WHAT IS A SEDIMENT?

Sediment is any particulate matter that can be transported by fluid flow and which eventually is deposited as a layer of solid particles on the bed or bottom of a body of water or other liquid.
Sedimentation is the deposition by settling of a suspended material.
In a water plant these particles may be rust flakes from the water pipes, sand grains, small pieces of organic matter, clay particles, or any other small particles in the water supply.

Water that has a high sediment level can change the aesthetic value of the finished beverage. It also can have a detrimental effect on the performance of your equipment. Sediment can cause blockages in the strainers, flow controls and even the solenoids inside your equipment.

A sediment filter acts as a sieve to remove these particles. The important thing to keep in mind about sediment filters is that they reduce sediment. They don't remove chemicals or heavy metals or make the water taste or smell better.



WHAT IS ACTIVATED CARBON?
Carbon is an extremely porous material that attracts and holds a wide range of harmful contaminants. Activated carbon is carbon which has a slight electro-positive charge added to it, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. As the water passes over the positively charged carbon surface, the negative ions of the contaminants are drawn to the surface of the carbon granules.

HOW IT WORKS
There are two principal mechanisms by which activated carbon removes contaminants from water; adsorption, and catalytic reduction, a process involving the attraction of negatively-charged contaminant ions to the positively-charged activated carbon. Organic compounds are removed by adsorption and residual disinfectants such as chlorine and chloramines are removed by catalytic reduction.

APPLICATIONS
Activated carbon filtration is very common in a number of home water treatment systems. It can be used as a standalone filter to reduce or eliminate bad tastes and odors, chlorine, and many organic contaminants in municipal (pre-treated or chlorinated) water supplies to produce a significantly improved drinking water. It is also very commonly used as a pre-treatment as part of a reverse osmosis system to reduce many organic contaminants, chlorine, and other items that could foul the reverse osmosis membrane. 0.5 micron carbon block filters are commonly used to remove cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium.

What are Ceramic Filter Cartridges?
Ceramic filter cartridges are very fine microfiltration cartridges that are designed to remove coliform bacteria (such as E. coli), parasites, cysts and fine particles down to 0.3 microns. Ceramic cartridges are cleanable and reusable, making them an excellent choice for use with untreated waters such as lake, river or well water


Are all ceramic cartridges the same?
No. Rainfresh ceramic water filter cartridges are manufactured in Canada to exacting standards and have a micron rating of 0.3 micron absolute - the tightest ceramic cartridges in the world! What's more - they are certified to the highest industry standards - NSF/ANSI 53 and 42, which include testing for material safety & performance.
