- Input turbidity: 12 TU
- Effluent turbidity: Initial: 0.8 TU
- Effluent turbidity: 50%: 0.9 TU
- Model: Pacific Sands Hose Filter
- Flow Rate: 2 GPM
- Temp range: 35F-100F
- Working pressure range: 20-100 psi
The Pacific Sands Hose Filter is a combination of granular activated carbon (GAC) and a reduction/oxidation media that is classified by the EPA as a bacteriostatic. The combined media reduces or eliminates these contaminants:
Chlorine and its byproducts (THM’s)
Volatile Organic Contaminates (VOC’s)
Hydrogen sulfide (rotten egg smell)
The Pacific Sands Hose Filter has been tested to applicable NSF 42 & 53 standards by an independent lab to reduce and/or eliminate all contaminants listed. There are hundreds of other contaminants that the filter reduces and/or eliminates.
Calcites and lime/scale:
The Pacific Sands Hose Filter alters the molecular structure of calcite which inhibits its clinging capability. Calcium ions are removed from the water which changes calcite lime/scale deposits into aragonite. This alteration causes the lime/scale to remain suspended in the water where it cannot cling to equipment.
All materials used in the Pacific Sands Hose Filter are approved by the FDA for contact with foodstuffs including potable water. All thermoplastic/thermoset plastics used comply with the NSF standard 14.
