Due to the depth or thickness of the filter and the graduated layers more contaminants are removed while prolonging the life of the filter. They are made in the USA from food grade spun bonded polypropylene, surfactant, binder and adhesive free. The majority of whole of house systems in the rural applications use 20 micron sediment filters. If an Ultra Violet System is being installed a 5 micron or less sediment filter will be required. Suitable for commercial or residential use.
Polyspun Sediment cartridges offer a simple means of filtration.
They are made from spun bonded polypropylene, the manufacturing technique of these cartridges results in no centre core to the filter, thus not restricting the filter performance. The materials also provide a resilient barrier to bacterial/chemical influence – preventing any build of unwanted waste (e.g. algae).
These sediment filters are compatible with most liquids and are highly effective for sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae removal.
Replacement of this cartridge is recommended approximately every 6-12 months, dependent on usage and the water quality.
These cartridges are compatible within whole house/high flow filter systems. These filter systems are designed to remove contaminants from the entire water supply to your home – providing near pure water to all the faucets/showers in the residence.
The micron rating of a filter cartridge determines the ability of the filter's media to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to. For example, a filter that is marked or rated "10 micron" has some capability to capture particles as small as 10 micrometers. Although, the micron rating does not determine the exact efficiency of contaminant holding capability of the filter, it will help you determine which filter is most suitable according to your water supply.
