Already widely adopted during traditional filtration due to their strength, durability, reliability, and sanitisation capacity, ceramic membranes are now being increasingly applied in lees separating filters as well. This CKFK Series high solids cross-flow filter is equipped with 6mm channels as opposed to traditional 2mm which allow the flow of higher solids material. This is supported by 2-brush strainers - one, a nylon vacuum head at the top of the membranes which sweeps away fibers and the other, a traditional centrifugal brush on the inlet to also remove solids and aid flow rates.

As margins get tighter, the need to filter these types of products is increasing. The Della Toffola filter models are the only ones capable of achieving a final concentration of more than 90%. CFKF Series filters are designed and constructed to efficiently process lees from grape must, cider and flotation caps. In particular regard to winemaking, they permit the filtration of:
- Grape lees after fermentation
- Grape lees after clarification
- Clarified wines
- Non-clarified wines

The use of ceramic membranes overcomes practically every difficulty that arises during lees filtration, while constantly ensuring unequalled product recovery.
