Air in enolmatic Tandem filter

Recommended Posts

I'm using the tandem filter with the Enolmatic filler, and it keeps filling with air so I have to open the top valve and charge it with spirit again every 30 bottles or so during bottling. Does this happen for everyone? Is there any way to stop it? I tried contacting the manufacture, but got no reply.

Cleaning it today I did notice the very bottom red gasket on the filler nozzle had popped out of its groove to ride a bit higher than it should. Could that be it? Thanks.

You have an air leak somewhere in the filter.  Consider tightening all the line connections with a hose clamp.

There is a gasket on the top of the filter housing that occasionally get out of place on mine causing similar problems. Take the top cover off the filter housing and check that.

Sometimes the threaded vertical rods that hold the vessel together will start to walk/loosen.  You can crank it down and it will still leak.  Check that you have a good seat and that the rods haven't worked their way free.

i deleted a post because it was non-sense. I searched everywhere for a leak and nothing was leaking. Turns out the filter cylinder was just clogged. Works fine with a new filter. Also works if I crack the valve on top of the filter. Might do that for a while to get a little more life from my filters.
