The new actiTube SLIM filter is thinner and shorter than the "normal" one, and is filled with very high-quality smaller activated carbon to ensure the filtration capacity you are used to from Tune. The SLIM filter has 2 ceramic caps, i.e. the insertion direction no longer needs to be observed. Like all Tune products, it is manufactured in Germany.
With activated carbon, a high proportion of harmful condensates is filtered out of the smoke. A large part of the pollutants stick to the activated carbon and are disposed of when the filter is changed. The smoke becomes pleasantly mild without compromising the effect. By using an actiTube activated carbon filter, a large part of the pollutants is filtered by the activated carbon and not inhaled. This cools down the smoke and makes it pleasantly mild in taste. The bitter taste in the mouth is also largely prevented. When used correctly (small puffs), the effect is even often felt to be stronger.
To ensure the greatest possible filtration, actiTube uses only the highest quality activated carbon in pellet form (no broken carbon) and fills the filters completely (if the filter is poorly filled, the smoke will seek a way around the carbon and the filtration capacity will be greatly reduced). The activated carbon we use is entirely of plant origin.
Further advantages of the Tune activated carbon filter system:
- the taste is improved
- the lungs are less stressed
- the pipe stays clean longer
- scratchy smoke blends taste smoother
- smoking pure is easier
Every winter actiTube receives more and more complaints that the filters become clogged and unpleasant discharge occurs at the cap. This is due to a too high temperature difference between hot smoke and cold activated carbon, where smoke and moisture condense in the filter instead of being filtered. In this case we recommend to store the filters in a warm place (e.g. heater, PC, stereo) before use and if necessary to stop smoking outside. If this happens to you even in the warm, you should prevent hot smoking by taking small puffs and make sure that the filters have not been stored in a cool place (e.g. windowsill or on the floor) beforehand.
By the way, the Tune activated charcoal filters have a special end cap that, unlike conventional activated charcoal filters, does not get clogged even with joints and reliably keeps the condensation away from the mouth!By the way, the Tune activated charcoal filters have a special end cap that, unlike conventional activated charcoal filters, does not get clogged even with joints and reliably keeps the condensation away from the mouth!
