Description

Description

This brand-new product is designed to be used with our Moisture Tube 3 and produced to extract, minimize, and reduce moisture before it enters your pipe bag including a Filter Cloth from a special strip of fine Merino wool that absorbs the piper’s warm breath and the nano filter traps water and particles, including bacteria, viruses, and the coronavirus.

 

It is made up of a lightweight flexible tube connected to a compression cartridge. Warm, mouth-blown air flows through the tube and when passing through the cartridge it is compressed, causing the warm air to cool and humidify within the cylinder. The cartridge is fitted with the new breathable cloth which can help with the air compression and to absorb excess moisture. The system is very easy to remove and fit. It is easily dismantled allowing for speedy and efficient cleaning.

 

NOTE: After a playing session, it is imperative that you remove the Filter Cloth and allow it to dry naturally. This is to ensure the cloth dry’s completely killing all viruses.

Simply insert the wool filter cloth into the cartridge section (onto the grill) before you play. Make sure all the holes in the grill are covered to prevent air entering the drone without first passing through the filter cloth. The cloth is very breathable and absorbent.

 

After playing, remove the cloth, lay it flat and allow to dry naturally. Ensure there is not too much direct heat as this could result in a little shrinkage.

 

Washing should be kept to a minimum. If you know you do not have a virus washing the cloth once a week is probably sufficient along with cleaning the complete system. If you have or suspect having a cold or virus you should take the precautions of sanitising after each use. If possible, put the tube and filter out in the sun to dry. Sunlight is known to kill bacteria and viruses.

 

If you need to wash the cloth, use the wash bag proved. It can be washed in a normal washing machine (gentle cycle) setting. Treat these filters like your most beloved wool sweater. Never expose them to too much direct heat (like in a clothes dryer) and allow to dry natural. A set off spare cloths also provide. All viruses that are transmitted in the air thrive on moisture. Pipers, when using this cloth can play with every confidence – and their audience can enjoy the performance too, safe in the knowledge that viruses are filtered out to greatly reduce any virus transmission while the piper plays.  In addition to filtering out viruses and particles, the clean air also results in more clarity in the overall sound of the instrument.

NOTE: After a playing session, it is imperative that you remove the Filter Clothes and allow them to dry naturally. This is to ensure the cloth dries completely enabling it to trap Virus particles & reabsorb moisture.

 

Moisture Tube 3 Instructions 1

Moisture Tube 3 Instructions 1

Installing the Moisture Tube (M3)

A tight fit of the MT3 is essential to optimize the benefits of the system. Do not separate the stock connector from the flexi-tube.

 

To ensure a tight fit, apply waxed hemp to the stock connector and then insert it (complete with its flexi-tube) firmly into the bottom of the blowpipe stock. An easy way to do this is to remove the blow pipe itself and hemp the stock connector up to the outside end of the blowpipe stock. It may take some adjustment until you are satisfied with the connection. You are now ready to fit the cartridge section onto the flexi-tube.

 

If using a split stock install in the normal way.

 

Cartridge Section

The cartridge section is comprised of two parts – the cartridge itself and the cartridge connector. Push the cartridge onto the cartridge connector. These parts should be kept intact unless you wish to remove the cloth to dry. To remove the cartridge section from the cartridge connector, grasp the cartridge and gently twist apart from the cartridge connector.

 

Between playing times keep the stock connector and flexi-tube in place (as one piece) in your pipe bag and remove the cartridge section.

 

Cartridge/Cloth and Air Reductions

The system has a number of built in air reductions.
1. The smaller diameter bore through the cartridge connector.
2. The grill inserted into the end of the cartridge connector.
3. The series of small holes in the cartridge itself. These holes should always be facing upwards in your bag.
