Carbon is an extremely versatile and highly effective water treatment medium. It has immense surface area. A single pound of granular activated carbon has a filtering surface area equivalent to 125 acres! It is the best known treatment for organic chemicals, VOCs, pesticides, herbicides, chlorine and its by-products. It is also an unchallenged taste-and-odor improver. When arranged in solid carbon or extruded carbon block format, it also provides very high quality particulate filtration, in some cases down into the sub-micron level. Carbon filters can be made of varying materials including coconut shells which provide an eco-friendly solution for drinking water filtrations systems.
Reverse Osmosis is a water treatment process that removes undesirable materials from water by using pressure to force the water molecules through a semipermeable membrane. This drinking water filtration system is called "reverse" osmosis because the pressure forces the water to flow in the reverse direction (from the concentrated solution to the dilute solution) to the flow direction (from the dilute to the concentrated) in the process of natural osmosis.
Reverse osmosis water dispensers can remove 90% of total dissolved solids (TDS) from water and can provide the purest water available for your business. Reverse osmosis water filters remove a wide range of contaminants and minerals from your drinking water, including sand, chlorine, fluoride, cryptosporidium, and hexavalent chromium.
In a reverse osmosis water dispenser, your regular water pressure pushes the water through a membrane and additional filters to remove impurities, which are then flushed down the drain.
Untreated water passes through a filter medium which traps suspended matter. Sediment filters can remove insoluble (not dissolvable) or suspended iron and manganese. Sediment filters are often used with other processes such as activated carbon filtration, reverse osmosis, aeration, ozonation and chlorination.
Putting a sediment filter in front of an activated carbon filter may greatly increase the life of the carbon filter.
Sediment Filtration is an effective method for reducing turbidity in water caused by the presence of suspended solids such as silt, sand or clay. Sediment Filters remove suspended matter such as sand, dirt, rust, loose scale, clay or organic material from the water.
Multi Stage Filtration
Ozone Water Purification is the most effective FDA approved water purification method for eradicating toxins that are found in water. Ozone, also known as O3, is a highly powerful oxidant that inactivates pesticides, fungus, organic materials, contaminates and viruses much more potently than chlorine.
Ozone Sanitization kills bacterial growth by diffusing ozone into the water in the holding tank.
Ultraviolet (UV) Light systems destroy 99.99% of harmful microorganisms without adding chemicals or changing your water’s taste or odor. UV water purification is usually used with other forms of filtration such as reverse osmosis systems, activated carbon filters, or sediment filters.
UV systems are used to kill bacteria primarily in untreated well water systems or where the water quality is uncertain.
