    Melted-Spray Sediment Filters for Counter Top System

     

     

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

    A Melted-spray filter cartridge 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.

    Sediment filters are rated by a micron number. A micron is a unit of length that is equal to one millionth (10-6) of a meter. The most common sediment filters available are 1, 5, 10, 20, 30, 50 and 100um (micron) filters. The micron number refers to the largest dirt particle that will pass through the filter.

    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.

    Additional Option 

    Housing Spanner

    Over time the housing can become tight, and difficult to open by hand. If you do not already have one available to open the housings, we would recommend adding a housing spanner. 

    The Housing Spanner will allow you to gain more "purchase" on the housing, allowing you to open it more easily.
