Unique expertise

The Flavy X-Wine filter has a reputation on the market for giving the best flow rates with the most difficult wines. This result is the fruit of 30 years’ experience in wine filtration. Controlling clogging, combined with a gentle (very low pressure), flexible process and a high-performance filtration membrane, ensures stable, regular flow rates throughout the filtration process.


A wide range of applications

The Flavy X-Wine filter is extremely versatile, capable of treating raw wines with high turbidity, red wines from thermovinification, wines from cold storage (-4°C), fined wines, sparkling wines and wines ready for bottling. With this filter you can also block fermentation and filter wines containing PVPP.

Low environmental impact

The Flavy X-Wine filter stands out for having the lowest consumption of water and cleaning products on the market.

The washing water separation option contributes even further to reducing the environmental impact by allowing the last filter rinsing water to be reused for other purposes in the cellar (vat room cleaning, floor cleaning, etc.).

Finally, the Flavy X-Wine filter, is renowned for preserving the quality of filtered wines and its rock-solid reliability.
