Reverse Osmosis Filtration is the industry standard when it comes to filtering water to an ultra pure level. This form of filtration removes 99.9% of all impurities from water including any suspended solids, dissolved minerals and most
The Aquaphor Morion Reverse Osmosis Water Filter represents the latest in reverse osmosis technology and is also one of the smallest systems available on the market today. Due to its revolutionary design, the Aquaphor Morion will easily outperform the older style reverse osmosis systems on capacity, water efficiency and overall running costs.
The Aquaphor Morion Reverse Osmosis Water Filter takes up half the space of the older style reverse osmosis systems allowing it to fit in the tightest of spaces with ease. This system uses no electricity meaning that its running costs are substantially lower than any of the electrically operated systems!
The Quick Fit Design makes replacing cartridges a breeze, simply twist and snap, it's that simple! The water on water pressurised storage tank allows higher storage capacity over a wider pressure range meaning that you and your family will always have an ample supply of clean and fresh drinking water.
The Aquaphor Morion uses a state of the art composite bacterial 0.1 micron post-filtration cartridge as the last stage of filtration which prevents backward contamination to the system and also stops any bacterial growth that may otherwise present itself. This ensures that not only is your water filtered to an ultra pure state, but it is kept microbially safe for you and your family to enjoy anytime!
Activated carbon is a form of carbon that has been processed to make it extremely porous and thus has a very large surface area. Just one gram of activated carbon typically has a surface area of approximately 500 m2,
as determined by nitrogen gas adsorption.
Activated carbon is useful in drinking water treatment because it acts as an adsorbent (a process of chemical or physical attraction), and effectively removes particles and organics from water. Organics react with many disinfectants, especially chlorine, and cause the formation of disinfection by products (DBP's). DBP's are often carcinogenic and therefore highly undesirable. Organic substances are composed of two basic elements, carbon and hydrogen. Because organic chemicals are often responsible for taste, odour, and colour problems, activated carbon filtration is generally used to improve these parameters.
Activated carbon filtration also removes chlorine and other chemicals that can be harmful if present in high quantities. Included in this category are pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), trihalomethanes (THM's are a by-product of chlorine which is widely used in most public drinking water systems for disinfection), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), industrial solvents (halogenated hydrocarbons), polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH's) and benzene.
Radon gas can also be removed from water by activated carbon filtration, but actual removal rates of Radon for different types of activated carbon filtration equipment have not been established.
