This package includes enough filters for three years... Included in package is six 1 micron sediment filters (last 6 months each) and three 0.5 micron mid grade cartridges (last 12 months each)... The microtwin has been around through the ages and offers good filtration . Many people buy this system not because of the price but because it is often familiar and most have been it before. This product is highly mainstream and offers great value for money for those on a budget. *** ALL PLUMBING FITTINGS, STANDARD FAUCET SUPPLIED *** WATER FILTER WORLD WILL SEND YOU A REMINDER LETTER EVERY 12 MONTHS.
MID GRADE REMOVAL:0.5 micron,This filter will remove all chlorine, taste, colour, odour and bacteria like giardia & cryptosporidium is the most effective filter available for the combined reduction of cysts and control of large volumes and concentrations of chlorine taste and odor. Manufactured using a patented, solid-state extrusion process, meets NSF/ANSI Standard 53, Turbidity and Cyst Reduction, including Cryptosporidium, Giardia, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma. Made of “Genuine MATRIKX® Extruded Carbon,” is a rigid, carbon block composite designed to deliver chlorine taste and odor reduction at >99% @ 2.5 GPM for 10,000 gallons.is ideal for use in food service applications.

No. 069625-CT-001 1/05 MATRIKX® filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency. MATRIKX® filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular activated carbon ( cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon core. Service life of the MATRIKX® filter is greatly extended by a layer of prefiltration medium. • No channeling • No fluidizing • No bypassing • Eliminates release of carbon fines • Lowest extractables, pure materials of construction • Maximum service life and resistance to fouling • Graded density filtration design • Manufactured using FDA-compliant materials NOTES 1. Performance of a given MATRIKX® extruded carbon filter varies in direct proportion to the total weight of carbon in each filter. For example, a 4.25” O.D. x 20” L MATRIKX® filter contains approximately seven times as much activated carbon as a 2.50” O.D. x 9.75” L MATRIKX® filter, and will therefore have seven times the rated chlorine taste and odor capacity when operated at seven times the rated flow of the smaller cartridge. Hence, rated flow is based on maintaining identical contact/residence times for all filters. 2. Projected chlorine taste and odor reduction capacity when tested in accordance with NSF/ANSI Standard 42 protocol. 3. Nominal particulate rating (0.5 μm) is for >85% of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting results.* 4. Absolute particulate rating (1 μm) is for >99.9% of particles of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting results.** *Nominal Filter Rating: Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle, the majority of which will not pass through the filter. It is generally interpreted as meaning that 85% of the particles of the size equal to the nominal micron rating will be retained by the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97). ** Absolute Filter Rating: Filter rating meaning that 99.9% (or essentially all) of the particles larger than a specific micron rating will be trapped on or within the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97). WARNINGS: Maximum Operating Temperature: 125°F Maximum Operating Pressure: 250 psig Maximum Differential Pressure: 100 psid Collapse Pressure: 200 psid MATRIKX® filters are not to be autoclaved or steam-sterilized.
