Super Thin Synthetic Filter Discs
    #25281305 - 06/20/18 05:38 PM (2 years, 7 months ago)

Howdy folks,

So my package of synthetic filter disks just came in the mail and I think I made a huge mistake.

I took them out of the package and they are SUPER thin, maybe the width of 2 sheets of paper. I tried to take a picture but I honestly don't think it'd help because I can't capture how thin they are lol. They do seem to be of decent quality, one side has that rubbery PTFE finish and the other is kinda like paper.

Here's the purchase link: SFDs

I did find one forum post detailing the same situation, but it sounds like he just returned them.

Ya'll reckon I should return them? I read a post about how RR was saying some companies filters were ineffective because they were so thin so I'm thinking about getting some from Mycohaus instead.

Cheers,

Jim

0.2 micron filters are 0.2 micron filters regardless of thickness.
Unless they're just completely false advertising the 0.2 micron  filtration specification they should work just fine.

Cool, thanks Bod! I had a bit of a panic when I first saw them but I'll take your word and give them a shot.

Just to be sure, the rubbery coating side goes up to block the water, correct?

Most of them will end up on grain jars, which I'll be using your oat tek to prep so thanks for that too! :cool:

Really shouldn't matter which way they go

If they're from that UK company, I've tried them and ditched them. The issue I found was that they're far too thin to comfortably handle grains being thrown around on them. 
They're fine for bags but I wouldn't use them on jars simply cause of how fragile they are.

Thankfully they are not. These seem a bit higher quality, with a more textured and woven finish with a very distinct rubber film on the other side but I still have my doubts. $20 is a lot of money to spend on something if it doesn't work.

The vendor already updated their description to say filter paper instead of disks and emailed me to ensure "100% satisfaction" so I'll suppose I give them a shot.
