The filter elements are produced using the latest ceramic techniques to provide a hollow porous ceramic, which is fired at a temperature in excess of 1,000º C. They are designed to operate with water flow going from the outside to the inside of the element. The ceramic shell exhibits a strictly controlled pore structure, so as to provide efficient sub-micron filtration, a proven defense against hard-shelled parasites such as Cryptosporidium as well as pathogenic bacteria. The ceramic also removes other less harmful, but equally unpleasant particulate debris such as rust and dirt. This silver is a material designed to significantly inhibit bacteriological mitosis or grow through.The result is that bacterial growth is inhibited from occurring within the Sterasyl. Ceramic element (which is possible with the other ceramic filter elements). This silver content insures that filtered water contains levels well below those required by international standards. Because of the silver, Sterasyl.
Filter elements do not require sterilization after cleaning. Filter, when used in in-line housings, is certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) as meeting their Standard No 42 for materials.
Water Filtration Element The Sterasyl. Ceramic is the ceramic shell used for the Super Sterasyl. Accordingly, this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of the Sterasyl. Additionally, the bore of the ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water. Filter elements remove suspended solids, parasites, cysts and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%) and reduce organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, SOCs, VOCs and foul tastes and odors.
The top of the Super Sterasyl. Element is closed with a unique ceramic dome. This prevents the possibility of breeching (leakage) , which can occur with filtration elements that are closed with a plastic cap. Whats Hiding in Your Drinking Water?Remove Pathogenic Bacteria: Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, Serratia, E. Coli, Fecal Coliform > 99.99% removal. Remove Cysts (>99.999%): Cryptosporidium Parvum and Giardia Lamblia - 100% removal (based on tests by Arizona State University). Reduce Organic Chemicals: Pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, SOCs, VOCs, trihalomethanes. Reduce Turbidity, Sediment and Particulate. Maximum working pressure: 125 psi Maximum working temperature: 100º F Minimum working temperature: 40º F.
Ceramic filters are manufactured to the following international standards and have been tested and approved by the following independent bodies or agencies. ISO-9000: 2000, Hyder Labs UK, Spectrum Labs UK, WRc Mednenham UK, Clare Microbiology UK, Loughborough University - UK, University of Arizona USA, Thresh, Beale, and Suckling UK, and WRc Gwent UK. Bacterial mitosis and grow-through Mitosis is the name for the usual method of bacterial cell division. This division is characterized by resolving the chromatin of the cell nucleus into a threadlike form that condenses into chromosomes, each of which separates longitudinally into two parts, one part of each chromosome being retained in each of the two new daughter cells. When conditions of growth (cell division) are right proper environmental conditions, temperature, pressure, etc.
And sufficient nutrients, the threadlike forms can penetrate ordinary ceramic structure and create bacterial cells on the inside of ceramic elements. Grade filter elements incorporate pure silver into the porous ceramic shell, which inhibits mitosis or grow-through.
