Ultra Filtration UF Cartridge (GAC)

The state of the art Ultrafilter UF filter Cartridges are designed for ultrafiltration of water via hollow fibres. Ultrafiltration is a filtration process which allows undesired substances present in water, even very small particles, to be separated. The pores of the membrane are so small that bacteria and even viruses are too large to cross it. The micropores present on the surface of the hollow-fibre membrane, with a diameter of 0.1 microns, retain all impurities above that diameter. Viruses, bacteria, lumps, solid particles, micro plastics, PFAS forever chemicals and turbidity (as long as they are larger than this size) are therefore trapped on the exterior of the hollow fibre, while dissolved salts and essential elements at a molecular level, which are essential for human health, pass through and flow into the system. These UF cartridges are designed for “outside” to “inside” operation, with a multitude of small tubes, or fibres. During the passage of the solution to be filtered, dirt is collected in the outer part of the hollow fibres, while the filtered liquid flows into the inner part and on into the system. By periodically reversing the water flow, it is possible to backwash the fibres and partially restore the flow rate of the cartridge. To maximise its lifespan, the Ultrafilter cartridge  should be protected with a 5 micron carbon or sediment pre-filter which captures the larger particulates thus allowing the UF to concentrate in capturing the finer grades of particulates down to 0.1 micron without prematurely clogging.

Granular Activated Carbon Cartridge (GAC)

A filter with granular activated carbon (GAC) is a proven option to remove certain chemicals, particularly organic chemicals, from water. GAC filters also can be used to remove chemicals that give objectionable odours or tastes to water such as hydrogen sulphide (rotten eggs odour) or chlorine.Granular activated carbon is made from raw organic materials (such as coconut shells or coal) that are high in carbon. Heat, in the absence of oxygen, is used to increase (activate) the surface area of the carbon; this is why these filters are sometimes referred to as “charcoal” filters. The activated carbon removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter containing GAC by trapping (adsorbing) the chemical in the GAC.

This is why these filters are sometimes referred to as “charcoal” filters. The activated carbon removes certain chemicals that are dissolved in water passing through a filter containing GAC by trapping (adsorbing) the chemical in the GAC. It is very important that the type and concentration of contaminants, and average water use, be known in order to determine the correct size and components of the system. All treatment systems require proper installation and periodic maintenance. Eventually, the ability of the GAC to bind and remove chemicals is used up and the GAC needs to be changed. How often the GAC should be changed needs to be based on contaminant levels and water use. While some filters may last for several years if contaminant levels and/or water use are low, higher levels or use may require more frequent change-outs.

Heavy Metals and Lead Removal Cartridge

Heavy Metals can have harmful effects on health as well as interfering with sensitive manufacturing processes. Heavy metal reduction resin specifically targets these contaminants, effectively reducing levels to meet drinking water standards.

 

Delivering excellent selectivity of heavy metals including zinc, mercury and copper from potable water supplies, this cartridge also provides water softening properties without the sodium dosing usually found with exclusive softening cartridges. It can be combined with other filtration and treatment products for a comprehensive solution.

5 Micron Sediment Capture Cartridge

Our sediment cartridges are manufactured from only FDA-compliant polypropylene with no binders, resins or glues ensuring no leeching into the liquid stream, using melt-blown technology to form their 3D micropore matrices with different fine fibres used to create a strong structure with coarser filtration on the surface and finer filtration on the inner. This gradual reduction in size allows the cartridges to be used where a wide band of pollutant sizes exist. Contaminants such as particles, dirt, debris and rust are removed to provide efficient filtration and excellent service life.

Nitrate Removal Cartridge

Nitrate Removal is essential in rural or agricultural areas, and considered a serious health problem for infants and the elderly. The selective anion resin reduces nitrate levels by exchanging them for harmless chloride ions, meeting drinking water standards. Nitrate often reaches surface and groundwater by runoff from agricultural activities, such as usage in fertiliser. Nitrate removal cartridges can reduce toxic nitrate levels below WHO limits of 50mg/L, exchanging harmful nitrates for chloride ions.

Chloramine Removal Cartridge

In recent years, a growing number of municipalities started adding ammonia to the water supply. Ammonia bonds with chlorine to form chloramines. They are doing this for two reasons. One is because scientific studies suggest chlorine is carcinogenic. The EPA has told water suppliers to reduce the amount of trihalomethanes (disinfection byproducts – the risk of disinfection) in the water supply. They did not, however, mandate the use of chloramines.

The other reason is that adding ammonia changes the chemistry of chlorine so that it continues to serve as a disinfectant. But in its new form the bond holds more strongly and the disinfectant lasts longer. The new chemical is called chloramine. By definition, chloramines are harder to remove than chlorine. Our selected combination of media in our cartridges has the effective power to remove the chloramine from

Iron Removal Cartridge

Does your water have a metallic taste or a reddish-brown tint to it? It could be because there’s a lot of iron in it, which can rust and affect the taste and change the colour of your water. When iron corrodes, it develops the distinctive reddish-orange color of rust that comes out of your faucets and yucky brown stains in showers. Our filters capture the particulates removing the taste and discolouration from your water.
