Two-Stage Filtration Process
The Twin Countertop system provides a supreme quality, cost effective and portable method of water filtration, removing all contaminants of concern to the user including fluoride and chloramines.
Stage 1 – Fluoride Cartridge Made in USA
The system’s fluoride removal media is the same mineral that rubies and sapphires (corundum) are made from, in crystalline form. The process ‘selective adsorption’ is a physical/ chemical reaction whereby the fluoride ions are removed by binding to the media’s oxidised surface.
This highly porous media has a large surface area of 200 meters² per gram for optimal filtration.
Stage 2 – UltraCeram Ultracarb Cartridge Made in UK
The second stage filter cartridge performs a dual purpose.
- The ceramic outer shell is made from Diatomaceous Earth formed from millions of microscopic silicone shells – compressed to give a 0.5 micron absolute rating to remove the finest sediment, bacteria and parasites. Impregnated with silver ions the ceramic media has enhanced bacteriostatic and self sterilizing properties to inhibit bacteria growth.
- The carbon block inner core is NSF tested to remove chlorine, chloramines, bad taste and odour to NSF/ANSI 42 and chemicals, pesticides and heavy metals to NSF/ANSI 53.
