NanoCeram® nanofiltration filters have a Nominal pore size of 2 microns which give them a high flow rate at minimal pressure drop, but are capable of removing 99.999% (5 LRV) of cysts and bacteria 1 - 4.3 microns in size.
NanoCeram® filters are capable of filtering particulates in water down to 0.2 microns (200 nanometers) Absolute due to the filter's highly electropositive charge. This electropositive charge is capable of attracting all negatively charged particles such as viruses, bacteria, cysts, protozoa and other particles in water down to 30 nanometers.
NanoCeram® exhibits an extremely high filtration efficiency, and will also filter out inorganic (silica) particles, natural organic matter (i.e.,humic acid) not typically removed by carbon, endotoxins, DNA, RNA, 25 nanometer viruses, etc.
NanoCeram® nanofilters deliver the ultimate performance in Turbidity Reduction to clarify water prior to contacting UV sterilization chambers, reverse osmosis membranes, and ½ micron carbon block filters.
All NanoCeram® Filters will be certified to:
NSF/ANSI Standard 42 - Drinking Water Treatment Units - Aesthetic Effects (Class I Particulate Reduction)
NSF/ANSI Standard 53 - Drinking Water Treatment Units-Health Effects (Cyst Reduction)
NSF/ANSI Standard 61 - Drinking Water System Components (Municipal drinking water treatment).
Dirt Holding Capacity (DHC):
The dirt holding/sediment loading capacity of NanoCeram filters is an amazing 580 mg/square inch of filter media!
The DHC of Microglass media is typically 26 mg/square inch, for Meltblown media is typically 3 mg/square inch, and for Membrane, media is typically 2 mg/square inch.
This means the Dirt Holding Capacity of the NanoCeram® filter media are 22, 193, and 290 times greater than the conventional micro glass, meltblown, and membrane media (respectively), providing a greatly extended life cycle and significant cost savings in sub-micron sized particulate removal.
For a 10" cartridge this translates into a total dirt-holding capacity of 261 grams, or just over a half pound.
Applications for Use:
Turbidity reduction before UV sterilization of water. When used as a sediment pre-filter, the nanofiltration of turbidity and particles will increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the UV sterilization of water, because particulates and even turbidity will block and deflect the UV rays from reaching and penetrating all the biological pathogens at their maximum level of effectiveness.
NanoCeram can be used as the ultimate high-efficiency sub-micron pre-filter /sediment filter for reverse osmosis membranes. NanoCeram will increase the efficiency of your RO membrane and help keep the RO membrane surface cleaner for longer periods of time. In industrial RO processes, this will lower the energy cost of pushing the water through the membrane.
NanoCeram can be used as the ultimate high-efficiency sub-micron (We are talking about carbon blocks with a Rating of 0.1-2 microns. It will help protect the carbon filter from fouling, reduce microorganisms reaching the filter, and help keep the filter cartridge cleaner for a longer period of time.
Note: We always recommend that you place at least a 5-micron sediment filter in front of any nano filter or premature clogging of the nanofilter may occur due to its extremely high efficiency at capturing an expanded range of particulates. This will make the NanoCeram last longer and give you more economy. If your "dirt profile" shows you have a lot of particulates in the 1-5 micron range you should also add a1-micronn sediment filter before the NanoCeram
Manufacturer's Note: “Do not use with water that is micro biologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system. Systems certified for cyst reduction may be used on disinfected water that may contain filterable cysts."
