Polypropylene Cyst Reduction Cartridges
Water borne disease has been traced to Cryptosporidium and Giardia parasites that may be present in many surface water sources. Healthy individuals typically recover from the common gastrointestinal effects, however for individuals with weakened or underdeveloped immune systems, it can be life threatening. These naturally occurring organisms are highly resistant to inactivation by conventional water treatment processes such as chlorination and thus require high performance mechanical removal technologies.
In order to ensure the safety of the water supply, standards have been established that define the minimum performance requirements for materials and components of water treatment systems. The QCR Cyst Reduction filter contains an absolute 1 micron filter media designed to provide a minimum log reduction credit of >3.0 for Cysts based on the test requirements of the Long Term 2 Enhanced Surface Water Treatment Rule (LT2).
