Replacement filters for sinks, flick mix, caravans, coffee, ice machines etc. HOW DOES IT WORK There are two principals’ the mechanism by which activated carbon removes contaminants from water. : Adsorption, and catalytic reduction, a process involving the attraction of negatively – charged contaminant icon to the positively – charged activated carbon. Organic compounds are removed be absorption and residual disinfectants such as chlorine and chloramines are removed by catalytic reduction. Carbon is highly porous and 500g of carbon contains a surface area of roughly 0.5km2 and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon has a slightly electro-positive charge added to it, as the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative icons of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules. Activated carbon filters remove / reduce chlorine, many volatile organic compounds (VOC), pesticides and herbicides, blue green algae, organics sediment, rust, mud, slime, sand as well as benzene, Trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man- made chemicals found in tap water. Some activated carbon filters are moderately effective at removing some, but not all heavy metals. Some iron, manganese, and hydrogen sulfide will also be removed by these higher quality activated carbon filters. Sediment pre-filters also prolong the activate carbon cartridge life by eliminating gross contaminants that would otherwise clog the activated plate at the bottom absorbs bacteria, including e-coli, and microbial cysts like giardia and cryptosporidium. Activated carbon filters are usually rated by size of the particles they are able to remove, measured in microns, and generally range from 50 microns (least effective) down to 0.5 microns (most effective) which is what is used in our filters. The most common carbon types used in water filtration are bituminous, wood and coconut shell carbons. While coconut shell carbon typically costs 20% more than others it is generally regarded as the most effective of the three. Activated carbon filters require very little maintenance, however, it is very important to ensure that filter replacement schedules are followed to ensure proper filtration at all times. Do not wait for bad taste and odors to return to the water before deciding the filter needs replacement as this is an indication that the filter is no longer able to completely remove contaminants and that it has surpassed its service life . ARE YOU DRINKING ENOUGH WATER?. Our body consists for a large part of water. It is important to drink enough water so you won’t dehydrate in the warm summer months WHEN YOU ARE DEHYDRATED When you are sweating profoundly your body will lose a lot of water but also the essential salts.
