Poly-Pleated Water Filter Cartridge
Poly-Pleated Water Filter Cartridge Technical Data
|Filtration||20, 10, 1 micron|
Jumbo Poly-pleated Water Filter Cartridge - 10 inch. Designed to fit either the Big Blue or Big White 10″ Jumbo Housings.
The Poly-Pleated Water Filter Cartridge is also designed to remove:
The filter will also remove some organic matter and will improve the colour or clarity of the water.
Poly-Pleated Water Filter Cartridge Features
Poly-pleated filters can be washed and reused repeatedly. The pleats increase surface area and, as a result allow high flow rates and improve pressure and flow over other filters. Their high dirt-holding capacity results in longer intervals between cleaning Therefore, they are ideally suited for pre-treating water, inserted before before poly-spun and / or UV filters. Poly-Pleated filters are suitable for tank water and operate in the temperature range 4.5 - 60°C.
Poly-spun Water Filters
|Filtration||10, 5, 1 micron|
Jumbo Poly-spun Water Filter Cartridges - 10 inch. Designed to fit either the Big Blue or Big White 10″ Jumbo Housings.
These filters are designed to remove:
- Fine Sediment
They will also remove some organic matter and will improve the colour or clarity of the water.
Poly-spun Water Filter Features
These filters are manufactured from 100% polypropylene using the melt-blown process. No binders or adhesives are used to manufacture these filters and as a result, the material is compatible with a wide range of fluids. The filters have a high capacity to hold contaminants which gives them a longer life and consequently there is a lower pressure differential across the filter which increases flow rate and stabilises system pressure. Poly-spun filters are also suitable for tank water
Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridge
|Life Span||40,000 litres|
Carbon Block Water Filter Cartridge - 10 inch. Designed to fit either the Big Blue or Big White 10″ Jumbo Housings. Alternative to KX Matrix® CR1 / Pentair CBC-series.
These filters are designed to remove:
- Bad Taste
- VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds)
- Giardia and other Cysts, e.g. Cryptosporidium
Giardia are a family of parasites that can cause Giardiasis, a severe intestinal infection resulting in violent diarrohea, excess gas, cramps, upset stomach and nausea. Cryptosporidium causes Cryptosporidiosis, another parasitic, intestinal disease that can also affect the respiritory tract.
Activated carbon is usually derived from coconut shells, coal or wood and is used for water treatment.
The source substance is heated at a low temperature in the absence of oxygen which results in the removal of volatile compounds. This process is called carbonisation.
Once the carbonisation process is complete, the carbon is activated by heating using steam and oxygen in a controlled environment. The effect of the activation process is to open the carbon structure which creates extreme porosity. As a result, a huge, highly reactive surface area is created. A pound of activated carbon has a surface area of about 125 acres.
The activated carbon screens contaminants and the filter works by adsorption (which means molecules stick to the surface) of organic contaminants. Carbon block filters contain activated carbon particles which have been fused into a uniform block. The carbon particles have enhanced adsorptive capacity and are thus highly efficient.
Carbon Block Water Filter Features
These filters comply with ANSI/NSF53 and 42 requirements. They consist of a Ceramic Activated Carbon Block for Sediment, Chlorine, Cyst (Crytosporidium) & Giardia removal. The Carbon Block Filters effectively remove Chlorine, VOCs, hazardous Chemicals, Pesticides, Odours and improve taste.
They ave a low pressure differential (drop), are physically durable and have a high dirt-holding capacity.
Granular Carbon Water Filter Cartridge
Granular Carbon Filter Features
- Suitable for tank water
- Ideal where water tank supply is topped up with council water
- Granular Activated Carbon Cartridge with Polypropylene Sediment Filtration Pads at each end
- Premium Quality Coconut Shell Activated Carbon cartridge is often used for Reverse Osmosis pre-filtration & many other filtration applications.
- Carbon filtration is excellent for reducing Chlorine, Bad Taste, Odor ∓ Color and can be effective for removal of many chemical contaminants.
- Suitable for use in 10 inch 'Big Blue' housings
Granular Carbon Filter Application Notes
To keep your filter system operating efficiently, remember to replace this cartridge as needed and on a regular basis. When installing a new cartridge, always pass 5-10 litres of water through to waste to flush out carbon fines before using the water. Cartridges are individually wrapped to ensure that they are not contanimated.
The maximum working pressure is 40 psi (differential). The filter element contains a highly porous adsorbent material produced by heating organic matter, such as coal, wood and coconut shell, in the absence of air, which is then crushed into granules. Activated carbon is positively charged and therefore it is able to remove negative ions from the water such as ozone, chlorine, fluorides and dissolved organic solutes by adsorbtion onto the activated carbon's surface. It must be replaced periodically as it will eventually become saturated and unable to absorb. It is not effective in removing heavy metals.
Activated carbon is often used as a filter in water treatment systems, where water is directed downwards through a stationary bed of the substance, leaving organic material to accumulate at the top of the bed. It is also used to lower radon levels in water and is available in powdered form.
