option menu.
Q: Other than size (volume/min), what is the difference between the super jet and the mini jet? Are the filtering results identical or does one do a better job than the other? Is one easier to use, and/or clean?
A: These difference between these filters is the volume. They both use the same filter pads, just in different sizes. Both function in the same manner, simply choose the option that best fits your needs.
