for high spirits you will need the pyrex version the plastic one will crumble as the spirits will cause it to delaminate. What do you mean by pics of the area? The glass / pyrex breaks very easily. i would like to get a stainless housing filer to put in line but done know which one will work with this system

I've had an Enolmaster for over 2 years. Probably use it on average once every two weeks. Never had a problem with it that wasn't easy to fix.

Is it breaking when you are screwing the top lid on it with the four screw handles?

From what I've seen the Enolmatic can be used for spirits and the housing is plastic.

We had that same enolmaster system and we didn't use the pyrex filter housing.  Never ever had a problem in 3 years.  Washed it thoroughly, handled gently, didn't overtighten the lid.

Someone could probably make good money selling pyrex replacements for the Enolmatic plastic filter housings. Why Tenco stopped producing them I will never understand. I suspect they did so before the explosion small craft distillers, not realizing the market was there, and knowing they were unnecessary for lower alcohol products like wine.

Filters are filters. Not sure why there is any question about which one will work for the Enolmaster, but maybe there's something I'm missing. It's been many years since we stopped selling Tenco fillers so I don't recall completely, but I've been looking at pictures of the unit online and it's just a standalone filter housing with a hose barb inlet and outlet.

The only odd thing about their unit is that it uses vacuum to pull through the filter, which means you'll get less life out of filters than you would if you were pushing through them with a positive displacement pump, which is the way we set up Mori Fillers with inline filter.

Any filter housing should technically work. It's just a question of plumbing it inline with your Tenco filler:

Polypropylene filter housing

Stainless steel housing

Professional-grade housing

It looks like all you would need to do is get either a hose barb x thread or hose barb x tri clamp fitting to make one of those work just like the Tenco version.
