Omnipure K Series Water Filter
The Omnipure K-Series inline filter features 1/4" Quick-Connect compression fittings that allow for installation and replacement in a matter of seconds without the use of tools.
The Omnipure K-Series Quick-Connect fittings are molded directly into the filter body and cap as a single unit, reducing the chance for weeping or seepage. Cap and body are spin-welded together producing a smooth, consistent seal without the use of glues or binders that can cause contamination.
The Omnipure K2505-JJ is a 5 Micron Sediment Filter.
One of the primary uses of the K2505-JJ Water Filter is as a system component. Systems can be designed to incorporate the various lengths and diameters - either all the same size or intermixed - to meet specific filtration needs.
The Omnipure K2505-JJ Water Filter can be used in ice makers, refrigerators, beverage equipment, drinking fountains, under the counter systems, R.O.Systems and in conjunction with purification systems.
The Omnipure K2505-JJ inline water filter is a 5 micron sediment filter used to reduce dirt, sand, and sediment.
Carbon filtering is a method of filtering that uses activated carbon to remove contaminants and impurities, taste and odour using chemical adsorption.
Each granule of carbon provides a large surface area structure, allowing contaminants the greatest possible exposure to the active sites within the filter media. One pound (450 g) of activated carbon contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres (40 Hectares).
Activated carbon works via a process called adsorption, whereby pollutant molecules in the fluid to be treated are trapped inside the pore structure of the carbon . Carbon filtering is commonly used for water purification, in air purifiers and industrial gas processing. It is also used in a number of other applications, including respirator masks, the purification of sugarcane and in the recovery of precious metals, especially gold.
Active charcoal carbon filters are most effective at removing chlorine, sediment, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), taste and odour from water. They are not effective at removing minerals, salts, and dissolved inorganic compounds. Reverse Osmosis is the best filtration for dissolved compounds.
Typical particle sizes that can be removed by carbon filters range from 0.5 to 50 micrometres. However, the amount and quality of carbon is also very important factor. The particle size will be used as part of the filter description. The efficacy of a carbon filter is also based upon the flow rate regulation. When the water is allowed to flow through the filter at a slower rate, the contaminants are exposed to the filter media for a longer amount of time.
There are 2 predominant types of carbon filters used in the filtration industry: powdered block filters and granular activated filters. In general, carbon block filters are more effective at removing a larger number of contaminants, based upon the increased surface area of carbon. Many carbon filters also use secondary media such as silver to prevent bacteria growth within the filter. Alternatively, the activated carbon itself may be impregnated with silver to provide this bacteriostatic property.
