Super Sterasyl™ Water Filtration Element

The Sterasyl™ ceramic is the ceramic shell used for the Super Sterasyl™ filter element.  Accordingly, this filter element will have, at a minimum, the filtration benefits of the Sterasyl™ ceramic.  Additionally, the bore of the ceramic shell is filled with granular activated carbon, which enables the filter to reduce chlorine and organic chemicals while improving the color, taste, and odor of the source water.  The re-cleanable Super Sterasyl™ filter elements remove suspended solids, parasites, cysts and pathogenic bacteria (>99.99%) and reduce organic chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, trihalomethanes, SOCs, VOCs and foul tastes and odors.  The top of the Super Sterasyl™ element is closed with a unique ceramic dome.  This prevents the possibility of breeching (leakage), which can occur with filtration elements that are closed with a plastic cap.

 

Super Sterasyl™ Filters:

Remove Pathogenic Bacteria: Cholera, Typhoid, Salmonella, Serratia, E.Coli, Fecal Coliform > 99.99% removal.  Remove Cysts (>99.999%): Cryptosporidium Parvum and Giardia Lamblia – 100% removal (based on tests by Arizona State University).  Reduce Organic Chemicals: Pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, SOCs, VOCs, trihalomethanes. Reduce Chlorine > 90% Reduce Turbidity, Sediment and Particulate: @ 0.9 micron > 99.99% @ 0.5 – 0.8 micron > 99.9% @ 0.2 – 0.3 micron > 98% (based on tests by Spectrum Laboratories, Minneapolis, MN).  Maximum working pressure: 125 psi Maximum working temperature: 100º F Minimum working temperature: 40º F Super Sterasyl™ ceramic filters are manufactured to the following international standards and have been tested and approved by the following independent bodies or agencies: ISO-9000: 2000, Hyder Labs – UK Spectrum Labs – UK WRc – Mednenham UK Clare Microbiology – UK Loughborough University – UK University of Arizona – USA Thresh, Beale, and Suckling – UK and WRc Gwent – UK.

    I don’t have one, just a question…
    I am looking at this system and the Berkey Light system
    ( http://www.directive21.com/products/berkey-light-water-purifier/ )
    What are the differences between the filters used in these two systems?

    (verified owner):

    If you feel your own tap-water tastes strange or have a strange odour or if you feel buying (plastic) bottled water expensive and wasteful (as far as plastic-production & plastic-disposal is concerned), or if you’d like to reduce your carbon-footprint, buy one of these systems!

    My Mother-in-law had been buying bottled water as she was convinced the local NY water supply didn’t taste good, so I bought one of these to filter the water. She now drinks it without any negative comment and it has saved over $500/year by not buying plastic-bottled water.

    It’s a five-star product which drops a star rating only because I feel that the tap at the base of the unit should be able to improve flow better than it does … it works fine when the base container is almost full, but flow is impeded when the base unit is about half empty.

    Nevertheless, a great portable buy and good to know that should a natural disaster strike locally, as seems to happen quite frequently now, we could deal with ditch-water if necessary, safely!

    We have one in the house we have now used for over a year. Big difference in water taste and clarity. I would never drink the city water straight up again.

    I do not see floride mentioned. Does it remeove floride?

      :

      Yes, but you will need PF4 Filters in order to reduce Fluoride in the water.
