The S-filter is a pre-filter, which includes a calcium and membrane filter. It removes dirt, sediment, chlorine taste & odor from your water at the source. The S-filter requires no power to operate and easily connects with the Alkal-Life 7000sL.
This water filter is made up of calcium and membrane filters. Tap water flows through it from the bottom up:
- Special fibre pad layer – functions similarly to the sediment (pre-filter), controls the flow of particulates into the granular activated carbon filter.
- Granular activated carbon layer – made up of microscopic cavities that can trap the tiniest possible contaminants, like dirt and chlorine. TThis highly absorbent filter is made from processed coconut peels which have been process at high temperatures. It removes and absorbs organic compounds (trihalomethanes, bacteria), non-organic compounds (chlorine, arsenic) as well as odour and gaseous substances.
- Calcium sulfite layer – the water you drink may be chlorinated. To remove the chlorine from your water, calcium sulfite is added to the UF membrane filter. Calcium sulfite removes 99.9% of residual chlorine and improves& smell of your drinking water.
- Double non-woven fabric layer – Nonwoven fabric is a polyester fabric manufactured by means of the air-laid process, this durable and easy to care for material has many applications. Non-woven fabrics are used in many applications due to their excellent filtration properties and durability, such as those for surgical equipment and industrial purposes.
- The UF membrane filter consists of two layers of these fabrics. Second granular activated carbon and non-woven fabric layers – water first passes through a pre-filtering system that includes calcium and membrane filters before exiting your tap. UF membrane layer – The patented UF membrane is a hollow fiber filter made of hundreds of millions of tiny, interconnected cavities. The pore size is so small that impurities such as organic compounds and viruses can’t pass through the filter.
