BACinix™
General information
Bacinix nanosilver technology protects you and your family
from bacteria growth!
1. Enzyme disruption
Silver ions binds with various enzymes disrupting metabolic processes.
2. Cell membrane disruption
Silver ions penetrate the bacterial cell wall and lysis of the cell membrane.
3. DNA damage
Silver ions bind to DNA. This prevents two strands from separation and thus cell replication.
4. Ribosome denaturation
Binding with ribosomes prevents from protein synthesis and results in degradation of the plasma membrane.
Innovative BACinix™
Antimicrobial Nanosilver Technology
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) consumption of biologically contaminated water is responsible for 2,2 million diarrheal disease deaths
around the world each year (some sources claim that it is approximately 3,4 millions). Most of these are children under 5 year of age.
According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) biologically contaminated water is the main
reason for death among population. Consumption of such water is responsible for 2,2 million
diarrheal disease deaths around the world each year (some sources claim that it is approximately
3,4 millions). Most of these are children under 5 year of age. This problem is mostly noticed in third
world countries, suffering from overpopulation.
Recent progress in science allowed the development of many substances and methods, which may
help in struggle against pathogens and stop these terrifying statistics. Unfortunatelly we are unable
to use these methods every time we want. Moreover pathogens can quickly evolve and develop
resistance to these biocydes. This situation lead to the development of totally new microbiologically
active agent. Solution came from unexpected side – nanotechnology and its rapid development
during last years.
Nanotechnology is a branch of science which deals with studying and developing various
srtuctures with nanometric sizes (hardly larger that the dimensions of a single atom or particle).
These structures cannot be seen with a naked eye. They can only be seen using sophisticated
microscopes. The term “nano” can be attributed to the size of these structures. Nanometer is one
billion (10-9) of meter. For example the diameter of a human hair is 17-180 micrometers which
equals 17000 to 180000 nanometers.
A combination of this branch of science with a knowledge about microbiologically active substances
has led to the development of totally new substance – silver nanoparticles.
Antibacterial properties of silver were known in antiquity. Even the father of a modern medicine –
Hippocrates, referred about its beneficial properties. Silver as a bactericidal agent was used to the
middle 30's of XX century, when penicillin was dioscovered. Fot the next several decades silver as a
antimicrobial agent was forgotten. The change in point of view occured, when the newest
generations of antibiotics were ineffective against pathogens.
Recently many products contains silver nanoparticles. Nanosilver has many advantages. In
contrast to commonly used antibiotics, pathogens cannot develop resistatnce against it. It is
biocompatibile (well tolerated by hyman organism) and causes no immune response.
Nanosilver is so effective because its mechanism of action involves simultaneous attack on the
pathogen in several different places:
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids. Silver
nanoparticles change their structure (create disulfide bridges between aminoacids). It
disrupts so called respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous exchange (breathe)
which lead to its death
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall leading to immediate death of bacterial cell
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two strands from
separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of this action
is still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes. Disruption of
metabolic processes prevents cell growth.
AQUAFILTER BACinix™ antimicrobial technology prevents from microbiological growth of
bacteria, both gram-positive (e.g. S. aureus) and gram-negative (e.g. E. coli, Legionella).
Bacteriostatic properties of filters and filter elements enriched with BACinix™ nanosilver
technology were confirmed during independent laboratory tests. The samples were tested
against E. coli and S. aureus according to most commonly used Japanese standard:
JIS Z 2801:2000 – Antimicrobial products – Tests for antimicrobial activity and efficacy
An active agent is added during the manufacturing process, thus it is dispersed evenly
throughout the entire cartridge. This in turn increases hygienic properties and can reduce odor
and inhibits pathogen growth.
Utilization of nanosilver in both filters and filter housings gives you and your love ones additional
protection against waterborne pathogens and the diseases they cause.
An active agent used in our products ensures low risk of bacterial resistance, no problem with
migration/leaching. It is also compliant with EPA – FIFRA (USA) and the new European BPD
regulations.

NI-212-CENT-GR-AB
Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water
enters each stage of filtration, it is supplemented with
traces of nanosilver equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This
trace quantity of nanosilver imparts bacteriostatic agents and restricts
the propagation of micro-organisms inside the filtration system, which
in turn enhances shelf life and protects from future contamination.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water enters each
stage of filtration, it is supplemented with traces of nanosilver
equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of nanosilver imparts
bacteriostatic agents and restricts the propagation of microorganisms inside the filtration system, which in turn enhances shelf
life and protects from future contamination.
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens in several routes:
NOTE
- Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
- Water filtration systems can help reduce the presence of contaminants. In addition, some water filtration systems can help reduce the

1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids. Silver nanoparticles
change their structure (create disulfide bridges between aminoacids). It disrupts so called
respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous exchange (breathe) which lead to its
death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to immediate death of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two strands from
separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of this action is
still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes. Disruption of
metabolic processes prevents cell growth.

General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCPP-AB series cartridges are a upgraded
version of well known FCPP cartridges.
They posess all of the advantages of FCPP and none of
their drawbacks. The cartridges were made of high quality
polypropylene string wound on a core which strenghten

During the manufacturing process, antibacterial substance
based on silver nanoparticles was added. In order to
distinguish this premium product from similar available on
the market a special pigment was added to the mixture.
Addition of the components during the manufacturing
process allowed their even dispersion in the entire
cartridge (in contrast to many competitive products which
are only sprayed on the surface).

stage of filtration, it is supplemented with traces of nanosilver
equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of nanosilver imparts
bacteriostatic agents and restricts the propagation of microorganisms inside the filtration system, which in turn enhances shelf
life and protects from future contamination.
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids. Silver nanoparticles
change their structure (create disulfide bridges between aminoacids). It disrupts so called
respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous exchange (breathe) which lead to its
death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to immediate death of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two strands from
separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of this action is
still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes. Disruption of
metabolic processes prevents cell growth.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without
adequate disinfection before or after the system. We recommend regularly scheduled maintenance and
replacement of the filter cartridge in order for the product to perform properly. Improper installation and
maintenance may result in property damage due to water leakage.

FCPPx-PS5-AB
Double-layered Sediment Filter
Cartridges with Melt Blown PP Spun
and BACinix™ nanosilver technlology
Aquafilter FCPP20-PS5-AB and FCPP20M10B-PS5-AB for Dual 2-in-1filtration: PP
String with melt blown antibacteria inside core, manufactured by Aquafiltel, uses Sediment
Yarn wall and melt blown antibacterial core to remove particles from water and protect the
water from bacteria.
Outside PP string yarn sediment filters utilize cartridge to provide a large amount of
filtration surface area and greater dirt holding capacity. In water and water-like liquids, dirt
is trapped on the outside surfaces of the filter cartridge, the outside surface is made of
100% food grade polypropylene.
The inside antybacteria melt blown core is made of high quality polypropylene which
conforms to the very strict FDA regulations. During the manufacturing process antibacterial
substance based on silver nanoparticles was added. All the components were added
during the manufacturing process so they are dispersed evenly in the entire cartridge (in
contrast to many competitive products which are only sprayed on the surface).
FCPP20-PS5-AB and FCPP20M10B-PS5-A series cartridges provide high quality depth
filtration.cDue to porous structure remove sediments (sand, silt, rust and suspended
solids).
Utilization of nanosilver-based antimicrobial agent prevents from microbiological growth.
The cartridge becomes impenetrable barrier for waterborne microbes. Bacteria are held
inside the cartridge and cannot get through due to the porous structure of it. FCPP20-PS5AB and FCPP20M10B-PS5-A effectively protects expensive houseware and water
supplying systems. Cartridges are dedicated for cold potable water filtration.
The large surface area of the cartridge greatly increases the life of the filter.
Comparing with other type sediment filter cartridge, it has better durability and longer
service life.
A 2-IN-ONE filter cartridge provides adequate filtration for most situations.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water enters each
stage of filtration, it is supplemented with traces of nanosilver
equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of nanosilver imparts
bacteriostatic agents and restricts the propagation of micro-organisms
inside the filtration system, which in turn enhances shelf life and
protects from future contamination.

Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids. Silver
nanoparticles change their structure (create disulfide bridges between aminoacids).
It disrupts so called respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous
exchange (breathe) which lead to its death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to its leading to immediate death of bacterial
cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two strands
from separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of
this action is still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes. Disruption
of metabolic processes prevents cell growth.

FCPNNxM-AB
Double-layered Sediment Filter
Cartridges with Melt Blown PP Spun
and BACinix™ nanosilver technlology
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCPNNxM-AB is a double-layered filter cartridge. The outer
layer is made of polypropylene and nylon mesh. Depending on a type of the
cartridge FCPNNxM-AB is available in two mesh sizes, i.e. 100 and 150
microns. The second layer is made of polypropylene non-woven fabric
manufactured using melt-blown special technique.
This layer is capable of removing sediments such as sand, rust and silt down
to 5 microns.
The outer part is washable and reusable and creates a first barrier against
sediments. The true depth filtration takes place on the PP spun cartridge,
which is inside. When this filter becomes clogged, simply remove the cartridge,
clean the nylon net and replace with new inner pp melt blown spun
antibacterial core.
How FCPNNxM-AB works

AQUAFILTER FCCEL series cartridges are
manufactured from durable polyester non-woven
fabric. They contain no binders or cellulose and
have been developed specifically for drinking and
bottled water applications.
In order to provide increased surface area and
longer life, FCCEL series cartridges are pleated
around a polypropylene core. The core gives the
cartridges additional strength. The end caps are
immersed in a vinyl plastisol which fuses these
components together acting as both an endcap and
a gasket.
FCCEL series cartridges provide great sediment
removal and dirt holding capacity to extend the time
between cartridge changeouts. Cartridges are
characterized by excellent sediment absorption of
sand, silt, rust and suspended solids from potable
water. In addition, these filter cartridges effectively
protect boilers and pluming systems.
Utilizing 100% synthetic media makes FCCEL
series cartridges washable and reusable. If the
cartridge becomes clogged you can easilly clean it
by direct spray into pleats to dislodge sediment or
let dry and brush off filter cake from surface of the
media. FCCEL series cartridges are bacteria and
chemical resistant.
They are characterized with very low pressure drop.
FCCEL series cartridges are typically used as a first
stage of potable water filtration.

FCCA
GAC Filter Cartridges filled
with coconut shell carbon
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCCA series cartridges have been
very popular carbon cartridges for years. A
combination of NSF approved coconut shell
activated carbon and non-woven fiber provides
efficient removal of contaminants from potable
water. GAC-type cartridges are designed such that
where water flows from bottom to top, ensuring long
contact time and allowing for maximum adsorption
and treatment.
Utilizing a highly efficient longitudinal flow for greater
carbon contact time, FCCA is ideal where a long
contact time allows for high chlorine as well as other
organic contaminant reduction. Using clean, waterwashed NSF approved coconut shell activated
carbon with a large mesh size, this granular range
is primarily a chlorine, taste and odour reduction
cartridge with the advantage of a post-filter pad to
prevent carbon from being washed out and to avoid
blockage if high particulate is present.
According to internal laboratory studies, the
cartridge removes 99% of free chlorine, 85% of
certain pestecides, solvents, aromatic
hydrocarbons, and other organic compounds.
Polypropylene non-woven filter acts as a post-filter,
preventing both carbon particles and sediment from
being washed out.
Also available in FCCA-STO model - three stage
filtration features sediment removal. First layer
removes sediments and mechanical contaminants
down to 10 µm. Second layer with coconut shell
carbon removes free chlorine and organic
contaminants. Third layer of non-woven filter
prevents carbon from being washed out.
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive pricing
- NSF approved Coconut Shell Activated Carbon
- Component FDA CFR Title 21
- 99% removal of free chlorine
- 85% removal of certain pesticides
- Organic compound removal
- Improves taste and odour of water
- Sediment removal (sand, silt, rust, suspended
solids)**
- Equipped with end filter, preventing particulates of
filtration media from being washed out

FCCBKDF
Filter cartridges filled with coconut shell
activated carbon and KDF® media
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCCBKDF are state-of-the-art multimedia
filter cartridges. GAC-type cartridges are designed such
that where water flows from bottom to top ensures a long
contact time, allowing for maximum adsorption and
treatment.
Utilizing a highly efficient longitudinal flow for greater
carbon contact time, FCCBKDF is ideal where a long
contact time allows for high chlorine as well as other
organic reductions.
Cartridges are filled with water-washed coconut shell
activated carbon, KDF®-55 and non-woven polypropylene
layers. Each layer plays an important role in potable water
purification.
Coconut shell activated carbon used in filter cartridges
removes chlorine, solvents and aromatic hydrocarbons
(improves the taste and odor) and compounds, phenol,
benzene, and organic substances from water.
KDF®, utilizing redox reactions, kills or inhibits bacteria
growth, converts chlorine to chlorides and removes iron,
hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals (lead, arsenic, etc.).
KDF® can also help reduce scale formation.
Used in combination with Activated Carbon, KDF® can
significantly extend the life of filter cartridges. Non-woven
polypropylene creates a barrier that prevents filtration
media from being washed out.
FCCBKDF-STO, a two-stage filter cartridge made of
polypropylene, carbon layers and KDF® media layers, is
also available. The first layer (cleansing) is made of nonwoven polypropylene, which removes contaminants from
water and mechanical solids (not smaller than 10
microns). The second layer is made of coconut shell
activated, KDF® media and non-woven polypropylene.
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive Pricing
- Leaves beneficial minerals (calcium, magnesium,
sodium, potasium, etc.) intact, producing a tastier
mineral water
- Contains activated carbon and KDF® media
- Removes a wide range of contaminants including
heavy metals (arsenic cadmium, lead, mercury)
- Removes iron compounds and hydrogen sulphide
- Removes pesticides
- Removes up to 99% of free chlorine from water
- Removes organic substances
- Removes sediment impurities (rust, sand, silt,
suspended solids)*
- Improves taste and odor
- These filter cartridges are equipped with end filter,
which prevents all deposited media from being washed
out
- KDF® media inhibits bacteria growth in treated water uses no silver
- Made in the EU with High Quality material.

FCPS5-BL-AB
Hybrid Filter Cartridge Antimicrobial
PP Spun with Carbon Block Cartridge Inside
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCPS5-BL-AB series are innovative hybrid filter cartridges.
They combine the features of both PP spun cartridge and carbon block.
The cartridge consists of two layers. The outer layer is made of PP spun
cartridge. The core is made of the carbon block. PP spun is made of high
quality polypropylene which conforms to the very strict FDA regulations.
During the manufacturing process antibacterial substance based on silver
nanoparticles was added. In order to distinguish this premium product from
similar available on the market, a special manufacture process was apply.
Pressure drop, bar (psi)
All the components were added during the special manufacturing process so
they are dispersed evenly in the entire cartridge (in contrast to many
competitive products which are only sprayed on the surface).
The carbon block core is made of a mixture of high quality bituminous and
coconut shell activated carbons. Both of them are FDA compliant. Additionally
a special heavy metal removal media was added.
It effectively removes lead, copper, mercury and strontium from water. In case
of the carbon block an antimicrobial agent (nanosilver based) was utilized as
well so the entire hybrid cartridge has antimicrobial properties.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water enters
each stage of filtration, it is supplemented with traces of
nanosilver equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of
nanosilver imparts bacteriostatic agents and restricts the
propagation of micro-organisms inside the filtration system,
which in turn enhances shelf life and protects from future
contamination.
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens in
several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids.
Silver nanoparticles change their structure (create disulfide bridges between
aminoacids). It disrupts so called respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability
to gaseous exchange (breathe) which lead to its death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to its leading to immediate death
of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two
strands from separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the
detail mechanism of this action is still not well known and requires further
studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes.
Disruption of metabolic processes prevents cell growth.

The cartridge can also become impenetrable barrier for waterborne microbes.
Bacteria are hold inside the cartridge and cannot get through due to the
porous structure of it. Nanosilver-based active agent prevents from
microbiological growth. FCPS5-BL-AB effectively protects drinking water
supplying systems. Cartridges are dedicated for cold potable water filtration.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water
enters each stage of filtration, it is supplemented with
traces of nanosilver equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This
™ trace quantity of nanosilver imparts bacteriostatic
agents and restricts the propagation of microorganisms inside the filtration system, which in turn
enhances shelf life and protects from future
contamination.
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens
in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of
aminoacids. Silver nanoparticles change their structure (create
disulfide bridges between aminoacids). It disrupts so called
respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous exchange
(breathe) which lead to its death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to its leading to
immediate death of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA.
It prevents two strands from separation and thus stops DNA
replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of this action is
still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various
ensymes. Disruption of metabolic processes prevents cell growth.

General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCCBL-G-AB (GOLD) series is state of the art carbon
block. These are an upgraded version of well known FCCBL-S series
carbon block. They have all of the advantages of SILVER SERIES
Carbon Blocks and none of their drawbacks.
Cartridges are made of a mixture of high quality bituminoous and
coconut shell activated carbons, which comply to the strict FDA
standards. Moreover a special heavy metal removal media was utilized.
It effectively removes lead, copper, mercury, strontium.
Additionally antimicrobial (nanosilver based) active agent was utilized.
This substance was added during the maufacturing process so it is
dispersed evenly in the entire cartridge (in contrast to the silver
impregnated activated carbon) preventing it from microbiological growth.

FCCST2
Water softening
& iron removing filter cartridge
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCCST2 series cartridges are an effective and efficient
solution for point-of-use applications. Their undeniable benefit is ease of
installation and changeout. Cartridges include pre- and post-filters,
preventing media particles from being washed out.
Made in EU
Cartridges are available in various capacities to meet Customer
demands. FCCST2 was designed to allow optimal contact between
water and resin, therefore ensuring maximum performance (ion
exchange).
How FCCST2 works
FCCST2 utilizes FDA-grade, sodium, based, strongly acidic ionexchange resin which reduces calcium and magnesium ions
content and lowers the concentration of iron in water. Calcium and
magnesium are often called "hardness minerals". Large amounts of
these ions in water are responsible for the formation of the scale
deposits, higher detergent consumption and stains on glassware. In
extreme cases large amounts of calcium and magnesium can lead to
glass etching.

Hard water damages home appliances such as: tea kettles, dishwashers
and washing machines, and increases their energy consumption. Hard
water leaves an invisible film on skin, which blocks pores. This in turns
causes chapping, itching and dryness. Iron imparts a dissagreeable
taste to the water. It can ruin the taste of tea, coffee and beverages. Iron
compounds create yellow to dark-brown stains on equipment. Iron salts
irritate skin.

Water, after passing through FCCST2, is softened and contains almost
no calcium & magnesium, as well as iron. It enables people to use lesser
quantities of soap, shampoo, and skin care products. Moreover,
detergent consumption is reduced. AQUAFILTER FCCST2 can be used
in every POU application where soft water containing no iron is required.

FCCST
Water softening filter cartridge
General Description:
FCCST utilizes FDA-grade, sodium, based, strongly
acidic ion-exchange resin which reduces calcium and
magnesium ion content in water. Calcium and
magnesium are often called "hardness minerals". Large
amounts of these ions in water are responsible for the
formation of scale deposits, higher detergent
consumption and stains on glassware. In extreme
cases large amounts of calcium and magnesium can
lead to glass etching.
Hard water damages home appliances such as: tea
kettles, dishwashers and washing machines, and
increases their energy consumption. Hard water leaves
an invisible film on skin, which blocks pores. This in
turns causes chapping, itching and dryness. Softened
water contains almost no calcium & magnesium. It
enables people to use lesser quantities of soap,
shampoo, and skin care products. Moreover, detergent
consumption is reduced. AQUAFILTER FCCST can be
used in every POU application where soft water is
required.
Also available in FCCST-STO model - two stage
filtration features sediment and ion exchange layers.
The first layer removes sediments and mechanical
contaminants up to 10 µm. The second layer with ion
exchange media acts as water softener.
AQUAFILTER FCCST series cartridges are an
effective and efficient solution for POE and POU
applications.
Their undeniable benefit is ease of installation and
changeout. Cartridges include pre- and post-filters,
preventing media particles from being washed out.
Cartridges are available in various capacities to meet
Customer demands. FCCST was designed to allow
optimal contact between water and resin therefore
ensuring maximum performance (ion exchange).

FCCFE
Iron removal filter cartridge
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCCFE series cartridges are an
effective and efficient solution for point-of-use and
point-of-entry applications.
Their undeniable benefit is ease of installation and
changeout. Cartridges include pre- and post-filters
preventing media particles from being washed out.
Cartridges, are available in various capacities to meet
the Customers demands. FCCFE was designed to
allow optimal contact between water and the resin
therefore ensuring maximum performance (iron and
manganese removal).
FCCFE utilizes NSF approved media which
increase pH and reduce the concentration of iron
and manganese in water.
Iron in a concentration as low as 0,3 mg/l can become
a source of yellow to dark-brown stains often found in
sinks, toilets and other plumbing fixtures. If iron is
present in detectable amounts it can ruin the taste of
tea, coffee and beverages.
Iron salts may irritate skin. Manganese is much more
annoying than iron. Even low concentrations of this
element ( > 0,05 mg/l) create dark-brown or black
stains on everything with which it comes in contact.
Both manganese and iron form deposits inside piping
systems, which (after a while) may severely reduce
flow.
As water is passed through the filter, soluble iron and
manganese are pulled from solution and later react to
form insoluble iron and manganese. Insoluble iron and
manganese will build up in the FCCFE filter and must
be removed by backwashing. AQUAFILTER FCCFE
can be used in both POE and POU applications.
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive pricing
- Lowers iron & manganese content
- NSF approved Birm and Corosex
- Filter improves flavor and reduces the metallic
taste caused by iron
- Prevents sink stains
- Corrects pH level
- Compatible with most under-sink and RO systems
- Removes sediments (sand, silt, rust, suspended
solids) 10 µm*
- Equipped with end filter preventing particulates of
filtration media from being washed out
- Made in the EU with High Quality materials

FCPRA-C
Filter cartridges filled
with activated coconut shell carbon
and polyphosphate
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FCPRA-C are multimedia filter cartridges.
Cartridges were designed such that water flows from bottom to
top ensuring a long contact time, allowing for maximum
adsorption and treatment.
Utilizing a highly efficient longitudinal flow for greater contact
time, FCPRA-C is ideal where a long contact time allows for
high chlorine as well as other impurity reduction.
How FCPRA-C works
Cartridges are filled with water-washed coconut shell activated
carbon and food grade polyphosphate. Such a combination
provides an efficient removal of contaminants from potable
water. Each layer plays an important role in potable water
purification.
GAC
(stage 2)
clean

Cl2
PHENOL
Polyphosphate prevents scale by reacting with dissolved
hardness minerals (e.g. calcium carbonate and calcium
bicarbonate) and transforming them into harmless, microscopic
crystals of calcium orthophosphate. These crystals stay
suspended in water and will not create scale build-up in
heating elements, pipes, water heaters, boilers, etc.
FCPRA-C
BENZEN

PHENOL

BENZENE
Cl2
Moreover polyphosphate helps to deal with iron and all the
problems which it causes. Polyphosphates do not remove iron
from water. Rather they stabilize and disperse the iron so that
the water remains clear and does not produce iron stains. The
FCPRA-C filter cartridges require very little maintenance, no
backwashing and no salt. Coconut shell activated carbon used
in filter cartridges removes chlorine from water, solvents and
aromatic hydrocarbons (improves the taste and odor) and
compounds, phenol, benzene, and organic substances.
FCPRA-C is equipped with a post-filter pad to prevent carbon
from being washed out and to avoid blockage if high
particulate is present.

AIPRO-CL-AB series
In-line Sediment Removal
Filter Cartridge with Antimicrobial Agent
General Description:
AQUAFILTER AIPRO-CL-AB and AIPRO-1M-CL-AB are state-ofthe-art PP spun cartridges. They were designed to fit our
transparent 2" and 2,5" in-line housings.
Made in EU
The cartridges were made of high quality polypropylene which
conforms to the very strict FDA regulations. During the
manufacturing process antibacterial substance based on silver
nanoparticles was added. In order to distinguish this premium
product from similar available on the market, a special technology
was added to the manufacturing process.
AIPRO-1M-CL-AB
AIPRO-CL-AB
12” 285 mm)
The effectively remove sand, silt, rust and suspended solids from
filtered water. The cartridge can also become impenetrable barrier
for waterborne microbes. Bacteria are held inside the cartridge and
cannot get through due to the porous structure of the filter.
Nanosilver-based active agent prevents from microbiological
growth. AIPRO-CL-AB and AIPRO-1M-CL-AB effectively protects
expensive houseware and water supplying systems. Cartridges are
dedicated for cold potable water filtration.
Each cartridge is pressure tested.
AIPRO-1M-CL-AB
Features:
Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As
water enters each stage of filtration, it is
supplemented with traces of nanosilver equivalent
to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of nanosilver
imparts bacteriostatic agents and restricts the
propagation of micro-organisms inside the filtration
system, which in turn enhances shelf life and
protects from future contamination.
Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks
pathogens in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of
aminoacids. Silver nanoparticles change their structure (create
disulfide bridges between aminoacids). It disrupts so called
respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability to gaseous
exchange (breathe) which lead to its death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to its leading to
immediate death of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA.
It prevents two strands from separation and thus stops DNA
replication. Unfortunatelly the detail mechanism of this action is
still not well known and requires further studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with
various ensymes. Disruption of metabolic processes prevents
cell growth.

AICRO-L4 series
In-line filter cartridge
with coconut shell activated carbon
®
and KDF media
General Description:
AQUAFILTER AICRO-L4 are state-of-the-art
multimedia 2,5" in-line cartridges. These cartridges are
designed in a way to ensure a long contact time,
allowing maximum adsorption and treatment. Utilizing a
highly efficient longitudinal flow for greater carbon
contact time, AICRO-L4 is ideal for chlorine and other
organic compounds reduction. Sealed in-line cartridges
are filled with water-washed coconut shell activated
carbon, KDF-55® and non-vowen polypropylene layers.
Each layer plays an important role in potable water
purification. Coconut shell activated carbon used in
filter cartridges removes chlorine from water, solvents
and aromatic hydrocarbons (improves the taste and
odor) and compounds, phenol, benzene, and organic
substances. KDF® utilizing redox reactions kills or
inhibits bacteria growth, converts chlorine to chlorides
and removes iron, hydrogen sulfide and heavy metals
(lead, arsenic, etc.). KDF® can also help reduce scale
formation. Used in combination with Activated Carbon,
KDF® can significantly extend the life of filter cartridges.
Non-woven polypropylene removes sediment impurities
from water, such as: sand, silt, rust, suspension
solids. Additionally, it creates a barrier that prevents
filtration media from being washed out.

Nanosilver is so effective because it simultaneously attacks pathogens
in several routes:
1. Nanosilver attacks bacteria cell walls – they are composed of aminoacids.
Silver nanoparticles change their structure (create disulfide bridges between
aminoacids). It disrupts so called respiration chain. Bacteria losses its ability
to gaseous exchange (breathe) which lead to its death.
2. Nanosilver can penetrate cell wall and lead to its leading to immediate death
of bacterial cell.
3. Nanosilver enters inside the bacteria and binds with its DNA. It prevents two
strands from separation and thus stops DNA replication. Unfortunatelly the
detail mechanism of this action is still not well known and requires further
studies.
4. Nanosilver after passing to the inside of the cell binds with various ensymes.
Disruption of metabolic processes prevents cell growth.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water enters each stage of
filtration, it is supplemented with traces of nanosilver equivalent to 15-20 ppb.
This trace quantity of nanosilver imparts bacteriostatic agents and restricts the
propagation of micro-organisms inside the filtration system, which in turn
enhances shelf life and protects from future contamination.

AIPRO-3-L
In-line water softening
and iron removal filter cartridge
Application:
- under sink
- water coolers
- other application
Made in EU
General Description:
Features:
AQUAFILTER AIPRO-3-L in-line cartridge fits most 1/4” water line
and requires no additional tools for installation.
- High quality
- Competitive pricing
- High capacity FDA approved ion-exchange resin
NSF approved Birm media
- No stains on a glassware
- Prevents sink stains
- Compatible with most under-sink and RO systems
- Excellent choice for lime scale removal and lime scale problems.
- Detergent consumption reduced by 30%
- Less energy consumption
- Equipped with end filter preventing particulates of
filtration media from being washed out
- Lowers iron & manganese content
filter improves the flavor and reduces the metallic
taste caused by iron
- Made in the EU with High Quality materials
Once the filter is installed in place, there are no extra steps required.
Cartridges include pre- and post-filters preventing media particles from
being washed out. AQUAFILTER AIPRO-3-L was designed to allow
optimal contact between water and the media therefore ensuring
maximum performance. AIPRO-3-L utilizes a mixture of FDA-grade
sodium based strongly acidic ion-exchange resin and NSF
approved Birm media.
Iox exchange resin reduces calcium and magnesium content in water
and therefore softens it. This way customers can forget about stains
on a glassware and limescale on a heating elements of home
appliances. Moreover detergent and energy consumption will be
reduced. Birm reduces concentration of iron and manganese by
pulling it out of the solution thus protecting expensive equipment (such
as cofee makers, refrigerators, etc.).
It eliminates yellow, brown and black stains on kitchenware and
plumbing fixtures. Reduction of calcium, magnesium, iron and
manganese greatly improves an overall quality of water and it
diminishes a risk of flow reduction. AQUAFILTER AIPRO-3-L can be
used on bottleless water coolers, reverse osmosis systems, coffee
machines, ice makers, refrigerators and every POU application where
soft water without iron and manganese is required.

AISTRO series
In-line water softening
filter cartridge
General Description:
AQUAFILTER AISTRO was designed to allow optimal contact
between water and the resin therefore ensuring maximum
performance (ion exchange).
AISTRO utilizes FDA-grade sodium-based strongly acidic ionexchange resin which reduces calcium and magnesium ion
content in water. Calcium and magnesium are often called
"hardness minerals". Large amounts of these ions in water are
responsible for the formation of scale deposits, higher
detergent consumption and stains on glassware.
In extreme situations, large amounts of calcium and
magnesium can lead to glass etching. Hard water leaves an
invisible film on skin, which blocks pores. This in turn causes
chapping, itching and dryness. Softened water contains almost
no calcium & magnesium.It enables people to use lesser
quantities of soap, shampoo, and skin care products. Moreover
detergent consumption is reduced.
AQUAFILTER AISTRO can be used on bottleless water
coolers, reverse osmosis systems, coffee machines, ice
makers, refrigerators and every POU application where soft
water is required. Keep in mind when water is extremely hard,
filter will be exhausted very quickly, therefore a conventional
AQUAFILTER water softener should be used.
AQUAFILTER AISTRO in-line cartridge fits most 1/4” water
lines and requires no additional tools for installation. Once the
filter is installed in place, there are no extra steps required.
Just turn on the water to get it softened. Cartridges include
pre- and post-filters preventing media particles from being
washed out.
Each cartridge is pressure tested.
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive pricing
- High capacity FDA Compliant ion-exchange resin
- No stains on glassware

AISTRO-L-CL utilizes FDA-grade sodium based strongly acidic
ion-exchange resin which reduces calcium and magnesium ions
content in water. Calcium and magnesium are often called
"hardness minerals". Large amount of these ions in water are
responsible for a formation of the scale deposits, higher detergent
consumption and stains on a glassware. In extreme situations large
amount of calcium and magnesium can lead to glass etching. Hard
water leaves an invisible film on a skin, which blocks pores.
This in turns causes chapping, itching and dryness. Softened water
contains almost no calcium & magnesium.It enables people to use
lesser quantities of soap, shampoo, and skin care products.
Moreover detergent consumption is reduced.
AQUAFILTER AISTRO-L-CL can be used on bottleless water
coolers, reverse osmosis systems, coffee machines, ice makers,
refrigerators and every POU application where soft water is
required. Keep in mind when water is extremely hard, filter will be
exhausted very quickly, therefore a conventional AQUAFILTER
water softener should be used.

AICRO-SOF series
In-line filter cartridge scale elimination,
contains coconut shell activated
carbon and polyphosphate
General Description:
The complete treatment program for commercial ice makers, coffee
brewers, beverage machines and other water-using equipment
such as humidifiers, steamers and residential refrigerator ice
makers.
Made in EU
Eliminate lime scale formation
Remove silt, sediment and other suspended matter
Remove chlorine and other objectionable tastes and odors
Complete treatment for up to six months.
AICRO-SOF cartridges are designed and manufactured to
eliminate or control the three primary water-related problems: lime
scale, silt and sediment, and objectionable tastes and odors
encountered in ice makers, coffee machine and other equipment.
These problems all reduce the designed capacities of this
equipment, and they cause operation and service costs to
increase.
All water supplies contain hardness and alkalinity minerals. Without
proper treatment, these minerals will cause lime scale formation in
ice makers, coffee makers, humidifiers, etc., equipment that allows
for the freezing or heating of the water.
Solution: AICRO- SOF
Listed, food-grade slowly soluble polyphosphate, which dissolves
slowly into the water and stabilizes the hardness minerals, thereby
preventing scale formation.
SILT AND SEDIMENT:
When a water supply contains suspended matter, this can be
troublesome in all types of equipment. The suspended particles will
plug solenoid valves, distribution lines, small orifices.
OBJECTIONABLE TASTE AND ODOR: Compounds such as
chlorine and hydrogen sulfide cause bad tastes and odors. In
addition, chlorine can be corrosive and it can also inhibit or reduce
the carbonation of water in beverage machines.
AICRO-SOF contains the best available activated carbon for
absorbing these contaminants. It will remove these objectionable
tastes and odors, providing quality water or ice.

Nanosilver is a known bacteriostatic agent. As water enters each
stage of filtration, it is supplemented with traces of nanosilver
equivalent to 15-20 ppb. This trace quantity of nanosilver imparts
bacteriostatic agents and restricts the propagation of microorganisms inside the filtration system, which in turn enhances shelf
life and protects from future contamination.

AIFIR2000
2" specialty in-line filter cartridge
with "Negative Ion" media
General Description:
AIFIR2000 is made of clear poly(ethylene terephtalate)
(PET). Cartridge contains negative ion ceramic media
which releases 2000 ni/cc (negative ions per cubic
centimeter). The term "Negative Ions" refers to
negatively charged atoms, particles or complex
particles which have a higher number of electrons than
normal.
Studies indicate their positive effects on human body.
"Negative ions" are relaxing, calming and may provide
a soothing effect during the course of illness.
Ionized water can be easily absorbed by the human
body. It positively affects many of body’s physiological
processes, such as: balancing pH level of body fluids,
boosting body’s cleansing abilities and scavenging free
radicals that may contribute to acceleration of aging
processes and cancer.
Negative ions in contact with water reduce water
clusters which in turn make water more hydrating. The
PET housing acts as a protective shield which prevents
ions from getting out of the cartridge, so all the negative
ions are captured by water clusters.
Therefore AQUAFILTER AIFIR2000 is best as a post
RO cartridge.
AQUAFILTER AIFIR2000 in-line cartridge fits most 1/4”
water line and requires no additional tools for
installation.
Each cartridge is pressure tested.
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive pricing
- Component FDA CFR Title 21 Compliant
- Beneficial influence on human biochemical processes
- Provides calming effect
- Acts as bactericide
- Keeps drinking water fresher, for longer periods of
time
- Improves taste of water
- Radical scavenger
- Made in the EU with High Quality materials
Application:
- post RO
- under sink
- water coolers
- and other application

2" specialty in-line filter cartridge
with "Negative Ion" media
The Benefits of “Negative Ions” have been know for many decades among people of East Asia and lately also among
customers in the United States. Here are several important benefits:
-positive influence on multiple biochemical processes in human body
-calming effect
-sleep stimulation
-pain relief
-antibacterial effect
-better tasting water
-extended water freshness

Cartridge casing properties
Emission of natural media contained in
AIFIR2000 filter cartridges causes the
creation of negatively charges particles
commonly called "Negative Ions". In
addition, PET cartridge casing acts as a
shield and holds emitted negative ions
inside of the cartridge thus intensifying
cumulative effect on filtered water.

Candle typ Cartridges
General Description:
We can salso supply our customers with candle type
cartridges. There are several types of cartridges:
FCPS - cartridges made of pure polypropylene using meltblown technique. Cartridges characterize with excellent
sediment absorption of sand, silt, rust and suspended
solids from potable water. These cartridges are an ideal
true depth filters and can be used for filtration of cold
potable water.
FCCBL - carbon block made of high quality activated
carbon. Iimproves taste and smell of filtered water by
removing 99% of free chlorine, 85% of certain pestecides
and other organic compounds. The candle-type cartridges
were designed for filtration of cold potable water.
FCPSKDF - these cartridges combine the action of three
different layers. Each layer plays an important role in
potable water purification. Non-woven polypropylene
removes sediment impurities from water, such as: sand,
silt, rust, suspension solids. KDF® utilizing redox reactions
kills or inhibits bacteria growth, converts chlorine to
chlorides and removes iron, hydrogen sulfide and heavy
metals (lead, arsenic, etc.). Cartridges are also filled with
water-washed activated carbon, which removes chlorine
from water, solvents and aromatic hydrocarbons (improves
the taste and odor) and compounds, phenol, benzene, and
organic substances. Used in combination with KDF®,
activated carbon can significantly extend the life of filter
cartridges.
FCCER - washable and reusable candle type cartridge
made of 100% ceramal. Cartridge provides great
sediment removal and dirt holding capacity to extend the
time between cartridge changeouts. Cartridge
characterizes with excellent absorption of mechanical
contaminants (sand, silt, rust and suspended solids), most
bacteria, cysts and some viruses from potable water not
larger than 0,3 µm.
Cartridges are available in two versions:
- CN (without thread),
- CT (with thread).
Features:
- High quality
- Competitive Pricing
- Quick delivery

RO membranes
General Description:
AQUAFILTER TFCxF Series Original Aquafilter®
RO membranes. RO membranes consists of
many thin layers of porous, semi-permeable film
wound around a central core.
TFCxF series membranes are compatible with
most RO systems available on the market.
Membranes are available in various capacities:
50GPD, 75GPD 100GPD & 125GPD to meet
customers demands. They effectively remove
96%-99% of suspended particles, most bacteria
and viruses, VOC's (not smaller than 0.0001 µm)
and even ions.
All filtered impurities are flushed to drain. TFCxF
series membranes improve overall quality of
water. Keep in mind that the performance of the
RO membranes depends on water temperature
and applied pressure.
Low temperature of influent water will affect
(lower) membrane performance. Pressure has a
similar effect. In such cases, booster pump
AFXPOMP is required.

FUV-P4W_K
UV lamp
General Description:
AQUAFILTER FUV-P4W lamp is an effective way to
deal with various microorganisms which can be
found in water. Radiation emitted by this lamp
effectively kills microorganisms.
The best performance (germicidal effects) is
obtained at approx. 254 nm wavelength and with the
intensity ranging from 3000 do 20000 mW*sec/cm2.
The primary mechanism by which UV inactivates
microorganisms is the creation of pyrimidine dimers
on the same DNA or RNA strand.
Once the dimmers are formed the microorganisms
areunable to reproduce. Another mechanism is a
disruption of cell wall and therefore destruction of an
entire microorganism.
The effectiveness of disinfection depends on the
percent of UV radiation that might be absorbed by
the a cell of microorganism. The degree of
microorganism destruction or inactivation depends
on various factors: time of exposure to the UV light,
intensity, type of microorganism and water turbidity.
One of the main advantages of UV light is that it
does not change natural physicochemical features
of water. Undercounter systems, which are
equipped with a UV lamp, filters out 100% of water
input (100% of treated water - no recoil).
In addition, provide zero rejection factor - almost
100% of inlet water undergoes purification process
and is suitable for consumption. FUV-P4W utilizes
Phillips filament (4W). It is designed to work with
undercounter water filtration systems and reverse
osmosis systems.
Features:
- 99.9% effectiveness in water disinfection
- Approximately 12 months of UV lamp filament
vitality
- Filtration without altering the physico-chemical
water composition
- Longevity of UV light bulb is to 8000 working hours
(approx. 1 year)
- No change to chemical and physical composition
of water

TLCHF
UF membrane
TLCHF-FP
General Description:
Compatible with most under-counter systems available on
the market. Due to the small pore size (0,02 micron) in
combination with mambrane unique structure of UF
membrane which decreases from the outside to the inside,
the membrane is capable of removing various
contaminants such as: sand, silt, rust and other suspended
impurities, most bacteria, and some viruses.
Large sediment particles are blocked near the capillary
surface (surface filtration) and smaller ones flow inside
until they are captured by smaller pores (depth filtration).
Unlike RO membranes, UF membranes are characterized
by zero rejection ratio which in turn leads to quicker and
more efficient delivery of clean water. Moreover hollow
fiber UF membranes leave beneficial minerals intact.
TLCHF is designed for cold potable water filtration.
TLCHF-2T
AQUAFILTER TLCHF - Ultra filtration membrane. Fits
most 1/4” water lines and requires no additional tools for
installation.

NOTE:
Treatment Technique — An enforceable procedure or level of technical per­formance which public water systems must follow to ensure control of a
contaminant.
Lead and copper are regulated in a Treatment Technique which requires systems to take tap water samples at sites with lead pipes or copper pipes
that have lead solder and/or are served by lead service lines. The action level, which triggers water systems into taking treatment steps, if exceeded
in more than 10% of samples, for copper is 1,3 mg/L and for lead is 0,015 mg/L.
Fecal coliforms and E. coli are bacteria whose presence indicates that the water may be contaminated with human/animal wastes. Microbes in these
wastes can cause diarrhea, cramps, nausea, headaches or other symptoms.

Glossary Of Filtration Terminology
This section presents definitions for some key words and phrases that are generally associated with filtration processes.
Absorption: The process of substance actually penetrating into the structure of another
substance. This is different from adsorption in which one substance adheres to the surface
of another.
Abrasion Resistance: Ability of a fiber or fabric to withstand surface wear.
Absolute: A degree of filtration that guarantees 100% removal of suspended solids over a
specified size found in the filtrate.
Absolute Pressure: The pressure above an absolute vacuum. One atmosphere (14.70 psi)
greater than gauge pressure. Symbolized as psia when the pressure is expressed in psi
units.
Absolute Rating: Particle size in micrometers removed at a given efficiency under a
manufacturer's defined test condition. Also an arbitrary term assigned by a manufacturer.
Implied is 100%, but more often defined as 98.67%, 99%, 99.9% and 99.99%, according to
the manufacturer. Aquafilter defines absolute as 99.98% removal (Beta = 5000) as
determined by particle counting methods.
Acid: A compound resulting in a pH less than 7 when in aqueous solution, a molecule that
can give up a proton to a base, accept an unshared pair of electrons from a base or react
with a base to form a salt, a substance that has more free hydrogen ions, H+, than hydroxyl
ions, OH-.
Acidity: Having the properties of an acid; a pH less than 7.
Acidic: The condition of water or soil which contains a sufficient amount of acid substances
to lower the pH below 7.0.
Activated Alumina: Activated Alumina is a form of aluminum oxide used as a desiccant
(dryer) for gases. It is also used as a carrier for potassium pernanganate when the latter is
used as a chemisorber.
Activated Carbon: A water treatment medium found in block, granulated, or powdered form
which is produced by heating carbonaceous substances, bituminous coal or cellulose-based
substances such as wood or coconut shell, to 700°C or less in the absence of air to form a
carbonized char and then activating (oxidizing) at 800°C to 1000°C with oxidizing gases
such as steam and carbon dioxide (oxygen is never used as the oxidizing gas because its
reaction with the carbon surface is too rapid and violent) to form pores, thus creating a
highly porous adsorbent material. Activated carbon is commonly used for dechlorination and
for reducing trace and soluble materials such as organic chemicals and radon from water.
Activated Carbon Block Filter: Activated carbon block is a blend of fine activated carbon
(e.g. 80 x 325 mesh activated carbon), water and a suitable binder (such as polyethylene or
a similar material) that is mixed and molded and hardened or extruded to a cartridge filter of
any size and shape. Sometimes specialized media are added along with activated carbon to
provide customized performances for specific contaminants.
Adhesive: An Adhesive is a material used to coat filter fibers in order to increase the
retentivity of dust particles by the fibers.
Adsorbent: An Adsorbent is an adsorber. That upon which adsorption takes place. It is the
material to which a gas molecule is attached and retained.
Adsorption: The physical process occurring when liquids, gases, or suspended matter
adhere to the surfaces of or in the pores of an adsorbent medium. Adsorption is a physical
process, which occurs without chemical reaction.
Advanced water treatment:The level of water treatment that requires an 85-percent
reduction in pollutant concentration, also known as tertiary treatment.
Aerobic Bacteria: Organisms which require oxygen to live.
Aggressive water: Water that is soft and acidic and can corrode plumbing, pipes and
appliances.
Algae: Algae is a very diverse group of photosynthetic plants, ranging from microscopic
single- cell forms to multi-cellular, very large forms such as seaweed. All of them contain
chlorophyll and hence most are green, but some of them may be different colors due to the
presence of other, overshadowing pigments.
Alkaline: The condition of water or soil which contains a sufficient amount of alkali
substances to raise the pH above 7.0.
Alkalinity: The capacity of water to neutralize acids, a property imparted by the water's
content of carbonates, bicarbonates, hydroxides and occasionally borates, silicates and
phosphates. It is expressed in milligrams per liter of equivalent calcium carbonate.
Alkalizer: an agent that counteracts or neutralizes acidity
Ammonia: An inorganic form of nitrogen, is contained in fertilizers, septic system effluent,
and animal wastes. It is also a product of bacterial decomposition of organic matter.
Ammonia NH3-N (NH3-N) becomes a concern if high levels of the un-ionized form are
present. In this form NH3-N can be toxic to aquatic organisms. The presence of un-ionized
ammonia is a function of the NH3-N concentration, pH, and temperature. Conversion of
NH3-N to nitrite nitrogen by nitrification requires large quantities of oxygen which can kill
aquatic organisms due to the lowered dissolved oxygen concentrations in water. NH3-N
concentrations are reported in mg/L NH3-N.
Ambient: Refers to "common" environmental conditions in which experiment is conducted.
For example: 14.7 psia and 20º to 25ºC (room temperature).

capable of growing without the presence of oxygen.
Anisotropic (ASYMMETRIC) MEMBRANE: A membrane in which the pore size and
structure are not the same from one side of the membrane to the other. Such membranes
are usually considered "directional" because of the difference in flow characteristics
depending on which side of the membrane faces the feed stream.
Anion: An ion with a negative charge. An anion such as chloride (CL), nitrate (N03)
bicarbonate (HC03), or sulfate (S04) may result from the dissociation of salt, acid or alkali.
Anion Exchange: An ion exchange process in which anions in solutions are exchanged for
other anions from an ion exchange resin. See also ion exchange.
Aqueous: Similar to or resembling water. In reference to solution made in water.
Aseptic: Refers to an operation performed in a sterile environment designed to prevent
contamination through introduction of bacteria.
Automatic Water Softener (Or Automatic Filter): A water softener (or filter) that is
equipped with a clock timer, which automatically initiates the backwash and or regeneration
process at certain preset intervals of time. All operations, including bypass of treated or
untreated water (depending upon design) backwashing, brining, rinsing and returning the
unit to service are performed automatically.
Backpressure: A backward surge of pressure from downstream to upstream of the filter.
Can be the result of closing a valve or air entrapped in a liquid system.
Backwash: The up flow or counter current flow of water through a filter medium or ion
exchange medium for the purpose of thoroughly expanding the media bed to remove foreign
particulate matter accumulated during the service cycle and to flush it to the drain.
Bacteria: Single-celled organism (singular form=bacterium) which lacks well-defined
nuclear membranes and other specialized functional cell parts and reproduces by cell
division or spores. Bacteria may be free-living organisms or parasites. Bacteria (along with
fungi) are decomposers that breakdown the wastes and bodies of dead organisms, making
their components available for reuse. Bacteria cells range from about 1-10 microns in length
and from 0.2 to 1 micron in width. They exist almost everywhere on earth. Despite their
small size, the total weight of all bacteria in the world likely exceeds that of all other
organisms combined. Some bacteria are helpful to man, others harmful.
Bacteriostatic Media: Inhibits the growth of bacteria within the media bed.
Bar: A unit of pressure. One bar = 14.5 psi.
Beta Ratio: The ratio of the number of particles of a given size and larger upstream
of a filter to the number of particles of the same size and larger downstream.

twisted around a filament (core) yarn, adding yarn strength and stability.
Crossflow (Tangential Flow) Filtration: A filtration system in which the feed stream flows
across the filter media and exits as a retentate stream. The retentate stream is recycled to
merge into the feed stream, while a portion of it passes through the filter media, resulting
in concentration of the feed stream (referred to as concentrate).
Cross-flow membrane filtration: Cross-flow membrane filtration describes a range of
molecular-level separations in the micron and sub-micron scale where either a solvent is
separated from solutes or different solutes are separated from each other. Nominal
membrane porosity is indirectly proportionate to operating pressure; the "tighter" the
membrane, the higher the process operating pressure requirement. This is due to
differences in the transport mechanisms involved whereby diffusion plays the key role in
separations occurring in the reverse osmosis range while size exclusion is the primary
separation mechanism for ultrafiltration.

exits overhead with the majority of the gas stream.
Cyanobacteria: (blue-green algae) A division of bacteria that obtain their energy through
photosynthesis. They are often referred to as blue-green algae, although they are in fact
bacteria, not algae. The description is primarily used to reflect their appearance and
ecological role rather than their evolutionary lineage.

perpendicular to and through the filter medium to emerge as product or filtrate.
Delta () P:See "Differential Pressure".
Deionization: The removal of all ionized minerals and salts (both organic and inorganic)

dirt holding capacities than surface media (pleated).
Desalination: The removal of dissolved inorganic solids (salts) from a solution such as
water to produce a liquid which is free of dissolved salts. Desalination is typically
accomplished by distillation, reverse osmosis or electrodialysis.
Differential Pressure – Delta (Δ) P: The difference in pressure at two points in a water
system. Differences may be due to variations in elevation or to friction losses, or to
pressure drops caused by resistance to water flow through pipes, softeners, filters or other
devices. The change in pressure or the pressure drop across a component or device
located within the air stream; the difference between static pressure measured at the inlet
and outlet of a component device.
Differential Pressure/Pressure Drop: Difference in pressure between two points in a
system. In filters, this is usually measured between the inlet and outlet of the filter housing
(is a determining factor of filter service life).
Dissolved oxygen: The concentration of molecular oxygen (O2) dissolved in water,
usually expressed in milligrams per liter (mg/L), parts per million, or percent of saturation.
The DO level represents one of the most important measurements of water quality and is
a critical indicator of a water body's ability to support healthy ecosystems. Levels above 5
mg/L are considered optimal, and most fish cannot survive for prolonged periods at levels
below 3 mg/L. Microbial communities in water use oxygen to breakdown organic materials,
such as manure, sewage and decomposing algae. Low levels of dissolved oxygen can be
a sign that too much organic material is in a water body.
Di Water: Deionized water; water processed through an ion exchange process by
passing through both cation and anion exchange resin beds, or a mixed resin bed to
remove both positive and negative ions. The purity of water is measured by its electric

hardness was originally applied to waters that were hard to wash in, referring to the soap
wasting properties of hard water. Hardness prevents soap from lathering by causing the
development of an insoluble curdy precipitate in the water; hardness typically causes the

moisture and returns to earth in precipitation. Since MTBE does not adsorb well with
organic matter in soils it is easily washed away. In surface water, MTBE volatilizes
into the air, while in ground water, MTBE persists and moves freely. MTBE
occurrences in ground water above 40 ppb have so far been attributed to point

estimate of the TDS present, as conductivity is not precisely proportional to the
weight of an ion and nonconductive substances cannot be measured by electrical
tests.
Total Solids: The material residue left in the vessel after evaporation of a sample
and its subsequent drying in an oven at 103-105ºC. The increase in weight over
that of the empty vessel represents the total solids. Used in analyzing drinking
water.
Total Suspended Solids: The particles which can be removed from a solution by
filtration, usually specified as the matter which will not pass through a 0.45 micron
pore-diameter filter.
Toxic: Poisonous or harmful.
Toxicant: An element or compound with a harmful or lethal effect on the
physiology, behaviour, reproduction or survival of an organism.
Toxicity: A measure of how poisonous a toxin is to an organism.
Toxicity test: A bioassay to determine the toxicity of a chemical or an effluent
using living organisms, a toxicity test measures the degree of response of an
exposed test organism to a specified concentration of chemical or effluent sample,
living organisms are subjected to varying dilutions of polluted water or water
containing known amounts of presumed or known toxins or contaminated
sediment, mortality, declines in reproductive rates or behavioral changes indicate
a toxic response.
Toxin: A compound or element which is toxic or poisonous in common usage.
More strictly a toxin is a natural toxicant made by an organism as opposed to
poisons manufactured by man.
Toxic Substances: Chemical elements and compounds, such as lead, radon,
benzene, dioxin, and numerous others, that have toxic properties by either
ingestion, inhalation, or absorption into the human body. There is considerable
variation in the degree of toxicity among the various toxic substances and in the
exposure level that induces toxicity.
Trihalomethanes (THMs): A group of organic chemicals, suspected of being
carcinogenic, which are formed in water when chlorine being used as a
disinfectant reacts with natural organic matter such as humic acids from decayed
vegetation. Humic acids are present in all natural water used as sources of
drinking water supplies. Chloroform is one of the most common THMs formed in
this type of reaction.
Turbidity: The amount of small particles of solid matter suspended in water as
measured by the amount of scattering and absorption of light rays caused by the
particles. Turbidity blocks light rays and makes the water opaque. Turbidity is
measured in nephelometric turbidity units (NTU). Potable water should not exceed
0.3 NTU. Turbidity cannot be directed equated to suspended solids because white
particles reflect more light than dark-colored particles and many small particles will
reflect more light than an equivalent large particle.
Tourmaline: Now, as a mineral, it has become a focus of research at universities
and research centers worldwide. The reason - infrared Tourmaline is the only one
mineral to show permanent electricity on the earth and is also a natural (nonmanufactured) source of negative ions and far infrared (FIR) rays. It is also known
to be helpful for improving circulation, relieving stress, increasing mental alertness
and strengthening the immune system function.
Ultrafiltration: A method of cross flow filtration (similar to reverse osmosis but
using lower pressures) which uses a membrane to separate small colloids and
large molecules from water and other liquids. The ultrafiltration process falls
between reverse osmosis and microfiltration in terms of the size of particles
removed, with ultrafiltration removing particles in the 0.002 to 0.1 micron range,
and typically rejecting organ-ics over 1,000 molecular weight while passing ions
and smaller organics.
Ultraviolet (UV) Light: Radiation (light) having a wavelength shorter than 3900
angstroms, the wavelengths of visible light, and longer than 100 angstroms, the
wavelengths of x-rays. This wavelength puts ultraviolet light at the invisible violet
end of the light spectrum. Ultraviolet light is used as a disinfectant.
Uniformity Coefficient: The measure of the variation in particle sizes of filter and
ion exchange media. The coefficient is defined as the ratio of the sieve size that
will permit passage of 60 percent of the media material by weight to the sieve size
that will permit passage of 10 percent of the media material by weight. A uniformity
coefficient of 1.00 denotes a material having particle grains all the same size;
numbers increasingly greater than one denote increasingly less uniformity.
Upstream Side (of filter): The feed side of the filter.
Vacuum: The depression of pressure below atmospheric pressure.
Validation: Demonstration that a process or product does what it is supposed to
do by challenging the system and providing complete documentation.
Vessel: A container, usually used as alternatively to the word housing e.g. filter
vessel.
Virus: A parasitic infectious microbe, composed almost entirely of protein and
nucleic acids, which can cause disease(s) in humans. Viruses can reproduce only
within living cells. They are 0.004 to 0.1 microns in size, and about 100 times
smaller than bacteria.
Volatile: Evaporates easily, converts easily from liquid form to gas.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): Volatile Organic Compounds are
compounds that vaporize (become a gas) at room temperature. Common sources
which may emit VOCs into indoor air include housekeeping and maintenance
products, and building and furnishing materials. In sufficient quantities, VOCs can
cause eye, nose, and throat irritations, headaches, dizziness, visual disorders,
memory impairment; some are known to cause cancer in animals; some are
suspected of causing, or are known to cause, cancer in humans. At present, not
much is known about what health effects occur at the levels of VOCs typically
found in public and commercial buildings.
Wastewater: Effluent water carried downstream from a filtration or separation
process.
Water Breakthrough Test: An integrity test for hydrophobic filters in which the
resistance to water flow is overcome by a specific pressure such that water will
flow through a correspondingly specific pore size of the filter. Also called a water
intrusion test. Useful test to determine gross loss of integrity (e.g., installation
integrity) and filter hydrophobicity.
Water cycle: The natural pathway water follows as it changes between liquid,
solid and gaseous states, biogeochemical cycle that moves and recycles water in
various forms through the ecosphere, the circuit of water movement from the
oceans to the atmosphere and to the Earth and back to the atmosphere through
various stages or processes such as precipitation, interception, runoff, infiltration,
percolation, storage, evaporation and transportation.
Water Hammer: The shock wave or series of waves caused by the resistance of
inertia to an abrupt change (acceleration or deceleration) of water flow through a
water piping system. Water hammer may produce an instantaneous pressure
many times greater than the normal pressure. For this reason, many building
codes now require the installation of a "water hammer arrestor," a device to
absorb these shock waves and prevent damage to appliances such as washing
machines.
Water pollution: Degradation of a body of water by a substance or condition to
such a degree that the water fails to meet specified standards or cannot be used
for a specific purpose.
Water quality: A term used to describe the chemical, physical and biological
characteristics of water, usually in respect to its suitability for a particular purpose.
Water quality criteria: Scientifically derived ambient numerical values for physical,
chemical or biological characteristics of water, biota or sediment which must not be
exceeded to prevent specified detrimental effects from occurring to water uses,
recommended concentrations, levels or narrative statements that should not be
exceeded in order to protect the life or health of organisms.
Water quality standard: Law or regulation that consists of the designated use or
uses of a waterbody or a segment of a waterbody and the water quality criteria that
are necessary to protect the use or uses of that particular waterbody.
Water Softener (mechanical): A pressurized water treatment device in which hard
water is passed through a bed of cation exchange media (either inorganic or
synthetic organic) for the purpose of exchanging calcium and magnesium ions for
sodium or potassium ions, thus producing a softened water which is more
desirable for laundering, bathing, and dishwashing. This cation exchange process
was originally called zeolite water softening or the Permutit Process. Most modern
water softeners use a sulfonated bead form of styrene/divinylbenzene (DVB)
cation resin.
Water Softener Salt: Salt suitable for regenerating residential and commercial
cation exchange water softeners. Most commonly used for this purpose is sodium
chloride (NaCl) in crystal or pelletized form. Rock grade salt should be 96-99
percent NaCl; evaporated salt should be 99+ percent NaCl. Potassium chloride
(KC1) may also be used for the regeneration cycle in the cation exchange process,
thus minimizing the amount of sodium added to both the softened water and the
spent regenerant water going to the drain.
Water Softening: The reduction/removal of calcium and magnesium ions, which
are the principal cause of hardness in water. The cation exchange resin method is
most commonly used for residential and commercial water treatment. In municipal
and industrial water treatment, the process can be lime softening or lime-soda
softening.
Water Source: The basic origin of a water, either a surface source (such as a lake,
river, or resevoir) or a subsurface source (such as a well). After treament and
pumping via pipe lines, the treated and pumped water becomes a water supply.
Water table: The level below the surface of the earth at which the ground
becomes saturated with water, the surface of an unconfined aquifer which
fluctuates due to seasonal precipitation, the top of the water surface in the
saturated part of an aquifer.
Water treatment: A method of cleaning water for a specific purpose, such as
drinking water, irrigation water or discharge to a stream.
Well: A bored, drilled, or driven shaft, or a dug hole, whose depth is greater than
the largest surface dimension and whose purpose is to reach underground water
supplies or oil, or to store or bury fluids below ground.
Wet Distillers Grain (WDG): A co-product of drymill ethanol production and a
valuable feed for livestock. Wet distillers grain (WDG) is not as easily
transportable, but the cost of drying the product is removed.
Zeolite: Zeolite is a type of adsorbent for removal of certain odors. It has, by its
unique pore size, an affinity for low molecular weight compounds, specifically
ammonia. Zeolites are minerals that have a micro-porous structure. Quite common
mineral zeolites includes: analcime, chabazite, natrolite, phillipsite, and stilbite.
Zeolites are the aluminosilicate members of the family of microporous solids
known as "molecular sieves". Zeolites are widely used as ion-exchange beds in
domestic and commercial water purification, softening, and other applications. In
chemistry, zeolites are used to separate molecules (only molecules of certain sizes
and shapes can pass through), as traps for molecules so they can be analyzed.
Zooplankton: Primarily microscopic animals which swim freely in the water
column or are carried about by water currents, many feed on phytoplankton and
are in turn a staple diet of small fish.
