Ultra-fine porosity (single pore size 0.0001 micron) filter operating on the principle of reverse osmosis. When pure water and saline are separated by a semiconducting membrane that passes only water molecules, due to the pressure (concentration) difference on both sides of the membrane, the water molecules pass to the saline side. This process takes until the salt concentration on both sides equalizes. This process is called direct osmosis. Treatment of highly mineralized water with a reverse osmosis membrane creates a pressure in excess of osmotic and forces water molecules to flow through the membrane in the opposite direction to direct osmosis, that is, from highly mineralized water to the pure water compartment. Membrane holes are much smaller than viruses and bacteria, so they are removed by filtration. Heavy metals, dissolved substances and salts are also removed. The treated water is fed to the mixer and the dirty water is discharged to the sewer. The main parameter defining the membrane characteristic is the permeability. Bandwidth is usually measured in GPD (gallons per day). This shows how much water the membrane can clean in a day. 1 gallon is 3.78 liters (so if the membrane has a permeability of 100 GPD, up to 378 liters of water can be purified per day). The membrane is changed every 24 to 36 months or as needed.
FINAL CARBON FILTERS
The final activated carbon filter goes under the membrane and is the last stage of water purification - removes all flavors or odors, improves the taste of treated water. The filter is changed every 12-24 months or as needed.
PP 5 MICRON FILTERS
Mechanical cleaning filter with the function of physically removing physically to remove sediment, dirt or any particles using a barrier. This filter removes particles larger than 5 microns. PP filters consist of a multilayer microscopic polypropylene fibre. Due to the structure of the fibre pores, dirt is retained. The filter is changed every 6-18 months or as needed.
Carbon block filter consisting of monolithic activated carbon, which removes any organic matter, chlorine, odor and turbidity Compared to the granular carbon filter, the surface area of the carbon block is much larger, as well as the number of active centres, so it is up to 25% more efficient than other types of carbon cartridges. Filters mechanical impurities larger than 3 µm. Carbon cartridges are especially recommended for surface water treatment. The filter is changed every 6-18 months or as needed.
