VacMotion Inline Filter Screens [filter from the fermenter] – Are They Food Grade?

1/2" Hose Barb in-Line Strainer with 50 mesh Stainless Steel Filter Screen

VacMotion Inc Inline Filters are used by some homebrewers to filter to and from the fermenter and more.

These are available in a variety of sizes and have been used by homebrewers for a while.


What are others saying?


Are They Food Grade?

I received this question from an HBF Reader [8 Ways to Connect with HBF] and thought it was worth doing some digging.

Note: The answers that I received were given to me as part of an interaction with VacMotion’s customer support.  As such, the opinions expressed aren’t necessarily an official position statement.  Also, things can change over time.  Contact the manufacturer for current information.

I asked: Is this filter food grade?

Answer I received: Yes, the filters are made of food grade materials.

Along with this chart:

I followed up with: So, regardless of operating pressure it is not safe for food above 125?

After some back and forth the VacMotion representative said that at lower pressures the filter materials can see see temps up to 180 deg F.

Considering all of this, these, these seem best suited pre-boil or post-chiller related activities.

Also, something interesting…. I don’t want to say anything specific, but it is quite curios how similar the Bouncer at VacMotion Filters look.

  • Shipping is an additional cost based on your location.  Because of minimum shipping costs, it may make sense to place a larger order.  Additional items may ship for minimal cost.  Example: Shipping (for me) for 1 lb of Citra is $8.93.  2 lbs cost $9.18 to ship.  That second pound costs just 25 cents to ship.  That’s minimum shipping at work.

MoreBeer Plate Filter Setup – $39.99! + Free Ship Eligible, Limited Availability + Hands On Review

beer and wine plate chiller

Beer and Wine Plate Filter Kit from MoreBeer.  Check out my Hands on Review of this great setup.

More Info

From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

Filter beer like the pros, only on a smaller scale. Most small breweries and wineries use a large plate filter system to achieve clear beer or wine. Now you can do the same at home. Our new plate filter has a larger surface area, which means more yeast and particulate extraction.

Each filtering session requires two filter pads at a time, and each pad must be the same micron to work. The product is pushed into the housing at 5 PSI and passes on either side of the plate filter housing, then gets forced through the filter pads to the center, where it is pushed out into your awaiting collection vessel, such as a keg or tank.

Includes 2 X 24″ long hoses (5/16″ ID x 7/16″ OD)

Made from ABS plastic. Temperature rated to 167°F (75°C).
