This unit incorporates the latest High Purity / High Flow (TFC) Reverse Osmosis Membrane to ensure the best possible removal of dissolved solids such as heavy metals, salts, etc. Includes two replaceable Cartridges (a Carbon Block prefilter Cartridge, providing maximum protection for the membrane, and a Compressed Carbon Block chemical removal post filter). Complete with a Tap Connector Assembly (including a Ball Valve), for connection to a laundry cold water tap, or any cold water tap with a ¾" bsp thread. Great tasting, high purity drinking water for the whole family.
How does it work?
Osmosis is a natural process which occurs when 2 solutions
of different concentrations are separated by a semi-permeable membrane, and the lower concentration solution passes through the membrane to the more concentrated solution (e.g. oxygen passes from lungs to blood stream, and plants roots take up nutrients).
REVERSE OSMOSIS PURIFIERS use this process in reverse. Water containing impurities is forced against a synthetic membrane (or semi-permeable membrane). Water
molecules pass through the membrane leaving dissolved impurities on the surface. The membrane also acts as an "ultra filter" to mechanically remove particle matter down to it's pore size of approximately 0.0005 microns (1 micron = 1 thousandth of a millimetre).
All pollutants are flushed from the membrane, thus ensuring the membrane does not
saturate as with other filtration methods. And, unlike distillation, which produces
'dead' water, the RO Membrane has a strong affinity to oxygen producing 'lively'
Mains water pressure of more than 50 p.s.i. is all that is required for this remarkable
process to work.
REVERSE OSMOSIS is the latest 'State-Of-The-Art' (and most effective) water purification process.
Advantages of choosing a CraftBrewer REVERSE OSMOSIS PURIFIER
• Pollutants are flushed away (no premature saturation as with other filtration systems).
• Reduced incidence of asthma attacks, eczema, etc., caused by allergic reactions to water borne pollutants.
• Reduced risk of cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, damage to nervous systems, digestive systems, etc.
• Ultra high purity water for around 5 cents a litre.
• Australian manufactured at a great price.
