Ceramic sediment filter cartridge 10 inch, 0.2-0.9 microns absolute fineness:
Although there are several methods of production are the basic raw material, is almost always referred to as celiet or diatomeënaarde. Remains of one-celled diatoms from a prehistoric era. This powder is heated under high temperatures and formed into ceramic filter patterns.
The delicacy of this powder makes it possible to very porous, yet strong filter cartridges to do with tens of millions of pores. Pores so small that the molecular structure of almost all organic and inorganic substances (> 0.5 micron) are too large to penetrate.
Micro-organisms like bacteria, viruses and parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia, also the E-coli and Legionella pneumophila be stoped from the rain water and filtered.
This prevents filtration with a 0.2 – 0.9 micron ceramic filter of the risk of diarrhea, infections, respiratory diseases, disease of Weill and many other symptoms.
The ceramic filter, how long will it
Over the life of filters and filter cartridges, falls very much to say. However full answer is not there, the useful life is, of course, depending on the degree of contamination of the water supply.
