ENSURING THE MOST ECONOMICAL SOLUTIONS
FOR OUR CUSTOMER APPLICATIONS

Cartridge & Bag filters



Iron and manganese are common in ground water supplies. Excess iron and/or manganese levels usually results in the following:

  • Discoloured water
  • Red, brown or black stains on laundry, fixtures or other surfaces in contact with water.
  • Metallic taste in beverages.
  • Rust build-up in water heaters and cooling systems.

Whilst the water supplied by the ground water source is often clear and colourless, it usually becomes discoloured once it comes into contact with air, causing iron and manganese to precipitate as rust.



Cartridge Filter options


Cartridge filter housings can hold the following types of cartridge:

    Stainless Steel multi-cartridge housings
  • Sediment removal cartridges
  • Washable strainers
  • Granular activated carbon cartridges
  • Activated carbon block cartridges
  • Water softening resin
  • Deionization resin
  • Scale removal crystals
  • pH adjustment crystals
  • Filtration, disinfection and taste & odour removal filter candles (see our residential water filter section for more information on filter candles and their uses)

Design Considerations.

In order to accurately size a cartridge filter for your residential, commercial or industrial application, we will need to know the following:

  • The amount of water you expect to use per 24-hour period.
  • Your peak water demand.
  • Operating hours per day.
  • Your water pressure.
  • The amount of suspended solids in your water. See our water analysis section for more information.
  • What you plan to use the filtered water for.

Your local approved CWC distributor can help you calculate your filtered water needs, and can arrange for a professional water analysis to be taken.
