For the BelKraft 6000 Whole house
The BelKraft ceramic is a highly efficient ceramic micro filter which provides genuine sub micron filtration of drinking water.
This ceramic is manufactured with the highly consistent and controlled pore structure necessary to remove a wide range of water borne contaminants over the life of the cartridge.
In addition to fine particulate matter, bacteria, cysts and turbidity are removed to a high level of efficiency. The incorporation of silver locked within the ceramic structure inhibits the growth of bacteria and gives each cartridge enhanced bacteriostatic and self sterilizing properties for safe handling and cleaning. Absolute filtration 0.9 µm. (0.5 µm. ANSI standard).
Most chemical contaminants can be reduced by the means of a carbon filter ( extruded block form filters ). Activated carbon filters are not to be relied on virus and bacteria reduction in fact, if not changed often they can become a breeding ground for bacteria . While iodine is still the most effective chemical treatment against virus and bacteria however it is virtually useless against protozoa like amoebae, giardia and cryptosporidium . If ingested over an extended period of time it can be harmful to your health. Chlorine is used in many countries for the treatment of drinking water . It is a known fact that chlorine will react with organic matter in the water to form the cancer causing thihalomethanes (THM’s). Just like iodine, chlorine is not effective in killing protozoa. They will both decompose quickly and can not offer a long term protection.
