Sediment & Carbon Filtration
Remove suspended solids, chlorine, taste and odour.
What is Sediment & Carbon Filtration?
Carbon filtration specifically targets the removal of taste and odour from water.
Sediment filtration is primarily used as a final polish to remove in finer detail, any remaining suspended solids in the water supply.
Carbon filtration is used to remove taste and odour from water by absorbing the organics as the water passes through.
Carbon filtration can be used in FRP tanks for large scale filtration or by 5 micron filters used within plastic filter housings.
Since the primary purpose is removal of organics, once the carbon is saturated it requires replacing.
Primarily used as a final polish to remove in finer detail, any remaining suspended solids in the water supply.
Cartridge filters are rated in microns to signify what level of suspended solids they are able to filter out.
The sediment cartridges can filter suspended solids from 20 micron to as low as 0.5 micron. Specialist cartridge filters can be used to filter even more suspended solids to as low as 0.2 micron.
The filters are usually built with a gradual decrease of filtration efficiency such as 5 micron – 1 micron – 0.5 micron if required.
