This is a high-quality Competition shower screen with an innovative and very fine membrane to get the ideal distribution of the water on the coffee in the portafilter.
The WM at the end of the product code is a wire membrane
The shower is made up of a membrane of woven stainless steel wires that are applied to the shower assembly by means of a caulking process: the body of the shower is folded over the mesh to lock it in place without resorting to any welding points.
- Caulking design features a very high filtering power of 35 µm that guarantees an even distribution of water on the coffee
- Blocks the passage of extraction residue during the drying process- keeping the group clean - like new.
- Protects both the group and the solenoid valve from deterioration caused by dirt.

As an onwer of entry level machine (Lelit Anna LEM) I sought to improve my extractions and upgrading the factory shower screen seemed to be a really good idea. Well IMS CI 35 proved to be an excellent choice. It really helped both in better flow, more consistent extractions dry coffee pucks. I was kind of unlucky to have the outer membrane micro bursting just a month ago, but blue star resolved the issue really professionaly sending me a new one. I am more than happy to continue use this shower screen
Dear BSC support,
on IMS it says that this shower is 51,9mm in diameter, while in your description it is 51,5mm. I have old Bezzera Hobby (51,9mm shower) and would like to upgrade it with this shower. Also, CI200IM is something I am considering, but it is also 51,5mm.
Will it work on my machine?

Hi, We measured the CI35WM and it is 51.7mm wide - so should be fine - the standard size is 51.5mm for these shower screens. The CI200Im is 51.3mm so 4mm less and would not be a good replacement.
