How do RapidPure UltraCeram filterswork?
Rapid Pure Ultra Ceram filters do not just capture contaminants that impinge the filter element. The electropositive media attracts and retains viruses, cysts and bacteria. Its electropositive fibrous media has high particle removal efficiency as well as 50 to 250 time’s greater dirt-holding capacity than its competitors.
RapidPure filters are also infused with activated carbon and silver. Silver is a self-sanitizing agent that kills bacteria, preventing growth of captured bacteria.
RapidPure UltraCeram is a particulate and electro adsorbent filter. Depending on the laboratory test method the RapidPure media can be plugged with pure solutions of humic acid, bacteria or particulates to the point where water will no longer flow through the media under normal operating pressure of the device.
RapidPure will also adsorb dissolved contaminants such as lead, cadmium, iron, certain forms of arsenic, zinc and others that pass through hollow fiber and other mechanical filters.
In the real world no water stream is “pure”. All waters contain some mix of contamination that will eventually cause any filter to fail to reduce one contaminant or the other. This is why RapidPure has designed a family of filters to allow the user to select the best combination of filters for their particular application.
Certified Performance by Third-party Testing
RapidPure filters have been tested by an independent, certified laboratory using accepted test methods for the reduction of pathogens using filtration devices. The industry established test methods define the contaminants, their concentration and how the test should be conducted. The challenge solution used in testing the Rapid Pure filter contained virus concentration of 3.65 x 105 (3,650,000 virus) per milliliter of water. Bacteria concentration was 3.45 x 105 (3,450,000 bacteria) per milliliter of water. This would be a total of 70.5 TRILLION pathogens in a liter of water! To help put this number into perspective, it would be similar to the discharge of a municipal sewage treatment plant or that of a highly polluted river such as the Ganges.
