The IsoTwist PureWaterMachine is an under-sink RO filter system optimized to treat city water using the existing water pressure. It makes up to 50 gpd of great-tasting water while taking up less space. The proprietary twist-off disposable filters are designed to make installation and replacement quick, easy and sanitary. Choose four or five stages of filtration to ensure premium water taste and quality. The system comes ready to install with connection hardware, tubing, faucet and instruction manual.
The ChloraBlock cartridge filter provides four times the chloramine-reducing capacity and twice the chlorine-reducing capacity of standard carbon blocks. Key features include a large quantity of catalytically active nitrogen groups for effective chloramine reduction, a binder system that maximizes the availability of catalytic sites and 1-µ nominal filtration. The filter is suited for commercial, industrial and residential POU applications.
The new Vertex PureChill line of PureWaterCoolers are two-temperature dispensers that use PureChill technology to eliminate the need for an open reservoir for cold water storage. Three models offer filtered water that is chilled on demand when it passes through the cooling chamber to the faucet. The closed system keeps contaminants out, so there is no need for in-tank sanitization.
The design of water treatment systems often is based on the application of current solutions. Determining the best system at the time of installation can be done with information gained on site, or from experience harvested from other similar, successful applications.
Process water system combines traditional & next-generation technologies
The reality of North America’s aging water infrastructure is that the end product can be less than desirable in spite of best efforts. Decades-old drinking water and wastewater pipe is prone to leaks, which could in turn lead to broken water mains surrounded by raw sewage, potentially contaminating drinking water. This water then is sent to homes and businesses for consumption, food preparation and bathing.

POU Series housings and filters, part of the ONE Filtration Simplified product offering, are designed for simple and easy installation while being ecofriendly. The filter housing is reusable once the internal cartridge has reached its useful life. The high-capacity, high-flow filters with low pressure drop feature Direct Connect installation to connect directly to the kitchen or bathroom cold water faucet for full-flow filtration.
The PUR Ultimate Series of filter pitchers comes in three models: 7-cup, 7-cup with LED indicator, and 11-cup with LED indicator. The pitchers have a sleek, modern design composed of BPA-free components. The filters use Maxion technology, a blend of carbon and ion exchange materials that removes contaminants from water. LED indicators alert users when filters are ready to be changed.
The technologies used for household water treatment in developing countries are vastly different from those used in the U.S. The reason is simple: the lack of a water treatment infrastructure or even indoor plumbing in developing rural communities. In this environment, where there are no faucets or water service pipe, and water fetched from local waterways may be contaminated with human and animal waste, many point-of-use (POU) solutions like carbon filters and reverse osmosis units cannot be utilized effectively.
