US Water Electro-Absorptive Nanofiber Filter Uses Mechanical Filtration And Electro-Adhesion Utilizing Cutting-Edge Technology
The US Water Interceptor Pre-Filter has a 5 outer filter layer (which can be washed off if sediment accumulated). Inside the filter is another layer of pleated material manufactured of Nano Alumina Fibers that have a Zeta potential of 51 millivolts. Many contaminants are actually "magnetically" removed from the water supply and "secured" in the Charged Filter.
Much More Than A Pre-Filter - It's A Sub-Micron Filter
- Removes Sand
- Removes Sediment
- Removes Silt
- Reduces Chromium 6
- Removes 99.9% Bacteria
- Removes 99% Cysts
- Removes Silica
- Removes Lead
The US Water Disruptor 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.
- 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)
- Turbidity < 3 NTU
- pH 5-9.5
- Iron < .3 ppm
- Manganese < .05 ppm
This systems performance is dependent upon incoming water quality and factors such as iron, sulfur, manganese, sediment and other particulates need to be addressed ahead of the US Water Disruptor Pre-Filter. Life expectancy of the filter varies with the water supply, but many users experience filter change intervals in excess of a year when coupled with proper pre-treatment
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.
