US Water brings the latest in “Disruptive Technology” with our new US Water Disruptor Filter for Bacteria, Virus, Cyst, Tannin, Silica, Endotoxin… and more!
Charged Zeta Filtration or CZF is manufactured with Nano Alumina Fibers that have a Zeta potential of 51 millivolts. A CZF cartridge retains bacteria, virus, cryptosporidium oocysts and even tannin with its strong Zeta Potential. To removes cysts and bacteria, the flow rate is 10 GPM, but if you are removing tannin, the flow is 15 GPM.
Unlike mechanical filters which rely on “pore size” the Charged Zeta Technology literally “secures” the contaminant. It is “absorbed” in a very real way. The filters have a long life and are easily replaceable.
- Cartridge has 222 double o-ring seal for a positive barrier
- System conforms to NSF/ANSI 61 Certified by WQA
- Low pressure drop – typically < 3 PSID (clean)
- Agion® Silver Zeolite Technology protects filter and reduces tastes and odors from microbes
Health and Safety
The CZF media is manufactured from a naturally occurring element called boehmite, which has no known Health Side Effects. In fact, boehmite has long been used as an additive to food products and digestive analgesics. Additionally, it has passed testing for NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 61 for potable water and USP Class VI testing and endotoxin testing.
Electroabsorbative Technology for Water Purification
CZF media is engineered this 51 millivolt charge cover the entire volume and depth of the media. A CZF filter accomplished submicron filtration with a “charge” rather than “pore size” filtration, which allows for virtually zero pressure drop and high flow rates. If you compare the US Water CZF to “ultrafiltration” membranes, you will find dramatically higher flow rates with less pressure drop.
Tannins are notoriously difficult to remove from water. Ion-exchange is a popular way and has been successfully utilized in thousands of cases, but due to high initial costs many consumers are looking for a more economical alternative. The US Water Charged Zeta Filtration or CZF System works where many others fail.
The Disrupter electro-adsorptive filter media takes out a very wide spectrum of contaminants, including bacteria, virus, cysts and Chromium 6. However, iron, sulfur and manganese must be removed ahead of it. In a sense, it is like ultraviolet or UV disinfection in that the water needs to be free of sediment, silt, algae, sand, iron, sulfur and manganese. There are hundreds of organics in a water supply that can impact it’s performance, so there are no guarantees on it’s life expectancy, although in most cases, they last 6 months to a year. Tannins are somewhat problematic. They are easily removed in over 90% of the cases, but occasionally, they are impossible to remove, due to the nature of the tannin itself or due to competing contaminants. The filter has a one year warranty for structural integrity and manufacturing defects, but is not warranted against plugging and/or failing to remove tannin. It’s like a doctor prescribing a medication that does not work for you, but works for most people. When he changes the prescription and prescribes another, he doesn’t refund your former prescription. The Disrupter is amazing, disruptive technology that removes more contaminants than any other filter.
