Inline 5 Micron Sediment Filter (Thread Type)

 

The Sediment filter is usually the first stage in a water filtration system. It serves to remove visible dirt particles such as mud, iron rust, dust, and sand from the water.

The inline sediment filter has a multi-layer structure and is self-bonded, thus not making use of a chemical binder.

After passing through this filter, the water may appear to be clean. However, looks can be deceiving and most water contaminants are smaller than what our eyes can see. These contaminants may not be removable by the sole use of a sediment filter.

 

These inline sediment Filters come with a 1/4" Female thread on the inlet and outlet. 

This type of inline 5-micron filter also has a slightly higher surface area than the quick fit type inline sediment filter and so will last slightly longer than the quick fit type.

 

However, keep in mind that it does require more space and a larger clip/bracket for fitting as well.   

 

The inline sediment filters, filter the water down to 5 Micron.

To put this in perspective, look at the sizes of the following objects:

  • Eye of a needle ……………………………………….1230 micron
  • Dot (.)…………………………………………………………615 micron        
  • Table salt……………………………………………………100 micron
  • Human Hair (average diameter)………………….60 micron
  • White Blood Cell…………………………………………..25 micron
  • Red Blood Cell………………………………………………..8 micron
  • Spider Web………………………………………………...2 - 3 micron
  • Bacteria (harmful)……………………………………0.3 - 2 micron

With a nominal sediment filter, 60 – 98% of all the particles larger than the specified filter micron number are removed.
