20cm x 20cm filter pads made for 20x20 plate filters. Pads rated 0.45 micron remove 99.999% of bacteria. This pad is the right choice when you want to promote sterility in the bottle, although do please note that the pad does not remove 100% of bacteria - only a cartridge filter can do so.

The filters can be sterilized by in-line steam, auto-claving, dry heat, hot water or chemical methods. We choose to run Saniclean (CL27) solution through the pads followed by sterile water or a small amount of wine 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.

Purchasing to make face mask. COVID 19 is .3 Microns and this will filter down to .45, the same as an N95 mask, which is unavailable. My sister has Luekemia and needs as much protection as we can get. Thank you.

With these 0.45 micron filter sheets can i skip using Sorbate on a sweet wine?
ian ritter on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: you must use sorbate on all wines over 2%RS regardless of filter ... I know .... I had problems when I didn't ...... SDW
What is the easiest way to sterilize the filter sheets at home?
Langston Davis on Apr 3, 2020
BEST ANSWER: If you have an on demand water heater, most can be programmed to 182 F. After 30 minutes of continuous hot water at that temperature, it will be. You can use some of the cleaning products they recommend but it’s likely not going to be sterilized without the heat. I have heard people placing them in a large roasting pan with a few inches of water and sticking them in the oven at 200 F for 20 minutes. I’ve never done it but it sounds good in theory. I would imagine it’s pretty difficult/time consuming if you are trying to sterilize a large number of sheets at one time.
