How activated charcoal filters dirty water in our water filters.

Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal, or activated carbon, removes contamination through a process called adsorption. Pollutant molecules in the water are trapped inside the pore structure, or micropores, of the charcoal surface. Every particle of charcoal has a very large pore structure which means you get maximum possible exposure to the contaminated water. One pound of activated charcoal contains a surface area of approximately 100 acres. Activated charcoal removes chlorine, sediment, chemicals, iron, lead, taste, odor and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

Our water filter uses hollow fiber membranes to remove bacteria from water.

Hollow Fiber Membrane

Hollow fiber membranes, or Ultrafiltration, are used to remove particulate and molecules from contaminated water. Hollow fiber works through size exclusion. The hollow fiber tubes have thousands of tiny holes (0.1 microns) that block 99.9999% of harmful bacteria, Giardia, E. coli, protozoan cysts, Cryptosporidium and more. All of these organisms are too large to fit through the 0.1 micron holes. Some of benefits of using hollow fiber are; there are no chemicals required, you can backflush the fibers to remove particulate and increase life of the filter, hollow fiber exceeds regulatory standards of water quality, and there is no shelf life for the fiber.

Hollow fiber is used in many different industries, including, chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturing, food and beverage processing, blood dialysis, and waste water treatment.
