Our Cartridge Line has changed! Pall Varafine cartridges have been discontinued by the manufacturer- our Graver Watertec cartridge line is what we recommend if you have been using Varafine. See our full compatibility chart to view comprable products, or our Filter Cartridge Selection Chart to see our entire product line.
Product Name: Graver Watertec
Filter Type: Membrane
Filter media: PES
Porosity: .45 micron Absolute
Actual Length: 9.75 inch (10" option); 20 inch (20" option)
Configuration: Single open end with M3 fitting
FDA Rating: FDA Compliant
Recommended Uses: Useful for those that desire general bacterial removal. Will remove bacteria but should not be used as final filtration for those wanting absolute bacterial removal.
Compatible Housings for the 10" option: TC10VP
Compatible Housings for the 20" option: TC20VP
Notes: This type of filter has been used successfully in the past for wine filtration where aesthetic clarity was the objective. It is FDA Compliant, but is not recommended by the manufacturer for wine applications needing consistent bacterial removal. We do not recommend this filter for final filtration. We now recommend the new Pall UP10-.45 or UP20-.45 as it is recommended by the manufacturer to provide microbial stabilization. With wines containing residual sugar we still recommend a chemical stabilizer such as Potassium Sorbate to protect against in-bottle fermentation.
