Sediment filter cartridges are specialised in removing all particulate matter from your water, sediment cartridges are also ideal to serve as pre-filters.
The micron rating of a filter cartridge determines the ability of the filter’s media to remove contaminants by the size of particles it is exposed to. For example, a filter that is marked or rated “10 micron” has some capability to capture particles as small as 10 micrometers. Although, the micron rating does not determine the exact efficiency of contaminant holding capability of the filter, it will help you determine which filter is most suitable according to your water supply.
Sediment cartridges offer a simple means of filtration. The materials of a Sediment cartridge provide a resilient barrier to bacterial/chemical influence – preventing any build of unwanted waste (e.g. algae).
These sediment filters are compatible with most liquids and are highly effective for sediment, rust, sand, silt, and algae removal.
