HOW WORKS: It is particularly suitable for filtering wine, water, infusions, beers, pharmaceutical solutions, perfumes. It does not require any particular maintenance if not a normal cleaning. Filtering is the last step in the production of wine and requires knowledge of some fundamental precautions. A young wine (30 days) is not ready for fine filtering. By following our instructions you will find the right way to achieve a good filtering with the COLOMBO Rover wine filter pump.
For best results, the wine should be aged at least two or three months and brought to room temperature before filtering. During this time the wine takes shape and allows the majority of suspended parts to settle. At this point, use the COLOMBO Rover wine filter pump to finish the wine. If a superior finish is desired, use the rinse aid filters. Remember to wait between two and four days between one filter and another. If, on the other hand, you want to filter a young wine (30 days), you must always use a rough filter first; immediately after you can use a filter for finishing. During filtering, young wine is made agitated by the presence of CO2 (carbon dioxide) created during fermentation; wait a few hours before bottling the wine.
WHAT LIQUIDS CAN HANDLE: It is possible to use the pump to transfer any type of clean liquid in common use, which must not be chemically aggressive or abrasive. Some examples: water, wine, milk, vinegar, low viscosity oily solutions, neutral fluid detergents, diesel.
SERVICE: Normal maintenance requires few and simple interventions, as if it were a normal household appliance. After use, pour clean water to rinse the internal surfaces of the pump. The electric motor requires no maintenance, there are no parts to lubricate. The external parts must be cleaned with a slightly damp sponge, and then dried immediately with a cloth.
