How do Dafi filter cartridges work?
- 02 Jul, 2021
Dafi filter cartridges provide users with fresh and clean water. The use of filter jugs is also very ecologically beneficial and saves your money. One filter provides about 150-200 l of water (depending on its quality), which corresponds to about 30 days of use. How it happens that the filter purifies water, what it consists of and how it works, you will learn in this article.
There are two filter layers inside the filter cartridge. Each of them actively performs two distinct functions. The top part of the filter traps mechanical impurities such as sand or rust, while a so-called filter mesh traps grease and foam.
One of the components of the filter cartridges is activated carbon, which is responsible for the absorption of many harmful substances. Among them, we can mention chlorine, detergents, herbicides, pesticides and organic substances. We also owe active carbon to the improvement of the taste of tap water and the neutralization of unpleasant odors.
How does activated carbon work? Well, its structure is porous, thanks to which it attracts and attaches harmful substances from water to its surface. Additionally, due to the fact that the carbon is impregnated with silver, it also prevents the growth of microorganisms.
The ion exchange resin is the second component that is inside our filter cartridge. Its task is to remove excess magnesium and calcium salts from the water - in short, softening the water. We all know the problem of hard water and scale build-up in various household appliances that shorten their lifespan. What else does resin do? Specifically, it is capable of eliminating some heavy metals, such as lead. In addition, it enriches water with magnesium, increasing its pH, thanks to which it has an alkaline reaction that is beneficial for the body, which in turn has deacidifying properties.
The filter cartridges are constructed in such a way that they allow the circulation of water and thus its even filtration. The filter cartridges themselves are steam sterilized before being packed, which means they are immediately ready for use.
