Balsa system

The Savinelli Balsa System is a filtering system using the natural attributes of balsa wood. It allows the absorption of both moisture and impurities from smoke, without the addition of chemical elements, insuring a clean pipe shank. This absorption ability is due to the extremely porous fibres of the balsa, which allows for a perfect smoke without altering the flavour and aroma of the tobacco.

     

This patented filtering system has been tested both by the EURATOM Research Center of Ispra and by the CHEMICAL & ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY Inc. Research Center (USA) with,more or less,the same results: “..the filter has the ability to absorb 77% of the nicotine and 91% of the tar contained in tobacco without altering the flavour of same”. The filter is uncomplicated and easy to use.

It is advisable to replace it every two / three smokes, or every time you clean the pipe. It is also recommended not to let the pipe sit longer than one day with a used filter inserted. With the insertion of the adaptor (included with the 6mm filters), the pipe can also be smoked perfectly well without the filter.
