WWIF Begins South Africa Expedition

Wishing Well Intl. Foundation

Group aims to deploy 33 biofilters during week-long trip

Representatives of Wishing Well International Foundation (WWIF) from the US and South Africa laid out the itinerary details for a mini expedition start May 22 in Nelspruit, South Africa.

During the week-long trip, the group will work with local organizations to deploy 33 biofilters to provide clean, safe drinking water for hundreds of people for 10 years. The trip will also provide an opportunity for WWIF to continue planning and scouting for next year’s big event, the 10-1-10 Africa Expedition.

Company Reference: 

The EF-835-1 ONE Cartridge Tank filter is designed for higher flow rates and contamination retention capacities. It has been updated with a bottom drain with swivel design. The filter is interchangeable with any existing ONE Cartridge product.

Sediment Reduction Media

Company Reference: 

Micro Z media reduces sediment in automatic backwashing filtration systems, increasing loading capacity and enhancing service flow rates. With increased porosity, it is a single-media replacement for media types including anthracite, sand and garnet, and achieves nominal particle size reduction of 3 to 5 µ and service flow rates up to 20 gpm per sq ft.

Filter Housings & Cartridges

Company Reference: 

High Flow filter housings and cartridges are designed for flow rates up to 500 gpm in a single-element configuration. They offer 2- to 12-round configurations and flows up to 3,500 gpm, horizontally or vertically. The housings allow for a smaller footprint and greater flow rates. The large, single-cartridge pleated filters provide up to 100 sq ft of surface area. They are thermally bonded and made from FDA-compliant polypropylene microfiber.

Mini-Rack Systems

Company Reference: 

UVDynamics mini-rack systems combine filtration and UV disinfection into one affordable, easy-to-install whole-home drinking water system. Manufactured from 10-gauge HR commercial grade steel with a powder-coat finish, the system will appear new for many years. Available in flow rates from 6 to 20 gpm with up to 3 filter sumps (choose from two styles in either 10 in. or 20 in.), these systems speed installation, are easy to service and provide lasting value.

Multi-Bag Filter

Company Reference: 

The Model 60 is fitted with 37 perforated stainless steel baskets designed to hold disposable or cleanable filter bags. The pressure rating for all models is 150 psi (ASME code stamp available).

Carbon Block Filters Provide Protection from Lead & Other Contaminants

Publication Date: 
April 6, 2016

United Filters Intl.’s collection of NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 53-approved carbon block filters remove or reduce many contaminants from fresh water. Manufactured of high-quality coconut-shell carbon, the filters are available in six models, from .5- to 10-micron nominal ratings. They are an economical solution for point-of-entry and point-of-use water filtration systems

Filtration: The Perfect Cup

In recent years, coffee has become one of the most popular drinks on the market, with the average American consuming 3.1 cups of coffee each day. The focus of the perfect cup of coffee is often on the bean itself, when in reality, water quality greatly affects both the experience and taste. It is important to understand the vital role water plays in coffee brewing.

Company Reference: 

Model 4 offers an optional T-bolt closure, which includes an integrated handle within the hinged cover lid. It features low pressure drops; permanently piped housings; carbon steel or stainless steel (304 or 316) construction for housings; easy-to-clean and -change filters; O-ring seals (Buna N, EPR, Viton or Teflon); an ASME code stamp on select models; and pressure ratings of 150, 300 or 500 psi on the T-bolt cover.


Company Reference: 

ULTRA-D submicron depth filters use proprietary, patented, electroadsorptive media technology that removes pathogens and inorganic contaminants through electro-adhesion and ion exchange. This technology allows nonwoven media to produce filtration efficiency comparable to UF but at low pressure drop, with high flow rates and loading capacity working equally well in freshwater, brackish water or saltwater.
