Big-Bubba non-metallic filter housings are an economical replacement for stainless steel filtration equipment because of its non-metallic construction compared to today’s high cost of stainless steel! The rugged, glass-reinforced polyproplyene won’t chip, rust or dent. And, because all wetted surfaces are non-metallic, Big-Bubba filter housings are ideal when chemical compatibility is an issue or for sea water applications. A full line of proprietary cartridges with double o-rings are easy to service, replace and guarantees repeat business.
The HQCBC series of filters offers performance in reducing sediment, color, soluble organic compounds such as pesticides, dioxins, and volatile organic compounds such as chloroform and petrochemicals. With uniform and solid media structures, HQCBC filters do not exhibit problems such as channeling, fluidizing, bypassing or the release of carbon fines.
The Watts Dual Media Water Softener and Filter utilizes Vortech patented distributor technology to maximize media efficiency with two separate media chambers in one tank. Activated carbon for pre-treatment removes chloramines, chlorine, taste, odors and extends ion exchange resin life. High efficiency ion exchange resin increases efficiency and enhances performance with high iron content water.
Water Inc. was founded in 1977 to manufacture and distribute high-quality non-commodity products to the water improvement industry. In 2008, Water Inc. partnered with 3M to develop Body Glove water filtration products. The filters employ the latest filtration technologies and have the first truly recyclable cartridge. A portion of every sale goes to support the Surf Rider Foundation.
The new patent-pending Filter Monitor (model FM-1) is an inline combination timer and volumizer for multistage filtration or purification systems. The battery-powered FM-1 has five timers for a five-stage system, as well as a water volumizer and programmable set points and alarms for each function. It has an optional flow switch and faucet light disc and is backed by a one-year factory warranty.
The new Carbflex OAC-20BB oil absorbing filter cartridge is an efficient solution for reducing hydrocarbon contamination and other pollutants. It is constructed from modified cellulose-based filter media for exceptional absorption, high flow rates and low pressure drop, and allows the filter media to chemically bond with hydrocarbons instantly, absorbing up to 95% of total hydrocarbons in a single pass.
The NSF drinking water treatment unit testing and certification program includes standards to address the wide variety of point-of-use (POU) and point-of-entry (POE) drinking water treatment technologies on the market today, with more than 3,000 systems and 2,000 components currently certified under seven NSF/ANSI standards. These seven technology-specific standards are listed in Table 1.
