REMOVE Phase

STANDARD IN ALL SYSTEMS

Stage 1: Suspended Solids

Removes/Reduces: Some Sediments, Particulates, Turbidity (ex. rust, sand, dirt, clay)

Stage 2: Large Organics

Removes/Reduces: Some Large Organic Matter (ex. cysts, hair, dust, blood)

How it works.

\
Entry Point

Where water enters the cartridge.

\
Exit Point

Where water exits the cartridge.

\
Top Seal

Prevents water from escaping out the top, forcing it to pass through the filter media.

\
Rifled Center

Directs water entering the cartridge downward and out in a rotating path to help evenly distribute it across the media's inner wall.

\
Filter Media

Tens of thousands of polypropylene microfibers woven into a complex and rigid core.

\
Bottom Seal

Prevents water from escaping out the bottom, forcing it to pass through the filter media.

Mechanics

Water flows into the cartridge and down the rifled center of the woven microfiber media. As the water spirals downward and pressure builds, it is forced outwards through the fibers, subsequently leaving behind any large contaminants. Once it has passed all the way through the cartridge, it fills the outer chamber and then exits through the top.

Mechanical Reduction

Mechanical reduction is simply a sieving process. Water passes through a porous structure, and particles that exceed the size of the pores are left behind. The more depth (or thickness) a filter has, the longer its life span, allowing it to work effectively for a longer period of time. The REMOVE phase utilizes depth filters in order to mechanically remove large contaminants and to extend the life of filters further down the line. 

Contaminant reduction data.

All of our systems include this initial REMOVE phase, and then go on to one of three membrane phases, ULTRA, NANO, or REBOOT, that all exceed this phase’s reduction capabilities (we simply include the REMOVE phase to extend the life of these delicate membrane filters). Click one of the membranes individually to see the cumulative mechanical reduction data, or click here to compare them.
